Secrets of O’Neills

O’Neills is tucked away from Bethells beach, accessible only by a long walk along the northern stretches of Bethells. O’Neills is a popular spot for surfers, with consistent surf breaks. We made the trip along with long time friend, Pilot and Photographer – Daniel Talbot who was enjoying a three week trip around the North Island with his partner.

The evening was spent swimming against a spectacular clear sunset, whilst dodging a few jellyfish.

Twilight over O'Neills

Kevin - Silhouette is simply stunning mate. Damn your right-click disable so I can’t view exifs. I managed, but you don’t make it easy 😉

Warren Williams - Cheers Kevin! I’ve just changed the right / left click disable. It’s on by default with the theme I’m running. I use firefox and iexif plugin. Very handy. 🙂

Kevin - Ohh, cheers. Yea, that’s the combo I use too, though I had to view source and find the image before to do it. Much easier now 🙂

Warren Williams - Yeah, that’s how I managed to check also. A slight deterrent, but honest people will pay 😉

Lisa - Loooove the “Twilight” shot, love O’Neills

Sunset is great too

Warren Williams - Thanks Lisa, I knew you would love “Twilight”. Just wait for the next series, when I shoot “Eclipse”

Andrew - Loving the composition of your shots, just wonderful

Muriwai Gannet Colony Sunset

The gannet colony of Muriwai is always a soothing experience, watching the birds effortless glide across the cliffs of Muriwai and Maori Bay. We headed along to the main viewing platform to observe the birds, followed by the rich sunset soon after. As usual, the wind was blowing a gale, keeping the evening interesting.
