This is at an old tin mine along the far southwest coast of Cornwall. Beautiful coastline! The rocks of this particular cove drew me here to begin with. predominantly light toned granite eggs, and darker, smoother, heavier, basalt rocks. Traveling and balancing really changes the game a bit. no more comfort zone. the only option is to flow with the constant change. to adapt to new experience in real time. This creation resulted from my interest in this teardrop nook. Dangerous place to play. Exceptional place to display the native white granite boulders.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Sometimes I am awed by the pure genius and timing of certain creations in relation to the shifts in light at each moment… This video is a case in point. Insta photo doesn't do justice to the colors. But holy shit was it beautiful out. Video to be released with 'gravity glue 2015' in January. #stacklife #zaf #doforlove #thereisnotry

You have no idea the strenght you’re giving. Thankx.
I’ve been proud of you for 20 years, Elissa. You are pure joy in my life and I miss our worldly discussions over tini’s. Joy and happiness, my beautiful friend.
Very nice, thank you

Looks like fingers coming out of the bottom of the big rock. What are all those little ones that look like gold rocks in the front?

The one below of the “2 left standing” looks like a romantic “rock couple” enjoying the sunset.
Alicia Watt how bout them stones?
I love sunsets and rocks. So this totally speaks to me.
Tom Baker my quote of the day to you
One of your simplest, yet finest achievements, good sir!!!
Why do you always wet the rocks down, do they have to be like that?
Excelent ca s affine!
Can you please confirm that this is Cornwall? I know it has amazing lighting. I’ve always wanted to visit!
Confirmed. But Cornwall is a big place.
Right, but you already told me you accessed the one beach from St. Just.
So u already know it’s Cornwall :)
I think it’s so amazing that it’s pretty much straight across …. in latitude …. from Novia Scotia, but has palm trees! No temps much below 40 degrees …. year round. An amazing place that I need to see. Definitely on the bucket list!
I was fairly certain, but I know you travel the world …. and St. Just seems a fairly common sounding name. I thank you for the confirmation.
Love it…and the wave crashing behind it
Gonoring, te desafio! :D
Agora ficou difícil rs
Looks like toes
10-4 big chicken !!
gonna hafta take that advice today!!
Eu nunca acredito!! E AMO por isto.
The contrasts in color you’ve demonstrated lately are phenomenal. Thank you
Gravity glue ca porte bien son nom….comment ils tiennent les cailloux…?
Aint that just S o m e t h i n g A w s o m e ~~~~~~~~~~~
Duh. Great message
do you use fine sand between stones??
Oh, each time I think this is the maximum you can reach… but not ! ;-)
So visually appealing! Nice work!
You think this is easy, try it
This one is wonderful!
Great quote by Ralph Waldo… Thought you’d like it Rita
crazy beautiful :)
Just finding the perfect stones must have been an adventure.
that’s what took the longest… tip: they always turn up when i’m not searching for them.
Great work..as always…
a really well-balanced beauty!!!
Une composition parfaite !! le mix granit /basalt est sublime !
You are firing on all cylinders. <3
I see what you did there…..
Ol’ Ralphie pretty much nailed it.
Sean Yessmann Tyler Hawes so cool!
this is the sunset that followed… <3
Oh stop! How much better can this get ?! <3
our beautiful earth <3
post wind. post sunset (kinda).. only 2 left standing :)
They look like a cute little couple watching the sunset :)

They’re in love – telling each other secrets only they know :)
2 lovers !
That couple shot would make a fantastic wallpaper! May I ask for one for private use? 2560×1440
Katie Yazir Where is it? Really beautiful.
the children have left the nest, leaving the old couple gazing at the sunset together
You really should visit Bruce Peninsula National Park in Ontario Canada. There is a trail there (Horse Lake trail) that ends at a huge boulder beach with spectacular views that is just crying out for a visit from you. :) http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/on/bruce/activ/activ1.aspx

Janelle High check this out!!
This is very hard!!!!!! Congratulations
Not sure how your sculptures are ending up in my newsfeed, but I love it.
You just got lucky Amy. These are a gift any way you look at it.
you are having more and more fun. How wonderfully creative
Holy shit that’s amazing!
the light at sunset seemed to turn on just for this moment
that splash in the back tho!! :))
Love that splash! Yes!
The strength of the waves and the fragility of the sculpture- wonderful! I’m almost scared that the waves might crash into the masterpiece but at the same time I know they are too far.
they did eventually.. high tide was on its way
I would love to talk to you properly. I am baffled by the sculptures and the sheer patience it must take to create them.
Love the reflectiveness of the top stones, fantastic work once again.
You sir just created stone balancing yin yang!!! This is just mesmerizing
That is a stunning work!
beautiful symbology of the balance of feminine and masculine energies held in perfect balance. you are helping the world with every balance sculpture you make, emanating that balance and concentration all around the world. thank you for doing great work friend <3
