Wow! What a stunning sculpture in its grand scale as compared to Mrs. G!! I love that dynamic sky.

@Steven: Even more so compared to the person on the hill by it. But we must remember size isn't everything :)

Nicely shot. I got to tour the north of England and seeing the Angel of the North is almost overwhelming. So beautiful.
