October 14, 2013 … a very flat day

Yesterday was a total non-event.

The main redeeming feature was being able to visit our grandson Cooper, whose seventh birthday was on Saturday (we were travelling). He is a very nice young man and one of my favourite people.

In the afternoon, in dismal conditions, I went looking for bird life. I found a spur-winged plover who didn’t seem overwhelmed to see me.

Apart from that, there was some diatomaceous foam on the beach at Pauatahanui. It’s not every day I can use “diatomaceous” in a sentence.IMG_8690

 

And then the sun set. Today looks even worse.

Tomorrow, we begin our journey to Rotorua so things could get a little out of schedule for the next few days.

About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.

    Splendid portrait, Brian. It looks like you may be travelling north with the weather but it will probably out run you.
