Donegal Photowalk 2014220Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene).  Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena, John & AndyDonegal Photowalk 20142014-09-27 09:00:0029

I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls".

Gailen Mapes80,278Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera D-F - 3 of 27Note: 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 February 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-03 11:35:30150214

If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-04 11:52:18145000

Blwyddwyn Newydd Dda

or for those not used to Welsh that's Happy New Year.

Thought I'd take just a few moments, via my most poopular iage of the year, to wish all my followers a HNY and to say I hope that your 2015 is even better than your 2014.

I'd like to take a moment to single out a few specific people that have made my year on and off G+ a very special one.

First there is:
+Robin Griggs Wood my master and mentor and slave driver in +The Arcanum I have to thank her and everyone in her cohort for all your thoughts, comments and direction. It's you guys that have kept me there despite my cluelessness.

+Athena Carey +Andy Bitterer and +John Dunne you guys inspire me and drive me to better myself. Thanks for organising the European photowalks as they force me to be social and share.

#PLUSpost  +Robin Griggs Wood +The Arcanum 

I've been off of the main stream of G+ for while so thought I'd re-surface and explain what's going on. As those of you that follow me may know I'm going through this thing that is "The Arcanum"

At present I'm at Level 6 where I have to undertake a challenge that sees me stepping outside of my comfort zone - I won't bore you with the details (unless you want to know) but I will say that the linked video has helped me see that my challenge is nothing in reality. To me it's a step into the unknown but the video is something that excites me and gives me confidence to keep moving forward and to keep on keeping on... as the quote on the associated website (http://bit.ly/1tV276N) says:

Something Beautiful, She Comes
Week 2/26: Macro

So I shot this, amazingly for me, within a day of the theme having been announced. Wanted to make sure my image got in on time so all the curators had a chance to see it.

Of course I've been desperate to share it so did so with my +The Arcanum cohort, but now the world can see it.

This is my first real, serious use of flash to help enhance a subject matter and I thoroughly enjoyed the playtime I had creating this - especially as local weather, as we Welsh say, has been "a bit damp" - also fell ill shortly afterwards so maybe it was chance or grace or whatever power you believe in that had me shoot so quickly and process it ready.

Now I'm just about back at 90% health and perfect timing for me to share this for today ... for yes, today is now Friday 16th in the UK.

The Shard at Sunset...

There are times in ones life that regret can creep in ... photographing in the limited time I have this week in London is becoming one of those. As I snap I can hear myself thinking ..."why wasn't I this much into photography when I worked and lived here?"

Even though the London skyline has changed beyond recognition from when I was here it still had iconic buildings to be shot .. now we have newer iconic ones such as this.

I bring you #coffeethursday this week courtesy of Starbucks. I wouldn't normally darken their doors but they do a mean toasted panini and iced mango passion fruit smoothie (it's practically summer here) so why not?

And oh yes, that's Tower Bridge in the background.

Thursday means it has to be #coffeethursday with +Jason Kowing​​ +Maki Silberberg​​ +Sairam Sundaresan​​ and myself.

This damp morning finds me on a bus to Belgium with 30+ martial artists though a fair few have been on the "heavy pop" since 05.30. Not sure how they will remain upright.

So here's a small planet double shot latte for all you sober ones. Namaste.

Theme: Abstract  - Curated by +Tisha Montgomery +Brandon Luk +Lauri Novak +Alison Christensen  

I'm posting this early as I will be on the road with limited to no internet access from tomorrow and need my time between now and then to prep and do family & work stuff too. So first up, my apologies to the mods.

Secondly, themes like this abstract and the previous ones are really foreign to me and I struggle immensely with how to portray them but hope I've done this one justice whilst keeping to my roots of landscapes :) - for those that want to know, this is a (partial) view of the new RNLI lifeboat ramp at Mumbles pier in Swansea, South Wales

Juxtapositions

Went for a stroll with the family today down a place known as "The Mumbles" locally. Weather was breezy but had a lovely time with my wife and younger children. Was especially nice to see the revamped RNLI station all  ready and in use.

This 'old style' light with a modern bulb just added some piquancy to the whole experience. And of course, being The Mumbles we had to finish our day off with ice cream.

I'm not a fan of  shots of abstracts like "emotion" as typically I really struggle with a concept for them. This time I knew almost immediately what I wanted to do... just a matter of doing it. So don't ask what emotion this is as that I leave to the eye of the viewer but I will say I added a deliberate blur layer to try and 'create a mood'.

