Day #2227

Day #2227Title: Little Baddow Lock
Location: Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: Having seen the weather forecast, I realised today might be the last sunshine we will see for a while, so after doing some jobs at home I headed out to Little Baddow Lock for a walk along the canal. This lock, like many of the others along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, is full to overflowing and crammed with debris from further upstream. Several nearby fields were also underwater, with more heavy rain to come in the next few days! The second of my monthly visits to one of the 12 locks along the canal, for Treasure Hunt Theme #2 – Once A Month – February.

Day #2225

Day #2225Title: Under The Pier
Location: Clacton-on-Sea, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a beautiful sunny day so I decided to go to the seaside for some pictures. The waves were crashing against the pillars under Clacton Pier and the shadowplay on the water was rather attractive. I thought it would make a great image for Treasure Hunt Theme #30 – Light On The Water.

Day #2224

Day #2224Title: The Raised Walkway
Location: White’s Bridge, Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I took another trip to White’s Bridge this morning – after yet more rain overnight. Sure enough, the River Wid has flooded the surrounding fields and road even more than it had on Day #2213. Now you know why there’s a raised walkway here – the road and pasture beyond the fence are completely submerged.

Day #2213Title: The Paddling Trees
Location: White’s Bridge, Margaretting
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: These trees are growing next to the River Wid at White’s Bridge. It floods regularly – and they often seem to get their feet wet. But they don’t seem to mind. A bit of fog adds a little more atmosphere. But perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #45 – Misty.

Day #2206

Day #2206Title: Divided
Location: Beeleigh Lock, Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I went for a little walk in Beeleigh today, a part of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation which I haven’t explored very much before. There is a lock and a couple of weirs, plus some interesting footpaths to explore. These leaves had fallen on the deck of one of the footbridges across the weir, with the water and reflections below. I thought it would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Right Angles.
