Gailen Mapes61,031Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  M-O - 19 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mape2014-03-19 10:28:06176326CC G+

Tara Meyer-Robson3,023HIGHER THOUGHT/INSPIRING CIRCLE Created by +Tara Meyer-Robson  (1st Edition)This is my first circle share, so I wanted to make it a great one! Please SHARE and LIKE to be added to version 2! I’ve realized how important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that allow you to dream, that kick you in the behind on days when you are ready to give up, and who are always willing to look for the higher meaning in the lessons of life. In this group, you will find those that will do all of the above!This is a circle of truly amazing, intelligent, and spiritual individuals. Most people are either personal friends or others that I've been interacting with here in the few months I have been on G+ and I’ve connected with many of these people on other networks, too.  All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from all over the world and have many different backgrounds: some of them are authors, writers, bloggers, and creatives; all are inspiring people who love to connect to a higher frequency. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++If you’d like to be added to my circles, it’s very easy: you can certainly keep engaging with my posts, or keep sharing great content of your own or others.To connect with me, here are the other places you will find me: My Website: www.TaraMeyerRobson.comOn here, you can sign up to get a free healing meditation and to get the best I have to offer on how to shift your life and heal your body by understanding the underlying cause. That’s my passion and what I do best, so please feel free to connect with me there. Twitter: http://twitter.com/tarameyerrobsonFacebook: http://facebook.com/tarameyerrobsonLinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/tarameyerrobsonFor Authors: http://HowtoBeaBestsellingAuthor.comWhen my book first came out, I really struggled trying to get sales. Desperate to find an answer, I studied what other bestselling authors were doing to drive their books up the bestseller lists, and I put together a formula that I thought might work. It did, and it cost me almost nothing to do. After helping other authors do the same, I packaged the whole thing up so I could share the information with as many authors as possible. For Affiliates/Writers/Bloggers: If you are interested in earning 75% on my products, I am on www.clickbank.com  - here’s my Vendor Spotlight: https://theflow6.accounts.clickbank.com/spotlightProfile.htm?f=spot&v=theflow6. Right now, affiliates are making about $62 a sale on my Bestseller in 1 Day! Program. I offer a ton of Affiliate Tools, such as approved Google ads that have converted for me, a list of Google keywords, sidebar ads, and more.  If you are a writer or a blogger, this is a great opportunity for you to have a high-quality product to promote and monetize your blog. If you’ve never monetized your blog before, feel free to reach out to me and I’ll help. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++MY BRAND-NEW COMMUNITYMind-Body Healing for Everyone: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103956739698618922440Join us to learn how to translate what your body is te2014-03-12 19:34:34500311724CC G+
Gene Bowker66,115 The   #Alphabetcircles   Gene's Active Photographers on G+ Part Two: First Name D-GMeet 250+ more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names betweenD and G.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images Part One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBz2014-03-12 11:15:49268881774CC G+

Gailen Mapes56,556Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera M-O - 19 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 15th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...           Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:           https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about            #circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2013-12-19 11:31:56167408CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319CC G+

Blood Red Moon Lunar Eclipse Sequence
This is the first of several lunar eclipse sequences I shot earlier this week. They are difficult to assemble with the moon in exactly the proper place in the sky throughout the entire eclipse, but I am finally done with this first one. More info is available here: http://www.landscapeastrophotography.com/lunar-eclipse-blood-red-moon-sequence-over-joshua-tree-national-park/ Cheers and thanks for looking!

Blood Moon and Spica
Apparently, I'm not the first one to post a shot of this.  But I'm not the last, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.  The star Spica, in the lower right, is the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, and the 15th brightest star in the night sky. It is a blue giant located 260 light years from Earth.

"Zeus"


Yesterday I think that I officially proved that crab fishing is no longer the most dangerous job in the world. I think that I get myself into more trouble through landscape photography than any crab fisherman could get into. So yesterday I decided to make the two and a half hour trip out to the Columbia hills to photograph the wildflowers. I finally made it to the entrance of the remote park, and started down a 5 mile dirt road that led into the park. Chug, chug chug… about 2 miles in on a remote dirt road steam starts to Pour out from underneath my hood. Being completely car illiterate, I jumped out of my car, ran across the street, and waited for the car to self-destruct at any moment. I soon realized that the car had just overheated and I just needed to let it cool down and then add water (I think my car has a leak ). I called my trusty Papa who walked me through ite... more »

San Diego Skyline, Blue Hour
The pilings are from the old Reuben E. Lee sternwheeler floating restaurant, which sank after it was towed away for repairs.  I'm not sure what they're going to do at the east end of Harbor Island, but whatever it is, I hope they allow public access; it's one of the best places to see downtown San Diego.

