The Boy At The Foot Of The Cliff

Took this shot earlier in the year ,on summer holidays at the wondrous Mangawhai Heads, north of Auckland.

The head’s cliffs have been shaped and worn smooth through wind and sea action, and are almost building like in structure.

But it is the unknown lad scouring for coastal treasure that draws me into this scene .

Engrossed in his hunt, he is all earnest endeavour and innocent adventure.

He is early on in the greater adventure of life.

Looming above, the cliffs are yet to be scaled…but there to be scaled.

I hope he manages the climb of manhood safely and gets to take in the awesome view at the top.

I’ll never know…anyway, I’m still clambering up, one precarious foothold at a time…
