Thank you so much everyone who commented on Mandy’s photo yesterday. She now sees the positive role my PLN plays in my communicating with others through blogging and Twitter.

This photo is from Punakaiki, on the West Coast. Punakaiki is a rocky structure on the coastline eroded over the years with fissures that spout water plumes similar to geysers with the high tides and stormy swells. This photo catches the plume sinking back down the fissure! Punakaiki is a must visit stop on a South Island tour (@orunner please note!).

  1. This is STUNNING!!! An amazing shot, Allanah:-) The way the water is cascading and the linearity of the rock…fabulous.

  2. Stunning! was also my first word. Captures the essence of Punakaiki

  3. Please tell Mandy that she is making me want to visit New Zealand. Stunning scenery and beautiful photographs.

  4. Looks unreal……reminded me instantly of the tall structures in “Where the Wild things are” without the water! Each rock formation looks like it has been carefully hand stacked. Isn’t nature amazing……better still the power of the lense (and the eye off the photographer) to capture it’s essence forever.

  5. This is a truly amazing shot, it does look unreal!
