A very peaceful evening at Marahau, tide out, the extensive estuary revealed, the light a soft pink adding to the warm colours of the sand and grasses - wiwi and glasswort in particular.
Two horseriders, dwarfed by the sweep of sand, rode quietly by.
Another night, a paler light...
This time looking out from Marahau to Tasman Bay. Open sand, more horseriders, and a huge cruise liner looking like a toy in the distance. And still very peaceful.
