Just spent a long weekend on New Zealand's west coast. For the most part, the weather was awful - pouring rain, howling winds, and cold. We did get a few hours where we could venture out and luckily this coincided with high tide which means the blow holes put on a display

These are not the greatest shots in the world, but some of you might enjoy them

Adam they look a bit flat & colourless, perhaps some definition & vibrancy

Thanks Went

I've already added as much as I could - the sky was pretty grey and the rocks weren't much better

Hey Adam,

What a cool area. I like the way the water blows through there.
