Landscape - Macro Monday

Rough

It's Macro Monday!

How do we combine 'landscape' with 'macro' and also tie in the prompt word "rough"?  Impossible?  Nothing is impossible!

I photographed a tiny cairn of rocks balanced precariously on the edge of a waterfall.  I wanted the roughness of the rocks to be in focus while still showing the beauty of the waterfall in the background.  

How did I do this?  I set my aperture to 4.5 and focussed on the cairn of rocks, which were about 6 feet from the waterfall.  The roughness of the rocks shows up in the macro portion of the prompt while the waterfall in the background satisfies the landscape theme!
