This image was taken in 2003 and has sold several times in the smaller sizes, but this is the first time a customer has specially requested it in the largest A1 size. It looks awesome :-) Purchased by Ms Jaynes of Lytham St Annes - (I know - Two customers from the same town in Lancashire buying Limited Editions in the same week, and with NO connection to each other! How amazing is that?).
Image description; as for "I Stood in Ore" in my "Anglesey Landscapes - Tirluniau Môn" book:
"A totally man-made landscape but on which the ever-changing and unique qualities of light and weather can play and transform the scene. In dull weather the colours go into hiding but when any strong light falls upon this mineral rich upheaval, an explosion of vivid saturated hues result. I have always been surprised at how quickly quarried landscapes become ironically acceptable, even normal. Piles of waste form new hillsides and valleys, acid pools become lakes and the clouds in a beautiful sky race overhead. Eventually the mosses and grasses may take hold and soften the scarred landscape making things even more acceptable? There is something eternally optimistic about this place, even though it has been ravaged by around 4,000 years of mining."
