Warren decided to get up again at the crack of dawn to witness a beautiful sunrise from the secret spot of Matai Bay. Not without an unexpected dip in the morning at 6am! Whilst shooting the dramatic sky and moving the tripod and camera around for various compositions, one of his filters – the ND 1.2 (4 stop) filter, decided to slip out, bounce down the rock face, and splash into water, 1.5 metres deep. There was no way to retrieve it, without getting right in the water. Being fully dressed, and with no swim shorts and towel nearby, he had to do a quick skinny dip. Being as dedicated as he is to photography, and the experience of using the 10 second timer, he decided to use a timed shot, to capture the funny moment he had to dive into the water to retrieve… Later in the day both Warren & Katrina decided it was best to hire some proper snorkel gear, and go observe the numerous fish in the underwater world.
The following morning we took a walk along the beach and ended up doing a little tree climbing… Onwards to Kaikohe!
