Trip to Piha Beach

The day we went to Piha Beach was forecast to rain, but we packed a lunch and a thermos and went. It takes half an hour to get there.

Here are a series of photos I took and hopefully you can see them and I would like to hear what you think of them.

It was either sunny or cloudy and there was no rain that day.

#1 North end of Piha Beach

Not often shown but a legitimate part of the beach. At the most northern end it has no lifeguards and they recommend you don't swim there.

#4 View of Piha beach from the road

Just before you get to the beach you drive down a very windy road with sheer drops in some places. I stopped to take a photo of the view here. 

A long time ago, it was a gravel road and there was a huge rock over hanging the road. Now it is a modern road tar sealed and that over hanging rock is removed. They put some dynamite on it and it's now gone.

A closer look at the detail of Lion Rock at Piha. Lion Rock is a bit of an icon and gets put on every postcard, etc...

I could see some people would have a bach here and have that on their wall, which shows the level of imagination they have.

It is off course a standard land mark.

#8 Abstract view of Lion Rock from a certain angle of the beach

I am looking towards the north and have the north head of Piha in the distance. It makes a more abstracted photograph. How many of the conventional people will have that on their wall?
