Day #719

Day #719 Title: Icy Stalactites
Location: Chelmer Park
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Originally, I had intended to stay at home snug and warm after my exertions yesterday, and I have another long hike planned for tomorrow. But when I looked outside first thing, the sun was shining. I couldn’t resist the lure of a few more pictures, so took a cautious walk on the icy pavements to a nearby park. I’m glad I did – some more wonderful images were to be had, and there was barely a soul to be seen at 10am – all the other folks were probably at home snug and warm like I should have been. But there’s the old adage:

There’s no such thing as the wrong sort of weather, just the wrong sort of clothing.

And since I had gone out well prepared, I wasn’t actually very cold at all. Having said that, I was glad of the cuppa when I got home an hour later!

Day #700

Day #700 Title: 700 Bubbles
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Sorry for the uninspired shot again today. I wanted to do something to mark the milestone of Day 700 but was really stuck for ideas. I’ve encountered rather a lot of bubblewrap in the last few days during my cupboard tidying, and I love the stuff for popping. I bet I could do 700 on the trot, no problem.
