New Zealand sunsets part 1

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

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

If you enjoyed these pictures have a look at this post “Falling waters of New Zealand”
or “Blue toes at Blue Springs”.

    These are gorgeous. They’re just the thing I love to see as we get ready for our big move (still six months away).
