Day #3347Title: Lichen Archipelago
Location: Little Baddow, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This morning promised to be sunnier than the afternoon, so I headed out for a quick walk around the footpaths near Sandford Mill Lock to find a geocache. It was at a metal bridge over the Canal, which is wonderfully crusty – lots of peeling paint layers and plenty of lichen and rust. I homed in on a small area to get the best textures.

Day #3346Title: Descent Into Mud
Location: Heybridge Basin, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: I haven’t been to Heybridge Basin for a while, but visited this afternoon with a friend. The sea lock is being renovated and the lock gates are being replaced, so the lock was drained, which revealed this thick gloopy mud at the bottom.

Day #3345Title: The Angel & The Organ
Location: Finchingfield, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went to Finchingfield this afternoon, for a wander around with a visiting friend. We had a look inside the church, where I spotted the pipes on the rather fine organ in all their splendour.

Day #3344Title: A Pint At The Woolie
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I took my friend Julian to my favourite pub this afternoon, as he is visiting for the weekend. We enjoyed a pint of real ale but didn’t have time for the sausages and mash they serve there. Oh well, perhaps another time.

Day #3343Title: The Clouds Are Looming
Location: Bocking Church Street, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I went looking for a few geocaches around Bocking Church Street and other little villages north of Braintree today. The sun was in and out, and the grey clouds moved sluggishly across the sky. I managed to catch a patch of sunshine on the fields here.

Day #3342Title: There’s Always A Lamp
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Lots more jobs to do today, confined to home. With Storm Doris about, I’m glad I didn’t have to go out anywhere. It got to later this evening and I still hadn’t made a picture, so I turned to my new lamp – There’s Always A Lamp. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #42 – Lamplight.

Day #3341Title: Amplitude
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Another day mainly doing jobs at home. I decided I should have another play with my lightpainting gear this evening – having just bought a 2m x 2m black fluffy throw to use as a totally dark background this afternoon. I can now set up the camera in the bedroom (the longest room in the house which I can make totally dark) and waft away with my torches and lights, even if the weather is cold and wet outside. This one was made with my LED fibre optic lamp, which changes colour gradually over a period of 10-20 seconds.
