It was a good moody day for a funeral.
From the Hutt Valley, the view up the hills towards home was variable, coming and going as the rain drifted by.
After the funeral service in the afternoon, I paused to look at the mud-stained Hutt River, a metre or two higher than normal.
In the evening, it was camera club where I was delighted to get an honours award for one of my images in the latest round of the club’s internal competition. On the way home I diverted to Seaview and tried to capture the sense of the Oil terminal with its gleaming trucks and a fleet of tankers ready to deliver petrol to the lower part of the island.
Sun is pouring in my window so I had better go and do something new today.
