A music event has taken me off air for a few days, but here are some more of my brother Matthew Atkin’s photos from New Zealand. He doesn’t usually get around to telling me much about them, but I guess it’s pretty obvious that the above are Maori canoes. I gather the tall structures are stern-pieces.

As usual, click on the images for a much bigger view.

The city in the shots below appears to be Auckland – don’t miss the spectacular photo of the America’s Cup contender catamaran on a blowy day in Auckland Harbour. Thanks Matt!

  1. Hi Gavin,

    It looks like your brother is getting around a bit.

    From what I can tell, the waka are in Waitangi, Bay of Islands, north of Auckland. The 2 very different sailing boats are indeed on the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland, but the motor launches appear to be at Taupo marina, on lake Taupo, Central North Island. I'm not sure about the sand yacht, the sign in the background says Rodney, a northern Auckland district, and it looks to be the west coast, the sand is quite golden so it's probably north of Muriwai – getting on towards the south head of the Kaipara Harbour.

    Cheers,

    Andy.
