Day #363

Posted by Caz on Sunday, 28th December 2008

Day #363Title: Croxton’s Mill
Location: Little Waltham
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: It was a sunny day, but bitterly cold for most of it. Nevertheless, Alistair and I set out for a day’s geocaching mission around Little Waltham and Broomfield. The Nature Reserve is a lovely place to walk and for the most part, the sun shone. By the time we had completed the caches here, the light was beginning to fade and it was freezing. But we then headed south to Galleywood to look for a special 500 Finds Geocoin in one of my cache hides, as it was Alistair’s 500th geocache. Can’t imagine how that got there. Not that he’s an addict, or anything ;-)

Day #359

Day #359Title: Dusk At Dry Dock
Location: Wivenhoe Quay
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I drove over to stay with my parents for Christmas, and managed a quick walk around the Quay area of Wivenhoe before the light disappeared compeletely. Yes, I know it doesn’t look very dry. But as previously explained, it’s the name of the place.

Day #353

Day #353Title: Ceiling Details
Location: Chelmsford Cathedral
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a few minutes to spare while in Chelmsford this morning, so took the opportunity to have a quick look inside the Cathedral. I’d never set foot in the place before, but having seen some photos of the interior recently on Flickr, I decided it was worth a visit. I love the ceiling pattern.

Day #350

Day #350Title: Avenue Of Steel
Location: Liverpool Street, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a meeting in Maldon this morning, and took a few grey, damp shots on my way home, but I wasn’t particularly happy with them. So when I went to London for another meeting this evening, I took the camera along. My friend showed me a new building just behind Exchange Square at Liverpool Street, which has some dramatic architecture and was trimmed up for Christmas. It’s a great place for photos, and no “jobsworthy” security guards in sight!

Day #348

Day #348Title: Citypoint Evening
Location: Moorgate
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: An utterly foul day, weatherwise, today. It rained and rained. In the evening, I was in London for the BBC Backstage Christmas party, held for the London web dev community. It was a short walk from Liverpool Street, but a damp one! This was just outside Citypoint. I took some others without people in, but just liked the way this couple accidentally walked into the frame, huddling under their brolly.

Day #334

Day #334Title: Cutting Edge
Location: Sheffield
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: The morning dawned cold and foggy, and by evening it was back to that too. But for an hour or so in the early afternoon, the sun came out and I was able to dash out for a few photos close to the BarCampSheffield2 venue. This sculpture, Cutting Edge, is located on the pedestrian walkway from the main Railway station and the sun was hitting it in just the right angle for a good picture. We went out geocaching later on, and I got some atmospheric dusk fog shots too, but I still liked this one best for today’s image.

Day #322

Posted by Caz on Monday, 17th November 2008

Day #322Title: Boreham House
Location: Boreham, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had to pop over to the Parcel Force depot in Boreham this morning to pick up a package, and took the opportunity to stop at Boreham house for a quick picture. I liked the muted tones of the day and thought sepia suited the mood rather well. Compare this with Ken’s version of the same location from a few weeks ago!
