Day #1090

Posted by Caz on Saturday, 25th December 2010

Day #1090Title: Christmas Vista
Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a leisurely breakfast and putting the bird in the oven, we decided to take a walk around the countryside. The snow was still laying quite thick on the ground, even if the roads were very icy. This was a view across the Elham Valley from the hills to the north. After a bit of yomping about we returned home to prepare the veg and welcome some more guests to the party.

Day #1076Title: The Broken Tree
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Despite some reasonable light today, I seemed unable to get any decent images. It just wasn’t happening. This was taken on a walk to scout some locations for next year’s Scenic Location monthly shot, but I wasn’t enamoured with any of them, to be honest.

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 #1045

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 #1033Title: Woodland Diversion
Location: Chieveley, Berkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Alistair and I headed down to the West Country for BathCamp today and had a little pit stop on the M4 in Berkshire along the way. We decided to bag a couple of nearby caches – this was the walk along the bridleway to the first one.
