Day #727

Day #727 Title: Breakthrough
Location: Burnham-on-Crouch
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had intended to take a trip to Maldon for the annual Mud Race today, but I got half way there and the traffic was silly, so I detoured to Burnham instead. The sun came out as I walked along the promenade, breaking through the clouds. I took a few pictures and then enjoyed a nice cup of tea and a toasted teacake in a little café looking at the water.

Day #685 Title: Wivenhoe Quay
Location: Fingringhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Having spent yesterday in Colchester, I stayed overnight with my parents in Wivenhoe and spent most of today with Mum whilst Dad was out playing the organ for various church services. The three of us also enjoyed a pleasant lunch out. It was supposed to rain, but Mum & I took advantage of the good weather and had a drive and little walk. This is one of my favourite views of Wivenhoe, taken from across the River Colne at Fingringhoe. A lovely spot to catch the warm evening light illuminating the quayside opposite. A nice way to spend another 40@40 day.

Day #613 Title: Mud, Glorious Mud!
Location: Mayfield, Sussex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I am on my way to Brighton for a conference over the weekend and am staying with a friend Tom who lives in Sussex this evening. We went for a pleasant (but very muddy!) geocaching walk with the family dog soon after I arrived this afternoon. Luckily, I had borrowed a pair of wellies, or I could have come to a very sticky end, not least as we were finishing our walk and found this big puddle in front of the gate across the footpath. Tess the dog did not seem in the least bit bothered. We then went for a rather good curry in Wadhurst, so another very enjoyable 40@40 thing accomplished!
