Weekly Photo Mojo: Auckland City from a Ferry in Freemans Bay

Auckland, New Zealand every year celebrates itself in all it’s glory on the Monday that falls closest on January 29th. Known as the City of Sails, the city is surrounded by emerald waters and countless bays. While heading to the wine island of Weiheke, I took this photo from the ferry looking out over Freemans Bay at Auckland.

The city holds New Zealand’s largest density of people at 1 million+ and is actually one-third of the entire country’s population of 4 million. Piercing the fluffy white clouds is Auckland’s famous Skytower, 1076ft tall (328 Meters) and is the tallest building in all the Southern Hemisphere.

    Great shot! Loved capturing shots of Auckland from different vantage points. a favorite probably not far from where you took this in Devonport.

      Cheers Aaron, I would always try to capture it from everywhere: below, above on Mt. Eden, and from the water.

    Nice one, Ryan! I love Waiheke, I just zipped over there this weekend for an afternoon, they have the Headlands Sculpture on the Gulf festival on at the moment. I stood myself at the back of the boat as we set off, a bachelor party placed themselves right in front of me and my camera haha.
