January 23, 2014 … evening mists

Grey misty evening light has its possibilities.

Seaview marina again

The same marina as yesterday but in a different mood

Given that I missed all the opportunities during the day, I had to take the chance. Rain was still falling, though softly. There was just the barest of wind so water was relatively calm, and I helped that along with the aid of the neutral density filter and a long exposure (2.5 seconds). The Western hills of Newlands and Horokiwi have disappeared in the mist, but the marina seems calm.

Seaview Marina moorings

Green water

On another pontoon, looking south to the less expensive moorings you can see that the workboat with the blue trim has a wind turbine to generate electricity. It is telling me that the breeze is much more vigorous than I thought as the blades are whirling around.  I liked the green colour in the water.


The wind was obviously not strong enough to move the clouds along

My last shot from yesterday brings up an old favourite … the receding planes of a misty landscape. This was taken from Sorrento Bay look Southwards past Lowry Bay, York Bay, Mahina bay, Sunshine bay to Days Bay and Eastbourne.

And the grey fades to black.



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.
