Ataturk sunset

Some friends and I gathered one evening last week at the Ataturk Memorial above Tarakena Bay last week for a picnic of sorts (if eating chinese takeaways on the grass counts as a picnic). It is a place I found years ago, and have been trying to get people to gather at for a while. The day had been quite windy, and while calming as the evening drew on, there was still a lot of haze in the air. Combined with a layer of cloud extending to but leaving a gap at the horizon, and the angle of the sinking sun, it made for some interesting light play out in Cook Strait.
