Who Came Before Me?

Telascica Stones

At the Telašćica Nature Park in Croatia, there is a small section of the island with porous soil. Water seeps through to form a salt lake. Where the soil is porous there are lots of stones and the visitors have stacked them and made other formations with them. It makes me wonder who came here before me? How long as this pile been there? What message did the person who built it want to send? Maybe they were just having fun and I think too much.

It was sunny, the rocks were well lit and the photo was easy to take. A challenge in the sunlight is using an aperture large enough to give shallow depth of field, but small enough to keep the sunlight out. After trying a few settings, this is the photo that came out how I wanted it.
