Driftwood and snow.

We had a few days of cold and rainy weather. This translated to snow on the mountains, when we could see them

The photos were white balanced against the snow, and this prings out the golden haze of what should be late Summer. When you are supposed to find driftwood, but not snow.

At a crib.

There are two colloquial words that are regional in New Zealand. In the north island, a “bach” is a holiday home, generally simple, small and plain, and somewhat scenic. In the photo shoot I have a ruined bach. In the south island they are called cribs.

And they are dying, beucase the scenic areas now have subdivisions. This one is between two subdivisions, and will soon be no more.

Photos taken with Nikon one and Olympus OM-10 mark II. Processed in Darktable.

After Dinner photos

After dinner we dropped some rubbish off, and then went to Jacoh’s creek, where I managed to take some photos in the gallery. Then we drove up to a lookout, where we scouted for sunset photos.

On the way up we noticed that a lot of campervans were parked on a sandbar. Robyn and I drove there, below the usual water level for the lake, and took some more shots.

Half were taken with a 12 MP nikon V1, the other half with a 36 MP Nikon d800. Both are old cameras, and both are fairly good.

If you pixel peep you should be able to work out which is which.

Dublin Bay.

I don’t use my 50 mm (normal) lens very much. Perhaps I should.

But the reason I do not is that I get less photos per session, and a lot of missed shots.  Which is irritating. Particularly when the light changes.

Sunday walk, Dublin Bay, Lake Wanaka.
