Southwesterly

Skater Girl (Day 30 of 30)

When the whether changes and drops in Dunedin, it really changes. A few days ago the weather was warm and pleasant. Then, all of sudden a southwesterly change hit, the temperature dropped and the outlook for the rest of the week is left looking average. Not to be downhearted, today is number 30 of 30. My goal was to photograph and publish the Esplanade each day for 30 days. In real time it was probably more like 35 to 40 days however as they were my rules, I decided they were some what flexible.

Shadows & Light

Hill Top Glow (Day 25 of 30)

Happy Thursday all. OK, so day 25 of 30 has been a bit overdue, by 6 days actually. I was covering rugby all weekend and then a few very long working days earlier in the week meant I didn’t get anywhere near the Esplanade or my blog. Fortunately, today was a little less manic and I was able to end the day watching the light disappear over the hills of Andersons Bay before the coast was cast into shadows.

becoming fine??

Along the rail (Day 23 of 30)

I tried to time today’s images so I wasn’t shooting in the rain. However, the forecast for the next 3 days in Dunedin is outstanding for July! If the metservice is correct the temperature is going to soar to a whopping 13 degrees. Remembering at the beginning of the month it was 3 degrees in the middle of the day, 13 and fine sounds terrific to me. Hopefully the surf conditions pick up for a few aqua images as well.

High Tide + Arvo Drift

Arvo Drift (Day 22 of 30)

The school holidays and high tide on the Esplanade mean one thing. Lots of wet kids! The sea spray that’s created from the waves hitting the sea wall is very impressive and it soaks the footpath and anything near by. Kids have great fun standing and waiting for the waves to it and then try and run out of the way (unsuccessfully) without getting wet.
Lots of holiday fun.

Window Lights

Window Reflection (Day 21 of 30)

I was on the Esplanade at 8:00am today just before sunrise, as a wonderful glow was developing in the sky. It’s an interesting place in the mornings as somedays lots of people out walking in the chilly morning air. Then, there are days when the place is almost empty. Today seemed to be filled with dog walkers out and about as the morning sunrise bounced off the windows of the Esplanade Restaurant.

Lady and the Dog

Lady and the Dog (Day 20 of 30)

This is part of an old boat ramp at one end of the Esplanade. It runs from the back of the St Clair Surf Life Saving Club and at one time use to run underneath the Esplanade and out into the ocean. In 2013, when sink holes appeared on the Esplanade the hold concrete ramp was deemed unsafe and so demolished. An alternative ramp was built at the northern end of the ocean wall near the poles.

Just Another Bombtrack

Pastel Coloured Clouds (Day 19 of 30)

25 Steps (Day 18 of 30)

Today’s a double post filled with lots of random bits and pieces. Firstly, it’s a double post day as I didn’t get yesterday’s photo published. This was due to fact that I was covering some Grassroots rugby which you can see here if you’re interested https://tapebootsandbeer.com/.

Secondly, today’s image (Pastel Coloured Clouds, Day 19 of 30) I managed to get during a short period when all the low cloud lifted and a touch of colour appeared in the sky.

Thirdly, I was listening to Rage Against The Machine while out shooting on the beach this afternoon, which inspired today’s blog post title Just Another Bombtrack.

Fourthly, I hope everyone on the West Coast is ok. About 1000 have been evacuated and are unable to return to their homes in Westport after a weekend of heavy rain and rising river levels caused widespread flooding over there.
