I was being lazy.
This won’t come as a surprise to some readers, especially those who know me best. From the wind noise round the house, the day was likely to be grey and mean-spirited, so I stayed in my bed catching up with the events of the day. On Facebook, a friend on the Kapiti coast had just posted a spectacular red sunrise, taken on his iPhone. I looked up and sure enough there was a crimson glow in the little gap between the curtains. I ran downstairs (yes, my knee is better, thank you for asking) to grab my camera and ran back up to catch the bright red light of a winter morning. Of course, it was past its best when I got there, but still quite bright. Five minutes later there was just grey. “Sic transit gloria mundi“*
Camera club business required me to deliver some prints to Kilbirnie, so I spotted the wind sculpture waving wildly about. I may try this again differently another time. The camera sat on the ground just a little off-centre from the pivoting wand and was triggered remotely.
In the afternoon, I headed Westward, and as I came over the ridge at the end of Grey’s Road, saw some interesting light out on the water at Plimmerton. I turned back and went up to the water tower on Pope St in Cambourne to get a less impeded view of the bay. Crepuscular rays are always a delight to work with but I haven’t often seen such a well-defined fan of rays or such a well lit area below.
That’s all for today.
