Sunset brings a close to another day at Gillespies Beach on the South Island of New Zealand as people have used the perfectly shaped rocks for building cairns.

Sunset along Gillespies Beach near Fox Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand is a beautiful time of day and this is where people come to find the perfect shaped rocks to build cairns. Cairns are not as simple as they look to build and every rock that is placed upon the other needs to be the ideal shape.The flatter the rocks are, then the bigger your cairns will be as each rock sits perfectly upon the other. Each rock that is collected for the cairns plays an important role once it is put in place and one wrong move could be the destruction of the whole rock creation.

Along Gillespies Beach in New Zealand, you will find many flat shaped rocks and you could sit for hours along this beach creating your masterpiece. In earlier years, cairns had special meanings attached which aided people when searching for the right direction to choose.

Nowadays, people make cairns on the beach as a way to spend some relaxing hours and enjoy the atmosphere around the New Zealand waters. ... continue below the picture...
