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 #706 Title: By The Great Ouse
Location: Ely, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Four of us from GNPC had a rather enjoyable day out in Ely today, despite pouring rain first thing, the weather perked up immensely and we got some good photographic opportunities. We spent quite some time in the Cathedral, and had a good walk along the river too. This fisherman was quietly ensconced on the banks with a big brolly to shield him from the wind.

Day #685

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 #643

Day #643 Title: Old Father Thames
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another trip to London today, this time to meet photographer friend Paulo for a 40@40. We started off in Holborn and walked down to the river. Originally we wanted to go on a London Duck Tour but they were all booked up, so we took a regular boat from the London Eye to Tower Bridge instead. Finally, we had a potter around the largely deserted City, finishing up at Liverpool Street. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable day, and we were grateful for the good weather too.

Day #510

Day #510Title: Large Red Damselfly
Location: Near Cuton Lock
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The monthly Chelmsford Flickrwalk has come around again, and this time we decided to walk the section of the Centenary Circle between Springfield and Great Baddow. This took us along a part of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation near Cuton Lock, and we saw a lot of dragonflies and damselflies flitting about. This one just sat still for long enough on a Gunnera leaf so that I was able to get a couple of shots. Thanks to the British Dragonfly Society, I was able to identify what it was.
