For the last couple of nights I've been hoping to get a decent picture of the full moon, but for some reason I couldn't get a clear shot of the surface features.
This one was taken 4 days ago and is the clearest I've managed. I used a tripod and the self-timer and set the exposure compensation to -2.

I discovered this tree overhanging the River Witham and couldn't resist climbing on it. Needless to say I left my camera on dry land.

This week I've tried to catch a decent picture of the moon. Here's my latest attempt. I used a tripod and set the exposure compensation to -2.

I've been trying to take a photo of water droplets with the background focused in the droplet. This is my best attempt so far. Have you got any suggestions how I can take a better shot?

This morning I walked to Witham Park to experiment with a new camera. I photographed this lichen hoping to identify it, but my book isn't very clear. Does anyone recognise it?
Update: thanks to everyone who helped identify the lichen. It's Common Orange Lichen (Xanthoria parietina).

After climbing down about 3m in a tight rift and wriggling another 5m through a low passage, Beck Head Stream Cave opens out onto the sandy bank of an underground stream.
Not wanting to take my camera any further I took this one photo before braving the icy waters! After wading for ages upstream the passage reaches an underground waterfall and the end of my exploration, Broadbent Falls.

Here's something I don't see very often. The tidal River Witham froze over a couple of nights ago. As the tide went out, the river left sheets of broken ice on the banks, freezing over again at low tide.
Taken by my camera phone from the footbridge near Boston Stump.
