Gailen Mapes67,950Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera G-I - 16 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-09-16 10:09:57161205

Gailen Mapes60,851Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  G-I - 16 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mape2014-03-16 11:21:54145407

Hat In The Air

I thought it was about time for another abstract macro shot of a water drop collision! I thought this one looked like a levitating hat! :)

29/100 - Yellow Freesia

This is shot number twenty nine for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! This freesia plant really surprised me by flowering in early April in the greenhouse, so I couldn't resist making it part of my project!

I've continued to try and make these shots look more three dimensional by altering the positions of my flashguns and varying the power output! I didn't quite get this one right, as the left hand side is a bit too dark, but overall I was happy with the shot!

History In Flight

Isn't it always the case that when something interesting flies above your head, you've always got a macro lens attached to your camera? No? Well, it is with me! :)

I wonder if any of you nice people could enlighten me as to what this old bird is?

I initially thought it was a Spitfire, but the squared off wingtips don't look right. Maybe it's a Hurricane? Well, that's my knowledge of WW2 planes exhausted!

I don't know! I'm a lot better at identifying bugs that fly! :)

41/100 - Ceanothus

This is shot number forty one for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

It was really great to see my ceanothus (California Lilac) bush come into flower this spring, as I thought I'd killed it last year! 

I had cut it back so hard after it had finished flowering last season, and there were only a few small leaves on its branches indicating that it was still alive throughout the winter months! 

However, during February and March it seemed to race away, and eventually produced hundreds of these lovely bright blue blooms!

I've cut it back hard again this year in the hope it will put on another wonderful display next year! :)

I've cut it back hard again this year in the hope it will put on another wonderful display next year! :)

Lurking

I rather enjoyed chasing this longhorn beetle around the garden last weekend! They usually buzz off as soon as they see me, but this one couldn't resist the pollenated goodness of an ox eye daisy, and hung around for me to snap a few close-ups! :)

Pure & Simple

This white rose just appeared in the garden this year! It's a climbing rose and has masses of these small white flowers, which I think you'll agree are rather beautiful!

I love it when nature saves me the hassle of sourcing my garden plants and photo subjects! :)

Crab Spider

I nearly missed this tiny crab spider as I shot some marigolds yesterday morning! The little guy was hiding beneath  the petals, waiting for some unsuspecting bug to come and land just above him - then I came along with my big 105 macro and poked it into his business! He wasn't best pleased, but I didn't take too much time out of his day, and left him be after a few clicks of the shutter! :)

40/100 - Mottled Tulip

I'm getting quite a way behind with posting my 100x project images, hence the two posts in quick succession!

This is shot number forty for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

I was lucky enough to have several varieties of tulip to shoot for the project, and this unusually coloured one was one of my favourites! :)

38-39/100 - Daffodils

These are shots number thirty eight and thirty nine for my 100x project - where x is flora on black!

I grew some different varieties of daffodils this year! These particular types had three flower heads per stem, which I'd never seen before! I was worried that they wouldn't be as robust as the usual bulbs I grew, but as it turned out, they actually lasted longer! :)

Meadow Brown

This meadow brown butterfly couldn't get enough of the ox eye daisies last weekend! 

Even when he decided he'd had enough, he fluttered around for a couple of minutes, but immediately returned to the same clump of daisies! 

I wish all insects would make it that easy to photograph them! :)

Emerald Damsel

She really did do her name justice as she glowed in the morning sunshine!

Small Salti

This is Salticus scenicus, the zebra jumping spider! 

These little spiders are very inquisitive, and love to come and investigate anything that intrudes on their territory!

This little one has claimed my new garden table as its own, and was most unappreciative of me using it for my coffee mug and magazine this afternoon as I enjoyed the sunshine!

Allium In Waiting

This morning I chased many, many insects! There were dragonfly, damselfly, butterfly, hoverfly, and lots of other types of fly, and I managed to get quite a few nice photographs of most of them! 

However, whilst processing a few of them earlier on this evening, it was the patterns in this simple image of an allium flower bud that I kept returning to!

It just goes to show that despite having a plethora of exciting insect fauna to chase, the flora is sometimes just as compelling to view! Well, it is for me! :)

35/100 - Purple Chrysanthemum

This is shot number thirty five for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

With this particular shot I'd noticed that the chrysanthemum's petals were outlined in white! 

My aim was to try and make these edges jump out of the screen by backlighting the bloom with a little bit of fill in flash from the front! It was a little bit trickier than I imagined, and took umpteen attempts, but I think I got a good result in the end! :)

Sunday Lunch

I can't believe it's been over a week since I last uploaded anything! I've been so busy I've just not had the time! 

However, I just couldn't resist uploading this Azure Damselfly enjoying its lunch today! I know it's a bit gruesome, especially the disembodied leg left lying on the leaf! :)

I hope everyone is keeping well, and I will try and catch up when my project deadline passes next week!

33/100 - Red Tulip

This is shot number thirty three for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

This is one of my favourite shots from the project so far! 

