Photo: Cook Strait Sunset Coastal Scenery

The coastal scenery around Cape Palliser on the North Island of New Zealand looks out over the Cook Strait and is especially picturesque at sunset.

Clouds begin to thicken over the Cook Strait, taking away some of the soft yellowish glow adorning the sky at sunset. The sunlight still seems to be able to filter through the clouds in some of the thinner areas. The rugged landscape is silhouetted as the diminishing light begins to fade after another beautiful day shows off the scenery along the coastal waters of the Cook Strait.The Cook Strait is situated between the North and South Islands of New Zealand and at its narrowest point it spans twelve miles in width. On clear days, a sunset can easily reach from one side of the Cook Strait to the other, highlighting both coastal shores. The depth averages about four hundred and twenty feet with steep rocky cliffs on both coastal shores dotted along the way with towns.When travelling the Cook Strait by the ferry service that runs between both New Zealand Islands, you will be amazed at the beauty of the coastal scenery. ... continue below the picture...

... High winds can whip up from the south at times making the water of the Cook Strait fairly lumpy with large swells giving one a different perspective of the coastal region.On this particular day, while enjoying the scenery from Rocky Point in Cape Palliser on the North Island of New Zealand, the dark clouds filling the sky at sunset, could be bringing with them a new weather pattern. But for now, the calm waters of the Cook Strait, the outline of the coastline and the soft sunset colors gives one an idea of how picturesque the region is.Looking out to Cook Strait from Rocky Point at sunset, Cape Palliser, Wairarapa, North Island, New Zealand.
