Day #2181Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – December
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: With the promise of some late winter sunshine after all the recent rain, I chose today to take a final visit to my monthly scenic location at Sandford Mill Footbridge. The river is very high right now, with the flow swirling under the bridge as I crossed. It completes my Treasure Hunt #12 – Once A Month – December.

Day #2176Title: Slinky Links
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from LHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from RHS, through Stofen diffuser @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from above/behind through Softbox diffuser @ 1/16
Notes: I found a colourful slinky in the shops the other day. It’s been a grotty wet day so I decided to bring some colour to the day. It also makes a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #66 – Spirals.

Day #2168Title: Owl Butterfly Feeding
Location: Tropical Wings, South Woodham Ferrers
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Checking down the list of Treasure Hunt Themes the other day, I realised I still hadn’t yet taken anything for #48 – The Insect World. I knew I wasn’t going to fulfill it easily with wild insect subjects at this time of year, so I took a little trip to Tropical Wings this afternoon and spent a very sticky, humid hour in their Butterfly House, chasing specimens. There were several different species flitting about between the plants. This obliging Owl Butterfly sat very still for me, while sucking the juices from fermenting fruit which had been put out for them to feed on.

Day #2166

Day #2166Title: Alone On Old Street
Location: Old Street, London
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: Simple geometry at Old Street roundabout, just as seen. I thought it would represent Treasure Hunt Theme #16 – Solitude rather well.

Day #2156Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – November
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: Time for another visit to Sandford Mill Footbridge for my monthly shot. For a bit of variety, I took along some of my light painting toys to play with at dusk. Some of the pictures weren’t too bad, but the serendipitous passing of a cyclist across the bridge during one of my 30 second exposures turned out to be the best of the lot!

Day #2133Title: Rockets Reflected
Location: Lake Meadows, Billericay
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A cold and windy evening out today, at the firework display in Billericay with a friend from the Chelmsford Flickr group. We got a grand spot across the water from the crowd (having pulled some strings with the organisers). This meant there was plenty of opportunity for reflections of the fireworks too. So today you get rockets the right way up and upside down. Another image for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Upside Down. See more pictures from the evening.

Day #2103Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – October
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I know it’s less than 10 days since I’ve been to Sandford Mill for my September shot on Day #2094, but having a willing accomplice and a couple of newly purchased rainbow umbrellas, I thought I would make the most of the opportunity for October. Thanks to Alistair for posing with the brollies! Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Once A  Month October.
