Day #715

Day #715 Title: Fingers Of Frost
Location: Noak Bridge Nature Reserve, Basildon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: We had a very heavy frost overnight, and in some places,  it hung around all day where the sun didn’t shine. I had to take the car for an MOT and service early this morning, and spent some time in Gloucester Park and Noak Bridge Nature Reserve in Basildon while I was waiting for it. These leaves were in a dim corner of the Nature Reserve and were still perfectly preserved with their icy coating.

Day #672

Day #672 Title: Filtered Sunlight
Location: Hanningfield Reservoir
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Despite a different forecast, the weather was beautifully sunny first thing, so I decided to nip out for a quick walk in the nature reserve at Hanningfield Reservoir. It proved to be an excellent diversionary tactic from doing the filing at home, albeit temporary!