Compare Your Annual Salary v ...

Fun tool that also has its serious aspect and makes me once again re-appreciate what I do have. For example my annual salary when compared to Ronaldo tells me he would earn that much in 19 minutes!

So after I get past that eye boggling thought it then tells me if I'd started earning what I earn now in 1479 I would have ALMOST earned what he earns per year!

But then the serious bits kick in and it reminds me I earn 2.3 times the worlds average salary and 1.3 times the UK average. It's these figures that make me take stock - make me thankful for my health and living in a country that has clean water on tap - thankful that I can help those less fortunate - etc, etc.

Then it also makes me wonder just how much these top footballers (soccer to my US friends) care or do anything about helping the less fortunate.

Dear +Robin Griggs Wood 

It has been several weeks since my last confe^H^H #PLUSpost and I come seeking forgiveness..

But in all seriousness it has been several weeks and mostly without photography much to my regret. Most of that due to the lurgy taking its toll on me but some of it down to the weather .. but yesterday I thought to myself, hang the weather, so was stood in this pond taking shots at sunset whilst snow was starting to fall around me.

Let me tell you.. I was cold but it felt good.

Despite the lack of apparent progress though I have now reached Level 9 in +The Arcanum 1st track for mentees and I am still loving it. I had my #level9 hangout with my aster the other day and came away virtually skipping on air.

Realistically I won't be making money anytime soon (but that's another story) but the key is I'm learning to produce what my mind is seeing more times than not.

To me that's a rip roaring success.

What about you? Have you seen an improvement in my photos? Or if you're in +The Arcanum have you seen your own photography progress? I do hope so.

Here's my current 2015 mantra:
Focus on what matters and let go of what doesn't.___

Spume Sunrise

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

Week 3/26: Tools of the Trade 
#BWProject26  +Tisha Montgomery +Brandon Luk +Alison Christensen +Lauri Novak 

It's been a while since I had to do this and settle don this after wondering just how to depict my current tools of the trade - but decided fairly early on that a picture of a computer screen wasn't going to be exciting. So opted to go back in my history and fix an old graphics card which had a few dry joints - them hands are still rock solid steady ;)

Tripod Quandary - a question... or two and maybe even a lesson!

oh and bear with the back story or just skip ahead to the TL:DR...

Being honest and upfront I just may have been a little dull from the start but I went with a Giottos CF tripod because it fitted my budget, gave me CF and had functionality I liked. 

The dull part was in going with clip locks instead of screw locks.

Why? Well despite Giottos own advertising showing people standing knee or more deep in water (including sea) [ cf: http://bit.ly/1E9VZvK ]my original tripod has fallen foul of me being a dullard. I washed and cleaned it as best I could. I even contacted the company that does the UK warranty for Giottos and asked their advice.

The dull part was in going with clip locks instead of screw locks.

Why? Well despite Giottos own advertising showing people standing knee or more deep in water (including sea) [ cf: http://bit.ly/1E9VZvK ]my original tripod has fallen foul of me being a dullard. I washed and cleaned it as best I could. I even contacted the company that does the UK warranty for Giottos and asked their advice. I followed their advice and did everything, every time to clean & dry my tripod as best I could. I even asked them how I could take it all apart to clean and dry each individual part as needed - the answer was you can't!

So after a year of happy use I noted that all metal bits were rusty which is no big surprise (I thought) but one leg was getting stiffer and stiffer to pull our / push in to the point that I, a 6ft lump, couldn't shift it. So I contacted the supplier and they suggested a warranty repair (it has a 5yr warranty) may be in order. As I have a very handy Benro Travel tripod (screw locks) it would be no big deal to be without for a few weeks.

Well last week saw the UK warranty folks tell my supplier they wouldn't repair under warranty as parts were rusty and there was lots of grit inside. They also said, in less direct words than my precis, that I was a liar as they were the only supplier of spare parts in the UK and I had never spoken with them nor had parts from them. They also said there was no UK based Giottos repairer that I could contact which overall tells me I spent a lot of money, for me, on a lemon. 

We will ignore the replacement column then..? And the spare bolts, nuts & springs they sent as well as the complete locking collar due to one of mine snapping? How about the reams of emails we exchanged about maintenance of my tripod? No?

