The city of Dunedin is surrounded with spectacular coastal scenery. Local landscapers are spoiled for choice. Just a few clicks south of the city, Tunnel Beach is, perhaps, the best of them all. This is a primal place which exudes raw beauty. The pounding Pacific colli...

Any local landscaper worth his salt has shot this derelict breakwater ... or was it once a jetty? Only 5 minutes walk along the shoreline, these wooden posts will provide any photographer with numerous creative possibilities... and wet feet.

We reached this remote spot on schedule, as the afternoon sun broke through rain clouds, painting the farmland gold. I'd been here many times before to photograph the lighthouse, and watch the Yellow-Eyed Penguins waddle ashore. And I had 'seen' how the lonely rural ro...
