August 7, 2014 … windswept wandering

Ugly weather returned.

Buoys

A wild vision of helium filled balloons lifting the boat by the stern … of course they are buoys associated with fishing.

Not to worry, every day offers new opportunities, no matter what the weather does. I began yesterday’s search at Seaview Marina. The blustery wind made reflections shots unlikely, but the cluster of buoys on the stern of a trawler made an interesting focal point.

Sheep

Quintessential New Zealand

Over the hill to the Wainuiomata Coast Road, and a pastoral scene looked worth making a shot of. I noted the two outlying sheep way op the hill on the left.

Wainuiomata

Bleak weather at the South Coast

At the coast, all was bleak and wind-swept. Heavy waves and airborne grit were the order of the day. This view is to the East towards Turakirae and the seal colony. This would not be a place to go swimming.

Lowry Bay

Reflections at Lowry Bay suggest that the wind abated for a while … the calm was short-lived

Yesterday evening I had a camera club committee meeting to attend in Eastbourne. On the way, the reflections in Lowry Bay seemed worth a shot.

Today seems even rougher but I hope to find something.

About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
