Evening at Burdan's Gate, Wellington harbour

The tides never cease
Two years ago I watched the sea rush in and out at dusk over shoreline rocks near Burdan's Gate on the eastern side of Wellington harbour. The human eye far exceeds the capability of cameras and lenses in most respects, but sometimes these inventions of ours show us what our eyes can't see. Still, nothing replaces being there.

As always I am in awe of your ability to capture this thing of water flowing over rocks. And that light, the perfect stroke of a master's paint brush.
