Day #3714Title: Cosy Now
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I woke up this morning to a cold house. What’s up!? The boiler was showing an error which, when Googled, suggested it was a frozen condensate pipe. Argh! I had a brief phone chat with my lovely plumber who advised the best way to thaw it out. So I then spent half an hour in the snow outside pouring hot water over the pipe from a handful of flasks. This task would have been easier were it not for the fact that half the 6ft run is on the wall behind my shed! I just managed to shove my arm (holding the flask) in between wall and shed to do the deed. Thankfully, the boiler woke up soon afterwards and I was toasty again! Phew. I’ve added a bit more lagging to the most likely place it froze, which will hopefully prevent a recurrence.

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.
