Behind the print: exploring the Pouto Peninsula
Nestled along New Zealand's north west coast is one of its best kept secrets, Pouto Peninsula. Mysterious, wild, untamed coastline and sand dunes as far as the eye can see is home to the hidden stories of ancient Maori and the burial ground of 150 shipwrecks.
The two and half hour drive from Snells Beach to Pouto Peninsula was totally worth it. The landscape was unlike anything I'd seen in New Zealand before. Rolling, golden sand dunes stretched on and on, alongside the bluest water.
The beach was nearly empty, apart from the odd fishermen and a couple riding quad bikes along the dunes. One of my favourite shots from the day were the aerial views of the lighthouse and coastline which captures the vastness and remoteness of the landscape.
