[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Punakaiki - Pancake Rocks and Blowholes, both of which are spectacular and a must-see when visiting the West Coast, South Island, New Zealand.
The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts though a number of vertical blowholes during high tides. Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments), these form the main attraction of the area.
