"I couldn't imagine a more serene, lazy summer's day. The familiar summer sound of the cicadas, bees buzzing in the pohutukawa blossom & the gentle lapping of the waves on this pristine stretch of coast - total bliss. And where is everyone? Not here, thank goodness! I shot this epic file at varying points of focus to maintain as much detail in the foreground of the Queen Anne Lace (daisies) as possible. It caused me a few headaches when stitching all 40 frames together, but it allows this idyllic scene to be enlarged to super sizes!"
