I am also spending a few days at the Coromandel Coast, further north from Papamoa. After 2 days of cyclonic weather, the heavy rain has finally let up and just a thick layer of cloud remains.
This was photographed this morning at Otama Beach near Kuaotunu.
I don't have good net access atm, so uploading a small version only, not sure about the quality of the image...
I hope everyone is having a great start to 2012, I will catch up on all your streams later in the week. :)
