Point and Shoot Competition #129 - Structure of Stones|

I love structures and especially those of brick or stone walls, natural stones, gravel, pebbles, street stones, whatever. Everybody can find something stony I think. So be creative, step out of your comfort zone and show me some beautiful stony details.
Edit to add: not photos of entire buildings made out of stone.



Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, interchangeable or fixed-lens 110 film.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close November 30, 2018 midnight EDT.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

9. Please indicate in some way where the photo was taken, what places you there, etc. or not if you want to keep it a secret until the end of the contest!


Below a few examples to get your imagination going.

Leaving my comfort zone (I live in the south of Spain), I got lost in the highlands of Scotland with my daughter, and in Oban I was struck by this stone structure on top of a hill, with a snowfall that It came without warning ... and gives it a timeless look ...
My dear Pentax Q-S1 endured the low temperatures well ..
The last photo I was shot shooting in analogy with my dear Pentax ME-Super..
I hope you like it
P.S. the malt whiskey is very good over there ...
Very nice photos Alayois and yes it's indeed a structure made out of stones, but that's not exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for the structure of the stone itself, not the entire building. Closeups of the surface of stony things, pebbles, grit or whatever. Like the examples below.

Just leave your photos here for others to see and enter some new ones for the competition.

Love your structures too David. Funny thing is that I thought with the second photo that I was looking up to the sky until I saw 'loose' stones in the air LOL that was the moment I discovered I was looking down in mirrored water. I fear I will have a hard time judging at the end of the month.
