Sandy Bay Cliffs - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

A panorama taken from Sandy Bay, which is next to Cape Reinga. The orrange marker shows one of the walking trails in the area. The day was overcast with low lying clouds hiding the tops of the hills. Climbing round to this rocky shelf was one thing, getting back with a rising tide and closer waves was another.
