The Giants Causeway... N. Ireland.. with its basalt polygonal columns from its volcanic activity 60 million years ago is a moody place in the fading light and has a dramatic effect on the senses. I love this place and always throws up new opportunities. Hope you enjoy this one! Its been a while since my posts. Enjoy your evening. Cheers.. Ian

Early morning sunrise on Strangford lough at Island hilI I set up around these remnants of an old jetty, I shot it with some negative space to the left and with the lack of cloud and the early mist gave it the simplicity feel I was after. Beautiful Morning!

Mussenden Temple near downhill,castle rock. Northern Ireland. 
I just printed this image into my exhibition range this week to 150cm x 75cm where I exhibited my work at the local art market in Belfast today with some pics over at  www.facebook.com/54degreesnorth 
This was one of the last places I visited on my road trip recently of this coastline during sunset on the north sea cliffs of the beautiful  Downhill beach and incoming Atlantic Ocean. After climbing over the wall to set up my shot my presence was made unwelcome from the local sea birds with various gulls bombing toward me and made my time on the cliff a little more precarious. It was along way down so I was sure to capture and find comfort in being on the right side of the wall. I guess it there for a reason! Obviously ;-)     curated #plusphotoextract   +Jarek Klimek

Another shot taken from my Antrim coast trip taken on Murlough bay placed in the north-eastern corner of Northern Ireland . This windswept tree overhangs one of its cliff faces pointing out to the Irish sea so I used a long exposure silhouetting the tree against the moving cloud and was pleased with the result once toned...

Whitepark bay quoted as one of the first settlements of man in Ireland. I headed up to the Antrim coast for 5 days on a photographic trip just recently and Whitepark bay is a must for some early morning long exposures with its primordial sea stacks, golden sandy beaches and fascinating array of stones .. I homed in on these 2 contrasting stones and took my chances in getting some of the incoming tide. Always enjoy my time at this beach and got quite a few shots before the sun came up.. Some more shots of this beach here www.facebook.com/54degreesnorth

Dawn on this beaut Lough Erne's Bay in County Fermanagh N.Ireland. The early mist and cloud at first light of this morning  was almost monochromatic and I got some nice shots but with the sun ascending things got colourful as I set up on the end of this Jetty for the next 10 mins or so.

Early morning from Scrabo Hill I was given a pretty dramatic light show with these huge shards of light bursting through a particularly misty morning down the miles stretch of the Ards peninsula in N.Ireland. Its a great vista with Scotland and Isle of white even visible on a good day but I homed in on this part as this seemed to be where the action was on this morning anyway..

Here is another shot for my latitude album feel free to explore :) This one from my trip up the Antrim coast in N'Ireland. Ballintoy's sea stacks give a primordial view up this coastline and with unsettled weather for a few days I was pretty stoked to see some colour again when they clouds cleared around dusk before I headed east. Camper van .. parked up not to far from here... so I was only too happy to explore in this light before dark..

2,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+

Part 2 of 4 (Ev-La)

Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333g

This is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the second circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ev-La. 

A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  

This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)

I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.

1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.

2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  

I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.

3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.

4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you are rude, I'll probably block you too.  I want to surround myself with positive uplifting people. 

5.  I like people who directly post their work here on G+.  If you primarily post links to Flickr, 500px, your blog, etc. I probably won't follow you.  G+ photos are larger and I don't want to have to leave G+ to consume a photo.  I also want to know that you are invested in the conversations around your photos here.

I haven't included myself in these circles but I have included +Photo Talk Plus which is the weekly hangout show that +Lotus Carroll and I do on Wednesday nights.  I've also included our two show sponsors +SmugMug and +Blurb Books.  Thanks to everyone who supports the show. 

Watch for the rest of this circle over the next 3 days and I'll share them all again when they hit 2,500 in the future.  Thanks to all photographers on G+ (not just the ones in my circle) for making this such an amazing place for photography on the web.

54 Degrees North Landscape Photographer and keen wonder lusting... Belfast
Introduction
I have fused two of my passions in life the great outdoors and photography that I express in my landscape images through the panoramic format. I then produce large bespoke fine art prints up to 3mtr for business and home interiors. You can also see some of my work here www.54degreesnorth.net
www.facebook.com/54degreesnorth

I have worked commercially and professionally in  photography and digital output for many years , studio and location work but I have found that Landscape photography is home for me. I get to travel around in my camper van,  kayak and climb mountains in between producing high res images, a beautiful combination!
