Ohope Beach / Bay of Plenty
The story behind the image.
These were taken on Ohope Beach early in the morning, my wife had gone out for a run along the beach directly next to our camping site. I grabbed the camera to get some early morning shots. I liked the silhouetted figures in the distance walking along the beach in contrast to the the background hills at the end of the beach where the moisture in the air caused the hills to haze. Behind the clouds were building up for a storm but the rest of the sky was still clear blue.
I reconized the running style, so took these as she approached along the beach. I liked the stark contrast of the shadow against the pale background.
These are of the same girl in the first two pictures as she walked along the beach front.
