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’m now using EyeEm for sharing and backing up photos, as it works on the phone and on the desktop.
The following photos have been taken with the olympus, primarily when in Lake Hawea or Central.
Which is why the OM-10 does well for travel
We managed a couple of walks, one of which I took photos of, using a Fuji Xpro 1. The photos have been processed minimally in Darktable. This is up the Matutukituki Valley, Mt Aspiring National Park.

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.

These photos were taken by the ricoh GXR that lives in my work bag a couple of weeks ago when I had ten minutes on a very windy day to get to the very end of Dunedin Harbour
Processed in Apple photos.
Sunday again, but as the sun set it hit Waverly and the boats in the inner harbour.
