This week there have been several occasions when the Manukau Harbour was ever so smooth. Not alway with blue sky, but with nice reflections. I was tempted to submit this picture for the monthly theme of tranquillity — adding that tranquillity also refers to what is excluded, as much as to what is shown. The excluded portion here is the relentless drone of the highway to my right, and if power pylons make your blood boil, you will have to exclude those as well…

    It looks very serene to me; I don’t mind power pylons. I always like water reflections! You have a pleasing composition in this photo.
