"Typical December weather with four seasons in one afternoon, this print captures these different moods & accentuates this bay’s split personality of rugged rocky shoreline vs softly sweeping beach. After scouting this elevated position, I had to wait patiently for the sun to pierce the clouds over Oakura. Finally, this happened as the local dive boat was coming ashore, but I also captured the scene without the boat & tractor, should you prefer."
