One of the best locations in the city to shoot the city skyline. Bring your tripod! We'll go for a wander around the marina first if you arrive early enough, then we'll setup on the pier as we watch the sunset and the city lights come on. Auckland city is so beautiful by night. The colourful city lights reflect in the shallow harbour waters and if there's little wind the effect is awesome.
This is also a great location to try your hand at panoramic photography. You don't necessarily need your widest lens here, a regular kit lens is fine - I usually shoot this location with my 24-105mm. A solid tripod is necessary as it can be windy. The usual warm jacket is a must. We won't be getting wet, high and dry on the pier this time :)
