I haven’t presented a new Serenity Sunday photo in about three months, but I’m in that kind of mood today, having slept in and looking forward to a cool, gray day of unpacking and setting up Christmas decorations. For today’s offering, let me take us back twenty years and two weeks. I was driving on the road that runs along the shore of Akaroa Harbour in Banks Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island, and as I passed through the town of Barry’s Bay I had to stop for this view looking out toward the heads that bracket the mouth of the harbour. The tide was in and the water was almost perfectly calm.
This remains one of my all-time favorite photos. The camera was a Pentax PZ-1, the film Tri-X pushed to 800, and the lens a Pentax 28-105. I shot it at 1/500 second and f/11 and used an ultraviolet filter.
