The Balancing Rock, Long Island, Nova Scotia

If you have never been to see the Balancing Rock in person, I highly suggest you add it to your 2020 summer bucket list. To get to the Balancing rock you will hike a Well-groomed 2.5-km trail and descend down a 235-step staircase which leads to a platform with view of St. Mary’s Bay and the Balancing Rock.

The Balancing Rock is a narrow vertical column of basalt, balanced on its tip; the most-photographed of Long Island’s striking basalt formations.

Heidi Hirtle was born and raised in beautiful Rural Lunenburg County. From a very early age she developed a deep love of nature that evolved naturally into her life’s true passion of photography.

Over the years Heidi occasionally dabbled in drawing and painting but devoted the vast majority of her time to her camera. In 2015 Heidi was stricken with a rare neurological disorder (Paroxysmal Dystonia) that severely limited her ability to get out and about with her camera. As a form of meditation, to pass the time and continue her visual love of nature she again picked up her paints and pencils, and with a great deal of passion, surprisingly little practice (and even less training), she was able to create the artwork you see here. Heidi now happily resides in Bridgewater with her husband and stepdaughters, and spends her time painting.

This artwork is created by an indomitable spirit and a love of the world around us.
