On our trek to Nairn Falls, I went down the hill to the stream and there were many inukshuks and stone stacks along the rocky shore. It was so nice to see that people respect each others work.
I always loved those close-up of stone stacks so I captured it with my widest focal range for the shallowest dof.

    Love the simple shapes of the stones used in this Inukshuk! That lens is just great at capturing the texture and detial on the rocks, and producing a great bokeh!" I love how the background is color blocked! Fabulous capture of light and composition Yannik!

  • Thx a lot Joanne, the colour blocking are shades of the shore, the river and the green trees on the other side :)
