Time in amongst the trees
It was Sunday. That also meant it was time for an escape. I packed a light kit of gear and headed up into the Okura Bush Walkway. By light I meant a MeFoto tripod, a Sony a7R, a Minolta 17-35mm f3.5 G lens and some filters. I didn't know what to expect. I just wanted to be down in the trees again.
It was possibly a mistake I didn't take a longer telephoto. I was able to watch a pair of male miromiro (NZ tomtits, which paradoxically, aren't tomtits at all) cavorting about the track. With the grey skies and low tide however, photo opportunities were rare. I stuck to the trees.
#1 Fallen Log
This log shot also gives a good perspective on how dense NZ native forest can be, and how little light often reaches the forest floor.
The Pohutakawa is a coastal tree that clings to the margins of beaches and cliffs. It creates a very sprawling and organic shape.
