If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

Graeme McRae24,994Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+* If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. It's a circle of people I started following a few months ago, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest. On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will start to notice your reshares, and they will engage with you, and then Google+ will "notice" (it's a computer, but let's anthropomorphise, shall we?) you and suggest you to others, who will then follow you.No, really. How can I get in your circle?. . . First, unfollow me, then wait, oh, about a week. Spend that week posting a shitload of interesting things. Then follow me. Since you're so interesting, Google+ will notify me that you followed me (G+ doesn't notify me about every follower). I'll look at your posts, find one interestin2014-05-04 21:03:52371111319

Gailen Mapes62,504Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  R - 10 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-10 10:40:13841011

Mount Rainier's Shadow

    I had seen a few photographs with the shadows of mountains at sunrise and sunset before, but hadn’t give it much thought in terms of finding this phenomenon myself. It was on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park last August I saw this for the first time.  The dark blue in the sky is the shadow of Mount Rainier cast down towards Stevens Valley and the Cascade mountains to the east.  More photos from my hike to Mazama ridge here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mazama-ridge-mount-rainier-np/

Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve and the Coast Mountains

    A few weeks ago I headed to the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Candada to check out potential for fall colours, and to photograph the northern lights should they show up (they didn't).  This is Gloomy Peak and parts of the Coast Range reflected in a pond along the Pitt River.  A familiar spot for me, but I did like the light here after sunset even if it was rather brief.

Mount Cheam and Harrison Hot Springs

    I was out at this spot on Friday chasing what would be a non-existent Aurora borealis display and showed a friend this photograph of what the area looked like in the winter.  This is Mount Cheam towering behind some beachfront condominiums along Harrison Lake in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia.

Cruise Ship in Vancouver

While going through some older images and catching up on keywording I found this panorama of a cruise ship docked at Canada Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  At the time I didn't know how to stitch together a pano, so this one was left untouched until I found it again recently.  Looks like I managed to catch the HeliJet in the background too - it flies from Vancouver to a number of destinations on Vancouver Island.  More about this in my blog post:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/cruise-ship-vancouver/

Silver Lake Provincial Park

    Well, it isn't here yet, and it may not be for a month but I am looking forward to fall colours in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia.  This is a photograph of Silver Lake Provincial Park I made back in 2012 with some decent Bigleaf Maple colours.

Columbian Ground Squirrel (Urocitellus columbianus)

    This Columbian Ground Squirrel (Urocitellus columbianus) is NOT dead - just having a good back scratch!  Back in May 2012 I was in the Lightning Lakes area of Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.  While observing the Ground Squirrels this one kept rolling on its back and kicking its legs (just like you'd see a dog scratch its back).  I didn't have the presence of mind to make a video of this, but did shoot an image sequence that sort of shows what was going on:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/columbian-ground-squirrels-u-columbianus/

Hedley, British Columbia

    I passed through Hedley, British Columbia on a trip through the BC interior back in 2009. Hedley is an old mining town, and is located at the bottom of "Nickel Plate Mountain" which you can see here. There are many great photo opportunities along the Crowsnest Highway - the Similkameen River run along side quite frequently and there are a number of small Provincial Parks with some nice scenery.

Oval Leaved Blueberries

The Oval Leaved Blueberry (Vaccinium ovalifolium) bushes on the Flower Lake Loop Trail in British Columbia's Mount Seymour Provincial Park were covered in berries.  Not nearly as sweet as the ones I am used to from my backyard, they seemed to be popular with the birds and hikers too.  I'm sure the bears are currently eating a lot of blueberries for their pre hibernation diets.

Corn Lily/False Hellebore (Veratrum viride)

    A Corn Lily I found along the Flower Lake Loop Trail at Mount Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Not exactly a subject that is brand new, but I did have fun finding various angles from which to photograph this one a few weeks ago.  A few more images from around Flower Lake can be found on my recent blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-seymour-flower-lake/

Mount Webb At Chilliwack Lake

    I am looking forward to photographing some fall colour again.  This photo is from Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada last year.  Mount Webb had some fresh snow on it, even though the evening at this lower elevation seemed quite warm.  More about this on my blog post here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/chilliwack-lake-fall-color/

Mount Cheam during Blue Hour - Mountain Monday

    A few years ago I was in the Eastern Fraser Valley looking for some new angles from which to photograph Mount Cheam.  I found favourable spot near the Fraser River and the Aggasiz Bridge and photographed the peak just after sunset.

