This is very impressive, Aussie! I almost feel like the rock nearest to us is about to roll through the picture.

Absolutely wonderful!
The boulders there are cool.
Nice record of the trip.
cheers

Impressive view, imagine the force of the water millions of years ago to make those rocks like 'balls' and put them on the beach for you to capture.
WOW Vintage must be very special ( grin I know he is....just kidding and I know his kind of dislike for B&W) however this one is great, I can kind of imagine the B&W.

l remember seeing these things when l was in NZ, amazing, and since when do you listen to vintage
In spite of the obvious size of those boulders, this picture has a light quality about it.
I would think that B&W would destroy that lightness. So I look forward to seeing the B&W version later.
They look amazing in colour Aussie. I will look forward to the b&w version. Vintage has done 2 b&w pictures in his first 400....I make that 0.5% of his output!!!

Love it Aussie it's rather interesting that they appears rounded at all angles.Its funny how most thing I see are in colour.I am old enough to remember the breaking news of colour Tv lol
Absolutly wonderful Aussie. Almost surreal!
I saw big round boulders in another part of AU but can't remember where. It was explained that they rolled and rolled many miles of glaciers or from volcanoes (I can't remember which) to get so round.

simply amazing! i really like how you captured and composed this. these aren't rocks, everyone. dinosaurs still live.
Wow! These are amazing - and so strange to be on a beach. Nice find!
Amazing. Never seen anything like this before.
Everybody says amazing Aussie because they are, I've never seen anything like this before. Very nicely portrayed.

These are amazing! Its a wonder how perfectly rounded they are... and all natural.

Can't wait for the B&W smile I bet it'll add more atmosphere to the image

Marbles of the big people. The composition is great.
They're like giant ossified pre historic eggs.
Your friend Vinatge is correct! I think in B&W you would lose the subtle colour variations sucha s the algae on the bolders. I'd love to know what caused the ball-like shapes.
