For the New Millennium

"Ecliptic" Napier June 2008. Ajr.
This photo looks a bit dull - yesterday's light was queer and temperamental - but I loved this sculpture "Ecliptic" by Napier designer, David Trubridge. It was placed on the Napier beachfront by the Napier City Council to mark the beginning of the Third Millennium. To find the point where the sun rose at the start of the new millennium, you follow the line from the rock in front (it looked ugly so I cropped it out), through the centre of the arch to the horizon. That's Cape Kidnappers you can see way off in the distance by the way.
