June 6, 2015 … seasonal transition

That seasonal thing is still happening.

Autumn

Autumn lingers on in the Riddiford Gardens, Lower Hutt

I met my youngest son for coffee yesterday at “The Little Cafe” situated in the foyer of Lower Hutt’s Little Theatre. I recommend it.  While I as there, I noticed that there were some remnants of Autumn colour gleaming brightly after recent rain. Unlike our little maple, these trees are sheltered so that the leaves may delay the inevitable drop a little longer.

Layers

Layered landscape … looking behind Tawa from Horokiwi

In the late afternoon, I went up the hill to Horokiwi, guessing correctly that some of its views across the hills would be interesting in such moist and misty conditions. The kinds of image that I hoped for were there, but in tiny fragments of the landscape.

A hilly landscape such as ours offers an almost infinite variety opportunities as the light and cloud vary.

Aratere

Aratere comes home ahead of the weather

On my way down to sea level again, I was at the entrance to the Horokiwi quarry when I spotted a nice aspect of the harbour entrance, Under a heavy sky the ferry Aratere was coming into port.

That’s another day done.

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.
