Chelmsford Photowalk #22

Posted by Caz on Sunday, 28th November 2010

The end of the month saw temperatures plummet. Before the snow really set in, I was able to go for a photowalk around Galleywood Common and the Canal at Ulting to catch a few frosty pictures.

Being as it was on the right day, but no-one else came, I’m still calling this a Chelmsford Photowalk! I did bump into another friend from Ingatestone Camera Club on the canal towpath, so two people = photowalk in my book!

Judging In Sussex

Posted by Caz on Friday, 19th November 2010

Steyning Camera Club invited me to judge one of their print competitions this month. They must have thought I was worth my fee – it was quite a long way to travel, but I was graciously put up overnight by Flickr friend and Club Programme Secretary Malcolm and his wife.

My performance seemed to go down well (having been doing it for 10 years, I should know what I’m talking about by now!). Anyway, I had many positive comments after the event. I may even have an engagement at Brighton & Hove Camera Club forthcoming in future, who knows!

The next morning, I was able to meet up with fellow serial 365-er Ken Scott to catch up over tea and a bacon sarnie. We also went for a stroll around the River Adur in Shoreham and took a few images in mediocre light, before the rain set in:

October ’10 Review

Posted by Caz on Monday, 1st November 2010

As promised in the round up of my Scottish trip, I managed to get my Hebridean Landscapes book put together and published this month, so I’m very pleased with progress!

Photographically it was all a bit slow apart from a great autumn weekend in Bath at the end of the month. However, a few shots which stood out during the rest of the month were these:

The Deceiver

The Deceiver

Pavement Abstract was a strong candidate for Day #1023. It was taken after a heavy storm in London, whilst I was walking around Lincoln’s Inn Fields. The sun came out and the pavement shone.

The Deceiver was found in the woods on Galleywood Common one day when I went out on a fungi hunt on Day #1025 – apparently it’s edible!

I also spent a pleasant, if cold, Saturday in Great Notley Country Park looking for some geocaches and taking pictures. The image I chose for Day #1027 was specifically for one of my Treasure Hunt themes (which must be pic of the day), but I actually like this one better, pictorially speaking:

And this image is a closeup of the plaques around the base of the kestrel, given some toning treatments in Photoshop:
