The Lighthouse, Cape Reinga, New Zealand

Cape Reinga, official name Cape Reinga/Te Rerenga Wairua, is the northwesternmost tip of the Aupouri Peninsula, at the northern end of the North Island of New Zealand.

The 'Te Rerenga Wairua' component of the name in Māori language means the leaping-off place of spirits. The 'Reinga' part of the name is the Māori language word meaning the underworld. Both refer to the Māori belief that the cape is the point where the spirits of the dead enter the underworld.

A friend organised to meet early on a Saturday morning to shoot some pictures are Campbells Bay, Auckland New Zealand. It did'nt turn out to be a spectacular sunrise, but here are a few pictures I got.
Im not sure if the first picture is too dark, but I like it like that for some reason .....
