Dusk at Kaiteriteri near Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand. Browse images of New Zealand for art for an office or prints for the home. Canvas photos.

A cool, calm dusk descends over the bay at Kaiteriteri, near Abel Tasman National Park on the north west coast of New Zealand’s South Island.

The precise origin of the name ‘Kaiteriteri’ from Maori culture is unknown, but all interpretations appear to centre around food and movement.  Perhaps it was the abundance of food in the calm waters that drew people here.  Clear blue water and sheltered bays and islands make for somewhat of a playground for New Zealanders these days, and stunning images of New Zealand for a landscape photographer.

My intention with this photograph is to reflect the contrast of forms…the seemingly immovable landscape with the silky fluid stillness of the waters, and the dynamic morphing of the clouds passing through towards the inland ranges.
