Storms always make for beautiful sunsets. Too bad we don’t have as many summer storms in San Diego as they have in Florida...

200% cropped as shown, any further enlarging will decay image. Actually an after thought shot through my truck window, wasn't even sure I'd captured it until after arriving home.

We have dozens of "TVs" that roost in the trees behind our house. Graceful fliers. Last week they were all congregated on a neighbor's roof sunning themselves. It was a surreal scene.

Well, over here it's summer and also the location for the latest Americas Cup yachting races, the precursors of which are going on right now. We are fortunate to be in the position of living life as normal, with no community COVID transmission for months and consequently no limitations on gathering or movements.

The only challenges are for people trying to get into the country. So far around 90,000 Kiwis, permanent residents, and essential workers have gone through two weeks of managed isolation, and there are queues of people around the world hoping to take their places. So much so, that the government has had to issue a managed isolation voucher system so that airlines don't transport anyone without a reserved spot. Many of the big money yachting enthusiasts have sent their super yachts in ahead and now find that they can't enter the country because they have no vouchers!

In the meantime, as the start of racing draws near the downtown harbour area is bustling with supporters, crew and people just out for a good time:

Out enjoying the evening weather, no restrictions and we even got Santa's cross-dressing elves to visit!

Our economy has bounced back and our GDP, after a 3% dip, has bounded back way beyond expectations, thanks to Kiwis holidaying in the country instead of going overseas, or buying big-ticket items instead of travel.

Again the challenge is foreign access - right now, in Auckland we have 14 container ships sitting in the roadstead waiting for an opportunity to dock. In desperation they sent one container ship 250km up the coast to another port and have been running a shuttle service of container trucks, leaving every 6 minutes to come to Auckland - and that is going on for a week

More traditional vessels contrast with one of the super yachts, many of which had enough RADAR and comms to outfit a spy ship

I was out for a walk and was surprised to see the moon riding high in the sky, despite the sun being well up. So I just tried my luck hand-held as I stood on the sidewalk. I actually rather like the blue hue of the whole thing, I must admit.

I went to Muriwai Beach, just west of Auckland to shoot images of the last gannets nesting there, before they fly 2,000km+ to Australia. However I also caught some activity from the local surf lifesaving group doing some training:
First an overview of the beach, which goes on for many km.

Out for a morning constitutional I caught this Pipit (NZ Pihoihioi) on the side of the path. Like most birds they are inclined to flit often, so I shot from where I first saw it - thus the image is quite heavily cropped. Nevertheless, it seems to come out well enough. Amazing optic in this lens and fast, accurate focusing.

Hi, I just recently bought the RX10iv and was going thru all the pages of this forum. I saw this post about glare hitting the lens. One of the first accessories I bought was a proper telephoto style lens hood. Now I’m sure my tulip style hood would be helpful on the wider end and be somewhat functional on the tele end. Personally I really felt that for such a long telephoto lens this new round style hood would help with lens flare /glare ,contrast and sharpness. Now I know there would be vignetting at the wide end and there is from 24mm to 70mm. For wide angle I simply unscrew it and if necessary I attach it to a loop I made on my camera neck strap. The new lens hood stays on the RX10iv all the time and provides a extra layer of protection for the front element. So 50mm with vignetting and 550mm without. After all this camera was probably purchased by most of us for its great telephoto.
