[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
Originally the Maori settlers called New Zealand “Aotearoa” when they arrived in NZ. Aotearoa means “Land of the Long White Cloud”.

In New Zealand our summers are often cloudy and hazy. In fact, if you can see the islands of the Hauraki Gulf (the stretch of water you can see here) very sharply, it usually means that we are heading for wet or windy weather. So we welcome these sort of hot summer days.

This photo is taken from State Highway No 1 north of Auckland overlooking a private farm to the Puhoi River and Wenderholm Regional Park. The Puhoi River, shown here with the tide out, is a very popular river to kayak up. And Wenderholm, with its Pohutukawa glade picnic area, safe beach and scenic walks, is a great family destination.

Excellent DOF, wonderfull bright colors, overall a photo that is very pleasing to the eye, well done!

We can see so much in this photo... It's very sharp and has a very interesting range of contrasts because of way the sun and the shadows play in this picture. Good work.

Janice, I really like the landscape. Thought I'd seen a lot of NZ in Lord of the Rings. You prove me wrong! (Of course). Thanks for showing me a piece of the world I'll probably never see 'live'.
Beautiful compo, I really like the wide aspect.

Janice, very beautiful picture. Great point of view. The shades of green are amazing.


Rien à dire, quel beau pays et quelles couleurs, c'est superbe! Et j'aime bien la façon dont vous présentez le paysage, avec plusieurs plans dont l'arbre qui contribue à l'échelle!
C'est très bien fait, bravo! Claude

Excellent landscape Janice,very good colorbalance and composition..like the tree in front to give the pic more depht here..very nice picture!!

Nice landscape view, hope to see other place in New Zealand. May be in future I'd like to go there :)

Another NZ beauty Janice. I see that you are a proud New Zealander, and proud of its heritage and History. I too hope to learn more about it one day. I saw many signs of names, none of which I could pronounce. My next visit will be right here.

Nice composition and DoF Janice,
Well Captured !!