Nicely designed presentation. You just need to keep scrolling down (and a mouse with a scrollwheel is nice;-)

Quote: "...to produce 1 kilogram of boneless beef we need 15400 liters (4074 US gallons) of water."

Highly relevant if you look at California's drought right now...

Nisqually Glacier on Mount Rainier

This is one of Mount Rainier's many glaciers - the Nisqually Glacier as photographed from the Nisqually Vista Trail at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State, USA. You can clearly see the terminus of the glacier here as well as the start of the Nisqually River from the glacier's melting ice.  As with many other glaciers around the world, the Nisqually Glacier is in a state of retreat currently.

Mount Rainier's Shadow

    I had seen a few photographs with the shadows of mountains at sunrise and sunset before, but hadn’t give it much thought in terms of finding this phenomenon myself. It was on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park last August I saw this for the first time.  The dark blue in the sky is the shadow of Mount Rainier cast down towards Stevens Valley and the Cascade mountains to the east.  More photos from my hike to Mazama ridge here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mazama-ridge-mount-rainier-np/

Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park

    A panorama of the Tatoosh Range and the wildflowers on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State, USA.  I made this photograph from the Lakes Trail on Mazama Ridge last August.  In about a month this will likely be what the area looks like again, as the snow is almost melted now (at least it appears to be on the Paradise webcams).  I did a write up of my hike last year to Mazama Ridge on my blog, including some other photographs of the area here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mazama-ridge-mount-rainier-np/

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

For today's Bird themed Wildlife Wednesday I have a photograph of a Great Blue Heron I made a few years ago at the Capilano River in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Herons are pretty easy to photograph, and this one stood still long enough for me to do some longer exposures to blue the water in the background.

I wrote a blog post about shutter speed and this photograph.  Compare this to the one with a faster shutter speed - the difference is dramatic.

Mount Rainier National Park Sunset

  I made this sunset photograph last year while on my first ever hike on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park. Generally speaking, sunsets are what I have my back to (or my side to) when I am photographing at this time of day.  Once the sun was below the horizon on this particular evening, however, I did enjoy the light over the Cascade Range to the south of Mt. Rainier.  

You can see a few other photographs I made from Mazama Ridge earlier that evening here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/rainier-wildflowers-mazama-ridge/

Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis)

    Last week I spend a day exploring Sasquatch Provincial Park near Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada.  I did some hiking, and in hiking to a beach on Hicks Lake I found several Garter Snakes basking in the sand along the shore.  Not my intended subjects, but as a wildlife photography opportunist, I was happy to take advantage of the opportunity.  I used my longest lens with a 1.4x extender so I wouldn't have to get close enough to these snakes to disturb them.

Harrison Lake and the Lillooet Range

    I spent Friday photographing much of Sasquatch Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.  At the end of the day I had hoped to pick up some sunset light and then blue hour over the Cheam Range, as I did earlier in the year ( http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/harrison-hot-springs-mount-cheam-range/ ).  This was not to be, however, so I photographed some of the sunset light in the clouds over Harrison Lake, Echo Island and the Lillooet Range instead.  More to come soon from my trip on Friday!

    This photo is from a trip to Biggs Park in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada just over a year ago.  The freighter was in "the way" of some of the compositions I'd wanted, so I just embraced what was there and went with it.  I was lucky to get some good light.  A bit more about this freighter on my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/nanaimo-harbour-sunset/

Steelhead Falls Part II

    A second photograph from Steelhead Falls in Mission, British Columbia.  Last week I posted a more direct view of this falls.  This version is slightly upstream and a side view - and I like the variety of foliage around it vs. my original photograph.  There were several other vantage points I would love to photograph from, but falling down a cliff just wasn't part of my hiking schedule last week.  :)
