Wellington Statue

It was a case of just me and the Duke. I have decided to spend more time with each subject, to slow down, try various different angles. I came away thinking of other approaches I could take for this location. The statue is illuminated at night which could lead to some other possibilities. So I haven’t finished yet. If I do, I will update this post rather than create a new one.

The location is not far from where I live, just a short drive between Farnborough and Aldershot, there he is, standing proud.

You will find the story behind the statue of interest and may be surprised that he moved from London to his current spot in the 1800’s because Queen Victoria considered the statue an eyesore where it once stood on Wellington Arch, London.
