December was another varied month for the weather, my travels and images. We had plenty of cold frosty mornings again. This shot [left] was the result of me trying to clear the frost off the car windscreen before setting out for a meeting on Day #338. Always leave yourself enough time to take the unexpected image!
The first weekend in December saw me head to Liverpool for the city’s first BarCamp. Like Sheffield the previous weekend, it’s a place I hadn’t visited for years and I regret having left it as long.
During the Saturday afternoon, a group of us had a walk around the city centre to find some geocaches and have a bit of a photowalk. Here [right] are the others acting lairy with a big 20 we found on a side street.
We walked back to the venue along the banks of the Mersea, and were just in time for a wonderful sunset across the water, which I chose for Day #341‘s image. But the runner up was definitely this image of the iconic Liver Building, bathed in warm evening light:
I was doing some Christmas shopping at the Battlesbridge Antiques centre on Day #354, which was beautifully sunny. The long shadow cast by the bell [left] almost made it for pic of the day.
Christmas itself was fairly mundane for pictures. The weather wasn’t great where I was, although Boxing Day was sunny but very cold. A few days after Christmas I went geocaching again with fellow addict Alistair. We had trips around Little Waltham, Maldon and Hylands Park. These last few are near misses from Day #363, #364 and #365:
