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

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.
