Decided to hit Photo of the Day for 2021. I enjoyed it so much in 2015 and 2016, but things kind of flaked out in a busy 2017. I seem to have never recovered, so here we are 5(!) years on having a fresh attempt.
I don't need to tell anyone who has done POTD that the quality might not be there everyday, which is partly why it's tucked away in an obscure corner of my website! I'm going to try not to worry about that.
Thank you for stopping by.
14/365. New Wafer. Spent far too long faffing about with these designs, but finally got them to play with :-)

13/365. Microfluidic setup. This is what I play with every day. It's fun but also rather frustrating!

12/365. Bike. The bike racks are not in high demand at the moment, due to limited staff access, no students and the fact that it's flipping cold!

11/365. Coil Spring. Woke to some broken suspension (and a broken boiler!). Basically none of the spring should be below the cup! Kindly towed by the RAC to Solent MOT Centre and it was back up and running in a couple of hours :-)

10/365. Fishlake. This will probably not be the last POTD to feature these dead trees. I was going to save them up for a rainy day, but I'm quite pleased with how this shot came out!

9/365 Leaf. Took a little stroll in the woods and happened upon this softly lit leaf with the light coming through behind it.

8/365 Robin. Nipped out for a bit in the middle of a long day in the lab to grab a quick pic before it got too dark. Really been a lot of fun having the 150-500, bring subjects to you :-)

7/365 Stonechat. Had a quick wander to the nature reserve and spotted this little stonechat in the fading light.

6/365 Kingfisher. I was very fortunate to receive a tip off about a local Kingfisher, so I used my daily exercise to take a stroll by the river and was amazed to get such a good sighting of this magnificent creature!

4/365 Plasma! Always enjoy generating plasma to bond my devices at work! The difficulty is trying to come up with imaginative descriptions for that colour to go in the log book!

3/365 Festive Long Tailed Tit. Spotted some long tailed tit in the garden. It was pretty late and the light was fading fast but managed to grab this shot with some Christmas lights behind!

2/365 For some reason this broken wine glass just one day into the New Year felt poignant in some way!
