Nice stones, thank you!
I wish I could have shown scale better. This rock wall would have impressed even the ancient Hawaiian builders. ~2-3 yrs. old, it's around 50' high! Big stones at bottom are 6'-7'.
C&C appreciated. I masked the blown out sky and dropped in a properly exposed one.
Well ive been wanting to get some photos of this for awhile, and this weeks assignment gave me the insentive I needed. Not sure how well it fits in catagory maybe I shoulda cropped out the truck.

Here is my "stone"
Well, I had to take a couple of weeks off due to my work. But here I am, back to school ... Here is my stone...
My SmugMug Galleries
First one is a solid rock!
On a second one rocks really compete with the pines..
I really like that first shot. I plan to go back and try it again under different skies.
Here is one I took the other day when the rocks were wet and looking rather different. Curious as to whether catching this child looking up in wonder gives emphasis or competition to the rocks above? Thanks.
It's a good one... My only concern is you "the other day" comment... Did you took this shot (and other ones from this series) with this class theme in mind?
Yes, I did. In fact, it had been over ten years since I had visited this park but I went back (with my young grandson) three times in the past two weeks with this assignment in mind. I remembered those rocks! And I borrowed a wide angle lens from one of my sons to help me get some of those shots. The 24-105 L lens just isn't wide enough.
I already had some photos I thought would work for the stone assignment, but then I "caught" my grandson staring up at the rocks. He had been nervous around the rocks the week before but started "interacting" with them right when it was time to leave. I remembered that people in these stone/rock photos were OK if they contributed to a sense of scale or didn't become the focal point, so I turned my camera back on to see what I would get.
I also took several shots at this park with the vanishing point assignment in mind but not sure yet whether I will use them.
