Very nice. I like the variation in colour and shape.
I love stone walls! There were lots in New England. Not so much down here in PA.
Would that be a tight grained, Carboniferous sedimentary rock consisting of quartz, mica, feldspar, clay and iron oxides?Down here we use a yellow oolitic limestone.
I can see the gnarled fingers with dirt-encrusted nails that made this wall... nice minimalist photo...
My younger son builds dry-laid stone walls that are works of art.I was amazed at the miles and miles of stone walls we saw in Scotland -- the amount of man hours that went into them must be staggering.
My father's father (my grandfather) had a farm and all the kids (my uncles) worked on it with my dad. He said they spent years just hauling stones to the edges of the fields to make stone walls. And, he said, the walls were filled with snakes that would chase him and his brothers.A frightful nightmareno doubt remembered;with knees pulled up to his chest;I asked him what he saw.He said, "Snakes are after me,"and he panted, out of breathHe was lying down on his day bed. dying of cancer. My dad.
