October 7, 2015 … difficult choices

Despite being joyously retired, I seem to be very busy.

Pt Howard

Across the harbour from Pt Howard

The hours in the day slip though my fingers and I scramble to grab some shots. A few days of strong wind and salt-laden vistas are making my photographic life difficult. I wandered around Seaview and Point Howard  yesterday and as my pictures show there was a lot of haze.


Seaview Marina in a shimmering sea

Bright sun towards the late afternoon caused a glittering seascape, but had little impact on the salt haze.


Chemical/Oil tanker STI Olivia discharging

Down at the oil terminal a tanker called STI Olivia was discharging petrol from Marsden Point, and the Miramar Peninsula was almost invisible.


The Eastern Bays

Along the Eastern bays from Lowry Bay to Eastbourne, there was a little more clarity.

And tomorrow my not be much better


About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
