Photographer's Note

Looking back to the Waitakere mountains from the dunes at Whatipu - a wild and beautiful place, and where it is easy to find solitude even though it is only 45 minutes from Auckland.
On the right is the entrance to Manukau harbour and Cutter rock, a sacred spot for the Maori as they believe that after death spirits pass here on their way to Hawaiiki, their homeland off the northern-most point of the mainland at Cape Reinga.
I had trouble uploading this panorama, and had to distort it. Click on the photo for the more accurate full-size photo!
