Photographer's Note

A family enjoys the tranquility of the setting sun on the Esplanade at Russell, the oldest European town in New Zealand, in the Bay of Islands. Originally known as Kororareka, the town had such a notorious reputation as the 'hell-hole of the Pacific', that the name was changed to Russell after the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi with the Maori in 1840. Today Russell is a tranquil beautiful spot which belies its earlier infamous reputation.
