Day #1089Title: Bauble Reflections
Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I was the first to arrive at my friend Julian’s for our Christmas weekend, having managed to get to his picturesque Kent village without too much trouble on the roads. We enjoyed a cuppa and a chat in the conservatory whilst waiting for the other arrivals. I looked up from my seat and saw this.

Day #1057Title: Illuminations
Location: Ipswich
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I spent an enjoyable evening having dinner with a couple of friends in Ipswich. The Town Hall was just next to the restaurant, and has had its Christmas decorations installed recently. It looked quite pretty as they changed colour every few seconds.

Day #1054Title: In A Fog Of Obscurity
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I’m afraid the weather was a pretty good reflection of how I felt today. Woolly and washed out, this was the view from the window this morning. And it’s not much better now. I was supposed to be going out this evening, but I’ve decided to just stay at home and have an early night. As Dai points out, we’ve been doing rather a lot recently, so I hope it’s just tiredness rather than me coming down with the lurgy!

Day #1045Title: Hylands House
Location: Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I’ve been meaning to photograph Hylands House for months, for the Treasure Hunt Theme #75 – Your Nearest Tourist Attraction, but there was always a good excuse or better shot elsewhere. It’s a mere 1.3 miles from my house, as the crow flies. Today, there was some brilliant sunshine promised – I just had to wait about half an hour for it to break through the clouds. I think I was well rewarded. The magnificent early Georgian building was built in 1730 and is open to the public on limited days, but the 574 acres of parkland are open throughout the year. It’s best avoided during August, however, when there are tens of thousands of music lovers who descend on the park for the annual V Festival. It also takes a few weeks to prepare the park beforehand, and clear it up again afterwards!

Day #1042Title: Holbeck Urban Village
Location: Leeds
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: After Leeds Hack had finished, we headed back to our friend’s place to stay for the evening. The quickest way is to walk along the tow path of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. A little way along, you get this view back towards Holbeck Urban Village (one of the generous sponsors of Leedshack, as it happens). They run a scheme to regenerate the area of the city south of the canal. I love the reflection in the water.
