Meadow Run, Ohiopyle State Park, July 13, 2015

With plentiful rain most of the last month, it’s been hard to get much stone balancing done. Not because I don’t enjoy sitting out in the rain. Creek waters have been muddy and high up on the stream banks, touching the forest, leaving few rocks to select from. Actually I enjoy working in the rain. It’s rather tranquil and doesn’t change the properties of balancing stones. It does however prevent me from the nerve wracking task of wetting down the stone balances to help bring the true stone colors out for photos. I spent a mostly dreary day along Meadow Run in Ohiopyle State Park. The water was running at about twice “normal” volume, severely limiting my choices for stones. I discovered a small eddy that had a small beach of stones from which to select.  I wrangled up a few nice selections and set off to balancing. Throughout the day there was a period of heavy downpour which created a wonderful, muted background resulting in some nice photos of what I had built. I hope you enjoy 🙂
