June 27, 2015 … seize the day

Another day of flat calm and mostly blue sky.

Kingfisher

Sacred kingfisher keeps its feet dry while waiting for the next crab off the rank.

These are opportunities not to be missed. Miffed by my failure with the kingfishers the previous day, I went back to the inlet to try with the Canon. Wrong tide and the birds were  far away, so this image is a significant crop.

Heron

White-faced heron

A little further round the point, I found a pair of white-faced herons perched on adjacent rocks. I love the colour in their plumage.

Moonshine

Moonshine Valley

From there I went home via Moonshine valley and the insanely narrow and twisting road down to the Moonshine Bridge. A landscape on the way was worth a look.

Not an exciting day, but tomorrow will be a different story.

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.
