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. :)
