Well at least three seasons; started bitterly cold and gusty at 5am, then reached 27C, before a storm arrived late afternoon.

A couple of postcard images first:

This is at dawn looking east.

This is 3 images combined; a long exposure to smooth out the water, another for the sky and another for the foreground and rocks.

Looking west 5 minutes later.

And I think this one captures the scale of the cliffs as they recede in the distance, note the seagulls.

I was at the Bay of Islands when the storm arrived. Dramatic sky but I couldn’t get close enough to the cliff edge to put water in the foreground (damn those safety rails and my conscience) so the shot is a bit unbalanced towards the sky.
