It took a while to start looking for pictures yesterday.
When I finally stirred myself into action, I consciously tried for different perspectives from my usual ones. I went up to the water reservoir at Point Howard, and looked South across Seatoun to the Kaikoura Ranges in the very far distance.
From the same place, there is a view of the Seaview Marina which is different to the normal water level shots I have tried there. I am still learning the various quirks and complexities of the Olympus, so when I got home, I was not well pleased with what I caught.
Since Mary is still in Sydney, I decided to head into the city and try some night shots. It was not a great idea since there was an ugly boisterous wind, and even with a heavy tripod, the buffeting was inconsistent with the long exposures required. Add to that the fact that the boats in the marina were not sitting still at all, and certainly not for a 30 second exposure.
When I could set up in a less exposed position and shelter the camera from the wind, I achieved sharper results, though the choice of subjects was more limited. In this case, St Gerard’s monastery was the subject.
That’s all for now.
