Full Moon Flow

It’s funny that just yesterday I thought I had made something really amazing in my own evolution of stone balancing. Trying something for my first time that was rumored to be quite a challenge. That was then. This photo is the product of going out the following day and building a NEW orb and hone the process. This time slowing down, carefully placing EVERY SINGLE STONE. This one turned out quite a bit bigger, rounder, more symmetrical, and all on a much smaller contact point. :)
All of the elements lined up perfectly once again to produce this picture… possibly my favorite to date, given those colorado sunset colors, shapes of stones, negative space, proportions, and the addition of a new element.. that **orb thingy. I was trying to decide what kind of shape to make and decided on the ball to contrast the angular shapes of stones.. I really like the contrast between the 3-dimensional space of the orb, and the relatively 2-dimenisonal rock silhouettes.
**To see some more funky shapes with stone, some can be found in the work of Andy Goldsworthy and other land artists… Someone did actually accuse me of copyright infringement for making a circular structure with stone.. but this particular person has zero understanding of copyright law… and therefore null.
