Kapiti Island seen from Paraparaumu Beach. The cloud formation is as it was that day (except for the lens flare), though the beach has been edited (there was an ugly fence in the foreground that I could not avoid capturing in the shot).

    WOW just love this – the flare is really great as well.

  • Thanks so much!! The flare was added in after the fact, it seems to be turning up in a lot of my work at the moment, I may or may not be a little flare-obsessed right now…. :P
