S is for stones

I love stones! I always pick stones with med home wherever I am. I collect stones and I can really say: I am stone rich :)
These stones were too big though!

My photo is from the south of Sweden – Ales stenar – Ale stones.

Ales Stenar (Ale Stones), the mysterious "ship-setting" made of 59 large boulders set in a layout of a ship, 67 metre in length, 19 metre in breadth. This monumental stone formation is located just outside a fishing village of Kåseberga, approximately eighteen kilometres southeast of Ystad in Skåne, on an astoundingly flat, grassy headland that overlooks the narrow, pebbly beach of the Baltic Sea. The view from the Ales Stenar offers an open 180o sea horizon and simultaneously an open 180o land horizonAndrew M Kobos
