Punakaiki Pancake Rocks 5097

The name Punakaiki sounds a little like the English word pancake, so it’s something of a coincidence that the town of Punakaiki on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island is home to the Pancake Rocks. Here in this February 17th view you see one section of these intriguing formations played off the against the blue of the Tasman Sea. If you’d like, you can read more about the geological process that produced these curious structures.
