Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 09 February 2016 — Kaplankaya, Turkey ::
for a bit of size reference.. . .
most people were a bit tripped out by the seemingly enormous size of this rock… when in reality, it was prolly the smallest top rock i used for any of my creations here at #Kaplankaya. also in the reference photo you can better see the small notch on which it sat…. the balance itself was still quite challenging and most sensitive to wind out of any others, mostly due to low friction rocks and the angle at which the top contact rested. also illustrates the creative dexterity of photography through simple manipulation of focal length and perspective. both photos shot at 24mm. so now you know!
ah… perspective… and the joy of balance..
*Speechless* in a GOOD Way!!!
how many times did that fall so you had to make it again and again? o.O
Can’t wait to try this out in Stoney Brook NY this summer. Water, rocks, sun. Perfect
How do you do that?
Have you seen Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time?
You are one with the earth ❤️
If I had time I’d paintshop a couple tiny humans on top the rock that’s just above the horizon pointing to the left. That’d really mess with the perspective.
GG, you are extraordinary! I recognize this specimen as the original PacMan.
Sorry! I still think it’s amazing! Nice try! :D
César Øvalle, tô começando a ficar puto com esse cara HAHAhAh
Não acredito em nada haha
Vaga Four Leaf
Ha, when I saw that little notch it all makes sense.
Zafod Bíblbrox tohle musime zkusit,treba az pojedem na vodu !!! :)
Awesome talent and art form. Each one of these no matter the size never ceases to amaze me!
I still think it’s the Millenium Falcon… haha thanks for sharing your secrets! :) :)
I imagined it to be that size, or not much bigger.
If ever you want to come and balance some rocks in the Australian bush, you can come and visit me.
We have river rocks and very old granite boulders, some of which shed curved flakes.
You could do a balancing workshop for the locals.
That little tiny notch as tripod–nice to share your secrets.
When the stone fall down, I don’t blame you instead of a gravity wave from two black holes. ;) You have an extreme skill of the gravitic balance!
But… but… but like.. how!?
check out the demos: http://vimeo.com/gravityglue
Trust me I’ve watched them ;)
Looks like Blocj Island
shit dude. stop. you’re blowing my mind
Bonjour à tous!!!
Physics bro ;)
Michael, I want THIS one over my couch!!!! Remember please!
Reaching outstanding balance with rocks might enable the whole human specie to walk toward some mind and heart stability. Please keep inspiring us all.
Beautiful once again, are these the same 5 stones from the previous balance?
Great eye mate.. Bottom, 2nd from bottom, and 4th & 5th from bottom were used in previous post’s balance, however, this one was made first. :)) the rabbit hole goes deeper for an even keener eye ;)
Also the 4th is upside down, 5th flipped left to right, 1st and 2nd are both on completely different edges… But the rabbit hole I’m referring to also involves today’s :))
Ill check it out and see if i can spot it

I could stomp next to it and it wouldn’t fall. Earth is that solid. Slightest wind tho, and it’s gone :)
Sorry but my brain simply won’t allow me to believe it lol
