Skipping Stones

Can you imagine?  Look at this massive pile of stones that had washed up on the shore of Little Cranberry Island (Islesford) off the coast of Bar Harbor, Maine.

It may be hard to get a perspective, but this scene does not go "out" but "up."  The stones at the bottom of the picture are at my feet and the pile rises straight up - the ocean is on the other side. 
I had to ask our friend, Soos, to stop the car so that I could photograph this.  And while I framed the picture, I couldn't help but think of all the artists that would love to get their hands on this natural bounty.
Like to skip stones?  You would have a field day...

This is a beautiful sight. I would want to scoop up a few and take them home :)
