Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Cliffs and Clouds

Cliffs at Takapuna Beach

The cliffs at the eastern end of Takapuna Beach are sandstone and soft. It is not unusual to find that another piece has crumbled away after a severe north-easterly storm when the wind and waves are at their greatest. In the morning sunlight they area are a lovely golden brown and the layers of sandstone sediment can be clearly seen.  Pohutukawa trees (New Zealand’s so-called “Christmas Tree”) cling tenaciously to the clifftop, doing their best to hold the cliffs together.

Yesterday , while on the photowalk with my grandson, this view caught my attention.  It had rained the previous night and white fluffy clouds hung in the sky for most of the day.
