Day #217

Day #217Title: Sunflower Shadows
Location: Writtle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
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.

Day #194

Day #194Title: Summer Sizzler, 22°
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes:
OK, so I’m being a little sarky with the title. Rain showers and sunny spells outside, me stuck inside doing jobs like cleaning the kitchen. So here’s a pic of my Galileo Thermometer. I realise they have been done before (rather well) by Erasmus T and touchingthelight, but this is my first shot of one this year.
