Day #363

Day #363Title: Croxton’s Mill
Location: Little Waltham
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: It was a sunny day, but bitterly cold for most of it. Nevertheless, Alistair and I set out for a day’s geocaching mission around Little Waltham and Broomfield. The Nature Reserve is a lovely place to walk and for the most part, the sun shone. By the time we had completed the caches here, the light was beginning to fade and it was freezing. But we then headed south to Galleywood to look for a special 500 Finds Geocoin in one of my cache hides, as it was Alistair’s 500th geocache. Can’t imagine how that got there. Not that he’s an addict, or anything 😉

Day #327

Day #327Title: Down By The Pond
Location: Writtle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I spent a lovely day exploring various parts of the 22-mile footpath, the Centenary Circle, which rings Chelmsford. It was pretty cold and windy, but the sun was out most of the time and I got some great pictures. In fact, I had trouble choosing which image to use as The One for the day. The duck pond at Writtle won.

Day #323

Day #323Title: On The Right Track
Location: Aldham, Near Marks Tey
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a lunchtime meeting in Marks Tey today, and so set off a little bit early to have a quick walk and look for a couple of caches. To begin with, the weather wasn’t very promising, but on my way back to the car, the sun poked through the clouds for a couple of seconds and I was able to capture this view with wonderful light.

Day #283

Day #283Title: Sandford Mill Reflections
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: One of the joys of being a freelancer is being able to arrange your working hours to suit yourself. Having been stuck behind my desk all day yesterday, I had a productive morning today, and so decided to bunk off for an hour or so this afternoon – I needed to go out to buy more printer ink anyway – so I took a walk along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation at Sandford Lock. It was a wonderfully sunny afternoon with a light wind and blue sky. These narrowboats were begging to have their picture taken!
