I have noticed on TV3, our own Robs photo being displayed.

WTF is wrong with aucklands traffic?

too many cars, not enough roads, too many clowns, not enough sensible driving, too many cars, not enough decent road engineering, too many traffic lights, too many idiot drivers, too little patience, too many overseas drivers with no experience, not enough car parks, too much roadworks at once, too many trucks, not enough public transport, poor infrastructure decisions, too many cars, too few buses, too few photographers, too many badly designed intersections.

I could go on... ;-)a but I think you get the idea. Basicly it's all Auckland Transport's fault!

PART A

So basically where there is a red dot we went to and I look photos. Weather wasnt bad except for first day (Monday) which was windy cold and cloudy. Left at 6am got to Pukenui camp ground about 12. Then off to Spirits bay and the light house for sunset, however I knew it was going to be a rubbish sunset so to dam tired we didnt stick around and went back to camp.

Awake at 5am and sky was full of stars no wind it was time for quick trip to get sunrise at cape. Its was a very quick drive to get there, no camper vans or any traffic ...point to note those oneway bridges come up really fast :)

While I was waiting for sun to rise it rained just back from cape.


Photography points to note:

If I was to go again I would shot from the big hill at the beginning of track. I looked at photos before I went but didnt register where they were taken from.
Like any art if you dont practise you loose your skill set. I give myself 5/10 .........for Cape Reinga

Photos to follow .... have to go into work
