I packed lightish: D800, 85 mm f 1.8 Nikkor, and 20 mm Voightlander f 4.5. I regretted bringing a longer zoom, as there was considerable bird life. These are the shots from a one hour walk.

In autumn the seals spend a fair amount of time on the Peninsula Beach.

We are in the process of unpacking, including pulling out the cameras. The Pro Photographer is thinking of when to upgrade her cameras. I am not. I’m still using a D800 as the main camera. Today I put on a second hand, ugly zoom (that was bought off a press photographer, with the hood held together by duct tape) and took it out into the rain, and shot all the photos but the one of the cat.
I was trying to get shots of the Pohutukawa flowers. This “The New Zealand Christmas Tree” normally flowers around Christmas. It is flowering a month late, even in the South: we are having a miserable summer, with snow on the hills in what should be the warmest time of the year. But the roses like it.

Slightly different processing: photos were imported using rapid photo downloader, which is lighter and faster, and then processed in Darktable. D800, F2.8 70 – 200 zoom.
Catching up with film processing. These were taken on a short trip where I went up the old north road to Waitati and then back down the new highway.

In October, Robyn and I visited our friend Mick. He lives in a house above Lake Hawea. It was spectacular.

Normal lens, during a walk (with rain showers) around Lake Hawea.
Nikon d800, darktable, and yes, I have taken multiple photos of one of those caravans….
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.
One lens (short telephoto). And one lens on a medium format camera: this will be revisited with analog when I can work out how to import C 41 chemicals.
