Day #365

Day #365Title: Frosted Fern
Location: Hylands Park
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: The sun shone for most of the day. But with little or no wind to speak of, it seemed warmer than yesterday, even though there was frost on the ground for most of the time. Delaying work for as long as possible, I went to Hylands Park with Alistair to look for another couple of geocaches. The gardens were rather wintry, and this poor fern looked like it could do with a bit of sun on its leaves!

Day #328

Day #328Title: Icebergs
Location: Hylands Park
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: We had a pathetic covering of snow first thing this morning, which soon turned to sleet and then melted. After lunch, things perked up a bit and the sun came out, so I made a quick excursion to Hylands Park for a walk to see if I could get any photos. There’s a pond in the middle which still had large chunks of ice floating on top, despite the weather actually feeling warmer today than it did when I was out on my trek yesterday. But that could have been down to the thermal long-johns I was wearing!

Day #184

Day #184Title: Red Sky At Night…
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 75-300mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: For the most part, it was another grey, miserable day. So I stayed indoors and nursed my poor, bruised knees. However, by about 8pm, there was a chink of light coming through the clouds, and I decided to go to the Common for a hobble round. I got a few fairly mundane shots in the woods and grasslands, and then returned to my favourite spot overlooking the Wid Valley to watch the sunset. I was rewarded with a great Red Sky At Night just over Hylands House, which is lurking in the shadows at the bottom.
