Diary of a Rock Balancer ::

Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 24 February 2016 — South Island, New Zealand ::

Rainy days in Fiordland are no joke… i played the rain for two days before getting flushed out and gear stopped working from too much moisture build-up in my van. any ‘waterproof’ clothes are not REALLY waterproof in this weather ha… but i survived. this was a nice spot for an hour. . just outside homer tunnel.

Thousands of tons of loose rock fields. Sizes of rocks ranged from tiny pebbles to boulders the size of large houses. wanna feel small? hike up to the waterfall on the north rim. . .

  1. The rocks, being “edgy”, could probably form all kinds of cool art. I love the color. Where is this, I’d like to look up the natural minerals there.

    1. This is at homer tunnel, on the way to Milford sound.. Where, as I understand, two plates are crashing together pushing up this mountain range.. Lots of jade in the area coming up from deep down.

    1. not a great photo but this is up close to the north rim waterfall coming down from the snowpack above it… can barely see this fall from the road.. but it was massive up close… took about 30-40 minutes to hike up to from the road through a fairly rough rock field … while from the road it only looks like a 10 minute hike.. i thought it was crazy how the perspective shifted the scale of everything.
