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.

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.

 

Mick’s place.

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

Inner harbour

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
