Seastar Sunset
Photo By Joshua Cripps

  • Title: Seastar Sunset
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: New Zealand
  • Nearest Area: Motukiekie Beach
  • Nearest Town: Greymouth
  • Brief Directions: From Greymouth, drive about 20 km north and look for the seastacks to the west.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: I've never seen a beach quite as shootable as Motukiekie. It has every element I could possibly want to photograph in a seascape: exotic seastacks, glassily reflective sand, tidal pools, and an abundance of cool critters such as this 12-legged seastar. The only issue with shooting this beach is timing, as there is a huge tidal swing and the beach is essentially inaccessible at high tide. It took me a few visits before the tides and light cooperated, but in the end Motukiekie provided some of the best seascaping I've ever experienced.
  • Gear: Nikon D7000, Tokina 12-24mm, Lee GND filters, Induro Tripod, Acratech Ballhead
