I'm not big on road names. I just give them a rating of awesomeness.

I was thinking you didn't want to play with me anymore. After all you've missed the last 2 rides (RRRR & Ocean Beach) & then you told me that you didn't want to take up the mantle of an Honourary Airhead (ride 1 & 1/2 wks away), even when I mentioned extra East Cape riding... .

Might want to take this across to the 'Gus' thread or the 'Off Topic' thread, before we foul TSPFD's thread tooo much

Whangaehu

I've been struggling a bit with landscape photography, so thought I'd give it a serious shot. There's a little competition I'm entering, and I wanted to get something special. I've had the idea of this shot for quite some time, but the stars have never aligned.

I left home at 5.30 Saturday morning, with the idea of heading to Whangaehu beach. This is a very small settlement in the Southern Hawkes Bay. The small beach has an interesting reef which juts straight out into the ocean. I figured a sunrise shot would be awesome, and with the weather being a little bit shit, there was a small chance of something spectacular.

The ride out wasn't brilliant. The rain did stop once I got towards the coast, but anyone who's riden the road to Porongahau will know that this isn't a road to play games on....in the dark...with a wet road...and gale force winds. My light isn't the best and I found the edge of the front tyre on a steep downhill right hander. You know that feeling when you're on the edge of the knobs, and the front is starting to push away from you. Not fun.

The beach was a little further than I expected. 96km to be exact. I got there at 6.55 as the sun was just rising.



I climbed up the bank and set up my mini tripod just in time to get this



After pissing around for 20 minutes trying to get better angles, the wind came up.



I was having to wipe the spray off the lens after every shot, so decided to move to the other end of the beach for shelter and breky.





Arty shots





The incoming tide was starting to reach my bike. The stand was sinking, so time to go



I headed north to Blackhead to run along the beaches there.



Sandblasted



The tide was coming in fast, so the last section got a little interesting



Home by 11am with browny points fully intact. Hosed the bike off, took the kids to the park. Brilliant day.

Some of us have to do landscape shots 'cause our cameras are too slow to cope with motion...

if you don't win a prize for one of those then the winner must be shagging the judge

Cheers guys. Not bad for a guy who's never done a photography course, and only read 1 book on the subject. Perhaps I should learn how the pros do it.
