North Devon Images Now On-Line
Our latest adventure to North Devon gave us an opportunity to visit some new and interesting places for taking photo's. Barnstable made a great base and gave us the chance to travel to Clovelly, Hartland Quay, Lynmouth and Lynton, Wollacombe and, of course, Ilfracombe.
We enjoyed Ilfracombe and discovered 'Verity' there. She's a 60 foot tall 'Damian Hirst' creation. In his usual style, this bronze goddess has been created to stimulate debate about his work - some find it shocking, others are in awe of this statue. It depicts a pregnant woman, holding scales in one hand and thrusting a sword skyward with the other. Hirst has 'peeled back' the skin on one side to reveal muscle, bone and the growing foetus. As with all 'art' this creation is subjective to the viewer - a bit like Marmite - you either love it or hate it..!
We had a great day by the river at Watersmeet, but the weather was too good (can you believe it..!) to get the 'moody' images we enjoy creating. The dogs enjoyed the water though and Chris got a great shot of Raven shaking the water off after a good swim.
Clovelly was a delight. With steep, cobbled streets, it's not the easiest of villages to explore on a wet day..! But what a treat - walk down to the harbour for a pasty and back up to the New Inn for a Devon Cream Tea..! Both strategically placed to ensure sustenance is available just when you need it..! We had a lovely day here and it's defiantly a place we will return to one day.
