Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Barrier Sunsets

I mentioned at the end of my previous post that one of the great rewards at the end of a good day’s fishing is watching the sun set in the west.  The westward view from the  passage between Port Abercrombie and Port Fitzroy is past the small Sugarloaf Islands slightly to the north of Motuhaku Island.  These small island are highlighted as the sun sinks in the west when they are silhouetted against the orange sky.

The images below were taken as we approached the entrance to Port Fitzroy on the western side of Great Barrier Island, and then as we slowly motored to the nights anchorage. A great way to end a day.

    • Hi Tina, Thanks for your encouragement. I liked that one best. It was hard hand holding to capture that, even with a high ISO. Chris G
