Three Mile Lagoon
This scene could be the quintessential New Zealand landscape and perfect for photography. It is reached via a one and a half hour walk from Okarito on the West Coast of the South Island.
I was looking for an alternative viewpoint to shoot Totaranui Beach from. Hence I waded into the water and capture this simple composition of the calm sea and the beautiful dusk light.
This surf life saving tower is an icon on Bethells Beach. Therefore I lined it up in the middle of the image while taking advantage of what was a fabulous sunset to light the scene.
