Day #1461 Title: Tree Climbing
Location: Chelmer Park
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: Alistair and I had great fun today looking for geocaches. The first we found was in a local park – I spotted it up the tree and Alistair went climbing to retrieve it. He loves climbing trees, so didn’t mind at all. Teamwork! We also went for a long walk near Maldon and bagged a load more – finishing after dark. But it was all good fun. A great way to end the year.

Day #1460 Title: Don’t Rock The Boat
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a quick impromptu photowalk with a local Flickr friend this morning. We went to Heybridge Basin and on my way back to where I parked, I came across a group of canoeists paddling along the river. No sooner had I turned my back on then than there was much laughing and it turned out one of their number had managed to capsize his boat. They were all giggling madly as they righted the vessel and he crawled back in! Must have been cold, but apparently no harm done. See more shots here.

Day #1459 Title: I See Stars
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I had a new tripod for Christmas, and today was the firs time I had an opportunity to play with it properly. I love the colours of the decorations on my Christmas tree, and so decided to take some long exposure shots of it. These stars are part of the tinsel garland which is wrapped around it.

Day #1458 Title: Peaceful Moorings – December
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: With the month rapidly dwindling, I decided to head to Sandford Mill Lock for my final scenic location shot of the year. The light was rather flat, and I had resigned myself to December’s shot not being particularly interesting when along came a couple of canoes to add some foreground detail. So there it is, Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Scenic Location – December

Day #1456 Title: A Doggie’s Eye View
Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: There was a gathering of the locals in the town square this morning, many of whom had their dogs with them. A low viewpoint helped to emphasise the dog’s view of the world. I thought this would make a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #32 – Dogs And Their Owners (Look Alike).

Day #1455 Title: A Christmas Walk
Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: It was a bit of a grey morning, but we decided to go for an hour’s walk around the local countryside before returning to prep the vegetables for Christmas dinner. This was a view just as we were reaching the end of our trek, having come up the path and looking back over the valley.
