Day #1074

Day #1074Title: Fiery Sky
Location: Great Notley Country Park
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a meeting in Braintree this afternoon, I was on my way home when I noticed there was a rather interesting sunset going on. So I stopped off at the Discovery Centre to make a few images. Unfortunately, I only got a couple of sunset shots, but was just a bit too late to make anything really interesting. By the time I climbed the hill to the Kestrel it was all but sunk below the horizon.

Day #1020Title: Missed The Boat
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Visiting Mum and Dad this afternoon, and almost too late I realised there was a nice sunset going on. So I jumped in the car and raced down to the Quay in Wivenhoe to see if I could get a shot or two. Sadly, I think I missed the boat – it was pretty much over by the time I got to somewhere which was an interesting foreground.

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 #984 Title: Tràigh Siar, Bhatarsaigh
Location: Vatersay
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After leaving my little cottage on North Uist, I headed south for the ferry from Eriskay to the island of Barra. It promised to be a beautiful sunset once I arrived, and having consulted the map, I headed for West Beach on Vatersay (joined to Barra by a causeway). I wasn’t disappointed – the clouds parted and the Atlantic rolled in along with a sea mist, giving my a great atmospheric shot.

Day #975 Title: Flakey II
Location: Carlisle
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Day one of my holidays! I spent most of it driving, but managed a quick walk in the centre of Carlisle as the light was looking rather nice. Flakey paint on a old door attracted my attention. I thought it made a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #19 – Dilapidation/decay.
