End of day light on L'Observatoire in Lavau-sur-Loire on the north side of river Loire estuary between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire. This observatory is one of the perennial artworks of contemporary art openair exposure Estuaire that took place along river Loire esturay in 2007, 2009 and 2012. L'observatoire was built for the first edition in 2007 and was completed in 2009. The japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata, who lives and works in Paris and Tokyo, imagined footpaths in wood in the meadows and reedbeds of river Loire estuary. It allows visitors to experience a true immersion in nature. The footpaths lead to to a tower where you have a panorama on the estuary. This was one of the Estuaire workarts I had not seen yet but I was wrong because there was a unique atmosphere when I was there at sunset. I loved it !

La composition est dynamique du fait du point de vue assez bas qui permet aux lattes de bois de guider le regard naturellement vers ce mirador. La lumière dorée du soir est de toute beauté.

Joli cadrage avec les lames du premier plan guidant le regard vers la tour de l'observatoire.
En plus, on a un beau contraste orange-bleu.

love this! A gloriously chosen POV and light management that brings all the textures and beauty of the wood to life. It is so beautifully detailed and imaginatively presented. Artistic image of art - what more could we want. Superb!
Have a good week - B.

Good use of line and shape to suggest something underlying what it is that you are actually taking an image of. It indicates that design is an integral part of the objects around us with it's implicit geometry that alludes to the implicit abstract character of this image.
I really like it.
