Whanake

Whanake, (v) in Te Reo Maori means to move onwards, move upwards. This was taken at Piha, Auckland, New Zealand. Piha Beach is famous for it’s stunning beaches but beauty can be found on a clifftop on the way to the beach from the carpark. This photo was taken during a photo expedition when I was out of a job, so the fact that it was taken on a whim on the way to the beach resonates that “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” It matters not what stage of life we’re in as long as we keep moving and looking for inspiration.
