The Moody Moerakis

Posted by
~~~Ann~~~ (Nelson, New Zealand) on 24 June 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

This is a colour version of an image I posted earlier of the Moeraki Boulders on Koekohe Beach just before a big storm. The Moerakis were exposed by the erosive impact of wave action and their composition is virtually identical to septarian concretions that have been found in sedimentary rocks elsewhere in New Zealand, in the Kimmeridge and Oxford Clays of England, and at many other locations worldwide.

The boulders are riddled with large cracks called septaria, but the processes that created the septaria remain a mystery.

I like the contrast in this version but still prefer the mono take on the Moerakis. For me mono just fits the mood a little better.

I liked the monochrome version but I prefer it which has more contrasts according to my idea
