Day #3348Title: Don’t Spill A Drop
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlite
Notes: I had a frustrating session in the studio today trying to photograph splashes. I was using a different liquid mixture to before, which should have provided a bigger splash, but the kit just wasn’t working as I expected and all I was getting were pathetic little collisions (if anything). Then I started feeling a bit unwell, so gave up. This will have to do – pleasant enough, but not what I was trying to achieve. I will have to have another go in due course.

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.
