I just loved photographing this jetty in Akaroa, it was full of character with its cute little shed at the end.
This old jetty is now closed to the public as its quite unsafe but in its heyday it was a lifeline for the local timber industry.
We had so many rainy days on our recent trip to NZ and this was one of them. it was blowing an absolute gale and it was COLD. the only way to get a good shot here was to get 2 shots and blend them so that I could get some sort of smoothness in the water yet keep the texture in the clouds.
