Perilously close to a default yesterday.
A chill tempestuous wind, combined with a touch of laziness and some camera club business left a very small window in the day. My tripod got set up in the front garden for a reprise of last year’s “last maple leaf of summer”. It was a fairly battered looking specimen but the light was interesting.
A little way up the path, a miniature kowhai bush was still carrying a few flowers, but then the miniature is always out of synch with the main August/September flowering season of the full-sized kowhai.
Later in the evening, mindful of the slender pickings in my day’s collection I went outside into even chillier air, and captured the moonlit valley below. I am going to have to try some HDR techniques to get the city lights without causing the moon to blow out like this.
That will do for the day.
