Fine attention. Often these are overlooked.

This small rock is a safety risk. Well seen and nicely captured Devi. :)

@Sam: You are right...God knows whether any one has gone up and stood near this !

Sam from Chennai, India

And thank you for your Shivarathri wishes Devi. I later decided to change the image today. It is a painting of Lord Shiva. :)

Balancing rocks like this are strange. I once saw one in England, but they are few and far between. I imagine people try to dislodge them

21 Feb 2020 6:42am

@lisl: I too saw a few of them that have been destroyed in England !

Nice find. I suppose one day it will finally dislodge and roll down the hill.
