Nicely done!  I think Andy Goldsworthy would approve!

In this case, I think Ma Nature beat Andy to the punch.

Gorgeous composition Nat.  I love the tension and balance of the shapes.  My only possible nit with what I'm seeing on the web is that I would love just a bit more shadow values in the rocks in the lower part of the image.  

It's probably a lot easier to tell in a larger image, but I'm having a hard time nailing down the scale of this.  How big are these?  Bowling ball size?

Thanks for sharing this, Nat.  Is there a coffee table book in the works?

I can't answer for Nat, but the only Moki stones I've seen would fit easily in the palm of your hand...

Mike.

P.S.  And yes, I think Mother Nature provides guidance for Andy Goldsworthy's work!
