Chasing a Sunset – Omapere

I had a trip planned for Wednesday 16th May to visit Omapere when the sun would be setting more or less in line with the wharf. I worked this out using the Photographers Ephemeris. As it happened I decided to do this trip on Tuesday instead, which turned out perfectly as the sunset on Tuesday was great. If I had left it until Wednesday I would have missed out as the weather was overcast with no sunset at all.

Several photos from that trip.

Chasing a Sunset – Rawene

Now that it is nearly the end of autumn here I felt it was time to make an effort to capture a good sunset, so with that end in mind I took a drive out to Rawene where there is a good view across the Hokianga Harbour instead of into a hill that is my westerly view from home. Going somewhere to photograph a sunset is always a bit of a chance as you never know what you are going to get. In this case, it worked out well.
