Day #1262

Day #1262 Title: Beech Street
Location: Barbican, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: After a very enjoyable impromptu evening in the pub with friends from work, I took a quick snap in the Beech Street tunnel (which runs under the Barbican Centre) as I walked back to Liverpool Street to catch my train.

Day #1170Title: Foggy Evening
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: A busy day catching up after my trip to Newcastle – and the weather was back to the grey cement lid all day. I enjoyed judging at Thurrock Camera Club this evening (a bit of a marathon with over 100 prints!), but enjoyed the drive there and back in the fog less so. It wasn’t until I was nearly home that I realised I hadn’t got an image for the day. So this sums it up!

Day #1116Title: White’s Bridge
Location: Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a morning meeting and some work at home this afternoon, I was surprised to see a promising sunset brewing. I’ve been trying to get this shot at White’s Bridge for three weeks – I’m considering using it as my scenic location for the year – and have photographed it a couple of times already but the light was rubbish so I chose another image for previous days. At last, it all came together today. However, I’m still not sure if I’ll use this scene or the one at Sandon Mill for my monthly shoot – I’ll see how the fit takes me later.

Day #1104Title: Floods At Sunset
Location: Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I wanted to scout out a possible viewpoint for my monthly scenic location, and took a few shots nearby this morning. The river Wid had burst its banks and flooded the surrounding fields and road, so it looked promising. But it was dark and gloomy, and  I went home disappointed. Having had lunch, and got on with some other things, I was just processing some pictures when I looked out the window to see a fine sunset developing. So I jumped in the car and hot-wheeled it back here for another go. I didn’t get the shot I originally came for (the sun was just a bit too low), but I thought this would make a great image for Treasure Hunt Theme  #56 – Water.
