Photo: Sunset Rock Memorial NZ

A rock memorial stands in the glowing rays of the disappearing sunset on Gillespies Beach near Fox Glacier in New Zealand.

The Gillespies Beach is a wild stretch of coastline near Fox Glacier on the South Island of NZ and is the ideal place to build a rock memorial. The remaining rays of the sun at sunset glisten off the rock memorial that was hand crafted on Gillespies Beach in NZ.

A rock memorial is built for many different purposes and if you categorize all of them into one group they are actually called cairns. Each cairn is a pile of stones erected by humans and they add a touch of class to the beach of NZ at sunset. These rocks are a symbol of a burial site or a rock memorial, can mark the summit of a mountain, mark a path across barren terrain or glaciers or are sea markers to help mariners locate themselves.

Sunset is a beautiful time to stroll this beach in NZ and watch the sky change into an array of colors or sit and create your own rock memorial. The rocks along this beach are the ideal shape and size for building a rock memorial or cairn. ... continue below the picture...
