with a light offshore

Off The Point (day 2 of 30)

I was watching people paddle out into the surf while taking this shot thinking that I had no idea what the surf conditions were like. In fact, if asked, I wouldn’t know where to start or what to say. I could describe what I saw easily enough, however it couldn’t be classified as an accurate report. Reflecting on this, I’ve decided to stick to the online forecasts which according to Magic Seaweed site for Thursday evening is a 5-7ft swell with a light offshore wind.

Autumn on Water Street

Autumn on Water Street

Late last month before autumn officially ended and winter began, I went on one last search for some autumn colour. There’s still some last pockets around the city however in general the trees are pretty well bare now. Fortunately around Queens Garden in Dunedin I found a few trees the still maintained a hint of the autumn colour palette.

Into The Shimmering Light
Wandering finding curious and creative views as of Ōtepoti  I amble down each charter’d street.

This is one of my favourite beach/surfing photos. I haven’t spent much time down at the beach recently, I really should change that. With this image I was fortunate with the timing. The National Surfing Champs were due to start that morning and I was following the light and making my way across the rocks at St Clair. As I did so one of the major female contenders for the Open Section just happened to launch herself into the surf at the same time. I kinda like the end result.

This is George Street in Dunedin where the main shopping area is if your after fashion and other such items. I liked the idea capturing the buildings with a bit of glow coming from shops while the early evening sky lights up with a bit of colour.

Tyler Stent Street Art

Ed Sheeran by Tyler Stent

Is Tyler Stent a local Dunedin artist? I always assumed he was however it recently occurred to me that this is a piece of information I should know for certain. I know he has had art on show at the The Artists Room on Dowling Street and you can find more of his work on Carroll Street (Ralph Hotere mural) and at the cafe the Morning Magpie on Stuart Street. Which is your favourite?

Jetty To Vogel Street Overbridge

Jetty To Vogel Street Overbridge

Any guesses what year the Jetty St overbridge was built? When it was opened it replaced the old Jetty to Vogel Street overbridge that spanned the train yards here in Dunedin. The original bridge was made of Port Chalmers bluestone and was built between 1883 and 1886 for horses and carts then later vehicles like cars and tracks. It was eventually demolished after the new Jetty St bridge was built. So, what year was that …..

@johncaswellnz – As does drop and shadows remain
Wandering finding curious and creative views as I amble down each charter’d street.

I was chasing shadows across the Octagon earlier today as the sun dropped from sight. I originally started on lower Stuart Street and tracked the light and shadows as they shifted before ending with this wee scene. #lovindunners #majesticdunedin #johncaswellnz

Did you know that this building at the time of construction was the tallest in the southern hemisphere. Who would have thought in Dunedin’s quiet little Bond Street. It’s recently had beautiful golden foliage outside it throughout autumn.
