[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A natural hazard poised for a disaster. When the precariously balanced part at the top ultimately goes over the edge it will strike a national main road from which the photo was taken. The block is bigger than the average size of a room and collapse it surely will. The question is just when it will happen. Hopefully it will not strike any passing traffic.

Hi Neels,interesting post about this rock ready to go down,you be sure that i will not pass there..ehehe...a very curious and unique post made in the usual excellent quality,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Neels

Excellent photo of these rocks, you have choose a fine POV
to show it with appropriate framing, excellent contrast
between cold and warm color tones, TFS


I have seen rocks perched precariously atop others in India too, Neels. The one in your picture has an alarming over-hang. It's mystery of nature how such phenomena defy the natural laws. It might stay that way for millennia, you can never tell.
Anyway, it is a wonderful image taken from a perspective that makes one's fear of its tumbling down palpable.

Hello Neels! Fantastic rock. Superb place. Amazing scenery. Marvelous sky. Good colours. Good shot. Regards!

Hello Neels,
This is a very interesting and beautiful formations of rocks collected in one place.
As usual sharpness and details are outstanding.

Bonjour Neels,
Cela semble en effet un équilibre bien précaire... mais ce que je retiens surtout c'est une très belle lumière qui fait resplendir d'innombrables couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Neels,
What a neat and interesting shot of this well balanced boulder. I too hope when it ultimately succumbs to the elements and falls, there will be no traffic on the road.
Nicely composed image showing excellent detail and well saturated yet natural colors. The vertical framing works out well in this instance.
I must be spending way too much time with the grandkids, because the first thing I imagined was the squared off face of one of their transformer robots, complete with two dark eyes and a slightly broken roman nose:)

Naand Neels,
Fantasties om weer van jou te hoor!! The photo taken is spectacular and reminds of the area between the Strydom Tunnel and Mica where I have observed many such rocks balancing and many strewn over an great area in the vicinity.
Vriendelike groete,

The face looks almost human! It could be a cubist drawing. Excellent colors and sharpness, with the depth of field showing the surroundings very clearly as well.
