January 30, 2015 … mists of time

Normal service is now resumed.

South

From Mt Victoria looking South with low cloud crossing the airport

There were some odd clouds to the South yesterday, and from the Valley I could see that Brooklyn Hill was shrouded, and the airport was coming and going as clouds drifted over at sea level. Perhaps Mt Victoria might be a good vantage point.

West

Looking Westward over the city you can see that Wrights Hill and other high points in that direction are missing.

East

To the East, a long roll of cloud provided backing to the Eastern hills and obscured the Rimutakas. A bank of low level cloud is blowing in to the harbour, and the ferry Aratere is heading out on its journey to Picton.

Hikoikoi

It would be inadequate to present all my images taken while standing on one spot, so I went past Hikoikoi on the way home. No visible life there unless you count the fibrous mats of green weed swept in on the tide.

That’s all for today.

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.

    The Hikoikoi picture gets my vote. Just. Over the one with the ferry. I like both a lot. Maybe it’s the collapsed boardwalk?
