Mayan Blood at Dusk by Ken Wright

Found these warn limestone blocks in the North Bay at Kaikoura on New Zealand’s South Island, carved smooth by the sea in a very blocky pattern, very different to the other rocks I found which tended to be sharp like sharks teeth.

I was facinated by these rocks, made several visits to them at different times of the day, they looked like the remains of a Lost Civilization.

Shot on a Nikon D700 with 17-35mm lens, with Cokin ND4 grad filter.

Mayan Blocks at Dusk

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i live in sunny Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.
