Ohope Beach and the Bay of Plenty: sunrise and sunset

One of the great joys of visiting family in Ohope is watching the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the ever changing morning and evening light.  Ohope Beach lies on the eastern end of the Bay of Plenty, an eighty mile curve of sea three hours southeast of Auckland.  Because of its north-south location, this ocean expanse, unlike the Oregon coast,  receives both sunrises and sunsets.  The light is unique.  Enjoy these pictures.
