Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

Cook Strait

– 3 photographs –

… lies between the North and South Islands of New Zealand. It connects the Tasman Sea on the northwest with the South Pacific Ocean on the southeast, and runs next to the capital city, Wellington. It is 22 kilometres (14 mi) wide at its narrowest point, and is considered one of the most dangerous and unpredictable waters in the world. (see Wikipedia)

  1. It looks like the seas were calm the day you crossed…..I wish that I had been so lucky. New Zealand never disappoints for landscapes or seascapes. Great photos!

    • Hi Melissa, the sea was calm. If it could be “calm” at Cook Strait. It was quiet warm that day and we sat the whole time outside where we could overlook the ship and the scenery. Alexandra listened to “ONE” of U2 in the middle of the passage. She still is flashed when she listens to the song in the radio. I am happy that you like my photos. Have a nice weekend. Reinhold

    • It was warm that day. But you could feel the strength of nature. Two oceans coming together in that small passage. The passage was awesome but also sad. Because we were leaving “our” South Island. But the Northern part of NZ healed all that very quickly. Thanks Francis.
