Winter is coming.
The shortest day is less than a month away. There are lots of cold dark days to come before the daffodils signify the return of blessed warmth. Meanwhile, here in reality land, Autumn lingers. Our little Japanese maple keeps on giving, and for such a tiny tree, it laid down an impressive carpet.
Yesterday, however, was about getting to know the fixed neutral density filter. And I have a request … I need feedback from you so please click on each image in turn to see it at the largest size possible. Grey overcast weather and a surly harbour provided an opportunity to explore the capabilities of this kind of filter. From Lowry Bay, looking to the west, heavy clouds and wandering crepuscular rays offered possibilities.
My next standpoint was the Western end of Petone Beach at the mouth of the Korokoro stream. The flow of fresh water seems to appeal to seabirds and it’s a nice place to be. Again the clouds, this time the ones over the Eastern hills are a major feature of the view. The stream itself was also of interest.
Finally, looking to the South, we see the pathway to the open sea. On the left, Matiu/Somes Island and on the right, the city with the Arahura approaching Mt Victoria. I would appreciate feedback and critical appraisal of any of these images. Do they work? Do they have a story to tell?
I hope to hear from you
