January 10, 2014 … birds and barns

This edition is written in transit.

Red billed gull

The perch seems strong enough to hold him

I am in Clive, just South of Napier, but as I am always writing about yesterday’s images, that will have to wait until tomorrow. As for yesterday, a fine spell led me out to Pauatahanui. Perhaps I am not displaying the required patience, but I am not seeing as much bird life as I have on other occasions. A seagull on  post is not exciting except that somehow its posture and choice of perch intrigued me.

White-faced heron

A late supper

A white-faced heron is fairly commonplace too, but it was there so I made the shot.

Rural charm

Old farm buildings are always interesting to me

The day was almost saved by this old barn near the Judgeford golf course. The time of day and carefully selected angle to exclude the power pylon lend some touch of credibility.

That’s it 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.
