Little Huia residents

I’m back at Little Huia for a week, starting a new project (more on it later) but it is so great to be back here (its where I did my Artists Residency in 2013) and wake up to the blissful sound of high tide lapping at the shore, outside my front door..
By this afternoon the tide was fully out so I went for a wander with my 400m lens on my 5D and managed to capture some of the locals, going about their business…
