Day #931

Day #931 Title: A Blot On The Landscape?
Location: Sandon
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent the day with my head down in the office and was rather uninspired as far as photography goes. But that’s one of the things I love about Project 365 – it forces you to get off your bum and go in search of pictures. Originally, I was going to head out to Paper Mill Lock this evening, but got half way there and noticed the light was about to go. So instead I took a walk near Sandon and found some amazing cloudscapes near the pylons. I also saw a Sun Dog for the first time (sadly, it didn’t make a great picture or you would have been seeing it here). So there you are – from uninspired to feeling rather pleased I’d made the effort to go out and find something interesting. I quite like pylons, but some people don’t. Perhaps a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #73 – A Blot On The Landscape.

Day #784 Title: Wet ‘n’ Wild
Location: Roxwell
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I drove through some snow this morning to a client meeting in Cambridge, and hoped to get some white shots on the way home this afternoon. But by that time, it had mostly melted and the driving hazards were replaced with flooding in the road! This is just by the spot where I took Day #757‘s shot, on a minor road leading to Roxwell. The main A1060 nearby was also flooded with significant amounts of water. Just goes to show that you should not rule out an interesting picture even in grim weather!
