Great color. I thought it was a painting at first.

There is nothing beautiful about another unneeded and unwanted cairn.

Cairns have been used by man for thousands of years. They are an important part of history especially in the mountains, where they have guided many lost climbers/hikers to safety.

I am not sure how this qualifies as Andy Goldsworthy style. Beautiful pic though.

I actually think the cairn distracts and takes away from an otherwise beautiful scene. (Andy Goldworthy's constructions always ADD to the scenery.)

Wow...what a beautiful scene. The cairn does detract though.
