A Touch of Fire

Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 19 February 2017 in Landscape & Rural.


Today's photo comes from Muriwai Beach in New Zealand. Until we researched our last trip to the North Island I was not aware of how close to Auckland this place is. It is only about an hour's drive and this is of course where the wonderful gannet colony is located as well.

After shooting birds for most of the evening I went over to the rock shelf on the northern side of the colony to shoot some seascapes. We had rotten luck when it came to sunrises and sunsets for the entire trip and this was the best one of the lot. It was quite slippery out there and I had to be careful not to fall forward and slip away into the gap with all my gear.

Oh, the things we do to take photos. I kind of think that for photographers, signs like "no people beyond this point" or "climbing on the cliffs prohibited" mean "this is where you need to go with your camera to take a good shot" :-)

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 1 second F/11.0 ISO 100 20 mm
