Arabella Stone creates some of the most amazing hardscaping using a technique called drystone masonry.  All of the blocks are fit together using no mortar – everything is shaped and stacked to fit perfectly.  Daniel is a true artist as is shown in this amazing showcase backyard in St. Paul, MN.  He included patios, a fountain, outdoor kitchen and a dining area in this masterpiece.

We photographed this at dusk to take advantage of the ambient lighting included as well as minimize harsh sun shadows from the heavy tree cover.  Wetting the features made everything look more polished and newer.  Long exposures smoothed the water and allowed us to get a sharp image in very low light.
