there is something so grave about stones that seem to hold inside them human qualities. They are a reminder of sorts that we can reach for more than the obvious. Love your first post too. Welcome to Shutterchance.
Gavin.: Suzanne thank you for the welcome and the kind words.

Is that "Thus Spake Zarathustra" I hear in the background :- ) ? This photograph reminds me of the monolith scene with the apes from Kubricks's 2001 a Space Odyssey!
Gavin.: Thanks Kathryn, I can certainly see where you are coming from. Although as I recall it was eerily silent wink
Well seen and captured, were obviously in the zone, and in the moment. I'd like to use this as a teaching image to show students how to successfully break the "Don't Center the Subject" rule, if I may. Welcome to SC.
Simply stunning. Everything works.
