The sound of the peaceful waves of Lake Michigan lapping the shoreline and the tranquil beauty of these stacked rocks has a calming effect.

Is it a hobby, a discipline or an art? No matter how you look at it, when you look at it, rock balancing has a soothing effect. Is it the illusion that gravity has been defeated? Is it the juxtaposition of these solid, earth forms stacked into the air?  Is there a Zen energy at work or is it the pastoral forces of Nature? Gather a mug of tea, turn off your brain and enjoy this sedate scene captured by Jason Asselin at Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan.
