It was a very windy day; the sun was out, and it was a bight one, but the winds were quite strong all day.Though it likely would have been a good day out capturing photos, I wasn’t feeling like heading out driving today. So, I stayed in the room reading and just enjoying the view from the room. Sitting on the balcony in the warm sun while watching the harbour proved to be a satisfying pastime.
Alas as sunset came, I felt an urge to walk about and capture any sunset images that may occur. So, I packed a couple lenses and set out along the walkway around the harbour. The wind was intense, but it wasn’t overly cool, so the walk was actually quite pleasant. As I reached the end of the harbour the wind strength increased, and I decided to store my cap for its safety.
The scene was lovely with the waves were crashing over the top of the final bit of the causeway that leads to the lighthouse. I stopped to gather a number of high waves as they doused the walk. Some were higher than the lamp stands. As sunset came a few others gathered to photograph and video the waves. Some got a bit wet from the spray, including myself. At least it is fresh water not like spray at home! Soon the last moments of the sunset came. It was quite overcast and there was only a brief moment when the sun was visible below the clouds and above the horizon. Not an overly great sunset but still it proved interesting with the rough waves.
Once the sun was gone, I refocused on the causeway and with the lights now coming on, I had some interesting new scenes to enjoy. After a few more images I packed away the gear and casually walked back along the walkway. A short day but it had its own beauty demonstrating the power of nature.
