Photographer's Note

This wild West Coast is within an hours drive of city centre of Auckland. This is the Tasman Sea - next stop Australia 2000kms away. This photo was taken from the cliffs above Mercer Bay close to the surf beach of Piha. We often take our clients walking along these cliffs & two days before the sea was flat calm, not a ripple upon the surface which is unusual. Mercer Bay, down below, is only accessible by a steep hazardous cliff scramble, or from the sea - not recommended on this day!
