Day #217

Day #217Title: Sunflower Shadows
Location: Writtle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
On my way home from Cambridge the other day, I noticed that the annual field of Pick Your Own sunflowers was growing well, along the A1060 just north of Writtle. This morning, I took a quick trip out there again, with the promise of blue skies. The sun was quite strong, making nice shadows on the sunflower head, and bringing the yellow colour into sharp contrast against the sky. I took some wider shots of the field too, but liked this closeup the best.

Day #132Title: Redeye
Location: Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent the afternoon at a friend’s house in Witham, and realised it was only a stone’s throw from Maldon via the back roads, so I made a detour to the Hythe on my way home. An old Thames barge was coming up the Blackwater to moor and I tracked its progress as the tide brought it upstream. I took plenty of regular pictures, but this one stood out as something a bit different, so that’s why I chose it for today.

Day #109Title: Colour Clash
Location: At the supermarket
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Not much time today, and less inspiration. The weather was cold and grey. By late afternoon, I could put it off no longer and venutred out to do the shopping – touble was, I left it ’til after the kids were out of school, so the supermarket was bedlam. That’ll teach me. This was a quick grab shot of a colourful bunch of flowers in the shop. Although I liked them, they were frightfully expensive, and not my colour scheme. At least a photo is free!

Day #106

Day #106Title: Fields Of Gold
Location: Brook Farm, Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Had a quick drive around south of Galleywood and north of West Hanningfield at lunchtime, when the sun was out for a while. Some Oilseed Rape crops must have been planted early as they are already flowering round there. I know some people aren’t too keen on this crop, but it does provide a splash of colour in the landscape for us photographers!
