Time for you to rest old timer ! by 

This ’ old timer ’ may have been around in the early 1930’s when the American author Zane Grey (1872 – 1939) established a number of world records for marlin and made the Bay of Islands New Zealand one of the top big-game fishing areas in the world.
Photograph taken at first light from the Waitangi bridge, Bay of Islands NZ.
Straight from the camera, no tweaking.

Fuji HS10 at 140mm, 1/200, f/5.6, iso 100.

    Such a peaceful image.

  • Cheers Myra – for your comment. I was like a one-armed paperhanger rushing from one side ofd the bridge to the other trying to catch the boats

    before the lovely early light went.
