For #mybeautifulearth
#land   #sea  

I don't share many colourful images much anymore, certainly not regularly anyway, so for this special #earthday  event with TIME and +Google+ I'm raiding my archives and posting this image from "my corner of the world"...

Images of a young Kestrel spotted in our stables. It seemed a little dazed, probably not in the best of health...

For +F Stop Lounge I had the pleasure of looking at a quality new periodical Land|Sea: Volume 1 from Triplekite Publishing (www.triplekite.co.uk).
Check out the full details and what I thought of this publication featuring UK based photographers "doing their own thing" Joe Wright, Valda Bailey, Al Brydon, +Giles McGarry and Finn Hopson over at +F Stop Lounge!
Great Britain seems to be the source of a new movement of independent publishers bucking the trend of digital consumption, as two outstanding printed publications have been released in the last few...

Thanks to +Simos Xenakis and his recent image "O" (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SimosXenakis/posts/a8ijWLApGRP) for providing me with the inspiration to return to this abandoned shot and finish it.

 I like your experimentation with the close overlapping of the exposures.

+Andy Gray You and me both - it gives me the space and time to take in my surroundings while I'm waiting for the clock to tick down!

Still Standing

The very weathered 4000 year old stone circle at Duddo, Northumberland.
As it sits in the middle of a field it will always be surrounded by various crops, yesterday when I was there the growth and sown angle of this years crop was too perfect not to make this image!


Liked it too much not to add it to the shop straight away!

Northumberland UK based Photographer and other things - http://photos.andrewsgray.com
Introduction
Northumbrian born and bred. Photography and Design is how I make my pennies these days. Always hopeful of a large lottery win though!

When I joined Google+ I didn't put my Photography front and centre in my business, but after participating in the community here my photography has improved massively and has given me the confidence to push it further, recently opening an online store photos.andrewsgray.com

I continue to develop my style snapping the wild landscapes around me here in Northumberland, recently I have ventured into the realms of Long Exposure photography and Macro Photography.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I am a regular panellist on Midweek Photo Talk, a recorded hangout that is usually recorded at 8pm CET on Wednesdays. Drop me a line if your are interested in taking part. We are always looking for new people to join our discussions and features.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I was there in the original Hangout where Virtual Photo Walks started to be dreamt up, tagging along as John Butterill wandered around his neighbourhood  looking for wildlife to Photograph. Amazing to watch then, and just mind blowing to see the corners of the earth we've been since! Perth, Rome, Singapore, the mountains of Utah, even the Google Campus! etc etc.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I also submitted an image for the Google+ inspired Plus One Collection charity book raising money for the charity Kiva. This image features in the eBook version.
