Scotland Stone

14 Apr
April 14, 2013

Whether left in its natural state or transformed by hands using crude tools or by skilled stonemasons – in neolithic times, the Middle Ages, the Industrial Revolution and into the 1800’s – Scotland provided some beautiful examples of transformed stone to photograph. These stones contain wonderful colour and texture brought out by light and shadow and you can’t help but reach out to touch and run your hand along the surface.
