April Foolishness: Pic 1

March 31, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

This month I'm participating in a photographic challenge.  The goal is to use just one prime lens. I've picked the Minolta 20mm f2.8 RS.  It is a good, wide angle lens.  I've set myself the target of five photos every week.  This does mean most of the photos are likely to be local scenes. I'm not planning on anymore trips this month.  

The first shot was a short diversion after the 'school run', to Waiake.  

"The Tor"

The TorThe TorAn autumn morning on the Hauraki Gulf. Both the tor at Waiake and Rangitoto Island are in view.

Waiake is one of the beaches in Torbay, which is part of the Hauraki Gulf.  The actual tor, from which Torbay derives its name, is to the right of the picture.  Rangitoto Island is on the horizon.  This is also a 60 second exposure.  I employed the Lee Big Stopper to smooth out the water motion.  Not that there was much.
