Location: South Island, New Zealand
Last year, my husband and I spent a month in New Zealand, traveling all over the South Island. One of the most scenic coastal areas we visited was a rugged section of the southeast coast known as the Catlins. This photo, taken from a spot called the Florence Hill Lookout, shows Tautuku Beach. The spit of land at the far end of the bay is the Tautuku peninsula, which was home to a whaling station in the 19th century.
The sky was overcast for most of the several days we spent in this area, and it drizzled off and on. Although the rain and lack of direct sun made it a bit chilly, the cloudy sky was anything but dreary.
