A warming sight.  Looking across Island Bay and behind Taputeranga, the golden evening glow of sunset lights up the cloudy sky and the lower hills of the Orongorongos - the southern end of the Rimutaka Range. 

The hills face towards the setting sun.  The colour on the hills intensifies as the sun goes down but the island Taputeranga, in the shade of a headland, misses out on the gilding.
