Day #926 Title: Purple Ridges
Location: Eynsford, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: Ever since I saw Erasmus T’s photo of the Kentish lavender fields, I’ve wanted to go and have a look for myself. Last year I forgot until the crop was over. And this year, although I remembered, I thought I would not have the time to get over there before they harvested. But owing to my own stupidity on Monday, when I left my camera bag in my friend’s car, I had to meet him at Bluewater today to pick it up. “Aha!” I thought, the lavender is just down the road, so I hot-footed it to Eynsford and was pleased with the results, even if the weather wasn’t great. I’ve only just realised that it’s actually 2 years to the day since Erasmus visited!

Day #924 Title: Flatford Window
Location: Flatford Mill
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: We set off home from our weekend in Suffolk and decided to stop off at Flatford on the way past to look at the river and Willy Lott’s Cottage – in the heart of Constable Country. Unfortunately, the weather was less than kind to us (in a torrential sort of way) and so we ended up spending some time in the tea shop and museum sheltering from the downpour. These Geraniums were in a pot on the windowsill inside the Constable Museum. They made a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #34: Through The Window.
