Photographer's Note

Rural/ Urban Auckland

This photo is taken from Okura, about 8 kms north from where I live at Murrays Bay, in the East Coast Bays of Auckland. I am overlooking farmland above Long Bay Beach and the houses are located in Torbay.

The water you can see is part of the Hauraki Gulfand the large grey island is Rangitoto, Aucklandís youngest volcano. Rangitoto can be seen from just about everywhere in Auckland.

And way in the distance behind Rangitoto is south-east of Auckland - Thames, Hauraki plains area, and maybe the Kaimai ranges.

Unfortunately, this lovely rolling hillside is destined to be zoned for housing development in the next few years. There has been a lot of public outcry about it, but unfortunately the developers won!!
