The Perfect Balance

This Week’s Photo – The Perfect Balance

The “Balanced Rock” at Garden of the Gods is a wildly popular location to photograph. Whether a seasoned pro or a 12 year old kid with a cell phone, this location has been photographed thousands and thousands of times. So here was the challenge – how to compose this scene with a fresh composition. After walking around the rock for a while I noticed there were some rock formations that would give the balanced rock a natural frame at a particular angle.

I had to splay my tripods legs out as far as they could allowing my camera to get as low to the ground as possible  to get this vantage point.
