This is one place where the 'skyscape' might possibly be overshadowed by the landscape. We were informed about the spectacular Moeraki boulders by a friendly, chatty local who said we might want to stop at the beach to see some rocks. We asked her why, and she said, "Oh, it is just a place where tourists like to stop and see those rocks there, take some photos..." she shrugged. What an understated introduction to the famous Moeraki Boulders, a site which is one of the most visited and photographed site in all of New Zealand! We later learned that these 'rocks' are rare natural wonders formed from ancient mud balls.
Are these rocks stealing the thunder from the serenity of the skies above them? Or are the skies providing the best backdrop ever to these unique natural formations? You be the judge of that.
|What a beautiful sky...perfect for a blissful day to spend at the beach.|
|Lone Ancient Rock, looking up at the sky, wishing he could be a cloud, wispy and light, free to roam the New World.|
|The contrast between the texture of the rock in the foreground and the sky in the background is phenomenal.|
|If you were an artist, which would give you more pleasure to paint? Boulders or that sky above?|
More clouds to watch at Skywatch Friday.
