Day #2507

Day #2507Title: Amythist Deceiver
Location: Hanningfield Nature Reserve, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I spent a great few hours with local Nature photographer Daniel Bridge today. We took a long walk around Hanningfield Nature Reserve looking for fungi to photograph. This little treat was nearly overlooked but we spotted it on our way back to the car after having some tea and cake at the café.

Day #2347Title: Tranquil Moorings Redux
Location: Dedham, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 70-200mm EF f/2.8 L USM
Notes: After a successful trade-in/shopping trip to Wex this morning, I wanted to play with my new 70-200mm lens and stopped off in Dedham on the way home for a break and a lovely cream tea. I’ve photographed these boats before way back on Day #103 but that was a much wider shot. So far, I’m really pleased with the new toy, but watch this space for more pictures.

Day #2206Title: Divided
Location: Beeleigh Lock, Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I went for a little walk in Beeleigh today, a part of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation which I haven’t explored very much before. There is a lock and a couple of weirs, plus some interesting footpaths to explore. These leaves had fallen on the deck of one of the footbridges across the weir, with the water and reflections below. I thought it would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Right Angles.
