Auckland, seen from the West

Auckland, seen from the West

These are the shortest days for us, the sun setting about 5:12 p.m. On my way home along Scenic Drive, I briefly stopped at the Arataki Visitor Centre, to watch the shadows of the Waitakere Ranges encroaching onto the city, as the sun set behind my back. From the upstairs entrance to the centre, the Sky Tower and volcanic Rangitoto Island are nicely aligned.
