[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Once again I find myself with a shot that doesn't fit into any category available. There should be categories for 'Coast','Caves' and 'Lakes' none of which are catered for in the drop down options ...not for the lack of requests.
...never mind.
Anyway ...
These are the weathered sandstone rocks on the beach at the end of the Truman Track at Punakaiki.
Much of the coastline along here is made up of limestone and sandstone of various types,although there are also areas of hard granites with seams of quartz.
This stretch of coastline has such a diversity of geological strata that virtually no two bays or coves are the same. One beach might have almost black rocks whereas one a few hundred metres along will have almost white ones.
This certainly is a fascinating region and a veritable geologists paradise.

Hope you like the photo.
Cheers,Steve

Hi Steve,
You did it great with this no-category-found picture! ;-)
I found very appealing that rock forms, and as you mention that must be a fascinating region.
You made a well balanced composition with the small water fall at the center of interest.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Kind regards,
JM

Hi Steve,
whole heartedly agree, we NEED a Coast catergory!! Very interesting post though, the way the rocks seem to be emerging from the sand is great and the little water fall at the back adds a nice touch touch of movement. Good exposure too.

Namastay Steve,
The biggest rock looks like a fossilized bone of some gigantic creature from the past. The two small stones in the front looks as a mother dolphin and a baby dolphin showing their head above the water. The thin line of waterfall makes the BG very nice. Overall it is a firstclass capture. Many thoughts are hidden here. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Sincerely
Hara

Hi Steve,

A great capture of this "Holy Rocks" I like your well balanced composition with the small water fall at the center of interest. Thats make this photo very attractive. Also the grey little stones in FG, the flowers and gras make this composition complete.I think that the hole coastline from NZ has such a diversity of geological strata that virtually no two bays or coves are the same. Regards and TFS Bob
