Te Hoho

By Guernseydan  
Cathedral Cove's famous sea stack, crowned with Pōhutukawa trees, stands strong despite the endless erosion of the Pacific Ocean.

Once a large sea cave like the present Cathedral Cove arch, Te Hoho collapsed into the sea many years ago and one day the same will become of current cave at this stunning location.

I had seen many photos of Cathedral Cove and Te Hoho and wanted to do something different. I opted for this composition to try and show its dominance of the coastline and the vertical perspective accentuated that accordingly.

The rocks in the foreground added that extra touch and balance to the composition, with the faint pre dawn glow beginning to reflect off their wet surfaces. The full size print also shows good detail in the cave arch of Cathedral cove and a faint glimmer of pre-dawn light shines through.

What a start to the day! I kept having to pinch myself to realise I wasn't dreaming and I really was there. At Cathedral Cove. With the whole place to myself!

Thanks for looking

Beautiful light shining on the fg boulders sets this image up really well Dan, very nice composition with the soft water movement.

All the very best
