Day #1740

Day #1740 Title: Green Tranquility
Location: Wickham Bishops
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm f/1.7
Notes: Today was a little more overcast, but we managed to avoid any rain during our geocaching walk. This is the lovely little wooden viaduct across the River Blackwater just south of Witham, which used to support the Witham to Maldon branch line before Dr Beeching’s axe fell. I love the peacefulness of this location – which we last visited (again on a geocaching mission) on Day #564.

Day #1713

Day #1713 Title: A Flash Of Autumn Colour
Location: Kenroku-en Gardens, Kanazawa, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today we moved on to Kanazawa on the northern coast of Japan. The famous Kenroku-en Gardens, one of Japan’s top three,  are just one of the attractions of this lovely old town. I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours wandering around amongst the cool greenery, finding quiet spots and inspirational views around every corner. This is the famous two-legged Kotojitoro Lantern, symbol of Kanazawa. I thought it would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #66 – Balance. Read more about my day.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
