Hi Tony,

There seems to be no end to the beauty of your country! A wonderful shot as you approached the island. The green water, the marvelous coastline and the blue blue sky with the big white clouds are all breathtaking. Another wonderful seascape.


merhaba Tony, sevgili dostum
You had a nice ferry trip amaong green islands. You notes it was just before harbour, but I see that humans dont disturb this beautiful area, unlike many places all over the world. Green sea, bule sky and green pastureland look wonderful. We can see this beautiful landscape with your great post. Thanks for showing us. best wishes, my friend

Neat Tony...even your normal way of life seems like a vacation to me, but then you add certain words and voila the area changes just a bit...travel is fun...If I come back as another person I would want it to be as James....he travels all over the globe...an amazing man who may just have to write NZ on his next agenda. It would be fun to compare...Very nice sharing Tony.

Merhaba Tony,
What a nice piece of nature and not a bit spoiled by man. You mention a harbour, but surely it must be a secret one! Your viewpoint blends greens, blues and whites perfectly, resulting in a splendid natural composition. Thank you for sharing this nice scene with us my friend.

Hi Tony,
this place looks very lovely and all the more to me because it won't be long and it will be cold here where I live once again.I have never seen water in the ocean or sea that colour,but I have in the mountain lakes here in Alberta where I live.I like how so many of your landscapes are just so inviting they have a way of making a person want to be right where you were when you took the shots.That is a mark of high quality,Tony as this photo exhibits so very well.The colours are eye candy and the gentle yet rugged looking landscape tells a tale in of itself...a land tamed but not destroyed by the hand of man.A clear and and nicely detailed photo and thank you kind Sir for uploading it.

Hi Tony,
Great shot. Excellent sharp details with well exposed colours. Good lighting and well composed. Very well done and TFS.

Hello Tony
beautiful landscape. the colors and the shadings of green well are dosed to give depth to the photo. beautiful the contrast with the sky and the sea

Hi Tony,

What really struck me in this picture is the green color of the sea. Nothing wrong with that, but it fell right on, while the air is very blue, and you would expect that the sea is blue. POV, DOF and BG are oké. The shadow of the trees and rocks come to light until expression beautiful green hills.

Well done. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi Tony,

I like the simplicity of elevation view but you image still stuning with beautiful colour and detail sharpness of landscape elements. Trees on the water edge look interesting. Realy convincing.TFS.


Hi Tony,
A nice capture of this beautiful landscape. Very nicely composed with very good view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Un joli paysage plein de calme et de sérénité.
Bonne journée.

Hi Tony!

Your picture this time stands out due to the delightful colours and the superb lighting. Probably the spot is just a jewel, but you put it very well on stage. Must be great to walk along this shore...

Kind regards

Hello Tony,
A wonderful view of Waiheke Island with its attractive landscape contrasting nicely with the turqoise sea. It looks like it is an exclusive place to live on, if the distant houses are anything to go by.
