Day #1460

Day #1460 Title: Don’t Rock The Boat
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a quick impromptu photowalk with a local Flickr friend this morning. We went to Heybridge Basin and on my way back to where I parked, I came across a group of canoeists paddling along the river. No sooner had I turned my back on then than there was much laughing and it turned out one of their number had managed to capsize his boat. They were all giggling madly as they righted the vessel and he crawled back in! Must have been cold, but apparently no harm done. See more shots here.

Day #1458

Day #1458 Title: Peaceful Moorings – December
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: With the month rapidly dwindling, I decided to head to Sandford Mill Lock for my final scenic location shot of the year. The light was rather flat, and I had resigned myself to December’s shot not being particularly interesting when along came a couple of canoes to add some foreground detail. So there it is, Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Scenic Location – December

Day #1444

Day #1444 Title: The Showroom
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: An expensive day: I had to take the car in for its annual MOT and service first thing this morning. It’s a VW Polo with 90K+ miles on the clock, but being a TDi diesel it’s likely to go on forever (or until the rest of it drops to bits). Thankfully it’s not that bad yet – but it does need a few pounds spending on it now – the bill came to several hundreds. On the walk back to the garage to pick it up, I passed the VW Showroom which was trying to tempt me into buying a new shiny – these are sadly several orders of magnitude out of my price bracket at present. So back to my old faithful!

Day #1428

Day #1428 Title: Peaceful Moorings – November
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Almost out of month, I finally managed to get back to Sandford Mill Lock for my scenic location shot. We seem to have gone directly from summer to winter with the trees compared to October’s shot. The light wasn’t great, but I won’t be able to get back there before the month is done, so this will have to do.

Day #1387

Day #1387 Title: Peaceful Moorings – October
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A quick walk along the canal today to take my shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Scenic Location – October. I was a bit disappointed that the trees have still not really turned for autumn here, so decided a mono treatment would work quite nicely.

Day #1370 Title: Bletchley Rollers
Location: Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: As well as the second day of Over The Air today, Bletchley Park was also hosting a vintage car rally. These impressive old ladies were proudly posing outside the main mansion. It was a great venue for a spot of hardware hacking too.

Day #1367 Title: Peaceful Moorings – September
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a very sunny day for the most part, but when I went to go out, the weather had turned rather misty. Still, a different look for my scenic location in September – the leave are beginning to turn. Treasure Hunt Theme #09 – Scenic Location – September.
