    Congratulations, Mepo. Those are fantastic sculptures and I love the way the light was falling on them.

    Super on theme. Interesting subject and location. You chose a nice time of day to shoot.

    I'm glad so many members liked this. I will try and pass your comments on to the artist who is responsible for these amazing sculptures. I will include a shot of him working on the display in the outtakes. And another showing the complete collection.

If you look carefully you will see he uses very small pieces of rock to support the various stones. I've tried this and it is difficult to do. It's even more difficult to get the rocks to balance in an artistic form.

Unfortunately they will all be disassembled in a few weeks time before winter sets in. Next year he will start from scratch once again.

    Great sculpture. I could look at this for a long time ...well, I am. So many possible interpretations. Well found and photographed. High in my tt.

    Just love this shot with the reflections. Some of those balancing acts look impossible! Superglue?

    Clever (your shot and the art) well taken, looks like side light on the stones which makes them separated from the beach and sea, very nice

    Well composed stone arrangement with a pleasing background environment.

    Nice! There is piled rock garden (well, it's really a large empty lot which somebody decided to decorate with piled rocks) which I had every intention of going to photograph for this challenge, but ran out of time. Nicely composed.

    Good find. I recall Lo submitting one or two such sculptures in previous challenges. Very cool! In my favs.
