Road Trip to the Moeraki Boulders

This was a very fun trip! I’ve decided to include three photos today instead of just one!

Road Trip to the Moeraki Boulders We stayed overnight in a little town called Moeraki, which is not surprisingly right by the Moeraki Boulders. There is a bay here with these rails that go into the water to launch boats.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Lupins in New Zealand Along the way to Moeraki, these Lupins are growing and blooming everywhere! It’s spring down here in NZ, and I think these flowers are great. I’ve met a few locals though that turn up their nose and call them annoying weeds!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Daily Photo – Moeraki Boulders at Sunrise

A group of people from NZIPP went out for an overnight road trip to this amazing place on the east coast. I’ve always wanted to shoot them at sunrise, but it kind of requires you to sleep pretty close by. I live in Queenstown, which is about 3-4 hours away, and that would mean a 2 AM wake-up time in the summer!

One of the tricky things about these boulders is ensuring you arrive at low-tide. At high-tide, they are almost totally inaccessible… so timing a sunrise with a low-tide takes a bit of planning. Thanks to Jason Law and NZIPP for the nice invite!
