240˚ Tauranga harbour entrance by 

Taken at the base of Mount Maunganui in Mount Mauau Reserve looking into TaUranga Harbour and pilots bay, this is an eight image merge in photoshop, the tree on the left is inline with the bank on the right. The small dot on the right in front of the tree is a Maori Warrior statue and red beacon that guards the port (left) side of the entrance to the Harbour, you can walk out to near the statue at low tide, the draw back on the out going tide is scary, I tried to get through at knee deep and it was to strong for me.

The kid in the kayak really struggled to get back to shore.

this was taken about 8.30pm.

Taken on a Nikon D700 with 17-35mm Nikkor Lens, Cokin Z-Pro ND4/ND2/warm, tripod

Its a shame you can’t see this full size, the detail is superb

I did chat with the young family later on who were from Melbourne.

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.

    Looks like you had a great holiday Ken, you have definitely come up with a lot of good photos. Well Done once again. I think the tide runs through the entrance here at about 6-8 knots, the ships can only come in to port or leave at high and low tide when theres no tide running.

  • lots more to come paul ;-)
