View through the branches of a pohutukawa tree and down to the waves of Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour yesterday.
‘Waitemata’ means ‘sparkling waters’ in Maori.
Very apt – the sun’s reflection from the water was absolutely dazzling to the eyes.
Anyway, enjoy your day people. I hope it sparkles like this view.
Carved statue at Orakei Marae and Rangitoto Island are twin guardians, as a sea fog rests on the waters of Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour during the week.
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.
