New Zealand Landscape Collection - Cook Straight/Te Moana-o-Ruakawa

I photographed this image at approximately 5.30a.m, crossing the Cook Strait between our two islands on a clear morning. I was by myself outside on the ferry, and I just wanted to remember how I felt at that moment. It was a moment of possibility. A new day always has infinite potential. Life is also full of potential; at any given moment, we can decide how we are going to move forward. It is simultaneously exciting and scary. That?s why I decided on this picture?dark and moody with the dawn light filtering through. My life is constantly like that, pushing through challenge after challenge and eventually feeling the light on my face and taking a breath.