Let's face it folks - my name is pretty unique. Fact - I know I am the only Stuart Dyckhoff in this world of +7Billion peeps and I'm certain there aren't that many with my surname contacting Daymen  International Ltd  (Giottos UK Warranty peeps) about problems. I don't expect to be remembered but a brief search of their inbox, etc for contact should have revealed we'd had many conversations.

I had tried to be nice and I was honest with them about how the rust and grit came about but being called a liar brought my fight instinct out. My character is of one that speaks his mind.. truthfully ... even if it's painful to me. I don't know any other way to be and I confess it's got me into trouble as well ... but that's for another time!

So I called out Daymen for calling me a liar and provided proof of contact and proof oc their advice saying how I should "wash" my tripod, etc... and today saw the arrival of my shiny replacement "goodwill, one time gesture" from Daymen of a brand new Giottos CF Silk Road YTL8384.

Effectively all the capabilities of my old one with some improvements. Only still with clip locks.

TL:DR Daymen International Ltd essentially called me a liar I showed them to be wrong and now have a shiny new tripod. And for that shiny new tripod I am very, very grateful.

So ... and here's my quandary...

I need to be able to use this tripod in damp conditions. I live in South Wales in the UK. We are known for our rain and supply much of England as well as ourselves with their annual tap water. I also like to photograph in the early or late hours when grass is damp. I like to photograph seascapes, I like to photograph rivers and waterfalls. All these are damp places. I even carry a pair of waders around so I can really get "in to the scene" so to speak.

So my bottom line query is either:

1. How do I keep everything on my tripod free from water and grit whilst keeping it's capabilities in the field or...

2. Does anyone have an effective dis-assembly method for the collars on a Giottos tripod? Last time I tried on my old unit the first collar snapped.

Or am I doomed to only use this unit in dry, grit free conditions? In which case I may as well sell it and buy myself the CF version of my travel tripod because I know how easy it is to strip down and clean.

Feel free to share this around or tag in anyone you think could help. Diolch yn fawr.

Just call me #dumbass

Something Beautiful, She Comes
Week 2/26: Macro

So I shot this, amazingly for me, within a day of the theme having been announced. Wanted to make sure my image got in on time so all the curators had a chance to see it.

Of course I've been desperate to share it so did so with my +The Arcanum cohort, but now the world can see it.

This is my first real, serious use of flash to help enhance a subject matter and I thoroughly enjoyed the playtime I had creating this - especially as local weather, as we Welsh say, has been "a bit damp" - also fell ill shortly afterwards so maybe it was chance or grace or whatever power you believe in that had me shoot so quickly and process it ready.

Now I'm just about back at 90% health and perfect timing for me to share this for today ... for yes, today is now Friday 16th in the UK.

If you've read this far and you have any criticisms, hints or suggestions on how to make this better then as ever my thread is open to you... just keep it clean!

Head on over to +Pam Boling post if you want a chance to join this great opportunity to learn more about your photography.

The Seeing Compositions mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

Important: If you reshare this post, please disable comments.

This is a special program to help you improve your photographic composition skills through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. The primary goal of this workshop is to help you learn to see and capture better compositions. I will be taking on a handful of people for a six-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been a photographer for over thirty years and have worked professionally for much of that time. I am currently an Apprentice in the Arcanum under the tutelage of +Robin Griggs Wood. I work in many genres, though my current bent is primarily landscapes and macro.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not about basic camera operation or technical aspects of photography. You will be learning the ART of photographic composition and how to make your photographs more appealing. We will explore ways to draw your audience in and hold attention.

This will be an intensive Mentorship. I will ask that you give your all, as will I. Your reward will be commensurate with your investment of time and effort. I expect you to be shooting a LOT because the more you practice, the better ingrained these concepts will become – and the better photographer you will be. There will be weekly assignments based on a theme/concept. I will ask that you shoot ten photographs based on the theme, but you will only be required to post two or three of those. The remaining photos will be on the honor system and for your benefit because, again, how much time and effort you invest determines how much improvement you will see.

Selections will begin January 19 for the mentorship beginning January 28 – I chose a Wednesday to give us a chance to settle in, introduce ourselves and have a weekend to get out shooting, for those who may have regular Monday to Friday jobs.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.
• You are willing to shoot and process 10+ photographs per week (only three will be shared in the community, but they will be the “best of” the ten or more that you shoot).

