The Sky Is My Companion

"The beautiful Milky Way is just above me, while the backdrop city light reminds that I am not far away from the civilization."

The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders lying along a stretch of Koekohe Beach on the wave cut Otago coast of the South Island of New Zealand between Moeraki and Hampden. They occur scattered either as isolated or clusters of boulders within a stretch of beach where they have been protected in a scientific reserve.
