in my front yard...

A rock balance in my front yard. The people that lived here before us were stone masons and they left these rock pillars. Very convenient since they are the perfect base for balancing rocks.

Desert Rocks

A few rock balances from Death Valley. It was very windy so I could not balance as much as I wanted to...

Rock and wood balance!

Clark, Colorado

These rocks were balanced in Clark, Colorado. 20 miles out of the ski resort of Steamboat Springs. In the early morning I walked down to the Elk River and had to actually kick the rocks out of the ground since they were frozen in.

Mesa Lane, Santa Barbara, CA

This was a semi unsatisfactory balance. The shot above was actually only an exposure check. I balanced the rocks so I could take a picture after sundown. As soon as they were standing I waited and two ladies came by. They were amazed by the balance and wanted to take a picture of me next to it. I got out the camera and snapped the above image to check the settings on the camera, gave it to them and stood next to the rocks. Just before she took the picture the balance collapsed. I had plenty of time before sundown to build them back up but an hour later they still weren't back up. The tide was coming in, waves clashing all over me, soaking me and throwing my balance off. The sand under my feet was washed away by the waves and I was sinking while trying to balance. It was a little frustrating and the rocks did not want to go back up. I ended up not being able to build the balance again, since it was getting dark and the tide was too high...

Griffith Park, Los Angeles, CA

This balance took me quite a while. The long rock right on the base rock is balanced by the upper rocks. The single rock has just over 50% weight and the two smaller ones are just short of 50% in weight. Sorry for the poor images, I just had my little point and shoot with me.
