First to see the sun each day

Here on the east coast of New Zealand, we're the first to see the rising sun of a new day, and it's a beaut. Paul snapped these outside our apartment.

About those trees, those are what pine trees look like in NZ. At first I mistook one for a cell phone tower as they tend to be very sparse, perfectly symetrical and all the needles stand straight up.

The "beach" in the photo at isn't really a beach at all. It's made of smooth black stones that get progressively smaller as you get closer to the water. The sandy beach was lost in the 1931 earthquake and replaced by the stones, which are expected to turn back into sand in another couple hundred years or so.
