The Friday Photo #154 – Reflecting rock, Wharariki Beach

Wharariki beach

Wharariki beach is about as far north as you can go on the South Island of New Zealand before you entirely run out of land.  Waves that grow in power all the way from Antarctica crash into the craggy limestone cliffs, continuing the erosion that has been going on for millennia.

Its energy spent, the water flows silently up the gently sloping beach before soaking back into the wet sand.  Rocks and sand dunes reflect in the mirrored surface as another wave rolls in, spray flying into the air in a never-ending cycle.

It’s a rugged, truly beautiful part of the country.
