Day #1460 Title: Don’t Rock The Boat
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a quick impromptu photowalk with a local Flickr friend this morning. We went to Heybridge Basin and on my way back to where I parked, I came across a group of canoeists paddling along the river. No sooner had I turned my back on then than there was much laughing and it turned out one of their number had managed to capsize his boat. They were all giggling madly as they righted the vessel and he crawled back in! Must have been cold, but apparently no harm done. See more shots here.

Day #1305 Title: Through The Square Window
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed an evening photoshoot with the folks from GNPC today. We went to Heybridge Basin which is always good for photographic opportunities. Several of us were also in need of some dinner, and so we ordered food at The Jolly Sailor and sat outside waiting for it. Initially, the light was rather flat and boring so we didn’t mind not taking picutres, but then the sun broke through and the food still hadn’t arrived! I took this shot of the pub door from the outside table whilst waiting for my plate to arrive. One of the three themes we were looking for during the shoot was squares, so this fitted the bill nicely. I was also very pleased to have found another willing stranger for my project before everyone else turned up.
