Sunset at Takapuna Beach

One day after work we hurried home to get my camera, then walked along the beach until after sunset.  This beautiful beach is a 5 minute walk from work and a 10-15 minute walk from our flat.  Did I mention how lucky we are to be in such a beautiful place???

Wow, a 10 - 15 minute walk to see such beauty, you did mention once or twice how fortunate you are and I totally agree!!

The reflection of the orange on the water is stunning, it's perfect lighting for a sunset shot. Another fantastic photo Karen!
