When the sun unexpectedly shone forth after a day of cloud I decided to nip down and walk along Owhiro bay to experience the rushing wind along the coast. I ended up taking a bunch of video of kelp swirling around in the swell with sheets of wind swept water shooting across the frame. For the photos I did take, this one would be one of my favourites. Utilising my new 200mm I went for a nice shallow DOF focusing on the Interislander as it appears to float above the waves – more so than usual anyway – as the sun sinks low.
