Day #3641

Day #3641Title: Sunset Across The Rooftops
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I hate the short days this time of year, but at least I noticed this spectacular sunset happening this afternoon. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to go anywhere more picturesque to make the image, so I stuck my head out of the bedroom window! Thank goodness the Winter Solstice is approaching and the days will begin to draw out again soon.

Day #3633Title: Electric Trees
Location: Whitecross Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I haven’t been to London for a few weeks but needed to visit again today. Thankfully the trains were all behaving themselves despite the snow yesterday (a miracle in itself). I arrived early for my meeting so took a stroll around Broadgate and Whitecross Place, always fertile ground for pictures. I cam across these fantastic LED-lit trees, with spectacular reflections in the wet pavement. Just my sort of thing!

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 #3569Title: Leaves All The Way Up
Location: Blake’s Wood, Danbury
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Sticking with the leaves theme today, this time closer to home. I went for a walk in Blake’s Wood near Danbury and the canopy of leaves was quite impressive. I like looking up towards the sky through them. Lots of lovely textures to see.

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 #3527Title: Evening On The Towpath
Location: Little Baddow Mill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I took a nice evening walk along the canal at Little Baddow Mill today. The path was clear and the light was lovely.

Day #3510

Day #3510Title: Ferns In The Woods
Location: Birching Coppice, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was good to get out for a walk today. I headed towards Toot Hill for a few more geocaches along The Essex Way. Birching Coppice is a lovely tranquil wood and I decided to try something a bit different for today’s picture. Lots of ICM waving later, I was happy with this image, where you can still see the ghostly ethereal shapes of the ferns, as well as the stronger trees. It makes a great image for Treasure Hunt Theme #33 – Graceful.
