TRANSITION

Which technically (o, ye pedantic old poop!) could well mean in the strictly photographic sense of colours and shades; dark to light and vice-reversa.

Or maybe not …

Taken in spring, during the transition from the challenge of the cold blustery days of winter in Invercargill to the cold blustery days of summer (there’s also an implied transition in the permanent positioning of those gates but I’ll leave it for you to figure).

Popping it with a pin made no difference (most times) proving that some transitions can be permanent.
