It has continually been raining this week in New Zealand, which makes it almost impossible to go out on a photography shoot with my not waterproof camera. Instead, I have been going through and deleting old photos. I found a photo shoot my mum and I did recently with a photography group at Muriwai Beach, back when I was first learning to use the camera. Because of this, the majority of the photos were shot in automatic rather than manual and half of them weren’t even usable.
Muriwai Beach is one of the many that dots Auckland’s west coast. Along with several other beaches, there are also the Waitakere Ranges and Titirangi with its contemporary art museum. An excellent day trip, the west coast is enjoyed by travellers and locals alike for its lush, wild beauty.
Muriwai Beach, in particular, is known for its Gannet colony, the only one on the New Zealand mainland.
