Muriwai is one of my favourite places on the planet… It’s beauty and fierceness are indescribable. Every time I am there, I am shocked by it and as I leave I am planning my next trip. It’s only an hour from home, so it’s not that difficult. The seabirds are incredible, here are twoContinue reading “Muriwai Beach”

More Bits of Summer
Sorry for missing out on yesterday. As I was preparing to post, there was an enormous bang – like an explosion somewhere out on the street. The lights flashed a second and then the power went out.

A Mighty View
I’ve put this one up at 1024 pixels because it’s just so BIG! It needs as much room as it can have. It probably needs to hand on a wall at least 16 x 20 to do it justice, but we can’t do there… Took this photo on the 6th of this month, driving onContinue reading “A Mighty View”
