Photographer’s Notes:
We had visited this beach earlier in the day and saw a few seals along the beach. After we left I decided that I wanted to get back to the beach for sunset to get a photo but also to scope out if it would be possible at any time of the year to photograph the sun through one of the arches… I took a shot before sunset then I went over to a pool which had been left by the outgoing tide. Some baby seals were playing in the pool and I sat my tripod on the beach and watch them for a while. One baby seal came out the pool to see what my tripod and test how hard it was with its teeth. I was lucky enough to have my camera in my hand and managed to take a shot of the seal as it “attacked” my tripod. After about an hour I left to get my dusk shot before I lost the light.

The picture of the seal pup with my tripod can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/DavidRowleyPhotography

    Dit panorama is genomen in New Zealand, Polynesia

    Dit is een overzicht van Polynesia

    Forever has always existed.

    In the mythology of Oceanic peoples, it's been there along with Darkness and the Sea.

    The Earth came from the efforts of Old Spider, who soared over the endless sea and found a giant clam. She opened it and crawled inside, finding a snail there to share the space with her. She set the snail in the west and made it into the Moon to shed some light into the darkness. Together they raised up the top of the clam shell to make the sky, pushing it until it was wide open.

    Then they pushed the bottom half of the clam shell in the other direction to make the ground. The earth was called Papa and the sky Ranga. These are the two first beings who created all the flowers, plants, trees and animals on the islands, and fish in the sea.

    They celebrated all their open space by making as many beautiful creatures as they could imagine, but they still remained separated by the work of the original Old Spider. Each night, Ranga weeps for his beloved Papa earth, and this is where the morning dew comes from.

    Polynesia means "many islands" and when you see these pictures, you will want to visit all of them. To make it simple, the islands sit in a triangle described by connecting Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island.

    There are over a thousand of these islands of surfer's paradise in the central and south Pacific Ocean. It's stunning. Look at the color of the water here! And the sunset... these speak for themselves. Could you be happy in this little house? How about some reef diving inside a lagoon?

    Put this one in full screen and don't come back. Love, 360.
