More beaches, more sea lions

Last year we went out the Otago peninsula and saw a lovely beach on the opposite side of the harbour. We never got out there on that trip, but made it this time. It's called Aramoana beach. It is lovely. Are you tired of me saying that yet? But this is the best beach yet to bring a model out and pose on rocks, or the sand beside rocks, or the seats on the rocks. We saw three other people on that end of the beach. Very private. Very quiet.

From where we parked it's a short walk through the dunes and beach grass, and then you see this when you get to the beach.

Here's the other side of that hole in the rock.

Linda posed on a rock wall a little further down.

The obligatory artsy shot.

The clouds were starting to roll over that big bluff, and I was loving space between the clouds and the beach.

Here's a close up of that bluff.

We saw several sea lions, but we didn't want to get too close.

In addition to all the other great rock that I loved, Linda found this one.

The selection of driftwood is growing by leaps and bounds, but I'm going to stick with Driftwood of the Day.

  1. So, Sandy has a sister Sarah. I love #1. The 3 points of land, the diagonals in the sky and the land, and the format all work very well together. You might want to try an adjustment curve to brighten the highlights, which would really help set of those rocks. #5 is also stunning. I can see how someone could have field day out there with a collection of models and a HMUA. Cheers, Sean
