Capre Reinga is the nothern most point of New Zealand. Cape Maria van Diemen is a Dutch name, rather than all the wondeful Maori names the country offers.
I was a bright day, but wonderful spring light. polariser really brought out the sky and clouds. The entire place the end of the earth feel to it, and the bird seems to be going right there.
hope you enjoy!!

Hi Arnoud, this is good! I have never managed to get a good shot of this view. The seagull is an added bonus too. You have shown NZ so wonderfully in all your photos. This is an excellent composition, thank you

The curve of the bay and the sea colours are just fabulous - excellent POV and the seagull is a real bonus as he adds a great focal point in the foreground.

Well done photo of great location.
There were few more photos of Cape Maria van Diemen posted to TE, so I have created a theme for photos taken from exactly this spot.

Great shot! I like the combination of the great landscape with the action of the bird - it's rare to get a wildlife action shot with a background this gorgeous. Excellent!

What is special here? Turquoise color of water, clouds, the sky, seagull, waves, point of view and quality. Excellent landscape.

Another perfect illusion from the top of NZ.
Somehow the complete post looks a bit unsharp - including the letters - maybe it is a problem with my screen only. POV and the inclusion of the escaping gull are great and at the horizon marriage of sky and sea suit very well to lead the eye. Very well done and TFS Thomas

A very nice picture of a very nice landscape.
I like the panoramic composition and the way you integrate the waves on your picture..

Breathtaking landscape. This place does have an end of the world feel to it. Amazing composition, POV, colors and sharpness. And the bird simply added life to it. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Arnoud !
a perfect composition with the little must with this bird. Great light in the coast and very nice natural colours.
congratulations for your gallery
have a nice day

Great capture here with the gull in flight. The colour of the water is stunning. I like how the land curves round and gives depth. The clouds add interest too.

Hi Arnoud - this is fabuluous, the subtropical beach scenery is awesome, but with the flying bird, it becomes a masterpuiece, good use of polariser here.
MichaelTrezzi (3368) 2006-07-09 15:17
Hi Arnoud, a wonderful pic of Cap Reinga. Goos POV and good DOF. Very nice nearly diagonal composition. What makes the final touch is the seagull just taking off the cliff. Really a great picture. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Michael
