Wainui Wipeout by Ken Wright

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Shot at Wainuiomata Beach on the rugged wild south coast of New Zealand’s North Island, these rocks are a favorite of mine, the seventh wave in the set is pure TNT.

Five mins latter and its all over, once the sun clears the hill the light is too bright to shoot. look at the image below, taken half an hour earlier, the light is softer and warmer, now you can see how harsh the the light is once the sun starts to clear the hill.

This was part of a mutual learning curve with Henk Stolk who I’m sure will never take another dry seascape again ;-)

Shot on a Nikon D700 with 17-35mm lens

Wainui Rush

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i have recently moved to Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.
