Sunset colors explode across the rugged coastline of the Kaikoura Peninsula near the Seal Colony that reside on the South Island of New Zealand.

As the tide recedes at sunset along the rugged coastline of the Kaikoura Peninsula, rock formations begin to appear which seem to endlessly span across the horizon into the sunset colors. The light emits a unique glow as it sparkles off the rocks and across the surface of the water making it easy to watch the waves crash when they come face to face with the rocks.The sky illuminates the Kaikoura Peninsula with its soft yellow and pink hues which slowly begin to diminsh as the sun gets lower and lower dipping down across the horizon. Areas of the sky are still very bright displaying a yellow glow that highlights the region for miles.When the rugged coastline becomes visible as the water ebbs, fur seals will plop themselves atop the rocks where they can rest their bodies until the tide returns to cover up the coastal shores.

The best time to really enjoy the beauty of the Kaikoura Peninsula is when the tide is low, a sunset adorns the sky and the Fur Seals have become active as they fight among themselves for the perfect rock to relax upon.Sunset on the Kaikoura Peninsula near the Seal Colony, Kaikoura, East Coast, South Island, New Zealand.
