Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS

Day #3953Title: Autumn Layers
Location: Ashridge Estate, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Spent a lovely day today roaming around the Ashridge Estate at the Geolympix Geocaching MEGA Event with a couple of friends. The Autumn colours were much in evidence, and this was a lovely little scene which I couldn’t resist. Perfect for this week’s 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 5, Fall (Season).

Day #3916Title: Hard Contrasts
Location: Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Here’s a different Autumnal shot for you today. There are plenty of attractive leaf specimens around at the moment, so expect a few more! I think I managed just a couple of shots of this before it blew away in the wind.

Day #3915Title: Unlucky 13
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: The neighbours have a bush which produces these striking red berries every Autumn. They drop onto the tarmac and quietly rot away, or get squished by car tyres, unless the birds get to them first. Here’s a bunch of 13 – with one unlucky specimen already beginning to shrivel.

Day #3865Title: The Stages Of Decay
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A quick shot from the garden today. The castor oil plant sheds its leaves regularly so there’s usually a brown one lurking under the healthy ones.

Day #3853Title: Green Fingers
Location: Armstrong Park, Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went for a wander in Armstrong Park today, seeking the shade of the woods around the river gorge. At one point, I spotted this vibrant patch of mare’s tail (Equisetum arvense) waving to me in a patch of sunlight, so this had to be the pic of the day.

Day #3852Title: Bee Meets Bug
Location: Heddon Haughs, Tyne & Wear
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Alistair & I went on a geocaching adventure to Heddon Haughs this afternoon, and back along the riverside walk to Blayney Row. We did well, finding all the caches we looked for. And we also found some busy bees buzzing around on the Rosebay Willowherb (Chamerion angustifolium) which was growing along the side of the path. I’m no expert, but I think this was a honey bee (not sure of the exact species) meeting a Common Red Soldier Beetle (Rhagonycha fulva) nose to nose.

Day #3842Title: Purple Pom-Pom
Location: South Woodham Ferrers, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Against my better judgement, I ventured out of the house today for a lunchtime geocaching meetup and then took a little drive around to find some more. It was ridiculously hot, but it was good to get out of the house for a while. I spotted this lovely thistle, laden with pollen and just waiting for some bees to arrive, while I was walking between two caches near South Woodham Ferrers.
