Dear editor,

I visited the Cooks and had a wonderful time. It certainly left a lifelong impression on me and hope to visit again soon.

 

I find myself reading the Cook Island News online almost every day to keep abreast of news and events on the Cooks.

I saw your Summer in Paradise photo contest and am sending a submission. On the last 
evening I was there I was making my way to the airport and was feeling a bit sad to be leaving. I wanted to take in all that I saw as a final memory or a wonderful trip. I came across the turnout before the sea wall around Black Rock Beach just as the sun was setting and quickly unpacked my camera and tripod hoping to get one last sunset picture. 

Time was short, and I snapped several shots. I really didn’t know until I got home if the images came out or not.

Attached is one of the images, indeed it is my favorite and have it as my computer desktop image.

Thanks again!

Michael Austin
