Well dug out camera went up to Pakiri beach and around Warkworth, visited Wilson Cement Works ….great swimming hole but the old cement works fenced off and full of graffiti.

Use it or loose it …..photography rubbish, weather not greatest either …..


Pakiri beach with Tauranga Island in background ( some weird purples in sky?)

Thanks :-) I was really amazed to see brand new babies when the other cygnets are beginning to be almost indistinguishable from the parents.

Must have done. But the swan parents have always seemed very diligent, especially compared to most ducks. Just from observing on walking the dog ....

While I'm not into stockcars, I do think the M5 is remarkably capable. Whenever I use it, I am amazed :-)

On another thread somewhere, I see people talking about the other, more recent Canon M versions. I haven't been at all tempted - partly because of the G9 but mainly because the others don't seem to have a built in viewfinder, which for me is a must.
