View of the Sea

Ocean ViewSunday been, a mate and I headed over to Piha on Auckland’s West Coast for some early morning shooting. The night before had seen a particularly heavy thunder storm, but welcomed the morning with a clear sky.

Oddly, the tide always seems to be more out than in when I head with camera to Piha. This day was no different.

Walking down the south side of the beach, I caught todays image of my mate looking out to the surf, towards the Tasman Sea.

On a very different topic, this week I have been participating in ‘Live Below the Line’ challenge.  A worldwide awareness program, Live Below the Line challenges individuals to live off $2.25 NZD (~$1.50USD/1Pound)per day for all their meals. I cant accept food donations, or use food from the garden without offsetting the cost. Its proving to be challenging and eye opening. Breakfast porridge is fine, but by evening my energy levels have been better! About  1.2 Billion people live on this amount every day, covering not only their food, but any other bits and pieces needing money.

I’d welcome any support, but equally, encourage others to get involved!

    1. Thanks. I did slightly push the saturation, but the vignetting is a combination of my zoom used being at its widest, possibly magnified a little by the polarising filter.