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:  https://plus.google.com/108127039931400009413/posts/2qJuFWSuAZm
(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation
8) How often you currently shoot

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CC
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this 
8) Twice a week

I will read all responses. However, I will not be able to respond individually to each of you. 

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

First sunrise of 2015

So yesterday morning I'd decided I'd head up one of my local valleys to try and capture a shot of the rising sun over a small pond but as I stepped outside the door, quietly as the rest of my house was asleep, I saw that the cloud cover was going to be just right for the beach. So a quick change of mind and  drive in the opposite direction saw me at this spot.

This is the same beach and shoot where I posted my water covered filter shot from yesterday ... if you are ever in South Wales and want company down this location then I am always up for shooting here no matter how many times I return to it.

Wet Foot

... or that moment that nearly did for my camera.

I was out shooting the sunrise this morning when I ignored one of my own precepts about solo shooting down the beach, which is... never turn my back on the water  and it was only quick reactions that allowed me to grab my tripod before it got washed away or smashed my camera up!

In the end - all I got was a wet right foot as the water came over the top of my welly on that leg.

New year ... new / old project - #BWProject26

This year sees the B&W project returning to the open environs of the public stream and it is curated by +Tisha Montgomery +Brandon Luk +Lauri Novak +Alison Christensen and will see those taking part trying to post an image, to a set theme, every other Friday.

The first Friday is Jan 2nd and the theme is 'New Beginnings' but with a twist being that it's about setting a photographic goal for 2015.

Well as my fellow Arcanum cohorts will tell you I'm not good with goals but this one I can do as it's something I had decided and already talked about that I want to work on - it's a two (possibly three) fold one of learning to use my new flash gun specifically with portraits as well as the post processing of any such image...

So... in that light (pun intended so all groan please) here is my first flash gun portrait of my only willing model... my youngest (share limited so please do not re-share*). I know I have a lot to learn but we have to start somewhere - for this shot I have my gold reflector at a 45 degree angle to his face and the flash (off camera) angled upwards pointing at the reflector and the zoom set to match the focal length of my Sweet 35 lensbaby optic. Focal length of f/2.5 and my focus is not quite in the right spot and perhaps I should have had a greater DoF.

* Apologies up-front to those that are not in my circles but in this project - but I took a decision a while back not to share images of my children too widely. Please just ask to be added in.___

Blwyddwyn Newydd Dda

or for those not used to Welsh that's Happy New Year.

Thought I'd take just a few moments, via my most poopular iage of the year, to wish all my followers a HNY and to say I hope that your 2015 is even better than your 2014.

I'd like to take a moment to single out a few specific people that have made my year on and off G+ a very special one.

First there is:
+Robin Griggs Wood my master and mentor and slave driver in +The Arcanum I have to thank her and everyone in her cohort for all your thoughts, comments and direction. It's you guys that have kept me there despite my cluelessness.

+Athena Carey +Andy Bitterer and +John Dunne you guys inspire me and drive me to better myself. Thanks for organising the European photowalks as they force me to be social and share.

Christmas Eve Sunset

So I lied about not being back on today ... the boss let me finish early today so took the opportunity to whizz down to one of my favourite beaches near home (and work) to catch the sunset.

If it's dreary, wet, overcast or otherwise dull weather where you are then take this little surprise, early, Christmas present from me to you.

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda

I probably won't be on much between now and the end of the day so wanted to take this chance to say thank you to all those that have interacted with me this past year.

It's been a real blessing to chat with you all and to receive your +1's on my images. There are far too many things and people for me to remember you all, so rather than name individually (and possibly offend by forgetting some) I will just say a group Diolch yn fawr and hope that this time of year is one of peace and relaxation for you and yours.

A Winter Frost

Was on  a stroll with the wife and youngest son yesterday - son was on his bike and did the "rookie" MTB circuit whilst we strolled the nearby path Said path follows the former Neath Valley railway and was in a very sheltered area.

Consequently there was lots of ice and frost around including this berry / fruit that still seemed to be hanging on to life after the summer. Captured with my latest optic for my Lensbaby, the fisheye, and I decided to make it a selectively coloured shot.

The Coming Storm

Been absent for a while ... busy, busy and too much rain as well. Makes this image appropriate.

Trust all your Christmas preparations are going well and I'd love to hear from any of you that want to chat about this image or indeed anything else. Namaste.

#coffeeethursday  comes early this week courtesy of +Mark Johnson cool composite.

