Moeraki Boulders by damienlee
Clear

I recently shot these awesome boulders on a trip to New Zealand. Jay and I drove for close to 7 hours to find these, but they were well worth while.

There are over 50 boulders on the beach. The biggest weigh 7 tons and are 2-3 metres wide. Maori call them “eel pots”. Some locals call them “hooligans gallstones”. Other names that have been bestowed upon the boulders include “giant gobstoppers”, “alien’s brains”, “the bowling balls of giants” and the “Stonehenge of New Zealand”!

    It’s a fantastic location, and an awesome place isn’t it. A great treatment of this miraculous site.

  • It certainly is!!!!! Next time I go back I think I will stay in Moeraki and try some different shots of them. We literally drove for ever to shot them so I am happy to come away with something.
