[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A massive overhanging piece of Jurassic sedimentary cliff on Elgol Beach. It is famous for the honeycomb effect on the lower strata where the rock has "weathered out".

One thing I loved about this location was the wide and varied geology of the place. The shapes, colours and textures of the rocks are wonderful.

Hello Stephen,
Wonderful and dramatic coastal scene you've captured here. I love the textured rock face and the light is beautiful. Great DOF and lovely colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Stephen! excellent rocky landscape , Good POV and details. Regards. Carme.

Hi Steve,
These rocks are exactly like the ones around the Truman Track just north of Punakaiki here on the West Coast.
I've had some photos of cliffs just like this sitting in my files for over a year, but I can see I'm going to have to dig them out now to show you.
Great shot,
Cheers, Steve

Hi Stephen,

A great shot. Lightning, BG, POV and colours almost perfect. I don't like that frame. It's to broad-brimmed. Regards and TFS Bob

Hello Stephen,
Wow! Your right the texture in this picture is very apealing and lighting well controlled. I really like the honeycomb cavities in the side of the cliff it is really interest to view. TFS. :)

Such a beautiful shot. I love everything about this shot. Cool colors with warm highlights. Composition and framing is wonderful. I love the textures of the rock up close and the dramatic clouds and Hills in the back. Very beautiful shot.


Hi Stephen

Wow... this rocks!! So I hear we may see you in New Zealand next year... that would be fantastic!
