Rock spire in Union Bay, Karekare

Shifting Sands of Time

This post has been prompted by a video I watched this morning from Kim Grant about how things change in the landscape.I have quite a few photos taken over the years that show changes in places but a few that I felt showed some dramatic changes are of Karekare Beach at Auckland’s west coast.

Kendall Bay, Auckland

Kendall Bay, Auckland. Christmas walk.

While visiting my family in Auckland for Christmas we went for a walk through a bush track down to Kendall Bay on Auckland’s North Shore. Quite a steep track but good for working off the extra Christmas food. Again, could be that I have eaten too much anyway. Kendall Bay,

Wall art mural on old Kaikohe Hotel

Walls of Kaikohe

Over recent years many of the walls in Kaikohe have been decorated with paintings.
The featured image of the painting on the wall of the old Kaikohe Hotel was the first major artwork done in Kaikohe back in 2013 but has since been lost as the hotel was demolished a year later.

Old Coppermine Photo Gallery Removed

I have removed the old Coppermine Photo Gallery as it is not very friendly with mobile devices.

I have been thinking about this for some time but have discovered that it won’t work at all with a site update that I need to make. The time has come.

Sunset at Omapere wharf

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.

Sunset at Rawene

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.

Kawakawa Visit

On Saturday, 19th September, I spent some time in Kawakawa with a few members of the Bay of Islands/Kaikohe Photography Club. From 10 until noon we roamed around the centre of town and the railway station photographing everything that took our attention. The weather which has not been the best lately held up with no …

Bridge Found

Some weeks back I went looking for a particular road bridge that I have driven over from time to time but I couldn’t remember exactly where. That day out led to this post – http://deniswilfordwp2/wp/2015/04/road-frustration/ – where I drove down Mangakahia Rd thinking that was probably where I saw it since I go this way …

The Cream Trip Reworked

I have re-worked my older photo essay about a day out on the Bay of Islands Cream Trip which I did way back in the year 2002. The original essay was spread over multiple pages and had rather low resolution low pixel sized images to cater for the slower web speeds then. It is now …
