Festival of the Equinox

Evans Crown Reserve, near Tarana in the Greater Blue Mountains region.

Working on the theme of the Equinox and thinking of balance, mineral, vegetable and spiritual -- Zen balance rocks immediately sprung to mind.  Now I don't have the patience to balance my own rocks so I checked through my archives to find some that nature had done for me.

  1. Ah, that is almost like an ancient cairn. Enjoy the coming spring weather an Enjoy the d the vernal equinox!

  2. Now you know from our past history how much I love rocks and all that travel on them! I am continually amazed at some of the balancing acts within nature, where forces are so much more than mere man can deploy. It is hard to envisage that this formation is the result of weathering, just as it is hard to fathom the sheer brute force involved if the rocks were deposited one upon the other by winds. Although I have seen what cyclones can do - but not recently in the Blue Mountains.

    Thank you for your contribution to the Festival of the Equinox. I hope you look forward to a 'real' autumn as much as I do.

  3. Nature can be so obliging at times Joan :) I remember seeing balancing rocks like this when I lived in Africa, such a mystery as to how they came to be.

  4. Love this entry, Joan. Very clever!

  5. Stones like this are always a source of tranquility and comfort for me; I can really appreciate the beauty and balance of this place.
