Auckland Sunset and Night Photography Tour
"Our tour normally starts at Mt Victoria where we can watch the sun setting and get some great images of Auckland bathed in orange light. On our way to Northcote we see some of Devonports finest buildings and beaches. At Northcote we get a great shot of t we also walk up onto a motorway overpass which is a great opportunity to get some light trail photographs. Our drive then takes us around  Auckland's waterfront to see the nightlife and admire Mission Bay with all the shops and the great fountain li another great shot is at Bastion Point overlooking Auckland and out to sea . Then its up through Parnell with its quaint colonial houses and a stop at St Marys church at the top of Parnell. Rated as one of the finest wooden examples of gothic arc"""The beauty of Auckland is truly appreciated at night being reflected in the Waitemata harbor. Auckland really comes to life at night and is easily photographed as it's not very busy and we have access to some great spots. Whether it's a stunning view of the Harbor Bridge Auckland War Memorial Museum or the early colonial houses in Parnell
