Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Early Morning Dip

On many mornings throughout the year, at around about dawn, there is a group of swimmers who come to Takapuna Beach on Auckland’s North Shore to swim.  In their form-fitting wetsuits and rubber bathing caps they take to the water like a pack of seals to swim the approximately one kilometre length of the beach and back again.

One morning in early March there was a wonderful golden sunrise which silhouetted this group entering the water at the southern end of the beach.  Rangitoto Island is outlined in the background; the sunrise reflected in the wet sand.
