March 7, 2015 … hazy inspiration

It was one of those days.


Aratere enters harbour

Inspiration was totally missing, and the weather was uninspiring. When I finally got out to take pictures, the harbour was almost obscured by the salt haze. The Aratere was coming in but was not very clear.



It seems that  the clarity depends on the angle of the sunlight and since it was near the end of the day, a sun low in the West made the haze worse. Matiu/Somes Island was out there, but lacked the clarity we enjoyed when we went out there.


Towards Pencarrow

From Petone Beach, looking South towards Pencarrow, things clarified a little.

That’s all for today, so I hope clarity returns tomorrow.


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.
