October Review

On and off, we had some reasonable weather during October, if my monthly pictures are anything to go  by. There were also bad days, but these were a few images which could have been photo of the day:

Don’t you love the way the light caught the carving on this headstone in Sandon Churchyard [left] on Day #275? This bright red Acer leaf [right] was a strong contender on Day #288 as I pottered around in my garden.

I’ve also been doing a lot of Geocaching during October, which gives me the perfect excuse to visit locations nearby. I always take the camera with me and have often got a great photo of the day out of the expedition. I’ve been back to some places I know well, and visited others which otherwise, I would not have bothered with.

This lovely image of a wooden viaduct over the Blackwater [left], just south of Witham is a case in point. Sure, if you look on a map, it says there’s a viaduct there. But it gives no clue what a great location it is until you visit. Apparently, the viaduct is of national importance and is one of only a few wooden ones left in the country.

I found these thirsty cows [right] lurking by the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation during a caching trip. They looked at me. I looked at them. Then we both minded our own business!
