The Sunday walk was foreshortened by stones, deep and cold water (I managed to get a thorn through my foot and waded for a bit to manage the pain) and kelp.
You normally can walk here

Sunday again, but as the sun set it hit Waverly and the boats in the inner harbour.
The northern hills
I was using, primarily, in this a very wide angle lens — a Voightlander 21mm F 3.5 Color Skopar. The processing, as usual, is from raw in Darktable.

Nikon d800: the Glenfalloch shots were done without a tripod. The other camera in the bag is the Mamiya 7, and when I process and scan more film there should be some good shots from it.
I use a different system for birding trying to get reach: a nikon DX 70 — 200mm zoom lens on a Nikon V3. The lesson from this walk was to use a tripod, to get better shots even with moving animals.

I had about a half hour last month with the D800 to get some shots the mist and snow hitting the hills, so I went to a rugby field.
Yes, it was a rugby field

Two kinds of interaction of wood and the sea: one alive (the Photukawa) and the other well made artifice (the Maraetai wharf).
Fuji X Pro one, Darktable.
Rangitoto, for those who have never lived in Auckland, is a dormant volcano in the harbour, which last erupted about AD 1200. It is a gentle cone: unlike most of the Auckland Volcanic field.
These photos were taken over a 2 hour period. Corrected in Darktable.
Fuji X Pro one: 60 mm macro lens and 35 mm lens.
The back side of Port Chalmers, about ten days ago.

Fuji X Pro 2, Processed in Darktable.
I was playing with a 60 mm macro lens on a Fuji Xpro at Omana beach. Photos have been processed a bit in Darktable.
This did not make it.
Last weekend, flat batteries in cold weather in camera, but the cellphone was still working. Admittedly, it is a sony cellphone, with a twothirds inch 20 MP sensor. Google stitched the photos automagically together.
