[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Located 1 hour's drive north of Greymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island and n the edge of the Paparoa National Park is the a small community of Punakaiki known for the world famous Pancake Rocks. The Pancake Rocks are a very popular tourist goal at Dolomite Point south of the main village.

The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts though a number of vertical blowholes during high tides.

Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments), these form the main attraction of the area

Hi Tsilla,
Interesting rock formations in the FG and a nice action in the BG. The agitated sea is contrasting marvelously with the rocks.
A very sharp image from an agreeable POV.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Very nice departure from all the winter scenes. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Good colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Tsilla
Very interesting "pancakes" ,great capture.
Nice natural colours,good sharp details.

Good one Tsilla , interesting formations here , i reckon that it would be nice to be there when the water rushes into holes in the limestone rocks to burst out like volcanos , i have a similar photo of the 'Pancakes ' the view is from the right with the coast as BG shot on a rainy day though , nevertheless a fine recording of an agreeable and spectacular seascape from you , thank you for sharing your view ,

Hello Tsilla,

A most interesting shot, with informative notes. The details of the patterns and formations of these ancient rocks, iswell captured. I would love to be there to see the blow holes at work.
My first thought was, that the composition would be better without the sky, giving a better thirds ratio, but, I have to admit that you were right, the inclusion of the sky gives greater depth and better all round balance.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
