Day #1088Title: Winter Feeder
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: I spent a very enjoyable half hour this morning watching the birds have their breakfast at my parents’ house. They have a little window next to the stairs which looks out over the back garden and is the perfect spot for watching our feathered friends at the bird table and feeders. I was particularly pleased with this shot of a Great Tit, (Parus major).

Day #1079Title: Afternoon Shadows
Location: White’s Bridge, Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I managed to tear myself away from the office for half an hour this afternoon to catch the lovely long shadows and glancing winter light across the fields at White’s Bridge. A bit of drama in the sky behind was an added bonus.

Day #1016Title: Sundown At White’s Bridge
Location: Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed giving my talk this evening on 1000+ Days of Photography to Upminster Camera Club. On the way to pick up a friend who wanted to come along, I stopped at White’s Bridge to take a quick shot of the setting sun over the Wid Valley.

Day #930 Title: Summer Teasel
Location: Ulting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: Having spent the day at home polishing off various jobs, I went out for a drive this evening to Ulting, intending to photograph the sunset. However, I had slightly miscalculated the position in the sky at this time of year, and didn’t get the shot I wanted. I did find this teasel in flower, however, and as I’m more used to seeing them dried up in the autumn, I thought I would record it for posterity.

Day #924

Day #924 Title: Flatford Window
Location: Flatford Mill
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: We set off home from our weekend in Suffolk and decided to stop off at Flatford on the way past to look at the river and Willy Lott’s Cottage – in the heart of Constable Country. Unfortunately, the weather was less than kind to us (in a torrential sort of way) and so we ended up spending some time in the tea shop and museum sheltering from the downpour. These Geraniums were in a pot on the windowsill inside the Constable Museum. They made a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #34: Through The Window.
