Granite Guardians by Stephen Ruane

These three large lichen coated, granite boulders stand like guardians at Squeaky Beach. You can get an idea of their size by the person standing next to them.
Squeaky Beach, Wilsons Promontory, Victoria, Australia.

Canon 7D, Canon 15 – 85mm IS USM Lens.

    Ok Steve you cant fool me…did you use all the red paint in the tin mate? You did a great job…missed a few bits though LOL. Fantastic effort. Love the brightness of this shot. Even the reflections are suttle but nice. And that guy standing there in the distance whats he doing? Is he painting the other side? hehe. :)

  • Bugger! There’s no fooling you!…every last drop… He is a she and I told her to use all the bloody paint on the side I was shooting… hard to find good help anywhere. ;-) Thanks my friend for another terrific comment and for the fav.
