Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Kiwi Summer

This image was also taken on New Year’s Day and typifies how many New Zealanders spend their summer holidays.  Takapuna Beach on Auckland’s North Shore is approximately 1 km long, very accessable, safe and popular with local families and visitors alike.  At the northern end there is a volcanic reef, camping ground and boat ramp.  At the southern end there are sandstone cliffs. The view from the beach looks out on Rangitoto Island as well as other numerous small islands dotted around the Hauraki Gulf.  All international and local shipping passes through the Rangitoto Channel.
