Roller coasters were never my favourite ride as a kid.
Sensitive inner ear or other issues always made me queasy. Much the same is happening photographically. Some good days, some less so. However, the WYSIWYG portion of this blog’s title is “What You See Is What You Get”
Makara seemed like a good idea yesterday. It is a little bay on the West coast which is sheltered from the South but can be very bleak in a Northerly. The wind was from the North yesterday. The waves were pounding noisily on the rocky beach, but there was not a great deal of interest happening. I tried to catch the backlight on the surf, but the waves were not really impressive enough for that.
A very slow exposure with the aid of a neutral density filter was worth a try to see if I could achieve more atmosphere.
On the way home I swung by the estuary at Hikoikoi. A solitary kingfisher was making the occasional forays from a weed covered log.
A juvenile royal spoonbill walked the length of the beach, obviously on a mission, but having apparently forgotten that it was possible to travel by air.
Tomorrow will be a new day.
