One of Andy Goldsworthy's series of four stone arches created high up in the hills at Cairnhead Forest. This one is the Byre Arch and is the only one accessible by road. To see the others you need to get walking. I arrived too late for that, but there will be a next time. Oh yes.
The British Ceramics Biennial runs in Stoke On Trent from 30 September to 13 November and is well worth the trip. As with all such things there are hits and misses, but there's enough here to spend an entertaining afternoon exploring. One highlight has to be that the main Biennial exhibition is in the old Spode factory - a huge space now filled with art, but which makes you wonder what the place was like when full of workers, kilns and machines.
And some great material to photograph.
There's a massive exhibition of works by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa at Yorkshire Sculpture Park at the moment. You may know him as the artist responsible for Dream - the 20m high sculpture of a child's head that can be seen from the M62. The works at YSP are varied from the striking to the subtle, but all are strangely beautiful in their own way. A must see.
