I normally tell people who are interested in recording “gravity glue” that there is a certain lack of expectation that must be applied. As with balancing rocks, the more I expect. the more frustrated or disappointed I become…Even for beginner’s it is a valuable point to abandon any expectations and just FLOW with the moment…
Balancing year round in most weather has brought a heightened appreciation for observing the interaction between the rock arrangements and moments of weather……. simple temperature changes can turn familiar creations into ice-rock-snow hybrids of natural flux and creative touch. Although I pay closer attention to weather reports and do certain things at certain times and locations, bottom line is the weather is reasonably unpredictable… As I walked up to this bridge this morning, I was suspended in curiosity as to whether it withstood all the snow.. deep breath upon realizing it was still standing..
Although the weather said freezing temperatures, this morning was different somehow from the last freeze… warmer water? snow insulation? Normally where solid ice formed at the surface of the creek, a slushy layer of snow/ice formed instead.. soft enough to run a finger through it… Anyway, there was some ice formation but I wonder if the heavy snow had anything to do with slush instead of ice..
one unique result from the present conditions was the series of slush/ice droplets hanging under the arch.. So quiet when the everything is blanketed in snow.. :)
