Day #2106

Day #2106Title: I See The Signs
Location: Toot Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: We went for a little geocaching walk around Toot Hill this afternoon, before Alistair set off for the long drive home to Newcastle. We found one of the old metal signposts on the village green, but we were quite surprised at how short it was!

Day #2002Title: Spikes And Sunlight
Location: Little Baddow, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I had been stuck in front of the computer for most of the day but prized myself away this evening for a geocaching walk around Little Baddow. The light was great for a few shots through the leaves. This spiky specimen is the sort of hazard you have to avoid when out hunting for tupperware in the Summer! But at least it made a good picture for today.

Day #1978Title: Green And Pleasant Land
Location: High Urpeth, County Durham
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Something rather rural today, made during a hot, sunny geocaching walk around the pretty landscape near Urpeth with Alistair. The terrain was varied, the caching was fun and the fresh air was wonderful. Read more about today’s Rural Ramble.

Day #1975Title: The Harbourmaster’s Window
Location: St Peter’s Basin, Newcastle
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Our 10 mile geocaching bike ride today took us along the Walker and Byker stretch of the Tyne. St Peter’s Basin is always good for pictures (last seen on Day #1539). This time around, the window of the Harbourmaster’s House, with its colourful clapboard sides, took my fancy.

Day #1906

Day #1906Title: Etchings
Location: Toot Hill, Essex
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: It was the Essex Geocachers’ social meeting this evening, which happens every couple of months at different pubs around the county. Basically, it’s an excuse for a pint and a natter. The Green Man at Toot Hill was this month’s destination – indoors they have some fine etched glass mirrors on the walls which I rather liked.
