Photoessay: Bethells Beach


Much of Dave Dobbyn's album TWIST was written or inspired by the rugged Bethells Beach (or Te Henga) on Auckland's west coast. Keen photographer and Umm mailing list member Chris Jack took the following photos of the landscape at Bethells.

There are eight photographs to load, so be patient, it might take a few minutes!
