Stacked Rocks by Allan J Jones Photography
Stacked Rocks

I came across these on a small area of rocky beach in downtown Port Townsend. There were some additional cairns and I was amazed that they have remained for a significant period of time. I have done some rock piling … mostly while lazing around camp on a backpack on a river bed. But nothing that got as tall as these. (of course, river rocks tend to be more rounded, adding to the challenge)

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikkor 58mm

I invite you to visit my website  to view my photos in a gallery format. I also have some photo essays of hiking in Olympic National Park and some examples of other art I have done over the years. Thank you.

While the gull is the ‘focus’ of attention I really was drawn to the colors of the rocks and the water around the rocks. I may have to return and take more photos of the rocks. Hopefully I can do that, without the gull photo-bombing me!

(by the way, the gull was walking, not standing still with it’s leg in the air)

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400
ISO 400    1/1000 sec    f/16
