At midnight tonight life in New Zealand reverts back to almost normal as the country drops to Covid-19 Alert level 1, but back in mid-May we had just come out of the depths of Alert Level 3 into Level 2.
Although travel between regions was now allowed, we were still being encouraged to get out and exercise but to stay local.
Sandy Point Reserve is local – being just 20 minutes drive from Invercargill – so on the 15th May we loaded the dogs into the car and took them out for a stroll on Noki Kaik Beach at Sandy Point.
Since ending my flirtation with film I had not only purchased a Nikon D300, but also replaced my 55-200 zoom lens with a more up-to-date, and more versatile, Nikon 18-200 lens.
As well as the dogs, the D300 plus 18-200 lens combination joined us on our stroll along the beach, and that camera-lens combo supplied the photographs you see here.
