Confusion of Scale

How big is the stone in this image? Whilst one may make an educated guess, there's nothing concrete to allow you to form any conclusions as to absolute scale. In many ways I feel that this adds to a photograph, as it creates a sense of wonder, and makes the viewer contemplate the scene and what their ultimate relationship with it is.

Is that stone a permanent fixture? I'm sure I've seen it on a Mr Cornish picture too.. (not that I'm implying plagiarism, the photos are very different). We're planning next new year in Arran. Looks like a beautiful place.

Hi Tim,

Mr. Cornish was stood about three feet to my left when I took the picture!
