[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The geological variety along the West coast of the South Island of New Zealand is truly staggering. The cliffs along this stretch of coastline are conglomerates of many types of rock set in sandstone. Quartz, jasper and coal are exposed on the surface and are washed down creeks from the mountains to sit as boulders on the beach.
The tidal pools here are full of huge reef stars, sea anemone, mussels, chitons, barnacles and crabs.
On all our visits to this beach, we have only ever seen one other person :)
I hope you like the image.
