Day #3280Title: Festive Berries
Location: South Woodham Ferrers, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: I spotted these festive berries on a hawthorn bush I was frisking while looking for a geocache.. It had seme fearsome thorns, so I had to treat it with respect. But eventually I found the cache, then photographed the berries – two jobs done for the price of one!

Day #3279Title: Shake A Feather
Location: Wickford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: These feathers, rather curiously, were stuck in a fence post at the entrance to a park in Wickford. They looked rather sad and bedraggled, but curiously attractive.

Day #3278Title: Caressed By Brambles
Location: Crays Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I spotted this wonderfully crusty old barn while out on a walk in Crays Hill today. It was begging for a photograph! At least it provides a splash of colour on the shortest day of the year, which was otherwise grey and dreary.

Day #3277Title: Ready For Ignition
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: My car went in for its MOT and annual service last Thursday. I’ve only just got it back! It’s been an expensive and traumatic few days. Until now, the rest of my Christmas preparation has been on hold, pending getting it back and seeing how much is left in the pot for pressies.

Day #3276Title: Unpalatable
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Friends who went to America recently brought me back these gifts. Hmmm. I’m not a great fan of American chocolate at the best of times, but this bar really is pretty unpalatable. I can’t bring myself to open it. However, it makes a good prop for Treasure Hunt Theme #42 – In The News. He’s barely been out of the news during 2016, and I suspect it will only get worse during 2017.

Day #3275Title: Home Sweet Home
Location: Hadleigh Country Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: Today I went to Hadleigh Country Park to do a spot of bramble clearance with some geocaching friends (another “Cache In, Trash Out” event). Afterwards I had a walk in the park to pick up a few more caches. I knew this one was in a bird box, and had had the foresight to bring along my little blue tit sitting on its tiny bird box peg, to set up this shot to play with scale. (Here are some others I’ve done in the past). I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #17 – Bird Bath Or Box.
