Clouds, water and rock: New Zealand is a land (and sea) of beauty

The other day we were diligently working on processing a core when Reide said to me,”Hey J.P., grab the camera.”  Jokingly, I said to him “What? Do you want to take a picture of some clouds, water and rock?”  The funny thing is that most of our pictures are of just that: clouds, water and rock.  Why? because New Zealand is a beautiful country and because on the ocean, the conditions are always changing, constantly bringing new arrangements and colors of these three features.  Although a lot of the time, there isn’t much to see from a ship on the ocean.  Occasionally, we are lucky to see some incredible views.  Below are pictures of a few of the many great views we've had of clouds, water and rock… p.s.  Also, I should mention here that it's my sister, Corinne's birthday.  Happy Birthday!
