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.

Marina

Seaview Marina in a shimmering sea

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

Tanker

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.

Bays

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

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.
