I FINALLY took my 'real' camera on my morning walk and all I can say is: why oh WHY haven't I done this sooner??

The lighting was gorgeous in the park on the way down to the beach and I discovered the Magnolia trees in bloom.  I'm loving the colours in this image:

The lighting isn't so great in the next two... I was playing around with focus... first on the foreground:

...and then on the background:

The beach was deliciously gloomy:

Ignoring the fact that the horizon isn't level, the lines created by Rangitoto, surf and sand are pretty cool:

How cool is this cliff-side walk way:

Loving the mood of this shot - what a shame the birds aren't in focus:

I discovered this cool gate and stairwell:

Shooting from the same spot as above, but in landscape format - completely changing the feel of the image:

The lighting had changed by the time I finished my walk:

Back in the park I discovered daffodils - spring has arrived!!  I think this is as good as the images used by the Cancer Society for Daffodil Day marketing:
