Couple of pics from my early morning walk, looking out over Wellington Harbour (taken from above Seatoun). Amazing how the sky kept changing to be even more striking.

First photo was 648am (3 second exposure on iPhone 13). Last was 730am.

Lovely inversion layer over Lyall Bay in Wellington on Tuesday the 31st Oct. Was one of those very rare almost dead-calm Wellington evenings! Photo taken looking West over the airport towards Lyall Bay at about 720pm.

Not sure to be honest. Up close it just looked a bit muddy/silty, but from above it kinda has a milky green look.

Back in June it was extremely muddy/silty: viewtopic.php?p=211438#p211438

Probably to do with the recent, well earlier rain in the year for Auckland?

Stunning sunset from Wellington this evening.

And I love this time of year as I can get silhouettes of my MetalBirds I have placed in the large (annoying*) sycamore tree in the reserve outside my property.

*annoying as the are prolific self seeding trees, and we have to remove hundreds of seedlings from our property and surrounds! And they grow VERY fast!

^ A time-lapse of that formation evolving would be interesting to see!

Went for a local bushwalk this morning before the rain came in. This section of track through the estuary is always cool when it's high tide :smile:

Went for a walk today along the banks of the Waihi River, which flows through Geraldine.
They have done some improvements to the river through the town as to prevent erosion and flooding in future heavy rain events.
