December 5, 2013 … posting ad nauseam

This post is a day late.

On the other hand, the photographs from the day concerned were deeply disappointing anyway. I was ready to post yesterday but succumbed to a passing bout of feeling unwell, hence the unsubtle heading. Back to normal now, and it is time to catch up. Photographically, I kept the faith, but only by virtue of taking some night shots after the conclusion of my first camera club committee meeting in the chair.

Day's Bay Wharf

At night, in the rain

It was dark, as nights tend to be, no visible moon, and there was steady fine drizzle. My first stop was at Day’s Bay wharf (the meeting had been in Eastbourne). The drizzle was soft but intense so no lights from across the harbour, and even the lights on the Day’s bay wharf are muted.

From there, it was a cautious drive around the bays, trying to see possible shots, and at the same time not to miss any of the sharp corners on the dark slippery road and thereby end up in the sea.

Nothing much revealed itself by the time I reached Seaview, but the water was very still. Perhaps the marina might yield something new.

Seaview marina

I am a poor sailor so my fascination with the sea is a bit odd

I chose a different viewpoint than previously, but the drizzle floated onto my lens, and I got some interesting flare.

Though I have done them before, I love still nights at the marina

I hope for a better set from Thursday’s shooting.


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.
