‘Reef & Volcano’
Sometimes you just have to marvel at, and appreciate, what you are so very familiar with.
Being a born and bred Aucklander, it is easy to take to take for granted this gorgeous vista of a rock pool set in ancient lava ,against the backdrop of the volcanic majesty of Rangitoto Island, across the water.
There it was again, for the umpteenth time , on a walk along the Waitemata Harbour earlier today.
Except today, it especially resonated with me and compelled a picture.
I am lucky to see this view any day I want and thought I would share some of that luck with you…enjoy!
Rangitoto is the volcanic island that dominates the entrance to Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.
It’s Maori name means ‘Blood Sky’; hence the treatment I have given to this shot, taken today.
Rangitoto is an absolute icon, born in violent eruption but today a calm and reassuring presence of nature, and for me, of home.
