Photographer's Note

Omaha Beach is around 50 kilometres north of Auckland city, near the town of Warkworth. A feature of this beach, popular with some of the more affluent of Auckland who have holiday homes here, are the coloured shells which wash up on the beach, especially after a period of easterly wings. The island on the horizon is Little Barrier, New Zealand's first fully protected wildlife sanctuary, dating from the 1880s. A special permit is required to visit.
