Bookends

Yesterday was a day bookended by dramatic clouds, first at dawn when I was drawn to the beach to record some Oyster Catchers (birds) having a territorial dispute, flying big loops along the beach as the intruding Oyster Catcher was shown the exit

Then at the end of the day, flying back to Auckland after a quick trip to Wellington to sort out a few things with my new house/studio – view from the window seat as the sun was just setting:

It made me think about how the ‘bad’ part of ‘bad weather’ completely depends on what you are doing. A beautifully sunny day with no clouds is always welcome but nothing beats the drama of an approaching storm, even if this morning was only a very brief shower…

    Regarding your bad in bad weather comment. A friend of mine always says ‘there’s no such thing as bad weather, there’s only bad clothing’ :) or in other words, preparation is key when it comes to weather types. Nice picture from the iPad, that’s not a iPad2 right?
