Surf’s Up!

Surf's Up! - Takapuna Beach

Two days before the storm.  Wind and waves start to build up and local surfers gather to ride the early waves.  Two days before a storm the view to the horizon is clear. When we can see Great Barrier Island without haze we know a storm is coming.  Today it arrived.


Storm Day

Today the storm arrived.  It was more wind and overcast really, but not enough rain to soak into the ground.  The fine sea spray got onto the lense and made it hard to take photographs.

Grey days make for difficult exposure.  Getting focus when sea mist gets onto the lense adds to the difficulty. Catching the atmosphere was the aim.
