Pohutukawa Coast

The view of Rangitoto Island from Omana Regional Park across the Waitemata Harbour - living up to its translation "Sparkling Waters"

Wikipedia - The name is from the Māori language, with Wai te Mataa referring to obsidian glass. The 'sparkling waters' (a later translation of the meaning) of the harbour were said to glint like the volcanic glass prized by the early arrivals to the harbour.

I should have chopped it back a bit unfortunately it takes too long to open for the impressive original version.
