Our favourite 10 photos from the Autumn Gallery this year, in no particular order…

Waterspout off Mount Maunganui
May 20th: Taken from Papamoa beach with Mayor Island in the background, this waterspout was clearly visible from Mount Maunganui to Pukehina Beach. It was about 2km offshore and visible for around 20 minutes. Smaller waterspouts also seemed to be trying to form. Uploaded by: Neill Ellis

Moon Rise
I was at the Mt Maunganui main beach last night and saw this amazing full moon rising above Motiti island, luckily I had the camera on me and I snapped this. Uploaded by: Taylor Shea, 9th May, 2009

Autumnal Hues
After a warm sunny day exploring Christchurch, we ended up in the Botanical Gardens late afternoon. The low sun offered stunning views of the golds and reds of the turning leaves. Uploaded by: Jonathan Weatherall Date: 28th Apr, 2009
