Sunday Seascape: 25 September - Chthonic Wildlife Ramblings

Brendan Moyle Sep 25, 2016

It’s not been a great weekend for outdoor photography in Auckland.  The steady rain and grey skies, without any dramatic storms, offered me few chances.  I did photograph the neighbour’s cat a couple of times, but it’s not really the same. These shots are thus, taken a little earlier in the week.  They’re of the sunrise at Waiake Beach.  On … Read More

As a diversion from the regular work routine, and to try something new, I’ve been taking photographs of the beaches and sea around us.  The convenient thing about seascape photography is that say, unlike wildlife or macro photography, the sea is always there.  And it never flies or runs away before you have the chance to get a shot.
