At Claverley – the full version
March 9th, 2009
Our friend Helen organised the trip, there was to be around 14 keen photographers and we were going to Claverley, just down the coast from Kaikoura. Turned out there was 4 of us and we headed off Friday night and cruised south, over the Hundalees and out to the coast and Claverley.
We found our accommodation then organised our gear and made a few images in the last of the light with some nice Nor West cloud scattered across the sky.
Some dinner, a wine or two (for some of us) and a yarn then we were off to bed ready for an early get up Saturday morning.
Saturday morning it seemed like the middle of the night when we got up, with no network my cell phone said 12.15AM and I was thinking I had been tricked into an early rise. The sky soon lightened and we headed out to the beach to capture the sun rising through the clouds.
It’s an interesting place, there’s the big wild Pacific ocean, the main trunk railway skirts the beach and trains trundle past frequently, there are fences and buildings from another age, trees and interesting rock formations.
Recommended for a photo shoot expedition, thanks Helen.
The slide show is what I saw, in my usual random fashion.
