Day #933

Day #933 Title: The Heart Of The Matter
Location: Writtle College
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I went to a networking event at Writtle College today and was invited to wander around their very well-kept gardens afterwards. They are renowned as a teaching college specialising in agriculture and horticulture. Alan Titchmarsh was one of their patrons from 2001-2004. I thought this lovely rose would make a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #69 – Elegant.

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.

Day #907 Title: Lesser Stitchwort
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: After a long day in front of the computer, I took a quick walk on Galleywood Common this evening. I found all sorts of little flowers which are easily missed unless you look hard. I’ve photographed Greater Stitchwort on Day #862, but this little fellow, about 10mm across, is the Lesser variety. I had to get down on hands and knees to get close enough for this shot.

Day #873

Day #873 Title: Centrepiece
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I spent a very hot day in the garden, mowing foot-high grass and hacking down the weeds. But I found time to take a few pictures along the way. This flower on the Clematis Montana is pretty much straight out of camera. I used the 60mm macro lens to go in close.
