September 3, 2014 … a grey pro-forma day



White-faced heron low and slow

This is a “pro-forma” post.  My apologies for the quality. We are both still “under the weather”, and my pathetic efforts at getting images yesterday are indicative of my state of mind.  I did a quick trip around Pauatahanui, and was quite uninspired. A white-faced heron flew close so it is today’s first image.


I think I am missing the blue skies of Brisbane – greyness abounds

At Motukaraka point, there were a lot of kingfishers spread out across the mid-tide mud but I couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to get out and closer to them.

I am determined that however bleak the results, I shall not break the cycle.


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.
