Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Coastal Walkway – New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand

I visit New Plymouth at least four times a year but last week was the first time I have managed to get in an early morning walk instead of having to rush to the airport to catch the plane back to Auckland.  New Plymouth is the home of New Zealand’s oil industry which has brought prosperity to the region over the past 30 years. One of the beneficiaries of this wealth has been the creation of a coastal walkway from the city centre around the cliffs to the north.  Throughout the day people walk, jog, ride their bikes and exercise their dogs along the concrete concourse.  Occasionally viewing platforms are provided like the one featured here.
