[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Musick Point is the headland of the peninsula that forms the eastern shore of the Tamaki River in Bucklands Beach, a suburb of Manukau City in New Zealand.[1] Musick Point was named after Ed Musick, a famous aviator, in 1942,[2] although the headland is also known as Te Waiarohia, after an ancient Māori stronghold. Today it is occupied by a golf club and a disused radio station.

The peninsula itself (known as Te Naupata in Māori)[3] terminates between the Motukorea Channel and the Tamaki Strait in the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland. The suburbs of Bucklands Beach and Eastern Beach lie immediately to the south.

I shot this looking at Rangitoto Island .

I'm not sure what you're using, or doing to achieve these last few shots, but they're really beautiful. The colors are outstanding. Great perspective also.
Great work

A gorgeous photo! The colors purple and orange look SO nice together, opposite ends of the color spectrum! What a place to live! We have a few Kiwi here in TL that are good friends. Janice and Dawn, check them out!

Bonjour Darren,
Bon travail de prise de vue et de post-traitement qui a abouti a cette superbe image, Félicitations.
Bonne soirée.

It's a good spot, I had a photo shoot out there myself last year - some great sweeping views, and so easily accessible.

Was this the same combination of filters, or just one? The colours and light are certainly intensely captured and the end result is very engaging!

Hi Darren,
Splendid image. Your low point of view gives a lovely
perspective of the capture. Violet that goes over to
orange and the lovely sky gives a dreamy effect.
Well done.
regards.
