#maldon #essex +Visit Essex

A picturesque little town on the banks of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, UK. It was once a significant Saxon settlement and battle site. Also known for the annual Maldon mud race and home of Maldon sea salt, loved by chefs the world over.

(This is approximately half width of the original image, made from eight horizontal images).

A Morning in March © Copyright Andrew Birch 2014.
Taken in #eppingforest this morning.

I took a couple of days off work this week as it's the end of the fishing season and planned on a few night sessions on a local river, I went wednesday night and unfortunately I fell into the river :D The water was almost neck high. I cut my hand quite badly on some bankside brambles in the process, so that has put an end to my fishing for this season. Part of my recovery involved a walk in Epping Forest this morning with the camera... I found some stunning light.

No processing here.... sooc and a quick desaturate.
 
I've written a small piece about the best times to capture shots like this at my website for those of you interested. You can find it by following this link - http://www.andrewbirchphotography.com/forest-light-9.php

Thanks for showing some sympathy +Sheree Nicholson . I will have a sore hand for a few days and the water was not too cold, suprisingly! Perhaps being fully clothed made it feel warmer. :)

Taken on a very windy day today. I had to lean on the tripod to keep it steady with a 40 second exposure. Converted from raw, no further processing.

Introduction
I'm an amateur photographer and web designer. I take photos, mainly nature oriented and process from raw using ACR and Photoshop. My work leans towards fine art photography and away from reportage. I have a website that I built from scratch where I upload photos. I write HTML, CSS and PHP script using Notepad.

My photos can be shared under this creative commons license.

Please provide a link back to me at G+, Flickr or my personal website when sharing my images outside of G+.

I started taking photos in 2006.

G+ 24 Jan 2013.

I'm also a prize-winning coarse fisherman with various species of specimen fish to my credit, although I now specialize in chub fishing.
Bragging rights
I caught an 8lb 12oz chub, 9oz short of the British record and said to be Britain's largest chub caught during 2013-2014 season.
