This precariously balanced boulder is called Krishna's butterball, and contently sits on this relatively steep hill.
Taken early in the morning, before the hordes of Indian tourists descended in.

Good job getting there ahead of the crowds and in the right light. This is a wonderfully geometric and simple subject and the plain blue sky works for me in this context. The red rock really pops against the blue. As I look at this I wonder if it might have been possible to move to the left and use the pathway as a lead-in line and to isolate the boulder against the sky excluding the trees on the left. Well done and TFS!

A well balanced colourfull image, David.
The vertical framing, using the colourfull nature and "Krishna's butterball" is a fantastic image concept.
Love to see more of this place.
Have a great day.

The good ol' Butterball. First a stone, than a turkey, now a wrestler...but things like this always go in circles. So today the stone is back...
Great shot David. It's almost a "rule of thirds" photo in that the sky, stone and grass provide the thirds. The Butterball is a great focal point and with the thirds really creates a dynamic photo. Good color and composition.

A great shot, and the vertical format has worked well here for your composition. The goats give a good sense of scale to depict just how huge the rock is. A simple yet very effective image.
