Waipapa Point Lighthouse
Late afternoon at the beach alongside the Waipapa Point Lighthouse in the Catlins NZ. There's a couple of sealions on the beach with the southern ocean behind, looking south.
A Hard Life
At Waipapa Point the southern winds off the ocean are so relentless that these old macrocarpa trees have only been able to grow sideways over the years. In fact I don't remember seeing any truly upright trees around there.
