For me it's where the sea meets the land. On the north east coast of New Zealand the water is warm clear blue green, and full of wild life. The coast varies from rugged rocks and surf, to horseshoe shaped sandy bays. I spent many summers staying at our small wooden bach that my Grandfather and Father built about 30yrs ago. All day on the beach and in the water, not even wanting to stop for lunch. Dad built a little sailing boat with me passing the tools. Anything you could do on or under the water - we did it. As friends we saw each other for 6 weeks each summer and the weekends, but we knew each other better than anyone else.
As a consequence, the sea still draws me. And if I'm away from it for too long, miss it. Not afraid of it but respect it, and I love to capture it with some of my photography.