I initially thought this pretty red flower was a large crocus, as I'd forgotten to label the pot I'd grown them in! However, it's actually a variety of dwarf tulip called 'Little Beauty', that only grows to about 6" tall! I think it well deserves its name! :)

These are a few of the remaining flowers of an Azalea bush that I've had planted in a wooden barrel for the past twenty years! I recently decided to remove it from the barrel and had the mother of all battles with it! It's roots were everywhere! 

It's now awaiting transplant to somewhere else in the garden...

It's not often I get to take a picture, process it and post it on the same day nowadays, but that's exactly what I've done with this large red damselfly shot! 

It's hard to believe I went through this process every day for my project 365 last year! Where did I find the time?

Anyway, I found this little guy just sitting on my garden table this morning, waiting patiently for me to come along and grab a quick snap, so I didn't mind obliging him! :)

1/12 - Hythe Pier

Here's something a bit different from me...

Do you remember back in January, I wrote an article about my Photographic Resolutions (http://www.ipernity.com/blog/iangrainger/653535)?

As you know, I'm well into shooting my 100x project, but I've been hopeless at shooting my other, smaller 12x project! 

Back in January I hadn't decided whether or not to shoot Landscapes, Architecture or both!

Well, I've decided to shoot Landscapes and Seascapes, and with the good weather we've enjoyed recently, managed to grab a shot I liked that can be the start of this small project!

It's actually shot on an iPhone 5S, and I was particularly pleased with the colours its produced! It makes the little village on the south coast of England look more like it's in the tropics! :)

Heads Up

I was doing some gardening this afternoon when I spotted what I thought was a small brown butterfly flit past my head! I grabbed my camera and gave chase - along the fence, over to the pampas grass, around the pond a couple of times, down the steps, over to the greenhouse, across to the shed, back over to the greenhouse, and then finally to my patio doors, where it finally settled! I just about had enough energy left to press the shutter!

Only it wasn't a butterfly, it was a moth! I've been reliably informed that it's a Spruce Carpet Moth (Thera britannica)! I can't think where it's come from though as the nearest spruce trees must be miles away...

This is shot number twenty nine for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! This freesia plant really surprised me by flowering in early April in the greenhouse, so I couldn't resist making it part of my project!

I've continued to try and make these shots look more three dimensional by altering the positions of my flashguns and varying the power output! I didn't quite get this one right, as the left hand side is a bit too dark, but overall I was happy with the shot!

Eye To Eye Fly

Don't you just love it when the insects come out to play? I know it's only a common little greenbottle, but I love hunting them down, and trying to get in as close as possible to them!

27/100 - Pink Rose

This is shot number twenty seven for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! 

This flower was part of a bouquet I bought for mother's day earlier in the month! However, it won't be long before my own patio roses are coming into bloom - they already have buds on them! :)

Toughened Glass

There was a bit of a disaster back in February, when the strong winds that swept the country managed to blow out several panes of glass from my dad's greenhouse! 

All was not lost however, as when sweeping up the shattered remains of the toughened glass, I managed to grab a few abstract shots of the destruction! 

This one was my favourites as I think the broken shards look a lot like ice! :)

25/100 - Chrysanthemum

This is shot number twenty five for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! This is a shop bought Chrysanthemum which I've lit mostly from behind! 

In my most recent images, I've been trying to concentrate on making the flowers look more three dimensional! 

I quite like how the lighting has transformed this ordinary looking chrysanthemum into something a little more dramatic looking! :)

 These are the pretty little blooms of an aubretia plant! 



This photo was taken back in March! I really need to keep up with posting the images I'm taking for the project, as I'm actually now up to shot number 34, which I took yesterday!

Cherry Tree Blossom

Sorry for being such a bad contact this week! I've been so busy, I've not had any time for photography! I finally got out with the camera today and was very pleased to find a cherry tree in blossom - about a month earlier than is usual!

Fooling Flickr Photo Pages Using Chrome

Not everyone likes the new photo page that Flickr is now using, including me! It's actually giving me a stiff neck when I read comments on my 27" iMac!

Anyway, I thought I'd write a blog post about how to get back to the old photo pages if you're using Google Chrome, until Yahoo redesigns the site again...

This is shot number eighteen for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

You may remember back in January (shot number four - see other image in this album) that I posted a picture of these flowers in bud? I said the buds would "open up into beautiful little white bell like blooms" - just like this! :)

Can I take this opportunity to wish Happy Mother's Day to all mums out there! Keep up the good work - you're all doing a sterling job! :)

17/100 - Forsythia

Here is shot number seventeen for my 100x project!

I found this was my most difficult shot so far! Getting the flashes set so that the yellow wasn't blown out was the first problem to overcome, but finding a composition that suited the flowers was equally as hard! 

When I shot this, I was happy with the composition, but looking at it now, I'm not so sure!

Maybe forsythia is just a difficult flower to photograph?

Here is shot number sixteen for my 100x project! This is an Easter cactus bloom - which is about a month too early! My plant has approximately a gazillion flowers on it this year - give or take a few - and I fear all will be gone by the time Easter actually arrives!
