One of the largest storms of the year has been battering New Zealand for over a week now. I had planned to drive to Taranaki to shoot magnificent 6 to 9m waves but floods and landslides cut that trip short. In Wellington, a relatively long distance away from the action, winds and swells were strong enough to provide photo material. Here is a recent photo taken at Wellington's Lyall Bay.
