Day #225

Day #225Title: Shades Of Green
Location: Danbury
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
The weather looked more promising than the forecast this morning, so I nipped out for a quick ride to East Hanningfield and Bicknacre. I got some fairly mundane images from those locations, but the one I liked best was from Backwarden Nature Reserve near Danbury – some furns unfurling in the undergrowth.

Day #167

Day #167Title: Iron Out The Wrinkles
Location: Danubury Park
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Years ago, I was made to go on a camping trip with the school to Danbury Park. It hammered with rain non-stop, and we had a thoroughly miserable week. I’ve been traumatised by camping and have steered clear of Danbury Park ever since! But today, I decided to take a trip out to the Lakes area of the park for some pictures. The sun was in and out, as were the bees on the flowers. I happened to spot this curiousity on my way back to the car – it was a clump of plants growing at the water’s edge. Some of the leaves were completely smooth, and others (often belonging to the same plant) were all wrinkled. I wonder why that happens?

Day #145

Day #145Title: Layers Of Shadow
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Spent the morning doing chores around the house, and the afternoon mowing the lawn and tidying the garden before the impending deluge we are promised tomorrow. Late in the afternoon, I was sitting pulling weeds and throwing them into the plastic canvas collection bag when I noticed how nice their shadows were against the side of the material. This is just as seen, I haven’t done any Photoshop fiddling, apart from Levels and a slight crop. I find these sort of pictures out of nothing to be quite satisfying, as is having a tidy garden again!

Day #91

Day #91Title: Exploring Green
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Some more table top work today, for the my rainbow week theme. This is a pencil case I’ve had for years – it shimmers wth irridescence in the right light. And it had the perfect combination of textures and different greens to give it a bit of interest.

Day #77

Day #77Title: Verdant Shades
Location: Botolphs, Adur Valley
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The weather was a little disappointing again today, but I enjoyed a pleasant 4-mile walk with another Flickr-366 friend, touchingthelight. We started off in Bramber and followed the river to the lovely little church at Botolph. This was taken on the return leg, with the pub beckoning! A few shafts of sun kept coming and going, but the sky in this shot was particularly pale, so I cropped it out altogether. And the myriad greens are appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day today.
