Day #1338 Title: Happy Crates
Location: Staples, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Had to go to Staples today to buy a protractor. I’ve got one in the house somewhere, but just couldn’t find it! Anway, I saw these happy crates and thought they would be good for Treasure Hunt Theme #67 – For Sale.

Day #1337 Title: Peaceful Moorings – August
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I just remembered that I needed to take my monthly scenic shot before the end of the month. So I made a quick trip to Sandford Mill Lock and found this rather cloudy scene.

Day #1336 Title: Blue Sky And Steam
Location: Mangapps Railway Museum – Burnham-on-Crouch
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: More steam again today, this time the big sized stuff at Mangapps Railway Museum with some Chelmsford Flickr friends. The weather was rather variable, eventually we got the sun poking through the clouds long enough for a few shots of the steam service puffing up the line.

Day #1335 Title: Meg Is In Trouble Now
Location: London Colney
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: We enjoyed another fun afternoon at the Geek Steam BBQ at the NLSME track. Lots of geeks, lots of steam and lots of BBQ food. Meg the duck got a bit too keen with the trifle… Alistair looks rather less than impressed!

Day #1334 Title: Calm After The Storm
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: After a heavy rainstorm this afternoon, there was a great rainbow. I rushed back in to get the camera but by the time I had fitted the right lens, it had vanished. However, at least I caught some interesting clouds over to the west.
