Day #3712Title: The Beast Arrives
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I awoke to some proper snow having fallen overnight. And it had a good go at a little blizzard plenty of times during the day too. This one makes a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #70 – Weather.

Day #3711Title: Icing Sugar Or Something Colder?
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The Beast is still unable to reach inland very far, it would seem. Yesterday’s snow disappeared overnight, but we have had a little bit more this morning. It looks very sweet, as if everything has been sprinkled with icing sugar.

Day #3710Title: Tiny Drifts
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The Beast From The East is supposed to be hitting Essex soon, with a big dump of snow. So far, this is the extent of it in Chelmsford! Although I know other parts of the county closer to the coast have had quite a bit more.

Day #3709Title: Sub Zero Bubbles
Location: Chignal St. James, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I enjoyed a cold but sunny walk around Chignal St. James this morning, to find four geocaches. The footpaths were muddy but since most of it was still frozen, it didn’t make the going very difficult. I’m always a sucker for icy puddles and I found some great specimens along the field margins, where water had collected and frozen. These bubbles were trying to escape. I loved the shapes which had formed in the ice. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #75 – Zero.

Location: At home

Day #3707Title: Monthly MOC – February
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I have been waiting for a package from Germany to finish off this LEGO project. I have had it planned in Lego Digital Designer for ages but needed to gather all the bits together to actually build it in reality. Some of the parts are hard to come by, but thankfully BrickLink (a kind of eBay specialising in LEGO) came to the rescue. Here is an aerial view of the Air & Space Museum for my Micropolis project. It includes the main museum building, a Rocket Garden and Space Shuttle with boosters exhibit, plus a little Apollo Command Module and Astronauts’ Memorial in the grounds. So here you are, Treasure Hunt Theme #2 – Monthly Project – February.

Day #3706Title: Scratch The Surface
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Don’t worry, this is an old data CD that my dad’s computer messed up when writing. So I’m using it as a coaster. Scratches aren’t too important now! But I do like to observe the little rainbows trapped inside while I’m drinking my tea.

Day #3705Title: Sunken Garden
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: When the weather is grotty outside, what better than to retreat indoors and take a stroll in a little sunken garden instead?

Day #3704Title: When The Sun Shines
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It was cold and wet again today, apart from a brief period around lunchtime. I managed to catch a few rays to illuminate this little LEGO office block I made for my Micropolis city. When the sun shines, it makes all the difference!

Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: We see barcodes all around us, on packaging for food, goods and even parcels. This is one that took my eye today. Perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 1, Black & White.
