Sure enough found a shot from same location as yesterdays post (Piha Gap) that I hadn’t yet processed. Looking forward to finally getting an updated shot or two here this winter. This was taken 6th July 2019 at 3.19am as the core sets to the west as an arch. This time will take beach chair and plenty snacks, maybe just camp on the beach 😆 good to reflect on the older shots, have learnt so many techniques now to improve detail and reduce noise, as well as obtain better focus. Hopefully will finally get a nice cloudless night and capture a good clean shot here after 2 years.

When it feels like life just won’t stop testing you, all it means is that you’re being prepared to receive what you’ve been manifesting ✨

Been experiencing setback after setback.. it’s not all over yet but I know this is just temporary. Greater things are on the way 🙌🏼

Hiked up Kitekite to be on the edge falls 💚

Some lovely tones and a little moon at Piha, taken just a couple of weeks ago. I managed to time my brief visit to see a good friend between Auckland’s two lockdowns. Thankfully she is very patient with me as I clamber over hillsides. ❤️

Been to this spot in Aucklands Piha Beach across many different times of the day and it never disappoints. This is one of my all-time favourites, capturing a bit of the glow from sundown with unique lighting, cloud movements, and in the single shot stars peeking through.

Been a while since I've taken a sunset photo, maybe I should get back into it?

Piha, New Zealand 2019 - Well it’s been a minute! Hope everyone is keeping well. I’ve been a little quiet since my laptop dying on me last week as I haven’t been able to go through or edit any new images.
So for now here’s an oldy but a goldy from the archives of one of my favourite beaches from my time in New Zealand, Piha 2019.

Semifinal - NZ Bodyboarding Association this weekend! Stoked that after all the rounds I made to the semi in the middle of high level athletes. Such a great time, amazing people and good waves. Thank you all for the energy and thank my brother purepixelnz that not just supported me but also got the 3rd place at the Masters, so proud!

raphasurfnz & kevinsedit_ thanks for the energy in the water boys, made the difference 🤘🏽

When I feel blue, I will go to those beaches where I can find something can express my feelings.

PARADISE IN AUCKLAND FOUND 💙

This photo was taken last week at Kitekite falls in Piha. Just under a 1 hour drive from #Auckland and a 30 minute walk to the top!

If you go & want to avoid crowds, I’d recommend going in the morning!! The hike up was pretty easy & suitable for children 👌🏽

Hey team,
Hope you’ve had a fabulous day!!!

If your new around here let me take a minute to introduce myself.

My name’s Kate and I live in Queenstown, NZ with my daughter Romy (6) and husband Rob.

I absolutely love to pack the fam in the car and hit the road for adventure time.
For example this weekend we are staying in a hut with no electricity but the prettiest view you could ever imagine.

I love bubble tea, swimming in the ocean & historical fiction.

I love meeting new people and hearing all about thier lives.

Green tea ice cream is my fav and I currently have flight credit to Japan thanks to c19 so that’s where I’ll be going as soon as I get the chance.

My favourite sniff is lavender and if your passing through wanaka I highly suggest stopping at the lavender farm for some Lavender sleep balm 💤

Thanks for stopping by xxx

About Piha Beach:

Want a guided tour? - Scroll down to see what is on offer!

Piha is the most popular surf beach in New Zealand. Situated on the west coast of the North Island, 40 km from the town of Auckland, this black sandy beach has a reputation for an impressive surf that rolls across the Tasman Sea. When the Uncle Toby Iron Man contest was held at Piha in 1997, the canoes were snapped in two, and they never came again.

It could be moody, misty and enigmatic, wild, damp and wind-swept. Power goes off, phone lines go down, often the road in (and out) is blocked. It's not for the faint-hearted to live here.

Piha was the birthplace of the Malibu boarding school in New Zealand, launched by two Californian lifeguards in 1956. The first surf boat race to be held in New Zealand was at Piha in the 1930s.

Piha has rips and currents, and she's really unforgiving, so it's essential to swim only in areas patrolled by surf clubs. Fisherman deaths out of the rocks on a fairly regular basis, so check with the clubs before you head out.

Piha is not just surfing and sand. The landscape is spectacular and inspiring, with the towering cliffs and the magnificent Lion Rock standing guard over the sand. The beach is assisted by the Waitakere Ranges, a protected parkland in the subtropical forest, accessible via various bush tracks.

Piha has a beach side community composed of owners and residents of the river. Lifestyle is comfortable and easy, but there are all the essential facilities for a good life.
