When it rains
With the weather news in India and Texas, it's been easy to overlook that a few days ago, the largest storm on earth was hitting NZ. Well, the outer 20% of it anyway. I've been struggling to get much photography done the last few weeks. One spawn has a concussion. And workloads at work suddenly spiked. In that 'I need to spend every waking moment' on this, kind of spike.
Anyway, by Wednesday I was in need of a break. So I left early, took a short diversion, and visited the Oremu Reserve on the way to work. It's not exactly en route but wasn't going to eat too much into the morning. I was also hopeful that all the recent bad weather would have increased the waterflow in the streams and waterfalls there.
Another goal was to try out a new piece of kit. I've added a Lee Circular Polariser to the landscape kit. Polarisers have useful effects on water or forest scenes, that aren't easily duplicated on the computer.
I had about 30 minutes in the reserve and ended up with four pics I liked. Each are taken with an a900 and Minolta 20mm lens. Enjoy :)
