Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Yesterday we took a day trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Summer showed up unexpectedly, and I had a lovely day flouncing about the grounds and getting mild sunstroke. The Henry Moore sculptures looked very much like an extension of the landscape, rising up gently over the grassy slopes. I was introduced to Jaume Plensa, and spent some time looking round the indoor exhibition rooms containing his work. Aside from being a brief escape from the sun, the sculptures really were strange and intriguing to look at.
 I was transfixed by these sculptures! I couldn't get over how much they looked like projections. 
Very nice day out, would be especially nice on a crisp, cold wintery
day too.
