Day #3396

Posted by Caz on Tuesday, 18th April 2017

Day #3396Title: Dark Skies And Looming Clouds
Location: Woodbridge, Suffolk
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a great day out geocaching around Woodbridge today. It’s not somewhere I had visited much in the past, but there were plenty of boxes to search for. This landscape was enhanced by the dramatic cloudscape above.

Day #3387Title: Down By The Jetty
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s Dad’s birthday so I went over to visit my parents in Wivenhoe today. We had a nice lunch and plenty of the usual family chit chat. On my way home, I stopped off at the Quay for a quick walk to find some pictures. The tide was out but I found this rather forlorn looking kayak moored on the end of a pontoon overlooking the jetty, beached on the mud. The low sun brought out the best in the scene.

Day #3372Title: Whispy Clouds And Branches
Location: Langdon Hills Country Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today’s outing was to the Langdon Hills Country Park for a great geocaching walk. The sun shone and the wispy clouds provided some interest against the silhouetted trees.

Day #3369Title: Terrible News From The TV
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: I had been debating whether to go into the office at Westminster today or just do my meeting by phone. In the end, I chose to work form home and once the news of the terrorist attack around the Houses of Parliament broke early this afternoon, I was very glad to be sitting on my sofa watching events unfold on the TV, instead of stuck inside a building very close to the action. Later on, I noticed a blood red sunset happening across the rooftops. With the TV aerials prominently in the frame and ominous clouds behind, it looked like an apocalyptic warning. It also makes a suitable shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #22 – Chimney(s).

Day #3368Title: Snaking Away
Location: Hockley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I made the most of the sunshine today and took myself off for a walk around Hockley Woods. One path lead me around the outskirts where I had this view across the fields. I loved the curvy tracks, snaking away into the distance. It seemed to cry out for the mono treatment.

Day #3343

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 #3298

Day #3298Title: A Grey Day On The Kent Marshes
Location: Swanscombe, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I haven’t been on a decent geocaching walk for a while, so I planned one with a couple of friends today. We went to Swanscombe just the other side of the Thames in Kent. The weather wasn’t as sunny as the forecast promised, but at least we didn’t get wet. The scenery was marshy with a bit of industrial thrown in. This splendid collection of pylons caught my eye as a perfect fit for Treasure Hunt Theme #51 – Power Lines. The one on the far left is actually huge – it forms one of a pair (the other one is on the Essex side of the Thames) which supports cables spanning the river.
