Hello to TN friends,
After my last posting of a small insect, now sharing with you another seascape which captured at the evening time at Anawhata which is not far away from Piha! not able to have the evening sunset shot due to a zig-zag steep climb on a small trial to the top which require at least 30mins to do that! got to reach the top before the dark set in!
Hope you can enjoy the view of this place of Anawhata and thank you for viewing and time
Best regards to everyone!

Hi Tony

Great composition - the colours and tones are beautiful. I really like the disturbed sand which leads the eye into the shot.


Hello Tony,
Another beautiful seascape from you!
Excellent composition .
I liked the POV, colours, contrasts and light.
The footprints n the sand and the breeze touched grass gives it an enchanting look.
Lovely shot.

Hello Tony,
You have a good eye for the lighting and composition of your landscapes and this fine image of Anawhata is no exception.
Excellent use of the evening light.
TFS this fine image,

Sometimes when I open a thumbnails....and see such super images as this, I find myself curiously cursing under my breath. It is more out of frustration that I don't have the quality needed to get this kind of image..nor do I live anywhere near such a beautiful place..You are blessed sir and a fine photographer. Well done.

Very impressive scene, it really has a depth to it, the hills are nicely framed with the clouds and an excellent POV. regards h

Hello Tony,
another lovely seascape!
I like how, though there is only a small bit of sea in the shot, we can immediately tell this is the coast: wind-blown coarse grasses, sea spray or sand in front of the headland, a sandy trodden path leading to a beach and of course that magnificent blue sky with fluffy clouds :-D
Just stunning as always my friend.
Well done!!

Blue sky, white clouds, green plantation and sandy area very beautiful. On left, small part show sea and it supplies a richness for composition. thank you very much for sharing and showing us.
best regards to you and all New Zealand

Hello Tony,

Another amazing landscape from NZ. Great composition, colours, lighting and sharp details.



Hello Tony,
An interesting coastal landscape, where the sand dunes seem to be covered with grass which is a good thing!
As usual a fine point of view and an attractive composition, and i suppose you face autumn now as the summer is ending...
Pablo -

Altro bellissimo paesaggio, splendida composizione con un grande gioco di luci e colori, ottimi i dettagli e molto belli i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Tony
Your landscapes and pictures keep being as marvellous and astonishing as ever, with such a clarity, sharpness and beauty that I really love. Have I ever said how much I envy you?
Thank you very much for showing such beautiful places so well.
My best regards

Hi Tony, fascinating landscape with fantastic colors and wonderful light, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Tony, Thank you for this beautiful landscape near the sea.
I like the FG sunlit grasses and the sense of spaceousness of the open beach area leading to the high hills. Excellent exposure and composition once again. Tfs mf, Richard

Hello Tony

Another post card quality image.
The composition is wonderful.
I like how the sandy path leads the eye through to the beach beyond.
The clarity is very good,well focused with good sharpness.
The lighting is well done.


Hello Tony,

Long shadows and soft light. Yeh men, that´s the afternoon sun. I like this work. The contrast between light and darker parts are beautiful. And it is real the coastline in the neighbourhood of PIHA. A little bit misty conditions after the rock, just like PIHA BEACH. The colours and tones are beautiful, like always. Have a nice day and best regards Bob

Hi Tony!

Lighting is fantastic here! The dirt blown up brakes the overall sharpness very nicely. The place is beautiful as always and with pretty clouds too!

Sorry for being so short, for a few weeks it will remain because of work. TFS!

Best regards,

Hello Toby. The foreground with trail of footprints is really stunning here with beautiful contrast of the grass. The diagonal light capturing the dreamy mood of the beach is brilliant. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hi good friend Tony,
Another wonderful landscape shot and you portray this charming place so beautifully. Superb light and shadow effect and you managed the exposure very skillfully. The blue sky sets up a nice tone to the shot and it looks majestic. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi My Dear Friend TONY,

Excellent in composition... tones... lights..

Hola My dear friend Tony.
Un muy hermoso paisaje, los detalles de la huellas en la arena lucen de sobramanra. Finos detalles de la brisa del mar detras de la pequeña montaña le dan realce a la foto. El encuadre escogido para la presentacion es de muy buen gusto, y los colores son hermosos tambien.
Saludos Tony.
Have a nice weekend My friend.

Hi Tony,
seems a good place to spent the hole day.. i can imagine myself with my "mate", jejeje :P
it´s a nice composition, Tony: the eye can follow the path over the sand, that´s a good POV. I also like the mix of greens and the blue of the sky.
The light comming from the left is good too!
good work!
have a nice day

Hi Ho,
The evening light was very beautiful and the wind played an important role in this image. Result is once again a beautiful seascape.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Tony,

This is a very good seascape and I love the composition. The pathway is so important as a lead in to the picture and the textures in the grass are really nice. The fine line of cloud running across the sky are the cherry on the cake. One from the top drawer.
