July 9, 2015 … desperate day

Nothing seemed to fire yesterday.

Mt Climie

Sunlight on Mt Climie

Some days are like that, but I hate it when it happens. In Wellington, snow is unusual, to the extent that when it happens, the news media write about it. It arrived on the hill tops yesterday, and there was hail lower down.  There were moments during an otherwise drab day when the sun peeked through and picked out icy ridges. This image is Mt Climie, as seen from my bedroom window.

Shell

Unidentified shell – just here to pad out the numbers

As the day came to a close with nothing much “in the can” I resorted to still life and got close to one of Mary’s sea shells.

I hope for better things today.

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.
