Muriwai: Windswept

Muriwai: Windswept

Muriwai lies on Auckland’s West Coast, buffeted by the prevailing westerly winds, pounded by the Tasman Sea, and the dunescape is ever-changing. Over several decades, the dunes have receded by up to a meter per year. The picture above was taken not far to the north of the entrance to the beach, and the ti trees tell the story: shaped by the wind, all but uprooted by the waves, just hanging in there.

    This is a wonderful photograph. I am always fascinated by windswept shapes … in my case usually in the more exposed heaths in the mountains rather than by the sea. Mmm maybe that is where I will go this weekend for my next blog trip.
