The Stones

Filed under: Misc.,Still Life — Frank @ 9:30 PM

I have a habit of collecting smooth stones as I wend my way through life. I picked up the stones shown here on the shores of Lakes Superior and Huron near the end of our trip this past fall. They have been sitting in a pile the garage since we arrived back home waiting to be photographed some day.

Today was that day. The weather was lousy this afternoon (snow squalls and cold) but the basement was warm since we started up the wood stove this morning. Thus, I spent some time playing with my rock pile.

The grid of stones is a composite. I photographed each rock individually and combined the images in Photoshop. It is easier to get consistent light across each stone that way. The stones are all small… roughly the size of quarter to a half-dollar.

Some of the stones used for the stacks are a bit larger, but none of the stacks is taller than about six or seven inches.

  1. And, by using Ps to stack they won’t fall over as easily 🙂

    Another area of conquest for Frank!
