Photographer's Note

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.
