Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

I took this picture in Punakaiki/New Zealand early in the morning when I just got up. Punakaiki is best known for ist Pancake Rocks and blowholes. Where the Name does come from? Because These coastal rocks look ike enormous stacks of pancakes. They were formed 30 million years ago from fragments of skeletons and Shells. Over the millenia they have been sculpted by mildly acidic rain, wind and sea water. It’s a great viewing spot over the west coast of the southland and if you’re lucky (just like me that morning) you can even see the top of the mountains of the Southern Alps. I was completely alone this morning .. just me and the sound of the waves. A great ‘beginning’ of a new day.
