Another beautiful day weather wise in Auckland – bordering on hot. Todays shot is taken from North Head on the North Shore, looking north up Cheltnham beach towards Takapuna. A good number of people were out in the water, possibly experiencing the first swim of summer. We passed groups and couples relaxing on the hill in the sun and watched the various boat races out in the harbour.
Today’s image was shot on the Sony with my Juipter-8 Lens. It had been a while since I had dug out the manual lens on the Sony, and today’s walk proved a good outing to do so on. Although a little softer as it gets to the corner, it gives a nice feeling to the images.
Editing in Gimp, I did bump up the contrast a notch before resizing and adding rounded corners.
That’s the end of Sunday, on rolls another week!
One my favourite swimming beaches in Auckland. At high tidy only though.
Yes, it’s useless at low tide – although, back in the day, great for digging for pipi’s (not anymore sadly)
