Happy Holidays - April 2007 - Kapiti coast - Sun setting over my children playing on the beach
New Zealand is one of the first places in the world to greet each new day – but for me it’s the spectacular daily farewell to the sun that is much more impressive.
Or maybe that’s just because I witness a lot more sunsets than sunrises.
I’m not an early bird.
Having the Kiwi Blog Bus has enabled us to witness many jaw-dropping sunsets over a variety of NZ locations.
What follows here is a selection of photographs I have taken since we moved to New Zealand in 2008.
(and …. yes… it really is that beautiful)
An evening at Lake Taupo
Looking over Whakatane and the Pacific
Out for an evening stroll at Lake Tarawera outlet
Kakepuku Mountain - an old volcanic cone near Te Awamutu
- The sun sets on Auckland Airport
Sunset over the rooftops of Cambridge
Kapiti coast and a Norfolk Pine
Evening at Lake Karapiro
Sublime skyline in Cambridge
Simply stunning sunset at Lake Tarawera
The end of a day at Mount Maunganui
OK... Strictly speaking it's not a sunset photo... but I love this evening picture of my menfolk - taken as we watched the sun setting at Mount Maunganui
