Today's Beautiful New Zealand Picture | Kohaihai River, Heaphy Track

Posted by Todd Sisson

 Sometimes you get to paint a picture in your mind and a photograph forms before you that meets your vision with almost uncanny exactitude.

Other times your vision is left as a dimming, smouldering ember in the recesses of your sub-conscious and you are left hoping that one day you will receive the opportunity to fan the flames of creativity once more - and vision will become 'reality'.

Other times nature presents you with an opportunity for a better image than you could ever have pre-visualised.  

For me this is one of those photos - fond memories of family time spent on a winter beach and creative collisions abound in this scene.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Cheers - Todd

Pressure waves, Kohaihai River West Coast This image was made while my little boy Jack and I were waiting on the wild and windy Kohaihai beach - in search of sunset splendour. The sunset never happened but for a brief couple of minutes these rythmic, serpentine pressure-waves formed as the swift waters of the Kohaihai river met the Tasman Sea.
