Aramoana. view map

Aramona is indelibly etched in the NZ psyche for the 1990 massacre by David Grey.
The small seaside community of 261 lost 13 souls to Grey's murderous rampage.
The name Aramoana means 'Pathway to the sea.'

dark and brooding scene seems apt for the tragic tale...the forms to the right remind of a row of crosses..

I had not heard of this tragedy until now. Your image is definitely a good one to capture a mood of foreboding. It is also a beautiful image. V
