Day #1067Title: London Hill – December
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The final shot in my year-long visit to London Hill for Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Scenic Location. And what could be more fitting than weather to echo the snows from January?

Day #911 Title: Jasmine Flowers
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I make no apology that I seem to be going through a bit of a flower/macro phase at the moment. I’m really enjoying using the 60mm macro lens, and this time of year there is plenty of naturally beautiful things at which to point it! This is one of the little fragrant Jasmine flowers which cover the arch over my back gate. They have just started to bloom since the weekend. The smell is wonderful, and reminds me that Summer is here at last! A great addition for the Treasure Hunt Theme 44 – Things I Love Or Hate.

Day #910 Title: London Hill – June
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I realised in a bit of a panic that I hadn’t taken June’s shot of London Hill. So I popped out this evening to rectify the situation. Thought I would give it a bit of Orton, just to be different. I remembered how vicious the nettles are, so dressed appropriately this time!

Day #903

Day #903 Title: Resting On A Thistle
Location: Port Holme Meadow, Godmanchester
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I drove Alistair back to Huntingdon to pick up his car from the garage today, and after dropping him off I took a quick walk along the river Ouse at Godmanchester. This rather obliging butterfly was resting on a thistle. The 60mm macro lens was rather effective. I think it’s a Large Skipper. And it makes a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #46 – Small Creature.

Day #875 Title: London Hill – May
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I realised today that I was beginning to run out of May for this month’s London Hill shot. So this afternoon, I ventured forth in the baking sun to see what I could get. The weather had obviously brought out the Convertible crowd, as this Vauxhall shows. I can’t believe how much the vegetation has grown in five weeks – and was beginning to regret wearing cut off trousers and sandals when I saw the nettles by the verge! Still, I managed to find a sting-free location to stand for the shot. Treasure Hunt Theme 5 – Scenic Location – May.

Day #859

Day #859 Title: Gently Steaming
Location: Liverpool Street Station, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: On my way into work this morning, I was lucky enough to catch 70013 Oliver Cromwell simmering in Platform 5 at Liverpool Street, before it headed off to a Bury St Edmunds with a special steam rail tour. Nice to see a bit of history against the modern station. Makes a great find for Treasure Hunt Theme 37: Machinery, too.
