The composition is good in this one Barbara with the blossom giving a softness to contrast with the grittiness of the stone wall. Great texture.

The Romans were good at them. Wink I love the contrast here, I am very fond of stone walls. I have to be, there are so many stones and boulders in our region in the north that there are stone walls everywhere, a good way to dispose of some of them.

Lovely contrasts in textures. This isn't actually dry stone walling, there's cement in there, but the effect is right.
very well thought out shot. PS hello :-p

Yes dry stane walls are so cleverly built and labour intensive work.
Good image with the blossom to soften the brickwork.

Dunno why they call them dry stone.
They still get wet when it rains !!

Lovely combination. The stones and the flowers compliment each other so perfectly.

A great image,But I must Agree with Moira and say that this is not a Dry stone Wall.This wall has some Mortar in between the stones.I have a dry stone wall around the church in my image yesterday and a few day's back when I was looking for Billberries,all they havein these are some lovely stones.
I hope you dont mind me say thisSmile

Nice contrast between the delicate flowers and the solidity of the wall. Thanks for the mention about the review the other day. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough off the mark.! Thanks anyway.

Walling is such a skill, i can wall (badly), but basically it all boils down to the right stone in the right place.

Great stone detail and the flower are so beautiful!!

You have touched a sore point with me because when we lived in the Dales I enrolled in a Dry Stone Wall building course and was looking forward to it.
It was cancelled due to lack of interest much to my disappointment.

Every Dale has it's own unique manner of style of building probably due to the stone used.
