Day #3629

Day #3629Title: Don’t Sit Down
Location: Chelmer Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I nipped out this afternoon to Chelmer Park for a quick walk. The rain had stopped but it was still quite wet underfoot – and wet under-bum, if you made the mistake of sitting on this bench!

Day #3624Title: The Red Tarp
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, Paper Mill Lock
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It was a bit grey first thing, but the sun came out by mid-morning. A friend was coming over for lunch so we headed out to Paper Mill Lock to have a sandwich and some very tasty cake at the little lockside café. Then a quick walk along the towpath, avoiding the worst of the muddy patches. This boat was wrapped up well for the winter – the red tarp popped against the blue sky reflected in the water.

Day #3623Title: Jewels Under Foot
Location: Chelmer Village, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I will admit that, with the odd exception, November was a pretty lacklustre month for my photography. I had had a very active October and kind of ran out of steam, didn’t go out that much and lost motivation to do anything creative, apart from building LEGO. But last night, I went to a very inspirational talk by a wonderful photographer,  Vanda Ralevska, who we had the pleasure of having in our 365 group last year. It was just the kick up the butt that I needed – and I have resolved to make more of an effort during December. I was pleased that, once I was out and about today (just having a quick walk in the park next to a local Asda supermarket!), I spotted several photographic opportunities just waiting to be grasped. Of course, the beautiful low Winter light brought everything alive, which helped no end. I saw these little jewels resting on an oak leaf, just in time not to tread on them. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #43 – Morning Dew.

Day #3585

Day #3585Title: Round The Rugged Rocks
Location: Cullercoats, North Tyneside
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The shorter days are beginning to draw in now, so we had to make the most of the daylight before the clocks change. Our outing today started at Silver Link Country Park for a few caches, then onto the seaside at Cullercoats. It was a bit windy again here (a theme running through this trip North!) but the golden evening light was very pleasant. I liked this view around the rugged rocks, but we didn’t spot any ragged rascals. We rounded off our day with a slap up Fish & Chip supper in Tynemouth.

Day #3458Title: Reyhdration In Progress
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: The only way I’ve been coping today is to hide indoors and regularly quaff cold water from a bottle I’ve been cooling in the fridge. I don’t to well in heatwaves. However, it makes a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #48 – Plastic.
