I like this image a lot Vince...what are those people doing?

Many thanks for the visit and the like. The shot was taken on Crosby beach just north of Liverpool. It is the home for an art installation by Antony Gormley.

Cast iron figures which face out to sea, spread over a 2 mile (3.2 km) stretch of the beach between Waterloo and Blundellsands. Each figure is 189 cm tall and weighs around 650 kg.

In common with most of Gormley's work, the figures are cast replicas of the artist's own body. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea. The figures were cast at two foundries, Hargreaves Foundry in Halifax, West Yorkshire, and Joseph and Jesse Siddons Foundry in West Bromwich.

Just type another place into google for more info.

Best regards

Oh...amazing! Must make swimming a little dangerous? Definitely no surfing there then Vince! :))

Cheers, Pam.
