Cape Palliser

Cape Palliser lighthouse is situated 50km south east of Wellington and according to “Lonely Planet” is one of the top 10 lighthouses in the world… Or so I’m told.

Somes Island Gull and Lighthouse

A shot from my trip to Somes/Matiu  Island last week.

At first glance nothing special until you realize that this is a fixed lens camera with a focal length of a 50mm on 35mm film. I think the focus put the gull at around 4 feet from where I was standing which is nearly as close as the Rollei will focus. The Gulls were nesting with offspring and were pretty territorial… more on that in another post…

This is from last weeks 4WD mission out past Redrocks.

I am assuming that this around about the SS Penguin sank in 1909

I like the fact that its a bit crooked. Not sure if it was built like this on purpose to break the waves that come from predominately one direction or if the person who put it there was permanently drunk.
