Like this a lot it looks a very interesting place to visit, like your composition with the two paths leading left and right, I wonder what part of the sculpture the paths are?
Only comment is when viewed full screen the people and power lines distract from the shot, I would be tempted to clone them out, well seen and taken

I like this Helen, great pov to show off the 'attributes' of Northumberlandia.
The two diverging paths are just a tad distracting at first, but easy to ignore.
As I said a great pov, gorgeous colours and beautiful sky, luv it, well done.

Ahhh.. the first non-official photos I've seen of this so very welcome. From the thumbnail I was trying to work out what I was going to see and I think it was the paths mentioned by George that had me guessing. Impossible to get an impression of the overall figure from ground level like this but having seen the aerial view on TV, I can now see the face, nose and ...ummm.. parts of the chest Steve mentioned the power lines but it took me a second or two to see them so not an issue for me. Northumberlandia looks quite content to gaze up at that glorious sky.

I think it would be difficult to get the ideal composition of this without a helicopter, but you have managed that as I can follow the sculpture from the top of her head and on down towards her legs.
This is the first image of this I have seen and it looks very impressive, well done Helen.

Never heard of it so Googled it and most of the photos seem to be from above.
But this is pretty good Helen, makes for quite an abstract picture. You have chosen a good POV, but as said impossible to see the whole thing if you remain on the ground.
Must be interesting to walk around it, well done.

Thank you all for your comments The best view of this sculpture would be from above, it is quite impressive, plus on a very clear day you can see The Angel of the North, also you are supposed to be able to see Holy island, & Simonside Hills. It has never been really that clear for us to see them when we have ben up it. Yes Jeffrey interesting walking around as you can climb up & stand on each breast.breast lol:
