October Review

Posted by Caz on Saturday, 15th November 2008

On and off, we had some reasonable weather during October, if my monthly pictures are anything to go  by. There were also bad days, but these were a few images which could have been photo of the day:

Don’t you love the way the light caught the carving on this headstone in Sandon Churchyard [left] on Day #275? This bright red Acer leaf [right] was a strong contender on Day #288 as I pottered around in my garden.

I’ve also been doing a lot of Geocaching during October, which gives me the perfect excuse to visit locations nearby. I always take the camera with me and have often got a great photo of the day out of the expedition. I’ve been back to some places I know well, and visited others which otherwise, I would not have bothered with.

This lovely image of a wooden viaduct over the Blackwater [left], just south of Witham is a case in point. Sure, if you look on a map, it says there’s a viaduct there. But it gives no clue what a great location it is until you visit. Apparently, the viaduct is of national importance and is one of only a few wooden ones left in the country.

I found these thirsty cows [right] lurking by the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation during a caching trip. They looked at me. I looked at them. Then we both minded our own business!
