Photo: Horse's head and camel's head

This photo shows one of the horses in the Water Mark sculpture framing the head of Camelback Mountain in the distance.

This is a classic photographic technique of combining subjects in the foreground and background to add depth and interest.

Aluminum seems like a good material for outdoor sculpture, as it will not rust and is light weight. I wonder why it is not used more. Maybe it is difficult to work with, as this sculpture was made from welded sheets, not poured into a mold like bronze.

This week we are showing photos of the subtle beauty of nature in Yosemite National Park on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

That is a lot of welding to fabricate all of the joints in the horses.
