Photographer's Note

Hi all. Another from our Northland excursion. This is Coopers Beach. I fell in love with the colour of the “sand” on this stretch of the coast and as luck would have we passed this way just on sunset. Yes that is the actual colour of the sand, only enhanced by the warm light of the evening. The sand here is more crushed Seashells than actual sand and this accounts for the colour.
This area is on the east coast and is about 70 Km’s north of the Bay Of Islands, the tourist center of Northland.
Just south of here is Mangonui Harbour, home of the “World famous in New Zealand” fish and chip shop. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.
In WS a close up of the “sand”.
Enjoy, Paul.
