Palm Trees

H IS FOR?

HANDS!
Reaching out to the sky on the shores of Derwentwater in the Lake District, these fine hands greet passing ramblers ~
















Don't hesitate to hurry to ABC Wednesday for more on the letter H!

  7. Except for the fact that it's a great sculpture, it's still a bit creepy to me. Great shots! :)

  8. Hi Anna, The hands are slightly creepy but definitely well crafted. How fun. I would have been right there with my camera too snapping photos.

  9. These are wonderful hands. Strong, and I hope helpful. They look big enough to sit on.

  13. When I first saw the photo of the hands, it took me aback a bit. I could see myself walking in some forest in some scifi story and all of a sudden a pair of hands would just pop up.

    Perhaps I watch too much telly...

  15. Wow! What an exciting example of public art! How neat to come across those in what would seem like a rather random way.
