The Pancake Rocks

By Guernseydan  
The Pancake Rocks on New Zealand's stunning West coast.

So called due to the ancient sedimentary layered rocks eroding at different rates and creating a stacked pancake effect!

This area is also famous for its blow holes from the pounding waves of the Tasman sea and I was fortunate enough to be in the area on a decent evening spring tide, giving me some nice low angled light coupled with the action of the sea spouting through the rock formations.

Thanks for looking.

Nice shot, Dan.

I think I'd have cropped away the sky to give more prominence to the FG rocks and splash. Just a thought.

Cheers

Because it is so dark at the bottom it blends into the black bacgrount. I think a thin white or light blue "edit->stroke" around the photo could work well here.
