Red Rose

Red Rose

Red Rose by Jason Swain. Does exactly what it says on the tin! Apart from the square crop, this is pretty much SOOC (straight out of camera) with no tinkering required. A little ray of sunlight had found its way through the pine trees in my garden, and had picked out this single red rose for […]


Fibonacci Spiral – Ranunculus Red on Green.

Fibonacci Spiral - Ranunculus Red on Green.

Fibonacci Spiral – Ranunculus Red on Green by Jason Swain. It’s the first year we’ve had Ranunculus growing in our garden and i’m loving photographing them. There seems to be a lot of variety and possibilities as they unveil themselves to the world. I’m drawn here to the strong complimentary colours of the red / orange […]


Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

Lest we forget by Jason Swain. I didn’t forget remembrance day 11/11 I’ve been away, but I held my own minutes silence at the right time And now i’m home, i found a suitable poppy tribute in the archives. Many people have paid a terrible price for our freedoms, the very least we can all […]


Plant Sexuality

Plant Sexuality

Plant Sexuality by Jason Swain, something vibrant and sexy to help blow away those monday blues on a very grey, wet and windy morning here on the Isle of Wight. I don’t know what the name of this tree / plant is, i first asked for an ID about three years ago on flickr but […]


Red Poppy Kisses

Red Poppy Kisses

By Jason Swain. I couldn’t help thinking of lipstick when i saw the water droplets and rich reds in this poppy macro shot with the Canon f2.8 100mm lens on the 7D body. And Red Poppy Kisses seemed like a perfect title Red Poppy Kisses, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. ———————————– ©2012 Jason Swain, All Rights Reserved […]

Bumble Bee Number 1733, this is poppy traffic control, you have permission to land.

Bumble Bee

By Jason Swain. Having a look at this years crop of poppies through a different lens again, this time its with the Canon 100mm macro, and after the experiments with the 50mm and long-exposures, its just a nice simple Bumble Bee in flight shot, where i wanted the bee to be in focus with a bit […]


The Birds and the Bees

The Birds and the Bees

I’m always thinking of the birds and the bees, and to that end I’ve been cultivating this patch of poppies outside my house for several years. When i say cultivate, in reality i mean i just look at them and they do all the hard work growing by themselves. This year we have a super […]


Backlit Bokeh Wednesday

backlit bokeh

One from the archive shot with the old nifty fifty (Canon 50mm f1.8), i might have to learn to love it again as i’m probably not getting the f1.2 anytime soon. Still the Backlit Bokeh works pretty well here at f1.8 and with decent light the little lens still performs very well. Backlit Bokeh Wednesday, originally uploaded […]

Fibonacci spiral from the Floral Photo Gallery

You spin me right round, Like a record baby right round…. 80’s flashback title alert!

So here’s a classic […]

But i’ve been distracted lately, and waiting for inspiration to grab me with my choice of xmas image. I toyed with several ideas and […]

Red, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. I’ve only managed to get out there and squeeze in one day of ‘autumn’ shooting this year, pretty sure its all gonna be blown away after weather we’ve had here for the last few days. But i did manage to find one tree doing a bit of showing off before […]


Lensbaby Rose Transatlantic Geeky CSS ‘white flash question’ Bokeh Wednesday

Lensbaby Rose Transatlantic Geeky CSS ‘white flash question’ Bokeh Wednesday, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. OK, to explain the Transatlantic geeky CSS white flash question? The background to this is that i’m trying out a new format* for this site, and i’m seeing white flashes when navigating between pages here in the UK, but a few […]


Flight of the Bumblebee, Lensbaby remix

Flight of the Bumblebee, Lensbaby remix, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. Shooting these guys was a real challenge with the old manual focusing lensbaby 2.0, but the harder it was the more rewarding it felt to actually get the shot i had in my minds eye. I just checked the exposure of this and the last […]