Tagging in my fellow brew crewers +Jason Kowing +Sairam Sundaresan +Maki Silberberg and of course myself ;)

When I create photo composites, they sometimes materialize like pieces of a surreal dream.  It's fun to observe the process of unconscious thoughts crossing the threshold into consciousness and mysteriously materializing as imagery in a scene.  Notice the coffee bean "river rocks" in the lower right corner quietly supporting this composite's theme.

It's beginning to look a lot like ....

When the stuffed teddies and lights come out I know Christmas is getting close.

It's also that time of year where my wife doubles our electricity bill - bah humbug :-)

Femto Photography

Think of this as Long Exposure photography in reverse and instead of capturing time over an extended period one is capturing smaller than nano seconds of time over an an extended number of frames.

10min of your life to be absolutely fascinated by what science is doing and, as the opening blurb says, could be used to build cameras that can look “around” corners or see inside the body without X-rays.

I shared a macro shot yesterday of our cactus plant flowering - an usunusual angle and approach from me. But here is that flower in full bloom along with the pot it resides in.

If I could change one thing....

I love this quote by P!nk - even though I don't personally suffer with voices in my head I do know there are many folks out there challenged by their own "voices".

The words are P!nk's, the image is mine and is a shot of our Christmas Flowering Cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) which sometimes flowers at Easter because it can!

How I made this shot: 
Lens: Lensbaby Composer with single glass optic and extension tubes. ISO100, 1/500s, flash set at 1/16th power and manually focused.

“What if I fall? Oh,but my darling,what if you fly?”
~ Erin Hanson

Spent the day ferrying 6 teenage girls to and from their away game of rugby in Carmarthen today. It really is quite scary hearing teenage girls talk .... conversations morphed from hot boys to ADHD to waking dreams to naming and grouping people in their schools plus much more!

Ultimately they lost today but put up a good fight along the way and as a pair of Red Kites came to visit us I thought the quote very apt. This is the best of the images I managed to snap ... I really am not a wildlife photographer and probably need a better zoom ...

#putoutyourbats  

RIP - Phillip Hughes (Australian batsman) & Hillel Oscar (Israeli Umpire) both died within a few days of each other by being struck with a cricket ball.

I don't recall this ever happening before and the hashtag is a tribute started in memory of Phillip with my addition of Hillel.

Victory Celebration

Tonight's sunset at one of my local beaches - met some fellow photogs for the first time but unlike me they weren't really prepared. They kept dodging the waves as opposed to me with my wellies. Moaned about the cold so I showed my gloves .... but that's not the victory I refer to.

Today my daughter's U16 rugby team beat one of their main rivals and they did it 'sans' captain who had been sin binned by her parents for underage drinking!!

I say celebrate everything.... even the small things.

#PLUSpost  +Robin Griggs Wood +The Arcanum 
Chuffed Reet Now I am

I just opened one of my many newsletter subscriptions - this one to Photography Monthly - and thought to myself ..."that image looks like one of mine". 

Sure enough it is mine. It doesn't mean anything other than the newsletter thought it worthy to list as one of their 'reader images' but it made me smile.

It's there because I entered it into their current competition and if you are a member of PM I'd be honoured if you popped over to: http://bit.ly/1uWLGIQ and voted it up a bit :-)

The reason I'm making this my #pluspost  for this week is twofold. First it was unexpected to see an image of mine like that and secondly I'd never have been confident to produce this kind of image let alone post it to a comp before joining +The Arcanum

Movember

I've been meaning to get this posted but finally remembering to do so. I'd be honoured if you would consider donating something towards this great annual appeal to get men to check their junk. 

Donate if you can and re-share if you can't.

'nuff said.

I've been off of the main stream of G+ for while so thought I'd re-surface and explain what's going on. As those of you that follow me may know I'm going through this thing that is "The Arcanum"

At present I'm at Level 6 where I have to undertake a challenge that sees me stepping outside of my comfort zone - I won't bore you with the details (unless you want to know) but I will say that the linked video has helped me see that my challenge is nothing in reality. To me it's a step into the unknown but the video is something that excites me and gives me confidence to keep moving forward and to keep on keeping on... as the quote on the associated website (http://bit.ly/1tV276N) says:

It's That Time Again

This weekend sees the start of the Autumn Internationals. Simply the best sporting spectacle bar none.  

I have to say I'm excited by the new look on the Wales team due to injuries (including the man pictured below) and can only trust they live up to expectations. Cymru am byth.
