Rock balancing is a skilled art that involves balancing oddly shaped rocks on top of each other. While walking on the beach one day, I discovered a plethora of rocks being balanced and knew I had to capture it.

At the right angle, these rocks can look rather large but were no bigger than my hand.

As easy as it looks, rock balancing is very delicate and time consuming but the end result is beautiful.

Right after these photos were taken, the tide started to rise possibly taking out some of this beautiful rock art, but I’m glad I captured it.
