Boulder Bay in Christchurch is a real hidden gem. Similar to Taylors Mistake, this small bay, or beach if you will, is resident to multiple baches. These kooky little houses seem to all be in good order though compared to Taylors, and just blend so well into the beach completely covered in rocks.
Boulder Bay during the Autumn and Winter months is blessed with beautiful golden lit sunsets that hug the horizon to the very last second. When you walk the Godley Head track too, Boulder Bay is a perfect way to end it and after the sunsets, it’s just a little walk up the hill back to the carpark. I’m always alone it seems when i visit, which adds a real feeling of remoteness.
Similar to Taylors Mistake, I’ve started to document the forms, buildings and vibe of this wee bay. What I’d love to do over the warmer months when residents are more inclined to be staying in the baches is try and capture their portraits too, and add to this series.
