The glowing light from the sunset glistens off the rocks around the Kaikoura Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand. Low tide brings out the natural beauty of Kaikoura Peninsula and rock formations rise above the water level as you look across the New Zealand horizon.The swirling clouds above Kaikoura Peninsula are beautiful hues of yellow and orange as sunset nears the close of another sunny day. Not only does nature itself radiate the land of New Zealand but the wildlife that spend their days in the waters are fascinating to watch.A colony of fur seals reside around the Kaikoura Peninsula and sunset is an outstanding time to watch these large creatures flop around on the rocks. Once endangered, these seals have fought very hard to make a comeback and they now leisurely relax day after day on the rocks that extend for five kilometers into the Pacific Ocean.The rugged coastline of the Kaikoura Peninsula makes the South Island of New Zealand a tranquil place to relax and watch a sunset. The sunset on some evenings creates magnificent patterns of colors and images that almost seem more like a picture than the real thing.Sunset on the Kaikoura Peninsula near the Seal Colony, Kaikoura, Canterbury, East Coast, South Island, New Zealand.
