Sunrise in the centre

The centre being the central North Island, rather than the coast. So many people take wonderful photographs of the sun coming up over the sea. That’s easy to do, all you need is an alarm clock and to point your camera East in the morning. Inland it’s a bit more of a challenge. There are hills and stuff in the way. Here are a handful of local sunrises I’ve been lucky enough to witness.

You've heard of the Verve song, 'The drugs don't work'? This is the rural version 'The cows don't care'. Sunrise in the Manawatu.
