Stars over Papamoa

We travelled down to Tauranga for the weekend with our good friends JP and his wife Helen. Katrina had won a placement on a photography workshop with top nature photographer – Kim Westerskov. We stayed along the beautiful Bay of Plenty coastline at Papamoa Beach – Top 10 Holiday Park. Whilst unpacking, we noticed how clear the sky was – with the Milky Way very prominent. So we started shooting…

Darren Davis - Love your work. What a beautiful Island. Most enjoyable.

The silhouette’s jumping on the beach is exceptional.

Keep up the good work.

Regards

Darren

Warren Williams - Thanks Darren! We’re glad you love the shots.

Mabel - Wow! You have some great photos!
I was wondering if you could recommend me to any good locations for taking photos of the night sky in Auckland? (near Auckland)
It’s hard to find a place with not a lot of light pollution.
Thanks!

Warren Williams - Hi Mabel. We’ve shot star trails before out at Karekare beach. Although, if you’re too close to the beach on a windy day, there could be some salty sea spray.
