The Many Shades of Beauty in Ahipara: A Photo Essay

Pin It
As I took yet another photo of the gorgeous colours illuminating over Tauroa Point tonight, I once again appreciated the timeless beauty that I get to experience regularly from the comfort of my own home. Part of me wishes that I owned our property, but the adventurer in me is happy to just rent a priceless beachfront spot for now.Over the past year and a half, I have accumulated some amazing sunset shots from and around my house. Most are of the same thing – either Tauroa Point (“The Reef”), Whangatauatia (the mountain of Ahipara) or the view of the bay straight across from our deck; and most are taken without any kind of filter, usually on my iPhone to capture the picturesque beauty.

Enjoy the variations of some of my favourite photos!
