December 13, 2013 … back white and grey

Leaving it late in the day when there is nothing captured is a risk.

White fronted terns

Getting into line

Fortunately, some feathered friends turned up tp lighten the mood last evening. A small flock of white-fronted terns were roosting on some rocks in Lowry Bay. The weather was grey, verging on drizzle, and though an occasional bird flew off to grab a bed-time snack from the sea, they were mostly static.

Clearing from the South

Grey sky grey sea

On Petone Esplanade, the view out through the heads was intriguing with a patch of bright sun on the Pencarrow Heads as the interisland ferry Santa Regina sailed in from Picton. It was still damp in Petone but clearing from the South.

Summer?

I hope for better weather than this in the weeks ahead

Further round there was a moody overcast in Wellington that I liked.

That’s all for today.

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.
