Day #364

Day #364Title: Redeye II
Location: Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Spent another chilly but fun day finding geocaches around Beeleigh and Maldon, with a brief, warm respite for lunch in the pub at Heybridge Basin! We ended up at the Thames Barges in Maldon Quay, and this was a bit of a reprise of the location of my May 11th shot, with a twist – of rope, no sun and about 25 degrees colder!

Day #352

Day #352Title: Viva Italia!
Location: Linton, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
I had meetings in Linton and Cambridge today, and it was a lovely blue sky day so I took the camera out with me for five minutes at lunchtime. I found some fairly routine shots of old buildings around Linton, and was resigning myself to using one of those when I happened to see a new little Fiat parked on the street. I first noticed the badge on the front grille, but was stopped in my tracks by this tricoleur on the side – with some great water droplets to add some more texture. The sidelighting was hitting it at just the right angle.

Day #338

Day #338Title: Caution: Rudolfs Crossing
Location: White Roding
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I went to a business networking Christmas Lunch at a very posh country hotel today. On the way, I spotted this sign as I was driving down the A1060, and nearly crashed the car laughing. But there was nowhere to stop, and I would have been late for the meeting. However, on the way back, I managed to find somewhere to pull over and walked back to take the picture. Watch out for Rudolfs on the carriageway!

Day #318

Day #318Title: Dead Ends
Location: Billericay
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I had to run a couple of errands in Billericay today, and came across this road sign, which rather amused me. It was just how I felt after a frustrating day yesterday – sometimes you know that going backwards is the only way forwards, and even that looks a little prickly! Let’s hope today is an improvement.
