Believe it or not, this was supposed to be a sunrise….but after rising before 6am and dashing down to the Waitangi River at the northern end of Ti Beach, Paihia in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, the sun rose behind a bank of cloud ! Bother…..! Anyway, not to waste such lovely light I took a few photos from the Waitangi Bridge. This one is looking up-stream towards the mangroves in the background.
What struck me with this photo was the lovely, clear results before the heat haze appeared when the sun was fully risen.
