Bravo Mother Nature As She Wishes Us Good Night…

In January 2018 Family Kiwidutch made a detour from their stay in Hanmer Springs to travel to the West Coast and see the Franz Josef glacier.

The drive was too far for one day so we stayed in Greymouth at a hostel called ‘South of the Barber” on the way there and on the way back.

Arriving back after our day trip south, and a look around Greymouth where we found some beautiful buildings and some amazing murals, we were just in time to be treated to wonderful sunset.

Our vantage point on the hill gave us a wonderful view out towards the sea in each direction along the coast.

A large tree blocked the southern aspect a bit, but on the other hand had the advantage of filtering the light and different colours through the gaps in the branches.

As a complete novice (actually not even that, I’d say ‘ zero wisdom”) photographer when it comes to low light setting photography, I found out by accident that zooming in decreased the light and made the sky look darker than it was, but had the advantage of detail, so whilst the photographs are in the sequence in which I took them, the level of light in them does not necessarily reflect this.

I was pleased enough that even though the colours we saw were far brighter, that the camera captured at least a good impression of those colours.

I did have delete may photos, some of them with better cloud effects, simply because people on the balcony kept pointing all the time and I kept getting random blurred pieces of arms, hands or fingers in the pictures. Never mind.  Some half dozen guests came out onto the balcony area at the top of the stairs to enjoy the cloud formations and sunset scene, among them Kiwi Daughter, who had called me out there just in time for Mother Nature’s sunset show. Understandably it was over all too soon but it was enjoyed whilst it lasted. Bravo Mother Nature as she wishes us good night.
