Lawrence Leitch Matiatia Masterpiece Tue, 07 Nov 2017
Just when we thought 'it couldn't get any better' acclaimed New Zealand landscapist, Lawrence Leitch delivers a long- awaited Waiheke masterpiece.
From an elevated vantage point, fringed with pohutakawa trees we survey the sheltered haven of Matiatia Bay, for decades a favourite destination of yachties and day trippers alike. As the day draws to a close we stand atop bush clad hills, crisscrossed with the familiar walking tracks of the annual 'Art Walk'.
To the right lies Motuihe Island, with Motutapu on the left. The viewer is invited to cross the sparkling waters of the Waitemata to Auckland, New Zealand's City of Sails and a distant horizon crowned by her landmark Sky Tower.
