Top shots: May newsletter winner

Last month we asked for your best sunset or sunrise picture. Mike Gannaway from Palmerston North blew us away with this awesome photo of the sunrise at Castlepoint in the Wairarapa. 

We asked Mike what inspired the picture and he said "We went to the same location on each of the three mornings we were there on our most recent trip, but it wasn’t till the final morning of that it all came together. Getting up at 5am has its rewards!"

Mike became interested in photography during a uni assignment and in 2006 he joined the local Camera Club (The Manawatu Camera Club) and has been going along ever since.

Check out Mike's photography blog to see more of his creations.

If you'd like to enter a photograph you've taken, keep an eye out for our monthly newsletter for instructions on how to get it done and what the theme is.
