Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 11 July 2016 — Black Sand Beach, Vik, Iceland ::
The legend here is that the rock formations are 3 petrified trolls who were out too late pulling a ship into shore, and became petrified by the rising sun.
I made this style of balance due to the high winds coming in from the ocean… more of a quick creation at the time.. i didn’t like it much at the time.. now i like it more. .. . maybe cuz it stood through high wind as intended..! :) the overcast mood of that time and place grows in hindsight as well. . .beautiful, powerful, raw location! lots of other small rockstacks that people leave behind.. However this one is pure jedi style.. once it falls, it is nothing more than scattered pile of rocks, as it was before . .
