Photo: Sunset Cape Reinga Lighthouse New Zealand

Magical hues fill the sky at sunset over Cape Reinga Lighthouse on the North Island of New Zealand after another beautiful day along the coastline.

Cape Reinga Lighthouse stands high atop the hill looking out over the water where ships can see it and use it as a guide to maneuver the waters off the North Island of New Zealand. This is an area where the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea meet and the currents and tides can become extremely dangerous at times. The lighthouse was erected here in 1941 with a lightkeeper in control but is now automated like a majority of the lighthouses throughout the world.Cape Reinga is one of the prettiest coastline areas around the North Island of New Zealand and is home to some stunning sunsets. Each one varies day to day and you will find many tourists during the summer months sitting along the hills near the lighthouse watching the sunset take over the New Zealand sky.As darkness starts to take over the sky, the sunset still illuminates pink shades through the thickening clouds over the horizon. Above the clouds, the orange and yellow colors brighten the clear patches and then the darker clouds begin to take over the foreground in this picture. ... continue below the picture...
