Relief - after the rain there is light...
A dramatic glow over Island Bay - bright light breaking through the mist and creating a double rainbow. The rainclouds were still so dense you couldn't see the Orongorongos across the water from Island Bay. A tiny white dot in the sky is an airplane taking off contrasting with the dark of the clouds.
Less than an hour later, as evening falls, a different light.
The pink of sunset colours the sea and the soft cumulus clouds. The dark rainclouds and mist recede over the Orongorongos, now visible. Shadows are muting the beach and hillside, but a ferry leaving Wellington is brightly lit in the much more focused and fading light.
