A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Through-Glass

During our new Zealand road trip

 

MGW had my camera nearby to capture scenes

that would have been impossible for me to photograph.

 


With my camera hard up against a window

I manage to capture some of this sunset

on Friday October 5, at the

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner which was held at

Devon on the Wharf in Auckland. 

Mine images are a bit different to the sample shots in te challenge post. 

They are, however, all taken through glass.

Because all of our travels over recent years have been so ‘organised’

we decided that the pre-wedding road trip was to be a relaxing venture. 

No more than two or three hours driving each day. 

We booked accommodation in six different towns/cities

and from there it was whichever way the wind blew! 

Auckland, Waitomo, Taupo, Rotorua, Whakatane, Matamata and back to Auckland. Consequently locals were only too happy to direct us to some

of the rarer sites of New Zealand. 

Mentioning that we were going to Whakatane

drew several comments urging us on to Ohope Beach,

near the most southern part of the Bay of Plenty.

 

And this is what we found. 

A beautiful stretch of coastline which, I am sure,

would be jam-packed with beachgoers

and tourists in the warmer months.

In early October the dog was enjoying an unimpeded walk.

No-one appeared to be concerned about White Island,

an active volcano, on the horizon.


This last shot is looking towards Opotiki. 

we also decided to visit seeing as we were nearby.

This was the view…

through the window of our Bed and Breakfast accommodation

at Matamata, just a few minutes drive from

the Hobbiton Movie set.

This week’s water photos are two of my favourites.

A Point Lonsdale Lighthouse sunset

in July 2017 provided this image. 

I like it simply because it was

my first achieving silky smooth water.
