This business of looking out the window in the morning is getting to be a habit.
Heavy overcast with distant beams of sunlight around the Taita area greeted me yesterday. I took several shots but arguably one of these a day is sufficient.
Then the rain set in and showed little sign of abating, so by mid-afternoon, I set out anyway. There was a strong Northerly wind and I decided that the closest place to catch some onshore waves might be Makara. On the way. I passed an old shed I have seen many times before. Since I seemed to be the only one mad enough to be out in these conditions, I paused briefly on the narrow road and shot through the open window. If you look closely at the top left corner, you can see the angle of the rainfall (about 30 degrees).
Near the village at Makara, the river is close to the road and there seems to be a persistent colony of pied shags, and as usual, many of them were making use of a driftwood log.
Down at the coast, the waves were not huge but it’s an unfriendly beach at the best of times, and this would not be a day to be tangled in that surf.
That’s another day over.
