Eastbourne harbour Hutt River Kelson Maritime Wellington

November 15, 2014 … looking down from the heights

Random side tracks sometimes pay off.

The wide view from Kelson to the South


Yesterday, as I was looking for pictures, I chose to drive to the upper reaches of Kelson. It is the most Northerly of the suburbs on the Western hills of the Lower Hutt, and by far the highest. Needless to say, it affords some spectacular views.

Looking over the Eastern suburbs of Lower Hutt from Kelson


Looking a little to the East we see the same tank farms we saw just two days earlier, though from a different angle> Eastbourne is around the coast behind the ridge on the left. and the bridge over the Hutt River estuary at Petone is on the right.

Kaitaki running late


Looking straight down the harbour mouth we can see the ferry Kaitaki  coming in. It normally leaves Picton at 1:15 pm , but at this stage it still has at least half an hour to berthing and is about 50 minutes behind schedule.

See you tomorrow, perhaps.

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.
