Himatangi Beach, New Zealand 2010

Winter Sunset, Himatangi Beach,
New Zealand 2010


A winter sunset on a blustery evening at Himatangi Beach on the west coast of the lower North Island of New Zealand.

I had wanted to venture further out onto the beach to take some photogrpahs but the wind was too strong for the camera to remain still (the bellows tend to act a bit like a sail...). Fortunately a sand-dune to the left provided some shelter from the wind and I was able to make this photo of the stream that crosses the beach on its way to the Tasman Sea.
