That seasonal thing is still happening.
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.
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.
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.
