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.

Eastern Hutt

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.


About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
