  • Contemplation on the Coastal Walkway

  • By danza
  • A man watches the sunset from the central deck of the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway. There are many locations along the 11km walkway where you can relax at the end of the day and be at peace with your thoughts.
  • A Ball Of Light On Manawapou Beach

  • By Tim Bond
  • While shooting the sunset at Manawapou Beach recently I decided I would try and make a "ball of light". This is a single 60 second exposure using a couple a glowsticks and an LED torch attached to a cable being spun around to capture the light trails. Quite a bit of fun trying to get it right :)
  • Wai iti Beach Reflections

  • By Peter Florence
  • Wai iti Beach is one of the best spots in Taranaki to catch some amazing sun sets. The surging tide shifts the sand, sometimes leaving large puddles at low tide and on a still evening the puddles reflect the amazing colours of the setting sun.
