Dear Google Plus. I was with you all the way. I was in there at the beginning. I was beta. I am now amazingly THIS close to jiggling the Google Plus app into nowhereland. It's nothing to do with the content, I enjoyed following so many talented artists, photographers and well, just some decent folks with an opinion. I've made friends online, and even met face to face as a result thanks to the power of G+ but yes, I am THAT close to jiggling that icon and hitting the cross. And why? Well, the screenshot below shows a random iPad scroll.... that often takes 2 or 3 seconds to fully complete rendering. In those two or three seconds while I wait for the page to render, my mind has wandered, and I am losing interest. You might say my connection is the problem, but do the same. On LinkedIn, Pinterest, Facebook, twitter, or anything that has a similar scroll and image density, and they're within the boundaries of fine. Of course everybody would love a faster connection, then faster still. But for now with what I have, this performance isn't good enough, and I am losing interest in what was once a brilliant platform for sharing, discussions, meeting and discovering beautiful photography.

Haven't done much photography lately, but this was from a trip up home a few months ago. Another one of my infamous road trips, where I just suddenly got the buzz to up and go and take my camera with me. This is On the road up through to Glencoe and I deliberately left early in the morning to catch the blue hour.

Elizabeth Castle, St. Helier, Jersey. Named after Queen Elizabeth I and designed to ward off cannon bearing French shipping as early as possible before they could get to the Jersey shoreline.

+Martin E. Morris Here's another woodland variety seen in the vicinity of the previous shot on the banks of The Tummel, Pitlochry, Scotland. Not claiming these to be good shots, in any way shape or form, as I'd like to have 1) gotten lower down and 2) used something other than a standard 18-55mm lens.

+Martin E. Morris Identification needed. I seem to remember the more colourful they are, the more likely they are to be poisonous. Is that right? Seen on the banks of The Tummel in Pitlochry, Scotland.

I'm looking forward to volume two one of these days, but I have a heck of a lot of travelling to do in the mean time. In the meantime I'll just have to sit back and enjoy my current book. Travel Photography by BeDoubleYou http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/5935173-travel-photography

The waters of the Tummel, held back by the Dam and Hydroelectric Power station at Pitlochry, and where a fish "ladder" helps the salmon to get back upstream to lay their eggs
