Several months ago I wrote a little thing about creating zen rock stacks near my home in the Smoky Mountains. There seems to be an almost universal relationship between man and rocks that is reflected in the creation of these zen stacks.
Recently I traveled all the way up to the coast of Maine, to Acadia National Park. Walking out onto the rocky shoreline, what do I find but a bunch of zen stacks. These are beautiful granite stones shaped by glaciers and ocean waves. They’re irresistible! See how different the red granite above is from the Smoky Mountain river rocks pictured at the bottom of this page.
Go on out and stack some stones, wherever you are. And please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.
