This was another early morning shot of The Pancake Rocks on the West Coat of the South Island of New Zealand. Its is not a surprise that most of our images are from Dawn or Dusk – this is The Golden Hour where colors emerge and shadows appear!
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 this spectacular geological formation.
