White cliffs along the Coromandel coast near Whitianga are made of ignimbrite, a white, massive rock formed from pumice and ash that was erupted about 8 million years ago. Because it is quite soft, it soon erodes, forming steep headlands between small sandy beaches. Cathedral Cove is named after the large triangular cave in the centre.

The low point of view brings so much dynamics to this photo, the wave seems to swallow the photographer at any moment... Good shadow colours as sell, with good detail in the grey clouds.
