At the end of the day

The day here has been glorious. Warm, sunny, and only a slight breeze blowing. The light called me out after dinner and we headed to Motukaraka Point on the other side of the Pauatahanui Inlet.

Here are some light photos that drew my eye.

We also stopped and watched wild rabbits feeding on the lush spring grass and enjoyed two lively Kakariki….no photos of those yet on my camera but here is one from the NZ Birds online website.

Daylight saving

We are back into Daylight Saving time here in New Zealand. We put our clocks forward an hour in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The day here was wet, cold and windy. The day saved the best of the light until last with this lovely pastel sky as part of the sunset.

Sky Lines

We are experiencing a lovely spell of weather currently. It is a total surprise to us as July is normally a truly winter month. This one has had so many warmer days that spring is arriving early at the moment. With the clear, calm weather we have been having lovely sky both morning and night.
Last evening someone had the ruler out and had drawn lines in the western sky.
