Very impressive first two shots from New Zeland. This one has fantastic colours and beautiful landscape behind. The clouds on the sky are exposed well, too. Keep it up, looking foreward to seeing more! :) Have a nice trip!

How I envy you ... N.Z. is certainly a place I would love to visit.
What a wonderful shot!
A great textural f/g to lead the eyes rapidly towards the water, the amber coloured horizon with its silhouetted hills and then the textured sky which, curiously, matches the f/g.
I look forward to your next posts.

Beautiful sunrise Hans and very well captured.. Interesting how even though the horizon bisects the middle the whole composition is well layered into classic 'thirds'.
Lovely colour too..

Hello Hans,a beautiful sunrise scene with a variety of bands of different textures and colours.
You were very lucky to be able to capture this scene.What a coincidence that 'Jackal' shot it too.
Looking forward to seeing more shots from this picturesque part of the world.
I have never been, but would love to be able to visit some time.
Tfs, regards Jean.

This a stunning sunrise to wish you a great welcome in N.Z.
The sun must say : GreenBaron arrives, I make him the best light!
The gleams on the textured beach in foreground gives at this classic sunrise, a very special mood.
Bravo and enjoy your trip!

I do like the layer effect you have managed to capture here Hans, Great colours, and patterns on the sand. Well done to you...
Well im up early in anticipation of the big meet up today..see you in a few hours Hansie.
The slight horizion thing...doesnt stand out...no worries.

I wish I could see beautiful sunrises like this every day. The problem is that they are just too early for me!!!
What a lovely scene and the colours are so vibrant.
I do like the patterns in the sand made by the water receding.
And what a shame Jack / Jackal hadn't stopped at Murrays Bay this morning, as he took his photo only 3 kms away.
It's great to have you here.

Goh... je zal toch zo wonen........ ;-)
Prachtig uitzicht Hansie... hier wil ik elke ochtend wel om 5 uur voor uit mijn bed.... als ik daarna nog maar even terug mag! hahahahaahahh
Mooi is het in ieder geval wel!
En leuk ook, dat je er zo met open armen wordt ontvangen... nou ja... op die douane na dan! hihihi
Groetjes aan iedereen daar!

This photo really sends the feeling that I need to see a sunrise over the beach every morning. The feeling from the photo itself is "awestruck" by the beauty. I can only imagine being there enjoying the scene. The gold tones are beautiful as are the layers of colors. Yes the horizon isn't perfectly level, but you can just blame it on "jet lag" :) Lisa

Quite a Coincidence taking the same shot at almost the same time and you coming half way round the world to do it. It was a beautiful scene and you have captured it well.
I hope you brought a few memory sticks for all these photographs, looking forward to seeing them - enjoy your trip

Hi Hans, You make this spot look very good indeed. The secret may be in the early hour you arose into action. Leaning some Maori phrases too, good on you! Look forward to seeing more photos of my original homeland. TFS. Murray.

Verdomme, das echt een mooie zonsondergang. Als dit je eerst foto is, dan kan ik niet wachten tot wat er komen gaat. Ik wist dat Janice op een mooi plekje woont, maar dat het er zo mooi is....
De kleuren zijn wonderschoon. Je composition met de bijzondere vormen in het natte zand is super en het laagje donkere wolken maakt het geheel af.
Groeten en nog erg veel plezier uit een grijs Nederland.