Thank You
The best vantage point for getting tonight's full moon rising over downtown San Diego happened to be Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Point Loma.  Which left me, +John H. Moore and +Eric Larson standing in a cemetery at night lit only by the light of a full moon and the stars overhead.  And the first thought that came to me was, "Thank you."

I grew up in a military family.  My father was a Marine, having served during three wars, fighting on Iwo Jima, Saipan, Tinian and Korea.  Several uncles were either Marines or in the Navy.  We have three Marine Corps bases and three Naval bases in San Diego County.  Military blood runs deep around here. We have aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines, jets, choppers, artillery, drones, and space warfare.  And Navy Seals.  If another country picked a fight with San Diego, we'd win. Easily.

I recently joined a photography group to improve my black & white skills, and the first assignment was a self-portrait. Since I got up at O'dark-thirty this morning hoping for fog at one of my favorite piers -- which never materialized -- I figured I'd spend a few minutes working on the assignment. So here's six-seconds of me beneath Scripps Pier, trying not to sink too much as the outrushing wave washed sand out from under my shoes...

The Wave at Night
This past week, I've been sharing my "Top 13 favorite shots from 2013" in no particular order.  Except, I saved my favorite for last.

If it sometimes looks like my and +Phillip Colla's photos are almost identical, it's probably because he follows me around and places his tripod right where mine was.  Or maybe it's the other way around; I forget.  Anyway, he's an incredible photographer, and a great friend, so I'm happy to share his knowledge and his company.  This shot, like several others on my favorites list, was taken during our Super-banzai-no-sleep Arizona/Utah road trip in June.  At first I thought this was a self-portrait ('cause we took turns lighting the Wave), but it turns out the silhouette has much better calves than I.

Self-portrait; The Second Wave
This past week, I've been sharing my "Top 13 favorite shots from 2013" in no particular order.  Except, I saved my 2 favorites for last.  Here's the first.

This self-portrait was taken during my and +Phillip Colla's Super-banzai-no-sleep Arizona/Utah road trip in June, when we flew to Vegas, then drove over 1,200 miles in three and a half days, hitting the Valley of Fire, Zion National Park, the Wave, upper Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Natural Bridges National Monument, lower Antelope Canyon, then back to Zion to hike the Virgin Narrows before flatting out near Hurricane, missing our flight back from Vegas and having to drive back to San Diego at midnight.  All so you could look at this picture.  I thought it was worth a second look; I hope you do, too.

Usually, light pollution is unwanted.  Here, however, the lights of nearby Springdale, Utah nicely lit the face of the Watchman, without obliterating the beautiful galaxy in the background.

Imperial Beach Pier / Long Exposure
Counting down my Top 13 for 2013, in no particular order.
Imperial Beach has one of the most beautiful piers in Southern California, with its graceful mid-span rise, the cross-hatching of its pilings, the bell-shaped lamps, and the sloping roofline of the structure on the end.  I thought it would make a really nice subject for a super-long exposure shot, with a nod to +Joel Tjintjelaar's beautiful shot of Crystal Pier just north of here.  This was two minutes.

Imperial Beach has one of the most beautiful piers in Southern California, with its graceful mid-span rise, the cross-hatching of its pilings, the nice bell-shaped lamps, and the beautiful roofline of the structure on the end.  I thought it would make a really nice subject for a super-long exposure shot (which is did, and which I'll be re-sharing next).  This shot, however, was a nice added bonus.  The 6-second exposure allowed the waves blur a bit, but still shot as individual bands in the water.  And the surfers moved just enough in that time to add a nice, ghostly effect.

Mesquite Dunes
Counting down my Top 13 for 2013, in no particular order.
+Phillip Colla has many brilliant ideas when it comes to photography and photo trips.  Going to Death Valley in late July was not one of them.    "We'll shoot at night, and sleep in an air-conditioned hotel during the day."  Little did we know that it would be 119° with a 20-knot blast-furnace wind at Badwater at midnight.  We lasted less than 12 hours before we bailed to cooler climes.

