The landscape of Gillespies Beach near Fox Glacier in Westland, New Zealand, is silhouetted during the sunset hours as the sun fills the sky with a bright yellow glow. The water twinkles in the lighting as the waves softly break along the beach bringing a peaceful and calming aura to the entire area.
There are plenty of serene areas along Gillespies Beach to watch a beautiful sunset illuminate the region as the coastline runs for miles.
