Radiant Transformation 2

This post continues my previous post  Radiant Transformation.

Stunning sunset at St Clair in Dunedin. Nigel was privileged to witness this fiery spectacle sometime after 9pm. He was walking in the opposite direction down the beach when the deepening glow enticed him to turn around. He had his Olympus digital camera and took these three photos among others, which I’ll share over multiple posts.

Nigel was in Dunedin for work and took these photos on Thursday evening, 31 January 2019. He is a Landscape Architect and Director of Growplan Ltd providing professional landscape design services throughout Southland and Otago (and further).

      1. I had to laugh at myself, because I always think of those huge leaves first, from which Nigel looked out! In it my children would have played wonderfully: D

  1. Love the angle of the middle photo – it makes me feel as if I’m standing in the sea somewhere warm. If I stare at it long enough, I’ll be able to imagine that I’m enjoying a summer holiday…… 🙂

    1. Nigel was standing in the water when he took the photo and he told me the water was warm. He tells me the water around NZ is currently 1.5 degrees warmer than the long-term average.


      1. Oooh, nice! I’d have loved to go for a walk/paddle there! It will be a while before it’s warm enough at out beaches! And with that sunset, it would have felt like Heaven!

        1. I asked him if it felt like heaven.. he’s like “yeah,,ah” in uncertain tone! And then added that his feet felt very firmly on the ground every time a wave came in 🙂 He said it was very beautiful, in the top 5 of sunsets he’s seen! He reminded me of one orange sunset we’d both enjoyed at Torchello, Venice years ago which was totally stunning. Sunsets create beautiful memories!
