Photograph of David Stammers pebble "Perfection". Best in show, Pebble of the Year awards 2006. The judges noted "An excellent shingle pebble from Eastbourne. This pebble, measuring 43mm at its widest, fits perfectly into the hand. It is smooth and well rounded, with a dynamic surface, optimal sheen, well-balanced proportions and is pleasurable in the pocket. Moreover, it is somewhat evocative of an egg."
