Wind is the biggest hazard for my preferred styles of photography.
A full-blown storm is fine. Flat calm is much better. However, those days when the wind is there, but in the 15 to 40 km/h range, are just unproductive for anything that involves the sea. It is hard to do much with water that is merely choppy.
A kite surfer can sometimes rescue that situation. Yesterday I was at Seatoun near the Wahine memorial park when a solitary kite surfer shot past at a much higher speed than I could legally do in the car. He turned and came back.
As far as I can tell, he was the only person in Wellington who was enjoying the wind.
With nothing else “in the can”, I was a bit desperate as the day was coming to an end, and grabbed this shot of a threatening Western sky from my back door.
See you tomorrow.
