Wharariki Beach is surely one of the most magical beaches Iâ€™ve ever seen. One of the challenges in photography is capturing such a spectacular place with spectacular light, a feat which is easier said than done when your photography trip has a time limit. I was prepared to wait up to 5 days at Wharariki for the right light. So when an amazing sunset exploded on my second night there my serotonin levels skyrocketed and I couldnâ€™t keep myself from laughing like a maniac. This was a highlight among highlights of my 2012 New Zealand photography adventure.
