iPhone Monday 10-20-14

I always smile when I see small stacks of stones placed carefully along a trail so this old beach log on the Washington coast stopped me in my tracks.  I don’t know if we are looking at the finished work of one artistic beachcomber or if several walkers left their markers in a row but I couldn’t leave the area without a few photos.

  1. Do you know of artist Andy Goldsworthy (one of my favorites)? Whenever I see stacks of stones I think of him. What a beautiful surprise to happen upon these cairns!


  2. Fascinating that what one assumes to be a series of passersby have been caught up in it, Lisa ! – and what a shot it makes !
    And such gigantic pieces of driftwood …!


      1. We have hundreds of miles of forest that follows the coast, M-R and when those trees come down they are washed into the water instead of resting on the ground. They roll around in the ocean until the next big storm throws them up onto a beach. We learn to stay away from the water during high winds!


  3. Did you, or the others, feel the need to add to it? It looks pretty perfect as it is that makes me think it was done by one person. Lovely shot. Thanks for sharing.


  4. Baby cairns–what a fabulous discovery. I’m a huge devotee of stone sculptures in and around the landscape. Andy Goldsworthy is a favorite land artist. You were able to capture such a layered image that works so well in monochrome. Well done. Happy Photo Challenge.


    1. Thanks, Andra. 🙂 We can’t take the credit but it would have made a fun afternoon project. Maybe we’ll do something in our yard with all the beach rocks that come home in Ryan’s pockets…


  5. Excellent job of composition, Lisa. I have to laugh a bit because I seem to be the only one who thinks those lovely rocks piles look a bit like droppings from some gigantic and very careful bird. 🙂 What fun to find this!



  6. Beautiful photo, Lisa. So many elements to look at and enjoy here. I love how the line of the tree trunk leads the eye right out to the rock formation out in the water. The row of cairns too are excellent.


  7. How cool – I have never seen this before – and I like your different angles.

    also, I enjoyed your “review” post – but whew -it took a while to load on my phone and then I think it may be the longest scrolling post ever – and what a joy – what a celebration – cool project – 🙂 ❤


    1. Thanks for all of your nice comments, Yvette! Sorry about the slow load though, I know it was a different post from my usual 1 photo style but thought the big finale deserved a big wrap up. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it!
