Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Goat Island Marine Reserve

Near Cape Rodney on the Mahurangi Peninsula in Northland is the Goat Island Marine Reserve.  Throughout the year crowds of visitors are drawn to the area to snorkel and dive around the reef between The University of Auckland Marine Research Centre and nearby Goat Island.  Those unable to swim can enjoy seeing fish swim around their legs as they paddle knee-deep on the nearby beach or from the reef itself.

This group of young people were taking a rest while others enjoy swimming with the fish between the reef and the island.
