Day #317

Day #317Title: Marina Reflections
Location: Springfield Lock
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I took the opportunity to nip out for a breath of fresh air while the sun was shining today. And find another geocache or two. Once again, geocaching has taken me to a spot which I didn’t even know existed, and it’s lovely. It’s along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, just downstream of the Essex Record Office, and is about the last bit of civilisation before you hit the more rural paths along the canal.

Day #307

Day #307Title: After Constable
Location: Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: A much more successful caching day today – I managed to find my 50th hide with Alistair’s assistance. This was taken on a short walk between two sites along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, and reminded me of a Constable painting. I haven’t done anything to it, it’s as it came out of the camera.

Day #223

Day #223</ins>Title: Bow Wave
Location: Little Baddow
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
I spent an enjoyable couple of hours this morning taking a walk along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation from Paper Mill Lock to Little Baddow Lock. I took a photo for Day #6 near this location, but it’s surprising how different it looks a few months later.
