NatMAT and friends head to Moeraki

The 14 Nov saw some 17(!) photographers pile out of cars at Katiki Point lighthouse into a clear, sunny, and warm afternoon. The plan: photographing around the Katiki Nature Reserve, fish and chips at The Fishwife in Moeraki, then on to Moeraki boulders. Some folks chose to stop at Shag Point on their way home, they found a grand spot for a specific visit!

Walking around the reserve and headland led to images of photographers, fisherpeople, sea gulls, shags, penguins, terns, plants, insects, landscapes, and more. We were entertained with seal antics, in the water and on the rocks; the fishermen and their catches; and lots of birds in flight.

The general consensus seems to be The Fishwife dishes up some of the best blue cod around!

Then on to the beach and fun with jumping and pushing and sitting and running with the boulders. Some long exposures, reflections, and shadows. Those at Shag Point found barnacles, rocks, rock pools, sea weeds, star fish, more rock jumping, and more landscapes.

A fabulous afternoon, and evening, out with friends and photos …
