hauraki gulf photos
This is the view you get from the ferry that leaves Waiheke more than a dozen times a day. This particular shot was taken at about 10am. The bay is called Matiatia bay and provides sheltered mooring and anchoring for many yachts.
This is the view from the front of the house I used to live at, taken at about 8am on a hazy winter morning. Unfortunately, the photo does not do justice to the view - you'll just have to take my word for it.
This is what you see to the right as you approach Waiheke from Auckland. The area is Church Bay and was once farmland but is now being subdivided for 'lifestyle blocks'.
This picture is taken about 5 minutes out from Waiheke, looking straight back behind the ferry. Again, my camera (and my photography) does not do justice to the beauty of it.
