Day #2533Title: There And Back
Location: Heybridge Basin, Maldoin
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: After more decorating at home, I decided to head out to catch a few last rays of sunshine this afternoon. Initially I pottered around Great Baddow Churchyard but eventually ended up at a favourite spot, Heybridge Basin. After a cup of tea in the pub to warm up (I was driving…) I mooched about on the sea wall and spotted these odd tracks in the mud, for Treasure Hunt Theme #14 – Animal Tracks.

Day #2532Title: Still At Springfield Lock
Location: Springfield Lock, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: The first of the twelve locks along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation from Chelmsford to Heybridge Basin is at Springfield. It’s the last one I’ve photographed for my monthly location shots, looking still and quiet in the late afternoon sunshine. I wonder what it would have looked like in its heyday – way before these modern flats were built alongside. Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Once A Month – December.
