Greyness has its compensations, whether in the hair or the sky.
Our spell of un-summer continues, and the day was mostly grey. At least the wind has abated. My lovely granddaughter Maggie had her ninth birthday yesterday, and we popped round to visit her. She is saving madly to buy an iPad Mini … they are $450 locally … and she is almost there. I found this poppy in her mother’s garden. As it tells you, there was still some drizzle about.
Calm water always appeals to me so I went around the Miramar peninsula and saw Kaitaki negotiating the entrance to the harbour against a dark and threatening sky. The upper and lower lights at Pencarrow are visible, and the Baring Head light can be seen on the headland above the rearmost lifeboat.
In Lyall Bay, looking South East towards Baring Head in the distance, I used the ND filter to slow things down and quite like the effect.
To the North East, the cloud formations were very attractive and I zoomed out as far as possible and again used a slow exposure. This image is a rarity since monochrome is not my natural habitat, nor is it likely to become so. I took it in colour and converted it to black and white using Lightroom.
That’s enough for now.
