Battling technical issues is not conducive to good writing or photography.
I did something weird which caused me to lose all my e-mail contacts and my archive of messages. Still working on it, so today’s post will be brief.
Pukerua Bay is a place most Wellingtonians pass though on their way into or out of the city and they never really see it. The road down to Pukerua Bay beach is steep and narrow but the visit is worth the effort. As well as splendid views across the water to Kapiti island and the Marlborough sounds, there is a high likelihood of seeing interesting seabirds.
As it happens the seabirds were fairly ordinary on this occasion, so my pictures relate to things observed on the walkway around the coast. First this interesting rock with the passage through it. I like the horse that I can see in it.
A bit further on, this splendid structure of driftwood and rope catches the eye. Who built it, and why? I imagine a scout group, but perhaps just some imaginative local kids are behind the construction.
As the path progresses to the West, the hillside gets steeper and the vegetation on the exposed face looks ever more rugged and interesting.
At the end of the day, back in the Hutt Valley, I was over on the Eastern side, and experimented a little more with that Neutral Density filter to see what I could do with some of the quieter parts of the Waiwhetu Stream
That’s it, now to try to fix my problems.
