Tag Archive: balanced rock

Enough of politics, diseases and all that stuff. This is a photography blog. 😉
Do you remember my picture of Devil’s Table from August 2020?
I promised to show you the back side of it, so here we go (later as planned, I admit).
Which side do you like more?

January 6th was the birthday of one of my favourite philosophers: Alan Watts. Alas, I missed the opportunity to post something in his honour, so just a small quote today that came into my mind:

“The more we struggle for life (as pleasure), the more we are actually killing what we love.” 
– Alan Watts

And before I wish you all a nice week, here is an alternative shot to this beautiful rock:

I went a bit nearer for this and waited till the sun was lower.
Have a nice one!


Devil’s Table 2020

Devil's Table 2020

I love the rock formations in our forest.
This mushroom rock here is with its height of around 14 meters (46 ft.) one of the most famous in our region – the so-called Devil’s Table.

I went out during sunset to get some nice warm colors.
In the next few weeks I am going to post the other side of this nature’s marvel on this blog and in the meantime some alternative shots that I took with my Fisheye lense on flickr, so you should also check out my pictures there, if you are interested.

Highly recommended to view in higher resolution (click on picture).

The last picture about the motto “Balance” and yet another balanced rock.
I took this photo in 1997 in the Arches National Park (Utah, USA) with a Konika BM-201, an analog compact camera.
Usually, I try to show my latest pictures here, but I thought what better way to demonstrate that you don’t need an expensive camera for taking nice landscape pictures?
The 35mm film I used was a Kodak Kodacolor VR Plus 200. I prefer its organic, vivid and saturated colors over the somewhat neutral colors of today’s digital cameras.

The Devil’s Table

All around the world you can find those so-called “balanced rocks” of natural origin.
This one here is in Germany and called “Teufelstisch” – the literal translation would be the title I chose for the picture.
This natural monument is about 14 meters (about 46 ft) tall.
As some of you might have guessed, it is an HDR picture.

As always, click to enlarge.
