Photographer's Note

The resort town of Mt Maunganui from the 232m high summit of Mt Maunganui which gives the town its name. It is an isthmus city because the "mount" is at the end of this peninsula, though not obvious in this photo. Bay of Plenty (of RAIN I assure you!) is at left, Pilot Bay and Tauranga harbour at right, in the distance thunderstorms over inland areas and Rotorua, which is NZ's largest tourist trap. This is a stitch of 3 portrait format photos with 28mm lens. At the bottom of the hill is a caravan park, the 2 tall buildings is a motel. This is a major kiwifruit and avocado growing area, exported from the huge port of Tauranga, mercifully out of the view of this frame to the right.
