Hello to all TN friends,
I like to dedicate this seascape image to my Kiwi friend Janice Dunn!
This was captured at the Onetangi beach at the Waiheke Island, it took 1/2 hour ferry crossing from Auckland to the Island!

Kia Ora Janice, this is for you and hope you like it!

Hi Tony,

You have here a good dedication from a beautiful colored seascape.Good deepth working trough the rocks on the foreground.

Best Regards Gert

Hi Tony!

I'm sure she will like it! How could it be different, it's such a peaceful and beautiful picture. As simple and as delightful as we are used to from you. The picture is well composed with an interesting foreground that leads us into it. Moreover, the colours highlight this calm atmosphere.

Kind regards

Hi Tony,
Amazing landscape, looks like a paradise for a UK resident - no people. Very good composition, DOF, beautiful colours.

Hi Tony!

Very nice island shot with fine details, I especially like it with those heavy clouds in the back. Nice to see one of your wonderful landscapes again! TFS

Best regards,

THAT is my kind of beach. Looks so sunny and yet the ocean too is placid...a good day to just grab some rays...like I used to at Lake Tahoe..but it is still winter down there right? So what is the temperature at this location? In F?

Hi Tony,

You've done it again with a most beautiful seascape. Magnificent composition with the rocks, sand, sea, mountains, and glorious sky. Colors are just fantastic. Even the clouds in the sky are special.


Kia Ora Tony,

How it's live DU. I think if I see this picture very well.

You have created a depht into this photo by taking the bay and the hills at the BG. After this hills are very heavy clouds to see. Beautiful. The sunlight on the sand on the FG is very good.

THAT's my kind of beach Tony. I think Janice highly appreciates this gesture.

Regards and TFS BOB

Hi Tony. a very relaxing looking place you have for us today. With blue seas and sky and white soft clouds. A empty beach all but for a few gulls. I like the colours in the rocks. well done TFs.

I suppose there is no end to the beautiful coastal scenes to be photographed in your part of the world. This one is really nicely exposed. I like the sharp foreground rocks.

Hello Tony. Perfect sky/land division in very good saturation and I'm sure the image will please Janice. Excellent detail in well managed perspective. Beautiful view and thanks for sharing. Jusni

Thanks Tony - so you went to Waiheke this week. Lovely island isn't it? Did you eat at the nice cafe on the beach at Onetangi? Maybe it is shut over winter. The beach looks so empty here - roll on summer!! Lovely memories of summer in 2007 when we spent a week's holiday here - thank you

More storms due this weekend and I was off to the mountains but now the skiing is off - what a shame.

I read this on the net:
Another weekend, another wintry blast for Auckland.
We've had rain on every Saturday since June 21.
Seven-day cycles are common in winter time, it takes that long for one weather system to clear as another comes in, but unfortunately this one has set in so that it arrives every Saturday.

I'll repeat myself - ROLL ON SUMMER

my dear friend Tony
sorry for my delay. I am still in field trip and I usually far from internet and of course from TN. This is great post in your usual quality. Beautiful seascape. Nicely composed. Thanks for sharing, best wishes from most east point of Turkiye
