"Moeraki Boulders". Moeraki Beach, South Island, New Zealand. I'm willing to bet you haven't seen too many photographs like this one before! This image depicts a cool, rainy morning at Moeraki beach on the eastern shore of the South Island of New Zealand. These unique calcified boulders are spheres the size of automobiles. The subject of my photograph is a cracked boulder with the waves washing inside. A long exposure of about five seconds renders the motion of the water as abstract wispiness, which shows the direction it moves as it washes through the inside of the boulder. This is a distinctive moment in time, as a little while later the tide would be high enough to cover this boulder completely, and a busload of tourists would arrive and proceed to climb all over the boulders! It just goes to show you, photographing nature is all about timing.

A vertical 8"x10" print on a white 11"x14" mat. The back of the print is signed by me, Paul Nguyen, in black archival ink, and the mat is signed and captioned in black pencil with the title "Moeraki Boulders; New Zealand". The matted photograph is sized to fit a commercially available 11"x14" frame.

The photograph is professionally printed on Kodak Metallic (pearlescent) paper. It is archival grade, and designed to never fade. The printed photograph is made from the original high resolution digital image and does not contain the watermark that you see in the sample product image here.

The mat is hand-cut by me from high-quality mat board stock using a professional mat cutter.

I prefer to sell all of my photographs mounted on mats, because I believe the mat is part of the artwork. But if you would like to have just the print, you may specify that. It is also quite easy to remove the photograph from the mat yourself if you'd like, because it is held with just two pieces of tape which will leave the photograph unharmed when removed.

Other sizes are available, even if they aren't listed in the store. Feel free to ask! :)

The matted photograph is packaged in a protective clear plastic sleeve and foamcore backing board, and shipped in a corrugated cardboard box. Shipping to U.S.A. addresses is free! Shipping to Canada and other countries is extra.

The product images in my shop are for sample purposes only, and are low-resolution, watermarked approximations of what the actual printed photographs look like. Keep in mind that all computer monitors are different, and your monitor and viewing conditions may influence how an on-screen image appears to you. Any image you view on your screen may not look exactly like the printed version of the same image.

Thanks for looking at Paul Nguyen Photography!
