Seashore Landart

There is a tradition for hikers to mark paths with pile of stones...while i was roller-blading last night (Yes i have said night). Next to the northern coast of Reykjavík, next to Sæbraut (the sea avenue), there is a walking/biking/roller-blading path. There was a man piling stones. That is pretty amazing. The guy doing it (second picture) have a great sense of balance.....Look at the different stones. I am still wondering how he is doing it.

Glad you enjoyed them :) I find it therapeutic to build them.

They're actually a lot easier to build than they look. Especially with bigger rocks, it's easier to feel when they're close to balancing.

You start with just two rocks, and try and make the most improbable links you can :)

I think that I’d be lucky to get two!
