I live for rocks and sunsets. never gets old. <3
a. second variation during sunset. notice the HUGE burn scaring on the background mountains.
b. third variation. post sunset. + remote flash
c. third variation. chillin in the dark.
despite everything being fine, sky on fire, i changed the arrangement mid sunset because i wanted to see without the blocky rock.
removing one rock and flipping the rock below it (right <–> left), while keeping everything above the blocky rock more or less the same, made a huge change in the flow and CURVE of the finished arrangement. not to mention i enjoy racing the sun. :))
if you’re curious, the FIRST variation (not pictured here) was exactly like the second, but minus the third rock down (the long rounded rock hanging out to the right)
favorite variation? definitely the third. (thanks to trusting my impulse)
favorite atmosphere? during sunset.
but it’s all pretty damn beautiful. <3
Colorado Springs, CO, USA
This visit to Colorado Springs was to help care for a family member during surgery. So i figure, I can worry, which is generally a “misuse of imagination”, or I can practice peace and positivity while at the same time putting forth healing intentions. <3
“I began to understand that suffering and disappointments and melancholy are there not to vex us or cheapen us or deprive us of our dignity but to mature and transfigure us.”
― Hermann Hesse, Peter Camenzind
Looks like the big island of Hawaii, very cool!
One of the yoga principles is detachment. Suffering and disappointments and melancholy are caused by our attachment to the thing that causes us the pain and disappointment and melancholy.

LOVE what you do! you are down here where I am!….yes, the burn scar.
Not just beautiful, but make a person feel peace and connection and bring a smile. I don’t think there are words to explain really, but thank you for sharing!

Wonderful pictures. Where is this? New Mexico?
actually they do not have that purpose — it is you who decides to use them for that purpose
#1 but Like em all!
I want to learn how to begin doing this. Do you ever sit with people and give guidance?
The little rock, second one down messes with my mind. Love your work, but you really got with this one. Like as much as the hot air balloon.
Post sunset is my favourite <3
Once again you prove that size doesn’t matter, but placement certainly does!;-)
Love them all! The 2nd is my fav :)
All 3 are magnificent

“You can open to a state of being where there are no conclusions, where your mind is wide open, where your consciousness is at ease, and where you can begin to touch upon a whole new dimension of consciousness, a consciousness that actually is at peace.”

At the deepest depth of despair, one finds the exaltation of Joy.
