Steel City Sunset
Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 18-135mm f3.5~5.6 R LM OIS WR at 29mm, 1/100s, f9, ISO 400
I popped up to Sheffield on Saturday to view the exhibition of images from last year’s Photo Marathon Sheffield that both I and my wife took part in…
Heading back to the railway station (and The Sheffield Tap for a cheeky pint…) I noticed the sunset was being reflected in ‘The Cutting Edge’ an 89m long stainless steel installation by Si Applied Ltd (Chris Knight, Brett Payne and Keith Tyssen) and Keiko Mukaide.
The Cutting Edge – ‘A sinous stainless steel blade gaining in height as it runs downhill towards the station entrance. The smaller end of the piece is almost circular in cross section and decorated with backlit glass work by Mukaide; the station end is a very thin ellipse also with backlit glass by the same artist. It is also lit along the length of its base.’
