The Garden of Gods Balancing Rock

Sunrise from Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO. The rock formation seen in the foreground is the famous Balancing Rock. This rock is well known for it's ability to defy gravity, hence the name. I have another photo of a different rock that's more mind boggling which I'll post later.
