I recently found this shot from 2011, I have so many images that are forgotten and never get edited. I kinda liked this and thought it deserved some attention. Hope you like it too.

I've been searching through my images for an exhibition I'm doing in September, my first solo exhibition, and I came across this shot taken in December last year. Another one of those 'forgotten' shots, but I remember the day well, got some good shots that day. I plugged in my wide angle lens for this one which is something I very rarely do in woodland, but I think it worked well here.

Roses? Anyone?

I found a field of roses today, I asked the farmer if I could jump the fence and take some photos... he said yes!

Day 4 #fivedaybokehchallenge  

Thanks to +Sylvia Ting for the invitation. I would like to invite +Rosie Nixon to join the challenge and shoot some bokeh... I think this is what you do best.

Rules are very simple:
Post 5 shots for 5 days and invite someone to join along each time you post. Mention the person who invited you and include the hashtag for the challenge also.

Have fun!

All five of my shots will be new ones, taken just for this challenge. This one and the previous three were shot at a local park one evening last week, a short walk from home. They leave the grass uncut over a large area which is great for the bug life. This is a very common and widespread grassland butterfly in the UK called a.......

You're welcome +Rosie Nixon . I've enjoyed the challenge and it's been nice to have a 'brief' to work on. Yes, lovely bokeh from my 105mm macro lens, I should use it more often! Thanks for accepting my invite.... I will look forward to seeing your shots. :)

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.
