This image is a composite. This stone structure resided in the private stone garden of the multi-billionaire and sophisticated art collectors, Jack and Susan Warner. At the rear of their massive Whispering Cliffs Estate in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, perched on a 400 ft. cliff overlooking a lake that is part of the Tennessee River, they had built a huge stone garden filled with all sorts of amazing hand-crafted Mexican stone art. In the summer of 2013, through a series of contacts, I was allowed to visit their estate to photograph the many beautiful stone statues and structures Jack and Susan had built. Upon entering the garden, I was immediately filled with a feeling of peacefulness, amazement,  and serenity when looking at this amazing structure and in fact just from roaming the vast stone garden. As a result of these feelings I created the scenario that is before you mirroring a quaint Mediterranean coastal setting overlooking the ocean that provides a haven of refuge from the difficulties that often accompany life. Tragically, Jack passed away a few years ago and Susan sold the estate soon after that.
