New Zealand fern at sunset......! by 

Great Barrier Island, New Zealand usually produced some stunning sunrises and sunsets but even the more subdued could be lovely. This misty sunset rather set off the Ponga fern which grew just outside our veranda. After twelve years of sunsets from the house we still wondered at their beauty. TV was quite often switched off just to sit on the deck and admire all we could see before us.

    What a gorgeous setting for a beautiful sunset Roy and how fortunate you are in having an outlook like this. Including those ferns in silhouette was a master stroke and makes for a superb photo. Excellent work indeed.

  • Thank you Peter – that fern just appreared one day and just kept on growing ! We had to trim the front side of it to get the 4 X 4 up the driveway ! Unfortunately we no longer live on the Island but in the far north of NZ. but we still get great sunsets from here.

    Wow! Sure is a stunning sunset Roy! Love the silhouette of the fern! :o)

  • Many thanks Marilyn – we also used to see dolphins and orca in the bay and whales passing the headland besides the lovely sunsets.
