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 #3554Title: Church End Evening
Location: Church End, Bedfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I did quite a bit of roaming today, firstly attending a geocaching litter-picking event in Letchworth and then going on to find some other caches around Bedfordshire. I finished my hunt a place called Church End in Bedfordshire, which had this rather picturesque view, before the long drive home.

Day #3337Title: Snowdrops In The Sunshine
Location: Ulting, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby 5.8mm Fisheye
Notes: After another busy day sorting things out at home and taking a car full of stuff to the recycling centre, I headed to Ulting for a few photos, as it was only a short detour. The snowdrops are out in the churchyard, and I decided to get down low with my Lensbaby fisheye lens, which gives lots of lovely internal lens flare.

Day #3296Title: Morbid Fascination
Location: Stock, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2
Notes: I had some errands to run in Billericay this afternoon, when the sun was out. Unfortunately, by the time I had finished, it had disappeared again. But I stopped off at Stock Church on the way home to see if I could find any pictures. I admit I’m a bit weird and enjoy wandering around graveyards looking for unusual headstones. I spotted this one, which I thought was rather morbid! Classic Victorian Gothic, perhaps… But it makes a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #73 – Wings.
