Granite Slabs


High on the Paparoa Ranges on the west coast of the South Island, amongst huge fields of granite boulders, I came across this assemblage of slabs that give the impression of a collapsed Stonehenge. Looking at this image I am reminded of a lyric in one of Bob Dylan's songs in which he talks of bricks 'all falling there so perfectly, it all seems so well-timed'. I was also entranced by the blue grey rock against the blue grey sky.
