giant marbles

its almost hard to believe that these rocks live on earth.   the whole scene feels other-worldly:

the rocks are moeraki boulders and strewn across koekohe beach on the south island of new zealand. they remind me a bit of the much smaller martian blueberries discovered by the robust little mars rovers

the photo was one of last year's winners of the national geographic traveler photo contest.  they are still accepting entries for this year...!

The rock formations reminded me of Sailing stones at the Racetrack Playa -
