This coastal landscape was taken from Cape Reinga, the most northerly point of main land New Zealand. Obviously, looking south. This is Te Werahi Beach with Cape Maria van Diemen and Motuopao Island in the distance. On this tiny island is a now derelict lighthouse. As you can see there was great weather and lighting on the day I visited. It would have been lovely to have walked along the Cape Reinga Coastal Walkway to Waitapu Point but time wasn’t on my side as I had a long drive back to Auckland that afternoon and evening.
