[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second in my series of shots taken along the Westland coast between Greymouth and Westport.
I took this from from my friends house above Woodpecker Bay looking north.
In the centre distance is Fox River or Tiromoana,and in the far distance is Charleston and Cape Foulwind,just south of Westport.
This could only be the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand ... the erect fronded Nikau palms in the foreground are a dead giveaway.

Hope you like the shot.

Superb composition too

Hi Steve,
Nice commanding view with some interesting points with the palms and rocks. Fine composition and sense of depth with the receading shoreline curving back to the horizon.

Hey Steve!
Very sharp capture with a brilliant composition.
This picture really tempts me to fly over to New Zealand.
Well done,

This pic defines my love of waterside locations for pictures. Super shot full of points of candy for the eyes...Clouds and sky, shrubs and trees..just a wonderful landscape!

Hi Steve,
