[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just before sunrise on Auckland's North Shore.
This is where the America's Cup yacht race will be held in 4 years time.
Team NZ beat USA team Oracle today to win the trophy which is the world's oldest sporting trophy.
It's quite unique as the defenders decide the rules.

The boats this time were twin hull and the boats fly along on foils without the boat touching the water.
Yachting is huge in NZ as we are an island, I am sure most of the world didn't know the race was on, whereas here the whole country was up in the wee small hours watching it.

Check it out on YouTube ⛵️

Hi Jack,
A fantastic mood created with the different range of tones. Slow exposure has shown movement against the stationary rocks.Good camera work and a solid presentation.

Hello Jack

I like the image for the clouds and intense sunset/sunrise. otherwise this image would be useless. you have the gift of using the entire scene to your advantage. Awesome capture of time and beauty. BRAVO
