Hanging rock. Sierra de La Cabrera.

Hanging rock. Sierra de La Cabrera.
Seeing as we will be off-line tomorrow at some point, and for between 24 and 48 hours, I wonder if this large boulder will have tumbled inbetween times? :o)

Well ... rock. - Rock and roll, this rock about to roll off ... or maybe not. But the origin of true rock and roll with Little Richard, respect and R.I.P.
I think I have to wait another hour or so as I forgot I posted another to the group last night too!

It's amazing how that rock is still standing there - any more erosion and soon it'll topple over.

Thank you, Jenny.
Actually
It's a bit of a con. This is man made, the residue from a granite quarry from 200 or more years ago. This granite stone paved the streets of Madrid.

A great balancing rock and it's still there. Maybe because it seems ipernity wasn't long offline! :-) A great tribute to Little Richard too.

You really know how to find these rocks that are balanced and don't want to roll!
Lovely composition, Andy.

It's only because I systematically explored every corner of this Sierra between 2011 and 2015 that I found them! I used to come here twice a week for ten hour walks (I got fit and lost a lot of weight and also cured myself of diabetes 2, temporarily).

Probably since left there by quarriers, perhaps 2-300 years ago? ... Or much more.
