"Sea ~ Surf ~ Snow"

Time out relazing on the expansive shingle beach of Kaikoura township, North Canterbury.

It was a stunning beautiful mid-winter's day when I took this photo. The beauty of the lapping waves was matched by the awesome snow-covered Kaikoura mountain range which overlooks this part of the South Island. TFR.

WOW! This is an awesome picture. Very beautiful scenery and the pov and colors are excellent!! TFS and have a great day!

Oh! Is that the whale-watching centre there?

We went to Kaikoura 5 or 6 years ago for a couple of days, would love to go back with the kids. Wonderful scenery - you have composed this very well, gives a great impression of the vast openness of the area. Lovely shot that brings back great memories.

Greetings from Netherland,


This is a wonderful capture with amazing composition. I really like the mountains in the BG. The colors are vivid. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words regaring my Sepak takraw photo. I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

Dear Martyn,
a wonderful view of winter landscape!
the contrast between white and blue is excellent. the blue is in the sky and the sea, and the white is in the snow and waves, these combination is beautiful.
thank you,

Hi Martyn,
I've always liked Kaikoura,and thought I might like to live there,but I think it would be quite a bit colder there than it is here. (I was out surfing today and it wasn't too bad ... great view of Mt Cook too)

Kaikoura - I love seeing these snowy peaks so close to the beach.
Super composition Martyn, and that blue haze lets us know how good the weather was then

I recall Janice showing us something similar Martyn. I love the contrasts between that volcanic beach, the snow and the blue of the sky, excellent foreground detail.
