Day #4010Title: Whistle While You Work
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I’ve been struggling a bit with the last few Treasure Hunt themes, but wanted to get another one done before Christmas. Only two left now! Then I remembered I had a camping kettle in the cupboard, and set it to boil for this shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #72 – Whistle.

Day #3882

Day #3882Title: Water Under Water
Location: Twechar, East Dunbartonshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I decided to take the long way round today, travelling from Newcastle to Stirling, picking up geocaches in new Scottish counties as I went. This was an almost-fruitless stop in East Dumbartonshire, where the cache took me ages to find. But the location was lovely – close to where a little tributary of the River Kelvin runs under the Forth & Clyde Canal. It also makes a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #67 – Tunnel.

Day #3861Title: And The Rain Came At Last
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It finally happened! RAIN! What a relief. I went and danced around in the garden. Here’s a big fat splash landing on my fence.

Day #3851

Day #3851Title: Lining Up The View
Location: Tynemouth, North Tyneside
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went for a windy walk along the harbour wall at Tynemouth today. The clouds were moody above the North Sea and the light was a little overcast, but I still love this view. The rusty rails are actually mounted on top of the wall, but I’m leaning the camera over quite a way to get the angle I wanted, making it look like they are huge. There had been some overnight rain, so the trough between the rails was puddled with water, adding an interesting line of reflection. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #53 – Pier or Jetty.

Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM

Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a little walk in the garden today, after it had rained. The droplets on the Caster Oil Plant were giving some next highlights. A good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 50, In My Garden.

Notes: One of my geocaching friends arranged another trip out on a boat today so we could grab a new Virtual geocache at Shivering Sands Fort in the Thames Estuary. It was a great day out, a little bit more choppy than last time but thankfully nobody was seasick. Perfect for 52 Themes 2018 – Topic 49, Water.

Day #3725Title: Riverside Walk
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I needed to run some errands in Chelmsford today, so took the camera along to look for some photo opportunities while I was there. This is part of the recent Bond Street redevelopment along the River Chelmer. I liked the way the ripples broke up the water. Perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 41, A Reflection.

Day #3721Title: Pebble Paddle
Location: Tynemouth, Tyne & Wear
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went to Tynemouth with Alistair this afternoon to enjoy a walk along the coast and find some geocaches. It was a lovely sunny day and it made all the difference. The  water here picked up the light, showing how the it form patterns in the sand. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #57 – Sand Patterns.
