Slanting balance

Slanting balance, originally uploaded by escher1.

I wanted to start building balances that have a more aesthetic look more like Andy Goldsworthy's creations. After I had finished the tree in a frame I had a little time to give it a go. There are nice flat blocks at Heysham and nice round gritstone pebbles too. This one went up reasonably easily with onluy a couple of disconcerting wobbles. The green white brown contrast behind was not planned but works well in the picture. I need to pay more attention to where things go to get the best picture. I did build it higher later on but I don't think it looked as good.
