The image for September 2017’s digital calendar was taken by Peter McIlroy of the Christchurch campus at Parapara in Golden Bay.
Peter McIlroy stumbled across the scene which has become September’s digital calendar during an evening beach walk in January last year.
Our digital calendar, released each month, features the 12 winning and notable entries from the previous year’s Bulletin Board photo competition.
Dr McIlroy, a Clinical Senior Lecturer (Nelson), in the Department of Paediatrics at the University’s Chrsitchurch campus describes his photo as being taken “serendipitously” at Parapara in Golden Bay.
“The full moon had just risen above the horizon and as I was walking along the beach, I came across a family around a bonfire with the moon behind them. I had to handhold the shot at very slow shutter speed, but luckily managed to capture the scene successfully.”
