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.
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.
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.
I have just reviewed all the pictures from last weekend, and the highlights were catching the fog in the inner harbour and the coast behind the Otago peninsula.
And a seal.
I think the seal wins.
Seal says stop
It is the very busy time of the year. The number of walks we have had has been limited by family duties. These are some shots taken at Warrington and Brighton, Dunedin.

Photos taken primarily with a 20 mm f 4.5 Voightlander, D800, processed in darktable to 1500 .png. These seem to load faster than if I put the raw files up.
I made a mistake today. I did not put a camera in the car when we were going for a walk, The phone then decided to freeze, so this is all I got.
However, last Sunday and Saturday I did carry a camera. It helps: particularly when chasing light. In this case, all were taken with a D800
First set taken with Motorola X phone: second set with D800, processed in Darktable
In which we caught a ferry.
I got obsessed with the way trees were reinforced and sculptures on the roof of the IFC tower
In which we get a bus to the Peak, then a tram down the hill.
From the Tram
Ewo cameras, two sites same day
One photo hand held with a zoom: two photos using a tripod and a wide angle prime. The connection is working with harsh light.
Processing in Darktable.
