It's certainly as beautiful as I imagined :)

You're right about a storm - two days later we had gales and heavy rain.

Beautiful shot, Walter! I love sky, sunrise, sunset and cloud pictures. Yours is lovely!

Thanks - I love the colouring in this. If you like carefully (and use a bit of imagination) the cloud seems to have the shape of a dragon spitting fire...

Hi mathew, was just cruising the google site and saw your pic's, my brother owns this camping ground and i got a wee tinge of homesickness for those cool brisk NZ mornings, with the mist rising up from the ground and through the trees. Dragons Breath. There was always something magical about mornings like that. Great pics.

Thanks, I'm glad it helped take you home! We only stayed at Matakohe for one night, but it was very relaxing - peace and quiet. When the lights went out it was incredibly dark, so a great place to lie on the floor and watch the stars.
