This sculpture combines characteristics of the shape of the mountains a few miles
to the east and the shape of a bird's wing. According to the plaque.
Composites should be planned and not cobbled, but I wanted to see if it was a good fit.
A wider-angle lens would have helped. Moving farther back to include the entire sculpture
would have included a street sign and a trip to the hospital (I was on the shoulder of a road
with very fast traffic).
Nikonian old-style resolution (I still use 200kb) and a less-than-sharp image
of the plaque renders it unreadable on-screen. Sigh.

The picture certainly illustrates the shape messages of the sculptor's intent. And the ratio between text and image (around 1/3 - maybe even "golden") works well.
If the text is readable other than compressing for the web post, this would make a fantastic postcard for the region.
Go sell it!

Perfectly chosen angle to appreciate the intention of the piece.
For the purpose of showing the sculpture it is probably best to have the sky as it is, featureless.
By the way, you can post it at 1200px wide and 300Kb.
Have a great time :-)
