With the wind gusting in excess of 100 km/h I expected interesting surf on the South coast.
Alas, all I found was flattened waves, though there was sign of watery disturbances too far offshore to be useful. Coming back up the Coast road towards Wainuiomata, I noticed a derelict house I had previously overlooked. This shot was taken through the open window of my car as a way of avoiding the unpleasantness outside.
From the top of the Wainuiomata hill there was nothing special to see, but I have done the best I could with the industrial area at the foot of the hill.
In the marina at Seaview, I expected some shelter, and to an extent it was there. However, all the masts were rocking in accordance with the formula that governs any pendulum. I hoped to capture the movement with a slow exposure, but even at 1/3 second, the pendulum rates of the boats was so slow that the best I managed was some mild blurring of the taller masts.
I expect better things tomorrow
