Heading north

Slowly making my way back to Plimmerton… I’ve learned the best travel is slow travel, so changed my original plan of ‘drive 5 hours & catch ferry to arrive home late at night’ to ‘taking my time’
Shot photos all the way up the Kaikoura coast, which is my favourite piece of road to drive in all of New Zealand – the road hugs the coastline the whole way…

Weird fog/cloud up top of the Kaikoura coast

And stopped, first to shoot desolate photos of the salt lakes at Grassmere & then stopped to shoot video of the salt processing plant, but of course had to record it…

6 channels of sound & 1 channel of video = just as it should be!
It will definitely make it into the HISSandaROAR Industrial Ambiences library I am slowly recording…

Such a joy to pass through beautiful contrasty landscapes, as the light shifts… Stopping for one night in Rarangi with a dawn shoot now that I actually know where the second wreck is that I couldn’t find last time! Tide was out by the time I got to it this evening, although still got some intersting shots due to the dusk clouds…. & definitely useful as a recce… But I crave to see it with the tide in – given the angle the dawn should be interesting, if I wake up in time!

Sincere apologies, these are all crappy iPhone photos… Hard to dive into Lightroom & Photoshop after driving/shooting all day…. & then transferring all the data… & then backing it up to external drive… & then cooking dinner…

    We have a little salt around here too (Salt Lake City), but I’ve never stopped at the plant to listen to it come off the conveyers… Will have to make the trip.
