Mesmerising Morning at Cape Reinga

The Top of New Zealand through a new pair of eyes

Ashok Kochhar – Mesmerising Morning-Ashok Kochhar Web

There are very few countries as beautiful as New Zealand.

We all know this place is a sheer heaven on Earth.

The mornings and evening are specially worth witnessing. Every sunrise and sunset tells a story of a lifetime and it seems that Nature is showing its majestic colour palette on the canvas of sky.

People travel thousands of kilometers to witness this amazing spectacular.

I am no exception.

Just by witnessing the play of Sun God, one goes into a trance effortlessly. The energy of these times in the remote areas is almost tangible and spell bounding.

At these times one becomes speechless seeing the winds carrying the mist from one direction to other between the shallow valleys.

Exaggerated Mood

The dramatic formation of the landscape exaggerates its mood. Just a sight for few moments is enough to add a sense of celebration to your day. And if one captures it on camera than you have stored it for eternity.

I feel blessed.

For the last six weeks, I was out to the various locations across the North Island.

We captured sunsets and sunrises across some of the most loved destinations, i.e. Coromandel, Taupo, Rotorua and Cape Reinga.

As a photographer, you intend to leave your place of stay at least 30 minutes before the sun rises. And every morning was unique; seeming as if it was specially crafted for us. The energy, visual appearance made us feel that God left all His jobs to paint these landscapes with mist and fog and allowed winds to blow them to recreate various shapes. I know He was playing His ‘Game of Perfection.’

Game of Destiny

We stayed on the seaside campsite at Cape Reinga. We started habitually half an hour before sunrise. As per the plan, we wanted to reach first point of Ninety-Mile Beach early. But destiny always plays silently. We might have travelled eight kilometers from the camping site; the beautiful visual left us spellbound. At a far distance, the drama of fog against beautiful waste landscape started unveiling itself.

We captured the evolving scenario on our cameras for more than an hour without talking at all.

Nature forced us to witness its wonders and through us to be seen by as many as possible. Surprisingly, on a few mornings, we went off track, and discovered the hidden treasures of Nature, waiting to be explored.

The images here were presented to me by the Almighty.

I call it ‘An Eternal Experience.’
