I live on the Tamaki River (approx 180 deg water view), in Auckland New Zealand. Most of my sunrises are taken over the back fence.
About three years ago I bought a Fujifilm 2400 2.1mp (ideal point and shoot) for my Linedancing site. I soon found that it was very useful for other types of photography. I have just upgraded to a Canon 350 D and just getting to grips with it.
