Day #652

Day #652 Title: Crewed By Pigeons
Location: Heybridge Basin, Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a business meeting at lunch time, I decided to stop off for a quick walk at Heybridge Basin to get some fresh air and walk off lunch! The marina was full of colourful boats, but this old wreck in the estuary also caught my eye. It doesn’t look very seaworthy – and only the pigeons dared stand on board.

Day #577

Day #577 Title: Soft Pink
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I was at a bit of a loss as to what to photograph today. I went into town for a meeting this morning but didn’t feel very inspired by anything I saw there. And I knew I wanted to get something in the can while the sun was shining. So in the end, I went with a tried and tested method and wandered around the garden until something took my fancy. Straight out of the camera this looked quite soft anyway, so I thought I would give it a more pronounced Orton treatment.

Day #505

Day #505Title: A Walk In The Park
Location: Wallsend, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another mixed day of  weather. Went for a quick spin in the park to look for a cache but we drew a blank, then it started raining, so we admitted defeat. Not many other options for an image of the day, but I liked the feel of this path with all the frothy cowslips either side.

Day #473

Day #473Title: Spring Green
Location: Garnett’s Wood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: It was another grey afternoon, but I managed to explore the lovely little Garnetts Wood without getting rained on. It was pretty muddy underfoot, but I liked the soft light filtering through the trees. A little Orton served to enhance the dream-like feeling.

Day #447

Day #447Title: Over The Stile
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today was our second Chelmsford Flickr Photowalk, and we had a lovely few hours walking along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation just east of the town centre. Great company and beautiful weather. What more could you ask? This stile also featured in Day #407‘s image – it was under water up to the footplate. I thought the straight shot for today was a little bit ordinary, so I have added a little Orton and some desaturation to evoke the hand-coloured images of the past.
