Day #2910Title: It’s Plane To See
Location: Wickford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I always admire the bark on a plane tree and feel compelled to touch it and feel the textures. This example in Wickford also offered some interesting colours.

Location: Crays Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: I met up with a geocaching friend today for a long walk around a series of caches in Crays Hill and Ramsden Heath. We found this lovely old tree along the way.

Day #2759Title: Crondon Park Sunset
Location: Crondon, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Time for another geocaching walk this evening, this time around a different stretch of Crondon, to finish off a circuit I started last night. Today the weather was much kinder – sunny and warm with a cooling breeze right up until sunset. This tree made a great silhouette against the scene.

Day #2730Title: Pinus Resinosa
Location: Chelmer Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  I had to go to the Post Office today, so I chose the furthest one and decided on a walk through the park for some fresh air. These pine cones on a Pinus resinosa caught my attention on the way back.

Day #2719Title: Roman Remains
Location: Chesters Roman Fort, Chollerton, Northumberland
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes:  We took a trip to Chesters Roman Fort at Chollerton along Hadrian’s Wall today. I’ve been wanting to visit the wall for some time, but it’s never happened on previous visits to the North East. Chesters is quite well preserved – this is a view of the Praetorium (Commandant’s House) showing the Hypocaust under-floor heating at the bath block and of the structure. I thought the fisheye lens gave it a different look.

Day #2666Title: Spring Blooms
Location: Chelmer Park, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 24mm EF-S f/2.8 STM
Notes: A grotty-weather day eventually turned to sunshine late this afternoon. I nipped out for some shopping and a few photos in Chelmer Park on the way. The cherry trees are in full bloom now.

Day #2568Title: Flooded Track With Flare
Location: Chignall Smealy, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another very muddy walk this afternoon to look for geocaches. I chose a few drive-by caches around Chignall Smealy but one looked like a short walk from the road, so I headed off up the track. It took ages as there was so much mud about, and I was trying to stay vertical rather than ending up on my bottom with my dignity in tatters. This bit of the track was completely flooded – glad I had my wellies on. And yes, I did find the cache and get home dry!
