The Lookout

This is Kennedy Point Reserve, Waiheke Island.


I went to this small reserve shortly after arriving on the island, scouting for potential sunset locations. I came away a bit disappointed due to the lack of rocks or anything else interesting on the beach.


As I walked back up the hill to my car, I sat down on the grass next to this bench to have a bit of a rest (hey it was a hot day and the hill is steeper than it looks!). As I looked out towards the sea I realised what an amazing view it was right there and then! I unpacked my gear and took a few snaps while still sitting on the grass. I'm glad I did because this turned out to be one of my favourite shots.


I decided to make this an HDR (3 exposures; -2, 0, +2) to really bring out the green and blue. Hope you like it.
