Late Afternoon At Karekare

This picture was taken at Karekare Beach on a late Winters afternoon. The black sand helped me in my quest to capture the reflection of the clouds. This place and the surrounding rain forest has had a turbulent history. Man's quest for Kauri Tree's was unquenchable at one point in time (for building homes and spars for sailing ships). The rain forest that surrounds this spot was almost completely destroyed in the 1800's. Since those dark days the forest has been left to regenerate. Today Karekare is part of the Waitakere Regional Park...
