Day #217Title: Sunflower Shadows
Location: Writtle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
On my way home from Cambridge the other day, I noticed that the annual field of Pick Your Own sunflowers was growing well, along the A1060 just north of Writtle. This morning, I took a quick trip out there again, with the promise of blue skies. The sun was quite strong, making nice shadows on the sunflower head, and bringing the yellow colour into sharp contrast against the sky. I took some wider shots of the field too, but liked this closeup the best.

  • […] Title: Lovely Llandudno Location: Llandudno Pier, Clwyd Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM Notes: I took a big detour on the way home from Leeds today, visiting the North Wales coast for a couple of days to see some more piers. My first location was the sad sight of the crumbling Colwyn Bay Pier, whose future is about to be decided by a High Court ruling (the council say it’s theirs and want to knock it down, the former bankrupt owner says it’s rightfully his and wants to restore it). The judgement was due this coming Friday (but has been put off yet again), so it was a case of visit quickly in case the decision to pull it down goes ahead! After that, it was a happier location of Llandudno, where the sun came out as you can see here. My final stop for overnight was Bangor where I strolled on the delightful Garth Pier as the sun went down.
