Day #715

Day #715 Title: Fingers Of Frost
Location: Noak Bridge Nature Reserve, Basildon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: We had a very heavy frost overnight, and in some places,  it hung around all day where the sun didn’t shine. I had to take the car for an MOT and service early this morning, and spent some time in Gloucester Park and Noak Bridge Nature Reserve in Basildon while I was waiting for it. These leaves were in a dim corner of the Nature Reserve and were still perfectly preserved with their icy coating.

Day #651 Title: Autumn Shadows
Location: Chelmer Park
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a beautifully crisp autumn morning and the weather forecast promised cloud later on, so I made the effort to go out for a quick walk first thing this morning. I have photographed these trees before, but they seem to have gained a lot of foliage since June. I’m sure it won’t take them long to lose it again.

Day #650 Title: Autumn Decay
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I went to visit Mum & Dad for lunch today, and had a wander around their garden. They have a large selection of Hostas on the patio, which are now sadly looking a little the worse for Autumn. Interesting shapes and patterns though.