Scripps Pier Sunset
Not much to say about this other than it was an incredible low-tide sunset, and I was there for it. :)

Star Trails over San Diego
I had no idea whether you could shoot a star trail shot over a major city, but the thought hit me one night so +Phillip Colla and I figured we'd go out and try it.  Most nights, this wouldn't work, but if you get a night with very low humidity, the air is much clearer and the reflected glow off the city lights is diminished.  Just be prepared to explain to the cops what you're doing at 4am standing around loitering for an hour or more...

Never Gets Old
As many times as I've shot this overworked view of Scripps Pier, I still love it.  The symmetry, the memories, the location, the times I've spent chatting with other photographers, and the sheer variety of different moods consistently framed by the never-changing-but-always-different pilings. This spot will always be high on my list, as seen here in a 30-second exposure taken in May.

"Rock and Tree, Light Painting and Light Pollution"
Another one from a fun trip up to Joshua Tree with +Sairam Sundaresan, +J. Rae Chip and +Kimber The Dog, this shot is straight out of the camera, with just a slight crop.

And Miles to Go
Bummer; the marine layer is back, sucking the life out of our sunsets.  We had a nice one up above; I could see it peeking through a hole in the grey mass of low clouds streaming over downtown from the coast.  Over there, it looked dark.  So, here's a detail shot from the other night, when we had a gloriously luminescent sunset.  See it large; it's much better.  Enjoy.

P.S.: This is a crop of a much, much larger shot; this comprises just 9% of the original image.

La Jolla Sunset
Last night, I was above it all. (Note the horde of photographers on the beach...)

Your Interesting Sky Optic for the Evening - Moon Dog

Tonight's almost full moon was accompanied by an odd glow in the sky tonight.  The best I can figure, it's a "Moon Dog".  

From Wikipedia: "A moon dog, moondog, or mock moon, (scientific name paraselene, plural paraselenae, i.e. "beside the moon") is a relatively rare bright circular spot on a lunar halo caused by the refraction of moonlight by hexagonal-plate-shaped ice crystals in cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. Moondogs appear 22° to the left and right of the moon. They are exactly analogous to sun dogs, but are rarer because to be produced the moon must be bright and therefore full or nearly full. Moondogs show little color to the unaided eye because their light is not bright enough to activate the cone cells of humans' eyes.

Except, this one, which formed in whatlo... more »

Five Minutes of Midnight
Last Friday night, +Phillip Colla and I drove up the coast to Laguna Beach for some night photography under an almost-full moon. It was pretty surreal, with Geminid meteors constantly shooting through the sky and one of the flattest oceans I've ever seen. And it was cold and wet, which made it hard at times to keep our lenses from fogging. This is a five-minute exposure of seal rock taken just after midnight.

The importance of planning good planning.
These two shots were taken with the same camera, less than a minute apart, looking in opposite directions.  I thought there would be some good color in the sky over downtown San Diego tonight.  Ummm... no.  And by the time the color materialized in the West, I wasn't near anyplace where I could really take advantage of it.

Shoulda gone to the coast...
Looking West, the clouds out my office window were epic, and had all the makings for a nice sunset.  But I couldn't leave early enough to make it to the coast, so I punted, and headed over to Coronado, hoping the color would make it into the Northeastern sky behind the skyline.  Nope.  The sky behind me was epic x ∞ +1.  In front of me?  Bland.  I waited until after sundown, but it never got good.  Finally, a few clouds moved over the city, but by then, all the color was gone.  Not even the wind would cooperate.  So, you get this over-saturated, color-temperature manipulated shot with half-good, half-lousy reflections.  It was good practice...

Photographer +Paul Lettieri was lucky enough to be at the Grand Canyon on the morning of November 29th. What he witnessed was nothing short of amazing. The entire canyon covered in a blanket of fog. 

Paul describes this rare phenomenon.

Grand Canyon experienced a rare temperature inversion, where cool air rising from the bottom of the canyon meets warm air from above, creating a layer of fog in the canyon. This happens about once or twice a year, but this particular inversion was a 10 year event, with clear skies above and the canyon full nearly to the brim with fog

WTF??  Is G+ going Facebook?  I'm starting to see posts from people who are not in my circles.  And this is not the "What's Hot" stuff; it's just a post. From someone I don't know. ?
