Multiverse Triptych

Multiverse Triptych

A group of Stewartry Camera Club members made a visit to Crawick Multiverse last month and here you can see some of my colleagues racing off into the distance while I paused to capture these two fine mosaic panels at the entrance.

Despite their enthusiasm to get the first landscape shot on the way up the hill, it was yours truly who reached the top first, though there was some heavy breathing at altitude!

 

Crawick Multiverse

Crawick Multiverse

Crawick Multiverse is landscape artist Charles Jencks’ creation on the site of a former open cast coal mine in Upper Nithsdale.

The multiverse was created using material found at the site, including thousands of boulders half buried below the ground. The landscape represents various cosmic patterns and combines four opposite ecologies – grasslands, mountains, a water gorge and a desert. It takes you on a journey past the Milky Way to a supercluster of galaxies, and then to a multiverse. Well, that’s the story…..

It’s a place I would love to visit in the winter when there’s snow or frost on the ground.
