Archway Islands, Wharariki. New Zealand.

from 200.00

What incredible colours!!! This had been one of the hardest images for us to acquire in New Zealand. Situated in the northernmost extremity of the South Island, this is the most spectacular coast in the region. From the end of Wharariki Road, a hike over farmland and a trek through a section of coastal forest to the beach, you are greeted by a great expanse of sand between dunes, before the longish trek to the water's edge.

Day 1 was a failure. Day 2 & 3...the same. We only assigned 3 days here as you can only shoot here on low tide & the tide was changing each day for the worse, but we thought we’d take a risk and stay for one more sunset & boy did it pay off! We decided to trial the new Lee 'Little Stopper’ and did a long exposure of 240secs and was able to get all those incredible pastel pinks & yellows as the sun’s colour moved across the sky.
