New Zealand coastal awesomeness

Christmas is coming! Pohutukawa in bloom 10x12 canvas $300
Christmas is coming! Pohutukawa in bloom. People in the Northern Hemisphere will tell you a snowy scene is better. While they shiver in front of their fires in the dark, mid afternoon.
I left the house to take this. I mean I know all my pictures require me to at least leave the room if not the house. But I popped down to the river to catch the last rays of this sunset. Pretty cool, even If I do say so myself. Which I think I'm allowed to?

I went for a walk along the beach at last light, saw a bloke fishing. I don't think he caught anything though. He seemed happy enough.

Our coast is the most beautiful coast in all the world. I'm not at all biased. I consider beautiful coasts on their merits.

This place is called Fishermans Bay. Seems like people with boats have taken this as a literal description. Or maybe they like it because it's a nice place to park a boat?

This is Cape Maria Van Diemen. She was the wife of Abel Tasman's boss. He must have liked her. The North Western most Point of New Zealand

A cruise ship entering the Hauraki Gulf. Which is where you arrive in Auckland from the open sea. Taken at 5:30am. The ship is the Diamond Princess. That's Rangitoto Island behind her. It's quite a scene really. All things considered.

This is from Mahurangi West where most people never go, they don't go to Mahurangi East much either. New Zealand has an awful lot of places with few people visiting. Which is most excellent for those who prefer a bit of solitude with their awesome natural beauty.

If you found yourself in Russell of an evening, and fancied a quiet refreshing beverage. You might have this as your backdrop, or foreground, depending on where you sit.

Most people don't stop here. Wenderholm. 10x12 canvas $200
Most people don’t stop here. They are too busy sitting driving north or south on State Highway One, about 5 kilometres away. Silly really as this is clearly a very peaceful place to stop. Wenderholm.
This is also Wenderholm. It get's two pictures here because it's so terribly calm and peaceful. This was taken at 8am on a Sunday Morning. When you were in bed

Under the Jetty at Tolaga Bay. The longest Jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. This is the much sought after, under the jetty shot. All you have to do is get here, which is miles from anywhere, on a nice day at low tide. Simple
