Recreation Ground

After a very poor start to the day weather wise, with thunderstorms and torrential rain, this afternoon cleared up and we had beautiful sunshine.

I took a stroll across the Recreation Ground in Great Dunmow down to the River Chelmer where I scrambled up and down the banks to get some decent vantage points. This one saw me paddling around what is a quite chilly river at the moment…and the banks were very muddy and slippery from all the rain they had received this morning. Still, I got this shot, a shot I have tried to get before with varying degrees of success, clearly the best way to get this is to get into the river!

This is something I’m, looking to do a lot more of in the New Year, photography of the night sky.

Tonight really wasn’t the ideal time to give this a go – an almost full moon certainly doesn’t help and being in the middle of a small town makes it doubly difficult to get a good shot of the stars in the sky with all the light pollution around. Still, I was quite pleased with what I got as a starter shot…watch this space (please click the image to see the stars properly)!
