Photo Hunt " Dark"

This week's theme is dark.
I saw some very dramatic dark skies yesterday,
but I wanted a different approach on this theme.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, full of serendipitous events.
My husband and I made a photo hunting excursion,
we often do that lately. We get some healthy exercise,
while I take pictures, and try to get better at it.

We went for a walk in Deurle,
a beautiful and very artistic village near Gent.
I had never been there before but the village is a real gem.
There will be more pictures from there later on in the week.

This huge dark sculpture suddenly caught my eye.

It's a bronze, and it's called Mother Earth II.
It's made by a Belgian sculptress, Ann Deman.
If you click on this link, there is an interesting slide show
on the making of this sculpture.
I thought it would be perfect for this week's theme "dark",
and I made a few pictures from different angles.

There, this is my take on this week's theme.
