Day #363

Day #363Title: Musically Minded
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: Over the years I’ve learned to play various musical instruments, including Piano, Recorder, Clarinet, Percussion and most recently Electric Bass. I’m not very good at the latter, but I enjoy a noodle along to some of my favourite tunes every now and then. This is the last of the Treasure Hunt Themes #12 – In The Frame – December.

Day #349Title: Graveyard Shoot
Location: Sandon Churchyard
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Tripod / Wireless Remote
Notes: I’m fascinated by the photographic possibilities in old tombs and gravestones. My clones think so too. Today we headed out to familiarise ourselves with some old film cameras in preparation for next year’s big project! A great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Photographers In Action.

Day #342

Day #342Title: Studying The Stars
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: My school careers advisor suggested I should be an astronomer when they looked at the replies to my questionnaire. I went on to become a broadcast engineer instead. However, my interest in astronomy has remained ever since. But when it’s cold and wet outside, this is as close as I get to doing any actual astronomy! A cheeky shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #62 – The Night Sky.

Day #334

Day #334Title: Cat Allergy
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: The penultimate shot in my once a month series, this one is about feline friends. Sadly, although I love cats and would be happy to have one share the house, I’m allergic to them which means I start wheezing and my eyes stream if I touch them. All rather a shame – although probably for the best – otherwise I might be a mad cat woman with hundreds of them! A shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #11 – Once A Month – November. Just in time!

Day #333

Day #333Title: Down Among The Triffids
Location: RHS Hyde Hall, Rettenden
Camera: GoPro Hero 4 Silver
Extras: GoPro Pole / GoPro App
Notes: Encouraged by the promise of a sunny day, I took off to visit Hyde Hall gardens. I had a lovely wander around the grounds, making the most of the balmy weather. There isn’t a lot of colour left in my garden by this time of year, but I managed to find some here – the Chinese Lanterns were beginning to go to seed, but I love their bright vibrant orange against the blue sky. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #39 – A Colourful Garden.
