Beach Weather

April 22, 2017

A lovely balmy Autumn day today, so it was off to the beach we went. On the short drive to Sumner, Christchurch appeared to be an advert for outdoor living in New Zealand. There were people out sailing in the estuary, lots of people walking, skating, running or cycling down the coastal pathway, and then lots of people out surfing or boating, and the rest of us just enjoying wandering up and down the beach eating our ice creams!

Sumner Beach at Dusk

Sumner Beach is a wonderful spot any-time of the day, but for photography it excels in the evening. I always like to shot into the sun and then turn around and shot out of it – for two very different photos.

Shag on a Rock at Sumner Beach

March 7, 2015


Not to be confused with Shag Rock at Sumner Beach, this is a Shag on a Rock at Sumner Beach! It sat there intently for at least 90 minutes (the length of my walk along the beach and ice cream consumption on the way back). It looks like the shag is watching all of the surfers.

I went to Sumner beach today and grabbed myself an ice-cream, dipped my toes in the water and went for a walk between Scarborough and Sumner. A lovely way to spend some of New Year’s Day. Hope you all have a lovely New Year too and a great 2015.

This sculpture is by the beach near Marriner Street in Sumner. It was unveiled this week and is by Christchurch sculptor Chris Reddington. The Christchurch City Council commissioned the sculpture, as part of its Transitional City programme. It has been designed to be sat on and played on.

You can read more about the sculpture and its meaning at the CCC press release about the sculpture.
