Another sunrise over Kawau Island this time with more than a hint of peaches and apricot - sounds like a fine bottle of Gisborne Viognier - a sudden impulse to examine my camera gear again a few days ago after a long lay off has rekindled my excitement with photography. The sunrises on view here definitely give plenty of encouragement and it was difficult to become enthusiastic again after recent life events. Kawau Bay is usually reasonably calm due to being well sheltered by the island so no stormy crashing waves for dramatic scenes here (unlike Gisborne) rather the subtle changes of light, particularly the blue and golden hours of the day, and occasional old style sailing ships moored in the Bay to create interest. As is visible here the cloud formations over the Hauraki Gulf - behind Kawau - can often add drama to the scene.
Time to shoot a few snaps but still - Rather short of time at present with study and work but having a look at everyone's splendid images when I can.
