I know there must be some kind of name or term used for ‘Stacked Stones’ but up to now I can’t find one, perhaps you’ll know and tell me? Anyway, I thought I’d try making my own Stacked Stones still life which I am really happy with.

I took the shot after stacking the five stones on top of each other on a beach in St. Ives, Cornwall, England. I used the close-up setting on camera making the stones look huge and more like boulders. I hope you like what I have here and any comments good or otherwise are welcome. Thank you.

I dedicate the shot to my brother Ken, who passed this life over 10 years ago 2 days from his 50th birthday he like creating things like this.
So to Ken with love, I miss you brother and think of you every day.

F-stop f/10
Exposure 1/160 sec
ISO speed 100
Manual Priority
RAW setting in camera
Focal length 30mm on an 18 to 55mm Nikon standard zoom lens.
Edited in Photoshop Elements 10 to add a little sharpness and colour boost.

*It’s NOT the camera which makes a photographer good, it’s only the photographer.

The same applies when; buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer, it makes you a Nikon owner.

Our creative juices flow and we capture the moment.

I hope you like the work I have captured and thank you so much for looking today.

    Great angle! Are these called: Cairns? I…live within yards of a river, and often see the riverstones stacked very high, but most start large and finish off with smaller ones. YOU….did Well, Tony!

  • Hey Jacque thank you so much for your kind comment. You might be right with the name but I am still not sure
