3 – 10 March ’12
True to form, the Manawatu puts on a stunning Autumn. After a complete fizzer of a summer, we finally see some sun. And the beach beckons.
We packed up the kids and a picnic lunch and headed for Himitangi. Along with half the local population. Boys tossing rugby balls, girls on horses, kids with kites, and a few brave souls who ventured in to the water – the beach was humming.
A wee tot, with her Grandma in tow, was checking out the sand. I am not sure she was too impressed with this gritty stuff.F-stop f/8 Exposure time 1/320sec ISO speed ISO-200 Focal length 125mm
I didn’t take my flash with me to the beach, so I’ve had to brighten the shadows some in post.
