The famous Punakaiki [Pancake Rocks] along the Tasman Coast of the South Island of New Zealand are limestone formations that began forming 30 million years ago. Lime-rich fragments of dead marine creatures were deposited on the seabed, then overlaid by weaker layers of soft mud and clay. Eventually the seabed was raised above sea level by earthquakes to form the coastal cliffs and coastline. The sea, wind and rain have since etched out the soft layers to form the unusual rock formations we see today. they are found in the Paparoa National Park established in 1987. 1/125 @ f11 ISO100 fuji S5Pro with Nikon 17-55 @18mm 151 lviews

Played with photography since early High School. Since moving to the Yukon in 1997 I have become much more involved and am now comfortable in Photoshop although there is always more to learn. The Yukon is a great canvas and would recommend it for most everyone’s Bucket List
