Rangitoto Island from Kohimarama Beach, Auckland New Zealand
Auckland has an attractive natural harbour. I have viisted twice and both times came away thinking it has not been well developed. The front of the picture shows a small industrial storage area which is not particularly attractive. Having said that it is most defiinitely a place to visit!
Auckland, based around 2 large harbours, is a major city in the north of New Zealand’s North Island. In the centre, the iconic Sky Tower has views of Viaduct Harbour, which is full of superyachts and lined with bars and cafes.
Gorgeous light Sunday morning. Very humid following heavy rain overnight. Rangitoto, a volcanic island in the gulf of Auckland, was covered in clouds beaming from the sunrise. Nice.

Protea is both the botanical name and the English common name of a genus of South African flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes or fynbos. In local tradition, the protea flower represents change and hope. Wikipedia
Proteas first captured the attention of botanists during the Europeans' exploration of South Africa in the 17th Century.

While waiting to get the ferry from Devonport to Auckland, this is the view from the ferry station. I was lucky to get there on a clear night
