Day #2150

Day #2150Title: Autumn Trunks
Location: Epping Forest
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: After another wet start, the day perked up so Alistair and I set off for a quick explore of Epping Forest. We had a wander among the shedding trees and found some lovely landscapes, as well as a geocache in the undergrowth. After a cup of tea and slice of cake, we then headed home. It was good to get out at least for a few hours.

Day #2123Title: Two Conkers On A Bench
Location: Norsey Wood, Billericay
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I visited another local woodland this afternoon in search of more autumnal subjects. I happened across these two shiny conkers on a bench, they must have been where they fell. I loved their contrasting colour with the the green and brown of the wood.
