Motukiekie Galaxies
Photo By Joshua Cripps

  • Title: Motukiekie Galaxies
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: New Zealand
  • Nearest Area: Motukiekie Beach
  • Nearest Town: Greymouth
  • Brief Directions: From Greymouth drive about 20 km north along the coast and look out for the seastacks to the west.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: With its shrub-capped seastacks, endless tidal pools, and unusual animals, Motukiekie Beach in New Zealand is an otherworldly landscape. In April 2012 I visited the beach at sunrise to find hundreds of 12-legged seastars clustered together in "starfish galaxies." I used a minute-long exposure to transform the incoming waves into mist to underscore the surreal and alien feel of the place.
  • Gear: Nikon D7000, Tokina 12-24mm, Lee GND filters, Induro Tripod, Acratech Ballhead
