The magic hour over Miramar

Daylight saving is a great time in New Zealand. On the good days you get this amazing light around 8pm, especially in Wellington as it baths the surrounding hills in this gorgeous golden glow.

The shot above was taken with a 500mm lens from Evans Bay looking towards the cutting at Miramar. The Venture, the boat that was used in the movie King Kong can be seen in the foreground rusting away at Miramar wharf. I think this really adds to the golden glow seen on the hills behind.
