Day #3391Title: Iron-Clad Tree
Location: Noak Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This curious iron-clad tree was one I spotted during a little bike ride to find some geocaches today. I’m not sure if the metalwork was supposed to keep the tree together, it looked rather odd but has clearly been like that for many years.

Day #3375Title: Mirror On The World
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I walked into Chelmsford today to run a few errands. The steely grey sky was a good foil for the aluminium skin on the Sally Army Citadel and tree reflected in the window along Parkway. And then a grey car came along too! Perfect.

Day #3363Title: Brûlée
Location: Foxton, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had to go to Cambridgeshire today to run an errand and took the opportunity to take a walk to find some more geocaches around the village of Foxton. At one point there was a burned tree trunk by the side of the path, and the charcoal-like bark caught my attention.

Day #3356Title: Bark Beetle Galleries
Location: High Roding, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I had a great walk around the footpaths of High Roding today, looking for a few caches. One was the wrong side of a ditch filled with water, so we had to make an impromptu bridge from a sturdy branch which we found nearby. It had these enigmatic patterns in the bark – which I have since learned are called galleries and made by Bark Beetles. To my eye, they look like weird alien art!

Day #3349Title: Spring Under The Old Oak
Location: Fryerning, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby 5.8mm Fisheye
Notes: It was a lovely sunny day but it took me ages to get off my backside and get out. I went crocus hunting in Fryerning and found the usual impressive patch below the big old oak tree on Church Green.

Day #3299

Day #3299Title: At The Boundary
Location: Terling, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I met a friend for a belated birthday tea and cake at a local coffee shop this morning. We hatched a plan to find a few geocaches afterwards, the last couple were in Terling. By the time we got there, the squally showers of earlier had passed and the sun had come out. This is the cricket pitch, a lovely well-manicured patch of grass. The bench must be a nice spot to sit and watch a game during the summer. Too cold to linger today, though!
