Moeraki Trip

We had a long weekend here last weekend and I took the opportunity to take a trip to Moeraki, a few hours south of Christchurch. Moeraki is famous for the natural round boulders on the beach but also has an excellent restaurant in Fleur’s Place and also a reserve protecting a colony of Yellow Eyed Penguins. While the weather when I arrived was far from ideal – raining, which seemed normal since I had chosen to camp for the night – it improved and I managed to get some images in the evening when I arrived and also managed an early start from sunrise at the boulders themselves.

I liked the shadow as a spoke in the rainbow.

I am enjoying long exposures just now.

I still have a number of images to process, just not enough time right now!
