This is a shot I took last summer at a wholesale stone yard/quarry/fabricator in Central, Ohio. I was drawn to this stone because of it’s great color and potential to become a piece of art in the landscape. As stand alone elements or as a collection of pieces to create a “scene” in the landscape. Whether they are surrounded by plants or some sort of stone bed.
I have always liked going to stone yards and wandering through the back areas or junk piles. I just let my mind kind of wander and take in the scene. Also I look at the way the collections are piled together and think how I could turn that around and use that formation in some of my landscapes.
