Blow holes at pancake rocks, New Zealand This is a recording from New Zealand on the south Island at a place called Punakaiki. These amazing underground caves and blow holes spew out these phenomenal sub-sonic booms as the ocean waves travel with incredible force through the caverns and holes. Birds heard in the background are White-fronted tern. This from Wikipedia: The Pancake Rocks are a very popular tourist goal at Dolomite Point south of the main village. The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts though a number of vertical blowholes during high tides. Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments),[1] these form the main attraction of the area. This is a great recording if you have a woofer in your arsenal! Recording info: Recorder: SD 722 Microphones: Sennheiser MKH-40/30 MS pattern Gitzo traveller Tripod mounted with Rycote windjammers.
