Nice morning shot!

Hi Phil, usual theme and composition there :), but you've been there at unusual time (did you make an overnight stay at Roarting Bay?) and you've got excelent light as reward!

Very good one (as others in your gallery).

Hi Tom, thanks.

We were traveling around the south in a little Mazda van. I scoped out the location the evening before and got some so, so photos. we stayed that night at the campground, just up the road, at Kaka Point. I convinced my wife to get up very early and drove out in the dark - sorry to the other campers, but the little van is fairly quiet :)

Ah, I see! I think I stayed at the same campground at Kaka Point (one above village). Early starts are essential for photogrpahers... Mostly I was not able to manage this, getting to destination on bike is much slower (NZ country is quite hilly) and in the morning I had too much self service tasks... But I don't complain at all!
