"Black Sand Dune"

The northwest coast of New Zealand's North Island is notable for its black sand beaches (formed by magnetite). This photograph of Lake Wainamu - just inland from Auckland's Bethell's Beach - at dusk provides a striking contrast: A black sand dune in the foreground, with a lake and tracts of native bush behind.
