Moored boats on the Waitangi river, Waitangi,
Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
There always has to be someone or something that doesn’t conform – not only out of line but the other way round from the rest of the boats.
I suppose that’s what makes life interesting.

To-day at 0600 on the 27th January 2011,I went and had another look at this area after posting the previous days pics – the difference in the lighting is quite pronounced but I prefer this one by far.

    Where did they all go, fishing I guess, stunning capture Roy.

  • Cheers Andrea – looked like it was going to be a good day and the cyclone was due so I think a lot took the opportunity for a quick fish !

    I love the name of this shot!! And also the soft ripples in the foreground water, and the ruffled looking water in the background. It draws you into the shot. Great composition. PS: maybe the boat owner is a wayward soul too ?!

  • Compliments gratefully received – I knew I liked this photographed but after reading your comments I saw it in another light. In fact, it is all about light and those ripples.

    Augh … serenity.

  • Thank you so much Sonia – the sunrises from this spot across the water are spectacular at certain times of the year !
