“Amazing Scultpture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We walked along the seafront the visit this sculpture twice. Once in the morning when the sun was reflecting off it and got some lovely shots across the bay. Once in the evening when it was lit by the traffic and street lights and was very atmospheric. Could also see the John Lennon Peach Tower in the background.
Simple but effective, in a lovely location.

“Just go here for a photo op. Not much else to see, but really cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Great place to take photos! Day or Night, but avoid it when it's cloudy!

We spent about 30 minutes taking a bunch of photos. It's pretty easy to find. You can spot it if you look down the side street from the main shopping road. Just keep an eye out as you walk or just head straight there.

“Go at dusk for terrific pictures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great photo op across the bay with the sculpture in the foreground. Dusk added interesting reflections off the sculpture

“Fun night view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This was the best location to view the John Lennon Imagine Peace Tower at night. It's a cool place to get pictures of both and plenty of people watching. If you're lucky you will catch a glimpse of the northern lights. It was an easy walk from the city center and also has parking.

“Worth a visit day, or night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Beautiful sculpture. We saw it at night and during the day. Very near the concert hall on seafront. Easy to find. Take your camera.
