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.

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.

 

Fog and a seal.

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.

Two walks.

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.

Last weekend, this weekend.

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

Light on the Harbour

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.

Ducks and Bokeh, Leith Valley

These were taken ten days ago, on a walk through a park in Leith Valley.

Nikon d800, Voightlander 20mm f4.5, Nikkor 85 mm f1.8.

Sunday at the inlet.

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.

Processed in Darktable.

Seals, beach, fog.

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