Day #3274Title: Barely There
Location: Galleywood Common, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: This morning was spent running errands. By almost noon I had finished and was on my way home across Galleywood Common when I noticed these feint trees struggling to be seen through the mist and fog which has lingered since dawn. I thought they would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #48 – Midday.

Day #3268Title: Take The Strain
Location: Maldon, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: It promised to be sunny this morning, so I set off to Maldon for a potter along the Quay. It’s usually fertile ground for photography. This morning’s low sun cast these amazing big fat shadows of a chain mooring one of the old Thames Barges to the quayside. It just had to be mono.

Day #3266Title: The Pointless Stile
Location: Great Braxted, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I was out for a walk today with my geocaching friend Ray around the imposing perimeter of Braxted Park. The wall which surrounds the estate is about 3.5miles long. We didn’t walk the whole length, but covered one side which runs alongside a public footpath. At the start was the rather pointless stile – since the main gate is always open, it makes you wonder what purpose the stile actually serves.

Day #3263Title: Misty In Mayland
Location: Mayland, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: The day dawned very foggy and the mist never really lifted all day. I was out on the remote Dengie Peninsula for most of the time, and it hung around eerily across the marshes. These trees provided welcome silhouetted shapes in the foreground.

Day #3262Title: Global Vision
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: A while back, I bought this tiny marble, with the continents etched onto the surface. It’s been sitting on my prop shelf since then. Today I thought it was about time I dusted it off and made a picture for Treasure Hunt Theme #37 – Globe. I also had to dust off the 5D and 100mm macro lens, which I haven’t used in ages.

Day #3251Title: A Posh Address
Location:  Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I was back in London again today, for the final wrap-up meeting of my recent BBC project. This posh letterbox is one I have passed numerous times over the past few weeks. It always strikes me as rather fancy!

Day #3249Title: I Can’t Decide
Location:  Heckfordbridge, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I embarked on a very long geocaching walk today, taking a circular route from Copford to Heckfordbridge and back. Half way round I spotted this landscape scene. When I was processing it at home, I really couldn’t decide if I preferred it in mono or colour. So I just gave in and did both!
