An Appreciation of Stone (10)

posted, 09/24/06
Somewhere in Southeastern Ohio

300 million plus year-old sandstone formation. The younger sandstone at the top is harder than that below, accounting for the awesome overhang.

I also appreciate the interplay of light and shadow, something all designers should work for.
Though we rarely get to work at this scale. From the top of the ledge to bottom of the
“hollow” is over 90 feet.

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

    Beautiful! Similar structures can be found in the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. I went there several years ago for a week of horseback riding/camping. It was both trecherous and breathtaking…especially when you ride your horse to the edge of a ravine with a 150 foot drop!
