Day #1460

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 #1312 Title: Out In A Storm
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I needed to get some bits and pieces from the town today, in preparation for my trip up North tomorrow. However, it was bucketing down all morning. I spent a large amount of time dodging between shops under my huge golfing umbrella and dripping my way around once inside. I noticed these shiny seats on the terrace of a café – not much custom out there today! I thought they would make a good find for Treasure Hunt #38 – Out In A Storm.

Day #1271 Title: Diffraction Distraction
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: Despite a sunny start, the clouds gathered and by early evening there was persistent heavy rain again. It didn’t dampen our spirits when I went to the pub with friends after work, but it did make for a bit of a soggy journey home. Once I got back to the station car park, I noticed the patterns on the wet ground caused by the fence and platform lighting. Not quite Flaming June – more like Flaming Weather!

Day #1203 Title: Caution
Location: Peace Gardens, Sheffield
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Another interesting day at BarCamp Sheffield. I ran my session on geocaching and we went around the city centre and found a few caches. As we passed the fountain in the Peace Gardens, I couldn’t resist a quick snap of this kiddy enjoying the fountains.

Day #1113Title: Saturated
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Alistair and I went for a quick walk this afternoon to find a new geocache close to home. We were the first to find it, always a nice occurrence. It had been raining heavily, so it was rather wet under foot along the bridleway we walked. Having dodged the puddles, we returned to the car. On the way, I found this drain cover overflowing with the rain.
