Maori legend says these mysterious boulders are “eel baskets” that were scattered after the sinking of a legendary canoe.
Science says they’re 50-60 million year old concretions, formed by hardened sea sediment.
I say, these were impossible to find the night before I took this shot, as we searched the Koekohe Beach on New Zealand’s east coast in darkness to try to capture the boulders against the milky way.
It turns out they’re not actually that illusive – they just disappear at every high tide. (Note to self : check that sort of thing before venturing out in the middle of the night!)
But what a difference a day made. Our plan to capture the cloud’s pink reflections of the sunset behind came good, and the wash of the sea meant I got the shots I was looking for. I captured about 20 frames, but this one just stood out – texture, texture, rich colours, the motion of the sea, and even more texture. I just love it!
