Lady on the rock...

The lady on the Rock statue sits at entrance to Whakatane harbour on the rugged East Coast of the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.

The bronze statue erected in 1965 commemorates the bravery of local Maori Wairaka and the daughter of Toroa, captain-navigator of the Mataatua waka.

On this evening, the sky turned an almost unreal purple colour so I knew I needed to grab a shot before it got too dark to walk back to town…
