The historic old jetty at Tokaanu is a bit hard to find as there is only a small sign post on the road and its a mettle track with copious pot holes for you to navigate.

Well worth seeing this piece of New Zealand history which provided service for the steamers plying the lake transporting passengers and freight from here to Taupo town at the northern end of the lake before any form of roading was constructed. According to the info board this jetty was built around 1870 so has stood the test of time with a helping hand.

Sunrise shots off the deck.

Living north of Tauranga up in the hills so to speak we do get some fantastic sunrises that deserve imaging.

So have decided to gather up all the images into this page and add to it as the collection grows.

It can also  of interest to see the point at where the sun rises move from season to season. During the shortest days in winter it rises using this perspective on the left hand side of the Mount which will use as a bench-mark.Running towards summer this will migrate to the right.

Hope you enjoy viewing  these images as much as i have making them.

Beats waiting in Tauranga traffic trying to get to a decent spot to shot the sunrise…a rather hit and miss affair on a work day.

If you are interested in any of these images for your wall give me a shout…

Winters first day…

Winters first day…

The first day of winter started with this glorious display as the sun arose beside the great Mount Maunganui.

It can be frustrating watching the photogs living on the coast just wandering out to get dawn shots [ just a little dig ]. We all still have to get up early tho and be committed so really doesn’t matter where u are the opportunity is still there.

We wait to see how this season pans out…should be awesome as usual.
