An Appreciation of Stone (39)

It’s been awhile since we posted on one of my most favorite subjects-stone.

I thought I would remedy that with this image of a waterfall and stream bed of one of my former design projects. The job was installed in 2006 and I snapped the picture early last week.

The main falls and top area of stream.

[ Edge stone buried in help sell realism. ]

The taller flanking stones help frame the waterfall, making the falls appear ‘deeper’ than it actually is.

Those buried edge stone, variable depth, meandering stream lines, and plants that will grow(and filter water) and fill in-blurring the edge lines “all” help sell the naturalism of this project.

The goal is to get the observer to think that just ‘possibly’ this scene is “for real”.
