Muriwai is one of my favourite places on the planet… It’s beauty and fierceness are indescribable. Every time I am there, I am shocked by it and as I leave I am planning my next trip. It’s only an hour from home, so it’s not that difficult. The seabirds are incredible, here are twoContinue reading “Muriwai Beach”
Love the wildness in this one, a sort of feral quality.
As if there ever was any doubt – this is an unretouched photo taken into the setting sun on Saturday night. I wanted to capture the beautiful back-lit toi toi. Imagine my surprise when I got home and found someone in the image – right there in the middle. Spooky. I also took a photoContinue reading “Spot the Ghost!”
Go ahead and click to see it full screen! It’s my best sunset photo ever! Look at those colours – an absolute rainbow!
On the ride back home… warm and tired, watching the sun set in honey hues, thinking how pretty it is. And then a flock of seagulls flies into the frame and I am so glad I have my camera in my lap. It may not be as sharp as I would like, but capturing justContinue reading “Grace”
It was perfectly grey, all shades of grey – grey clouds, grey water, grey breakers. No sunset at all. And then, just as we were packing up to go home the clouds parted just a bit. Just enough. Made my day.
One of those places where humans definitely do not belong and for that matter are not particularly welcomed. The surf is fierce, the bird life even fiercer if you should happen to stop and set up your tripod a little to close. I must go back soon. The first time in a place like thisContinue reading “Maori Bay sunset”
This image is so far disconnected from the actual event… I went to a Diwali event a friend was hosting in an old church that is now used as a public meeting space, very lovely. Beautiful singing – those hypnotic quarter tones that twist and fold my European sensibilities, many of the older people softlyContinue reading “Inside Out”
Though it wasn’t an especially good day for a sunset, I still got a pretty nice sunset photo. I just love the reflections in the little stream that flattens as it finally makes its way from the hillside to the sea. Sunset gets all the praise, but to be honest, I often think the mostContinue reading “Sunset at Muriwai”
This is image 499 of a project that began in September 2010. I didn’t know where it was going or why, only that somehow when I started doing these every day (with occasional days an even the odd week off here and there) I started telling a different kind of story, one that started inContinue reading “Dancer #3”
