Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Takapuna Evening

I looked out of the window several evenings ago as the sun was lowering in the sky and knew I had to get down to the beach.  The tide was out, a small surf was breaking, and the light was turning to a light gold.  Because it has been so wet in Auckland this winter the land is saturated and the ground water seeps onto the beach and glistens in the evening light.  People on the beach were taking advantage of the fine spell of weather, getting in their evening walks before dinner.

These four images attempt to capture the mood of the evening.
