On a clear day you can see forever!!

I took this photo yesterday from Murrays Bay beach at 9.15am. It is autumn here in New Zealand now and yesterday was just like summer. My husband and I walked to the next beach for a cappuccino in the local café, and I just had to bring my camera along – and I was so pleased I had.

The water you see here is the Hauraki Gulf, and the main island in the distance is Rangitoto, the largest and youngest of Auckland’s volcanoes.

The islands to the left of Rangi are Motutapu and Rakino.

As we walked along the under the cliff to the next beach I noticed all the clouds in the sky, but when we came back an hour later the sky above was completely blue with some clouds way in the distance over the islands.

It was such a beautiful day yesterday, and the heat got up to 21C. Today was another hot day, but it was cloudier. We're happy to keep it like this. . .

You got an excellent one Janice. Thanks to show us so nice seascapes from your country.

Hi Janice, I am glad to see that Auckland has skies like that too of late I have been thinking my polariser hasn't been functioning. LOvely paler colours and well composed. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Duck Reach Track II’

Well done

What an open, wide, quiet, blue beauty
The sky is an important factor in this photo
I have tried to improve that
Look in the workshop

Not better but just my taste

This is lovely, I too have walked on this beach all the way to Takapuna... very nice shot, love the waves playing to the left and the great composition the clouds finish with perfect ease of being...

Yes I'm glad you took your camera also... :)

And also this tells me about your Autumn there in my homeland. It sounds nice... here we are having a very cold start to spring, wet snow for much of the day before yesterday and a bit yesterday also...


Hi Janice,
