June 18, 2015 … hither and yon

Randomness was the order of the day.


Red rocks, green swells, white spray

On the South Coast near Moa Point, the red rocks and green swells seemed worth a look. Those must be some of the sharpest rocks around, and they must terrify many of the passengers who fly close to them on final approach to Wellington Airport.


The boatsheds at Hikoikoi … in theory, it is not permitted to live in them. The practice may be different. George’s boat has taken a pronounced list to starboard.

At Hikoikoi,there was no visible activity, but I did notice that the boat which is the favourite perch of Georg, our friendly white heron has taken a lurch to the right. I hope that doesn’t diminish his enjoyment of the boat.


a 1:1 macro shot of a miniature kowhai blossom. I shall get better at controlling focus and depth of field

In the afternoon, I learned that my new macro-lens had arrived, so of course I had to play with that. This image is the bottom half of a miniature kowhai blossom. It is the complete uncropped image, so as you can see the lens lets me get very close.

That’s enough for now.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
