Day #1781 Title: Turning Leaf Sumak
Location: The Flitch Way, Rayne
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes:  I was out having a little potter along the Flitch Way in Rayne this afternoon, when I spotted the wonderful autumnal colours of these Sumak leaves. The tree has always been one of my favourites, it provides spectacular colour this time of year. So I went in close with the macro lens to capture it in all its glory.

Day #1777 Title: Purple & Pink Splash
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through purple gel, 1 x YN560 @ 1/64 through pink gel, both through milky perspex to rear
Notes:  A late night splash session produced some good results at last. When I tried collision shots before, I was using just water, from too small a drop height, and was having trouble with shutter lag. This time I used 20% corn syrup solution dropped from about 20cm into water, with a little Rinse Aid in the drop zone. And I found the mirror lock-up function on the 7D which meant the shutter lag was negligible. Soon I was getting lots of interesting shapes – then it was a case of playing around with lighting and drop size/timing to see what happened. Read my full review of the Splash Art Kit.

Day #1742 Title: Pink & Orange Macro
Location: Billericay, Essex
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I took a trip out this afternoon to find a few caches in Billiercay, Hutton and Shenfield. During my wanderings, I found these tiny little flowers on a tree by a path. I’ve no idea what they are, but they looked pretty.
