Detail, Pond and Sheep

09 Nov

The Natural History Museum is a beautiful piece of architecture. Click on any photo for the full detail.

The outdoor area has a couple of ponds where the golden Autumn leaves were floating and some curly coated sheep were mowing the grass.

      Sadly it was raining or I would have had more of the outside which is fascinating. I so admire all the workmanship that went into the magnificent building. 🙂

      The workmanship all over this wonderful building takes one’s breath away, so detailed, so very talented – and the designer……… Alfred Waterhouse created an extraordinary menagerie of terracotta designs worthy of a ‘cathedral to nature’. From the imposing gargoyles on the façade to the most delicate interior detail, every element of his design pays homage to the natural world. I love it! 🙂
