This balance seemed a completely hopeless task considering the constant wind and fading daylight. but i sat with it anyway… beginning to doubt if i could make it work in time… but i still worked for hours before finally reaching zero… in perfect time to record a few photos with the best ambient light and the small window of time these rocks stood in balance… (max 10 minutes) …

A recurring aspect in my practice is facing west while i balance, as if the rocks have secretly tricked me into a daily ritual of sunset worship… there are few things in my life that match the beauty of balanced rocks together with sunsets. it will never get old. like glimpsing the divine…. and especially hitting these minute rhythms of time, space, gravity, and light… i can look at these images for hours simply because they empty my mind and relax my spirit. along with the vivid memories they trigger of the experience.


big shout out to my friend Lena, here in Pula, who let me come along with her and some friends to this spot, (which required a car to reach)… we finished the day off with a nice cold beer (my favorite after balancing) at a really beautiful outdoor beach bar on the southern edge of the Istria region. . .
