Day #728 Title: Ice Breaker
Location: Little Waltham Nature Reserve
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: Our Chelmsford Flickr group took a walk in the Nature Reserve at Little Waltham this morning. There was plenty of frost about, and ice lingering in some of the pools and rivers. This stretch of ice held our attention for a while.

Day #715

Day #715 Title: Fingers Of Frost
Location: Noak Bridge Nature Reserve, Basildon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: We had a very heavy frost overnight, and in some places,  it hung around all day where the sun didn’t shine. I had to take the car for an MOT and service early this morning, and spent some time in Gloucester Park and Noak Bridge Nature Reserve in Basildon while I was waiting for it. These leaves were in a dim corner of the Nature Reserve and were still perfectly preserved with their icy coating.

Day #713 Title: Green And Pleasant
Location: Tiptree Heath
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I dodged the showers today and managed to find a few geocaches. This was the last one on my list, on Tiptree Heath, a location I had driven by many times but never bothered to stop before.

Day #672

Day #672 Title: Filtered Sunlight
Location: Hanningfield Reservoir
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Despite a different forecast, the weather was beautifully sunny first thing, so I decided to nip out for a quick walk in the nature reserve at Hanningfield Reservoir. It proved to be an excellent diversionary tactic from doing the filing at home, albeit temporary!

Day #668

Day #668 Title: On The Forest Floor
Location: High Wood, Pilgrims’ Hatch
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I managed another quick walk this afternoon and found these fungi growing in High Wood. I thought they would suit this week’s 52Themes2009 subject, Macro.
