My conscience phoned up and told me to go for a walk.
You need the exercise, she said. So the riverbank walkway seemed appealing, and off I went from a place just near the Melling Bridge. The walkway is a pleasant one, and the river banks are lined with shrubs and grasses.
The railway line to Upper Hutt and the Wairarapa crosses the river at Moera and since it was getting towards commute time, there were plenty of trains passing. I tried for a motion shot with panning, but confess to having experimented on this image with some recently acquired software.
Having reached the Waione Street Bridge at the estuary, I crossed and came up the Eastern side. Just south of the rail bridge I encountered a flock of Canada geese. I approached slowly and though wary they tolerated me. I got low to capture this picture of the flock, though you can see that they are edging away from me.
I was about to get up again, when another pedestrian came striding towards them blissfully unconcerned, and they took flight.
That’s all for now.
