Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH

Day #3729Title: The Beast Returns
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We had another significant snow fall today. This was the front of my car at breakfast time this morning! It should look like this. I decided to stay at home and cosy up on the sofa to catch up with some photography admin!

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.

Day #3690Title: Going For A Swim
Location: Deal, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A new mosaic mural has appeared along the seafront in Deal since my last visit. We took a stroll in the biting cold wind today and I spotted this section of a rather chilly looking aquatic lady taking a dip. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #45 – Mermaid.

Day #3687Title: Q Is For… Winter Garden
Location: Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I braved a trip south of the river today, to pick up some things I wanted from the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent. I haven’t been for years, usually avoiding such places. But needs must, and all that. The car park is massive and so they give you handy pointers as to where to head for on your return. I parked under Q and thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Q Is For….

Day #3667

Day #3667Title: Naked Reflections
Location: Hylands Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was back in Hylands Park today, this time with geocaching friend Anne, to find a selection of new caches which have been put out in the area. It was a great chance for a walk and catch up too, and we rounded off our expedition with delicious tea and cake. The cement lid was ever-present though, so mono seemed to be the way to go with this image of some bare winter trees by the Serpentine Lake. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #27 – Edge.
