Day #231

Day #231Title: FDT – Troll Hunting Edition
Location: Cooksmill Green, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: I went on a geocaching walk today to pick up five tricky puzzle caches which I’ve finally solved to get the right co-ordinates. Many caches are placed under bridges, but you have to beware of Trolls when you look for the box. I’m taking a sneaky peak between the slats to see if any are lurking underneath!

Day #138Title: Evening At Hoe Mill Lock
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / Self-timer
Notes: I enjoyed a lovely stroll along the canal this evening at Hoe Mill Lock. I visited the location for my monthly canal shot for the Photo A Day project, but this was a bit further on. The red boat is often moored up here, which adds a nice splash of colour.

Day #64

Day #64Title: Resting At Rickets Lock
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, Langford
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: A fun wellie-paddling session was had while visiting Rickets Lock for my monthly themed Photo A Day shot (I’m visiting each of the 12 locks along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation). The flood waters are still gushing over the lock gates here – and I had some quite deep water to wade across on one of the Permissive Paths to get to the lock in the first place. Once again, although I didn’t need a coat today, I was really glad of my trusty pink wellies.

Day #41Title: Checking The Water Level
Location: Broomfield Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: I found myself back at Broomfield Mill this afternoon, and was amazed how much the water level has fallen in the last couple of days – on Saturday it was at the same level as the bottom girder of the bridge. It makes a suitable find for Treasure Hunt Theme #26 – A Bridge.

Day #19

Day #19Title: No Bathing
Location: Sandford Mill Lock
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: With all the recent rain we’ve had, you would have thought that a quick dip was fairly likely, but I found words of prohibition and went home without taking a stroke…
