About Bethells Beach:

Bethells Beach (Te Henga) is a coastal suburb and community within the Auckland Territorial Authority in the north of North Island , New Zealand.

If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.

I like to challenge myself, to face my fears. It’s definitely not always easy. But that’s how it is.

You might be terrified to your very core, but make sure you do it anyway!

// by the way I’m afraid of heights. So this photo is def out of my comfort zone!

🌄🕶 Sun setting behind Kauwahaia Island is just another of so many hidden gems in our own backyard of Auckland. This is a charming little area located in O’Neill Bay accessed via Te Henga (Bethells Beach). Arrived early to scout locations to shoot the stars that night but as it happens, I had a great deal of fun trying to shoot sunset scenes. I normally avoid the sun in frame as was used to getting horrible flares with my old wide angle lense but happy days now playing around trying to get sun stars, learning to use ND/CPL filter and heart racing moment camera almost went for a swim when attempting the classic sunset long exposure closer to the beach 🤣🦈

Another Auckland freedom day option - the Te Henga Walkway in the Waitakere region. Starting from opposite the Lake Wainui Track at Te Henga, you will have climbed to the top of the cliff above O'Neill Bay . after about an hour. Even better at golden hour approaches. But don't forget its an hour back, no two mention the incentive to stay there for a while first!!⁠

Braved the freezing cold and jumped in a lake today for my first swim of the season and a little shoot with the insanely talented chris_turner_weddings . In love with this location and looking forward to returning in warmer weather. 🌞 Can’t wait time see the rest of these photos! #ainsleyabouttheworld

How I’ve been feeling this past week. 😂⠀

Life seems to be getting me down, but here’s your mid-week reminder: LAUGH AT YOURSELF & ROLL AROUND IN THE SAND SOME MORE.⠀

Things can be shit, your mind can be fuzzy, anxiety can creep in, the moon is full, a cat randomly comes into your room, it’s nearly Christmas, you may have killed some plants, but you know what? We’re still here and we can get up again. We can smash it out the park, all we need to do is shake all that shit off and try again. 💃🏻⠀

Remember your WHY.⠀

You’re here for a reason. ⠀

I’m here today to make you smile 😘⠀

What’s been holding you back? ⠀

👋🏾⛄ Goodbye Winter, I will miss your dark starry skies but bring on Spring and all the amazing things that come with it! 👩🏾‍🌾☘☀🥳

Bit of candyfloss at Kauwahaia Island. This is a part of one of those unique West Auckland moments where light scatters during the sunset time. Had to underexpose quite a bit and slap on ND filters to catch it. Love the way that clouds reflect the light in this time, but not so much when they stick around as I’m trying to shoot the stars 🤣

Another glimpse of what freedom looks like in Auckland. The spectacular view of O'Neil Bay taken from Te Henga Walkway. It was a windy, moody day when I took this pano, and towards the end of spring with the harakeke (native flax) in full bloom. Definitely on my short list post lockdown.⁠
