I snapped these photos at Wharariki Beach of the Archway Islands and the surrounding area. While taking in the evening light the tide was going out and I kept having to adjust my composition every few minutes. I was really hoping for some spectacular light and clouds around the islands but it was not meant to be. So instead I turned 90 degrees to the right and shot the amazing light show going on in the west. The area I was walking on had been underwater earlier in the day and the receding tides carved out beautiful lines and holes in the sand for an interesting foreground.
