Day #3650Title: Puddles & Patterns II
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I ventured out this morning to get some more Cold & Flu medication. It was bitterly cold, so I left the car at home and walked. I spotted these patterns in an icy puddle, a nice find. It wasn’t long before I was back home again in the warm.

Day #3632Title: Winter Postcard From Galleywood
Location: Galleywood, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We haven’t had a decent snowfall in Essex for a few years. There were light dustings on Day #3300 (Jan this year) and Day #2591 (Feb 2015) but it didn’t hang around for long. I think Feb 2013 was the last time we had enough to grind things to a halt for a little while! I woke up this morning to about 1cm but it carried on snowing heavily for a couple of hours, and by the time I went out for a walk up to Galleywood (leaving the car safely sleeping under its white blanket), there was about 5-6cm of accumulation. It looked very pretty as usual. But I was seriously wondering if I was getting frostbite at one point, as my toes had gone from painfully cold to completely numb, despite two pairs of socks on in my wellies. Eventually I managed to coax enough feeling into them to walk home! We are possibly expecting more tomorrow, which is a pain because I need to go to London and it will probably cause chaos on the trains. Thus endeth my note for Treasure Hunt Theme #49 – Postcards.

Day #3547Title: Storm Front
Location: High Ongar, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was out on a walk today, and of course the showers caught me. Luckily this wasn’t as bad as it looked, I didn’t end up a complete drowned rat.

Day #3531Title: Little Baddow Sunset
Location: Little Baddow Mill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We were back at Little Baddow Mill again this evening, looking for the geocache which we couldn’t search for last time as the world and his (wet) dog were in the way. Nobody here this evening, after a rainy start. The clouds parted around sunset and we were treated to this display.

Location: At home

Notes: It’s a familiar scene but I can’t resist when the sunset produces a display like this.

Day #3505Title: On The Edge Of The Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It threatened to rain for most of the day today. Luckily, it never really happened in my back yard – this was the view across towards Chelmsford city centre, where I imagine it was raining quite hard!

Day #3504Title: Busy With A Combine
Location: Salcott-cum-Virley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was out walking today and spotted this busy farmer hoovering up his wheat with a big combine harvester. The clouds broke briefly and let through a bright shaft of sunlight. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #38 – Harvest.
