Michael Bonocore320,886_* SmugMug Is Looking For Your Cover Photos*_ Cover photos are bigger and better on Google+ now (http://bit.ly/WUbLtN), and, since I am in charge of updating our Google+ content I thought, hey, with all that space, why not feature YOUR photos in that prime real estate? Today, we are opening the door for your submissions. Each month, a panel of judges will pick one amazing photographer to feature on the @118357019708110162087 page to greet visitors.

To help get this party started, we have changed our cover photo to @112957708071337353347's amazing image, _"The Future Is Now"_, taken in Dubai, UAE. Elia is also our special guest judge for the first month of this cover photo hunt, and he can't wait to see the great images that we are confident you will submit! So, enough talking…how do you enter? *Sign up for the _SmugMug Cover Photo Submissions For April_ event. *Click the "Add Photos" Button in the event, and upload your submission.

More about this photo from @112957708071337353347 travel photography blog at www.blamethemokey.com  _"The Meydan Bridge is a VIP entrance to the Meydan Racecourse, a mega structure in Dubai that is able to accommodate over 60,000 spectators in a 1 mile long grandstand. It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too. I guess after Tom Cruise was finished driving over it in Mission Impossible 3, they really didn’t have a need to maintain it anymore. :)"_ Nikon D700  14-24mm  f/5.6  ISO 200SmugMug Cover Photo Submissions For April2013-03-08 00:00:00279

Lady Fran W8,208*Can you make an ordinary running kitchen tap look fab?* This challenge came about following a conversation in a thread with +Megan Huddle (thanks for the inspiration babe!).  Whilst on a recent trip to New Zealand, I got my very first 'soft milky water' shot of a stream, and purely by luck. I had no ND filter, no tripod, just good light and a little bridge to lean the camera on. See here - http://goo.gl/Vpz58 I'm now obsessed with trying out this kind of photography wherever I go. I'm searching for streams, waterfalls, beaches, you name it. +Megan Huddle suggested I could make anything look good (uber flattered).  .. and so the challenge came about. *A camera, an idea, and a plain old running tap in the kitchen sink.*     _Can you make it look fab?_    I think you can.  *Work your magic. Show us what you’ve got.* *Any camera, and setting, any processing.* *It’s all open to your imagination and creativity.* Sooooo, why not give it a go?  There's no prizes I'm afraid. No rewards. (Unless some super generous sponsor out there wants to throw something in as incentive.) Otherwise, it's all about the *glowing recognition, compliments and praise from your G+ peers.*  _Due date: 11:30pm, -Friday 8 December- Saturday 9 December_  ------------------------------------------------------------------------- PS PUBLIC EVENT! - Apparently one can't invite large numbers of guests to an event (ie big circles), soooo, please feel free to forward this around and get people involved. =)Photo challenge - A simple tap2012-12-08 13:30:0072

Katwijk Dunes Garage

On my recent visit to the North Sea to capture some new lighthouse images I visited the nice village Katwijk and was impressed by their wonderful dunes with a built in garage. 

It amazes me to see how dike construction created such a wonderful symbiosis of a  parking garage and coast line protection which seamlessly integrates into an almost natural appearing dune.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.___Check out Collections a great new feature to organize your posts here on G+
