Deer Shelter: a Skyspace by James Turrell

Deer Shelter, a stunning installation by renowned US artist James Turrell, is a permanent outdoor exhibition at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield.The constantly changing sky is framed within a sharp-edged aperture in the ceiling of this subterranean chamber in a converted deer shelter on the estate, drawing one’s eyes upwards and challenging one’s perception of depth and colour. It’s an incredible, immersive and engaging piece.

When I saw it for the first time a couple of months ago I knew it would be great subject matter for a panorama, but the park was so busy I wasn’t able to set up the kit and capture it properly. Today I was able to stop off on the way back from an appointment, rest and have a spot of lunch, all in this wonderful space. The result is almost unreal, but I can reassure the viewer that despite the hyper-real nature of the sky, there is no retouching or colour correction at all. Brilliant.
