Initial variation with this top rock. Actually a completely different arrangement really.. but i really like that top rock…
Date of this photo/variation was yesterday (05 Nov 2015) at magic hour.. My favorite part about this spot is the way the water flows through these rocks in a metallic way, holding its reflective surface tension as it stretches through the funnel .. great example of the emptiness/transience of wave PATTERNS. plants, animals (humans), everything i’m aware of. .
Second Variation (made today)
This one is slightly up the creek from the previous variation seen above.
The diagonal reflection of the tree in the left of the balance is the same in both instances. so they are quite close, despite
“Those rocks are just as much you as your fingernails. you need rocks. what are you going to stand on?”
the magic world of rocks and stones /and this is magical x
Great……….. my compliments…..
I have been talking about balancing rocks for awhile and this popped up on my news feed ! I love seeing powerful things for the first time ! These pictures hold a lot of energy and balance , just looking at them helps me understand
I like all of these, as much for the excellent photography as for the skill in balancing. It’s just good food for the soul.
bello, elegante, difficile… BRAVO, sempre un pochino di più… voli davvero alto!
These rocks were made for each other! Nice touch with the yellow leaf!
Like your post today..as always!

His work is amazing!!
Until it rains
actually rain usually does not make them collapse.. only wind. and maybe snow if there is enough extreme counterbalancing.. but usually snow doesn’t do it either without wind.
Heavy rain too?
i’ve seen em survive torrential downpours. heavier rock on top helps. same with high tension through the whole structure..
Would snow offset the balance if it builds up on top?
