Defying gravity

Don't you just love how the laws of physics work?  You stick a huge, heavy rock on the side of a hill (at a steep decline), and it just sits there.  Isn't it supposed to slide downhill?  I guess that's why I had so much trouble with physics in high school .  Well that, and I hated it.  But I digress. 

Anyways, I shot this at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in the Texas hill country.  Enchanted Rock is an enormous pink granite rock that rises 425 feet from the surrounding terrain.  I was hiking up the side of Enchanted Rock - and being a dome, yes you can hike up it - and when I saw this it was something I knew I wanted to shoot.  And if you look at the horizon you can see that this really is on the side of a hill.  I'm not trying to fake you out or anything.  :)
