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.


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

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
