Autumn Art

"Line to follow colour rhythms in sycamore" by Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy, sculptor and photographer, lives in Scotland.  Some of his works are permanent but some like this one are ephemeral.   The coloured sycamore leaves follow a beck in north west Scotland somewhere near the Glenfiddich whiskey distillery. Possibly he put his feet up in the bar at night after completing this and drank a 'wee dram'. I was up there a couple of years ago on the beautiful Moray coast and drove past on the Grantown on Spey road, it is a sort of hot spot of distilleries,

Goldsworthy made this ten years ago on the 2 October, just as Autumn begins, touches of gold and red mix with the green, the season will soon gather pace.
