Here’s another image from last Saturday at Blackhead Beach. This is right before a large, dark rain started forming and gathering towards the south. It was kinda weird as the tide was pretty low, yet consistent, but every so what seemed like a random wave would break.
I watch this dark bank of rain cloud make it’s way up the coast on Saturday afternoon. I was at Blackhead Beach and noticed that a large bank of cloud was gathering and slowly progressing towards Dunedin. By the time I took this image the sky was starting to look pretty spectacular. It turned into a fizzer really. It promised excitement but instead was a bit disappointing really.
The Dunedin peninsula has some fabulous stone walls on it that date all the way back to the days of the first settlers. They break up the land like a jigsaw and while some have fallen down, there’s still a large number that are standing, which is fairly impressive considering how exposed to the elements some of the walls are. If you go exploring for them you’ll need to remember that they are on private land and farms, especially around lambing time. Fortunately, this track is open to the public throughout the whole year.
Dunedin At Dusk – Silent I hover all the evening dusk.
15.08.17, 5:21pm – I took this last week at the end of a run of days with warm temperatures that reached into the teens. On the day I took this, It was already 10 degrees by 7am in the morning, which for Dunedin in August is pretty pleasant.
25.07.17, 5:30pm – The evening swell was creating waves in all sorts of directions tonight as the tide pounded the sea wall and rocks (and walkers) in Tuesday’s dropping light. As well as the traditional in and out motion of the sea, the rebounding waves off the rocks also created some small, but surfable waves that washed in front of the Esplanade at right angles.
24.07.17, 6:30pm – After mass flooding that left carnage across Otago and the South Island, normality is slowly returning with the weather conditions having settled down and the clean up operations underway.
Around the Esplanade, all’s quiet and well on a Monday night.
21.07.17, 9:30pm – Stay inside or head for your favourite coffee house is your best bet today here in Dunedin. The cafes, restaurants and bars like The Esplanade, Pier 24, Starfish or Salt will look after you and keep you warm and dry.
20.07.17, 4:30pm – There’s always a small crowd on the Esplanade at the end of the day at the moment, with people enjoying the last of the day’s rays as the sun fades from sight. If the forecast is anything to go by, we might not be seeing the sun or the warm winter light for the next few days, so best make the most of it.
It’s going to bucket down!
