The weather was a little overcast but that did nothing to dampen everyone's enthusiasm to get out and see all the truly wonderful sculptures, so many ideas, such creativity.
I wandered amongst the sculptures for a couple of hours with hundred's of other people, locals, tourists, artists and kids who excitedly climbed over everything climbable (unfortunately ignoring the many keep off signs). I don't know what the organisers expected though putting such interesting things in plays way.
The beach was a beautiful moody backdrop on an overcast day to the sculptures. The weather didn't stop the many surfers who were out taking advantage of a few good waves.
This is one of my favourites (of which I have many), it reminds me of seagulls all standing together on the beach. Unfortunately I can't include photos of every sculpture as there were 55 and I know that very shortly, pictures of all the sculptures will be added to the Swell Sculpture Festival's website so you can check them all out there. Congratulations to all the artists who participated and the Gold Coast City Council, the whole festival was fantastic.
