Wonderful rocks

Here is an amazing place to visit - not for the reasons that many people go - but for an incredible sense of the timelessness of the place. It's called Kura Tawhiti in Maori, but usually called Castle Hill. I think I prefer the maori which means 'treasure from afar'!
Great place for climbers I'm told - but I think photographers probably have a ball too. I certainly did!

Some things go on forever. The roar of the sea, on and on - to lull you to sleep.
If ever you want a good night's sleep - just go to a nice beach, and stop for a while. Listen to that endless, timeless surge.

Stumbleupon and other things

I did a wonderful stumble today - can't remember exactly how I found it, but I found a really good web site on composition and other photographic basics. It's and has some really great things on it.

I'd had a crappy photo-taking day, no 'inspiration', photos looked horrid - I think what's happening is that I'm miles more critical than I used to be, so what I used to think was 'ok' I'm not satisfied with, and I'm trying to be more creative and discriminating, and of course, it's harder. So this was a refreshing place to find. Back to basics.

And as for Stumbleupon - I suppose I've forgotten to go back and visit - I have to say I love SU, it has some GREAT ways to find interesting sites, and when I'm in the mood and lacking inspiration, lots of ways to generate the spark again!

This, by the way, is my son. He needs no modification to look devilish, the cat, however, did.
