    Spontaneous Art

    Some of you will know that we live within walking distance of Lake Ontario. We have tried to get out and walk some - not enough but better than nothing. This summer there was a display of hundreds of painted rocks. This week we walked down and there was an amazing display of rock sculptures - rocks carefully balanced on each other. The work is amazing and frankly as amazing is that no one has felt the need to destroy them.

    The first picture is not mine but the worse quality pictures are (of course) mine.

    Sir Isaac would be scratching his head to see those rocks defy "horizontal" gravity
    Really, pretty cool pieces of art. It's nice that no-one has disturbed them.

    Pretty cool! Hope it doesn't get too windy! I took the liberty of tweaking that first picture a little. (Straightened horizon and adj exposure and a little contrast.)

    Thanks Boss for tweaking the pic and, Doc, Druids - yup. Speaking of which.
