Gailen Mapes73,264Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R - 10 of 31Note: 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 7th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-10 11:31:5773000

Graeme McRae36,119Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see lots of new posts in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then you might want to reshare it to get more followers. It's a circle of people I started following during the 1st quarter of 2014, 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, 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 (or funding). 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 is 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.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoyi2014-11-30 23:50:064975314

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 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. 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 +2014-09-10 10:30:23753010

The Golden Ears

    Last week I visited Brae Island Regional Park in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.  It was one of those days where I was expecting cloud cover for the whole day, but I quickly ditched my photography plans when the clouds started clearing from the Golden Ears Mountains (Mount Blandshard) and some nice sunset light emerged.

Top 10 Photographs of 2014

    We tend to call these things a top 10 list but really for me this is more of a list of personal favourites.  As in previous years I will be sharing my top 10 to close out the year here on G+.  This photograph was made in Sasquatch Provincial Park just outside of Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada.  This is Trout Lake Creek in the late spring.

Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus)

    Someone reshared this photograph of a Snowy Owl at Boundary Bay in Delta, British Columbia recently and it reminded me I probably haven't shared it in several years.  This remains one of my favourite wildlife photographs partly due to the results but also due to the time and patience required to obtain it.  I still haven't written a big post on photography ethics concerning wildlife I promised back in 2012 (http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/snowy-owl-bubo-scandiacus/).  Mostly because the previous times I have started on it I get too ticked off at the subject to continue.  Some day - soon (maybe).

Anyway, this seemed like a good time to share another wildlife photograph with #wildlifewednesday

Mount Cheam

    Mount Cheam is a familiar sight for anyone who lives in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada.  I photographed Cheam (left) and nearby Mount Archibald (right) early in January 2013 after a fresh dusting of snow.  The alpenglow and sunset I was anticipating never materialized, but I did get some nice blues from the sky after sunset regardless.  My blog post shows another photograph from this evening:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-cheam-panorama/

Moon over the Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver

Compositions omitting the moon looked strange with the reflection in the water so I included it for this photograph.  Sorry, no photoshopped-in moons here.  :)

Mount Redoubt in the North Cascades

    A photograph from earlier this month at Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park.  Mount Redoubt itself is across the border in Washington State's North Cascades National Park, however.  Always a nice place to photograph when there is a lot of snow on the mountains.  I was looking for Bald Eagles, but that didn't quite work out.  More about this in my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-redoubt-chilliwack-lake-2/

Silver Lake and Hope Mountain

    This is a photograph of Silver Lake and Hope Mountain at sunset from a few years ago. This lake is somewhat sheltered in the North Cascade mountains so I have been quite successful in getting nice reflections from its surface.

    I used this photograph for the Canadian cover of my 2015 Nature Calendar, and it is also the October image for both versions (CDN and US) of the calendar.  You can order the calendar here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/mrussellphotography

Austin Pass Lake

    A photograph from the Heather Meadows area of the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State.  After photographing some wider views, I saw that these cloud patterns looked a bit like they were flowing out of the inlet stream at one end of Austin Pass Lake. I waited a few minutes for the clouds to get in a better position and made this photograph.

Rolley Lake Provincial Park

    Often photographers try to simplify a composition to show just the essential elements in a scene.  I photographed this unnamed creek flowing into Rolley Lake in Rolley Lake Provincial Park specifically because of the chaos here.  Branches every which way, rocks and boulders, fallen trees, stumps, obvious signs of logging - not a very "simple" scene at all but representative of what that forest looks like.

Heather Meadows

    When I was up at Heather Meadows in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest about a month ago I saw this picnic table with a great view. I had already stopped at Picture Lake to eat my soup for dinner, but this table at the Austin Pass Picnic Area with an excellent view of Canadian Border Peak, Yellow Aster Bute, American Border Peak and Mount Larrabee would have been a great spot as well. 

More photographs from Heather Meadows are in my blog post here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/heather-meadows-north-cascades/

Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus)

    Last week I photographed this Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus) on the trail to Table Mountain in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State, USA.  As with most of my wildlife photography, this was an opportunity I happened upon rather than directly seeking it out.  Wildlife was not on my mind but there were 3 of these Grouse foraging near the trail.  Well camouflaged, I didn't even see them until one of them flew out of my way from the edge of the trail.  I switched lenses and got ahead of their direction of travel, and they walked right past me.  There are a lot of visitors here, so they are likely used to people, but it is still always better to let wildlife approach your position than the other way around.

Mount Shuksan

    On Thursday last week I took advantage of a mostly sunny day to go to Heather Meadows and Artist Point at the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State, USA.  The fall colours at Heather Meadows were better than I'd seen before but I lingered too long (again) and found myself rushing around a bit at Artist Point (again) to find a good spot to photograph.  My previous attempt at photographing a reflection in this tarn was tough as there was little water in it - so I settled on this as my sunset spot. I would call this an iconic location, though it doesn't get nearly the traffic, luckily, as Picture Lake just 2.6 km (1.6 miles) from here.

The Golden Ears

    Last week I visited Brae Island Regional Park in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.  It was one of those days where I was expecting cloud cover for the whole day, but I quickly ditched my photography plans when the clouds started clearing from the Golden Ears Mountains (Mount Blandshard) and some nice sunset light emerged.

Widgeon Peak from the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve

    Another photograph I made a few weeks ago in the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Candada (in addition to my post last week).  I think this location will be one of many I visit when the fall colours get going (if they do) here in the Fraser Valley.

Just over 3 years ago I started #mountainmonday here on G+.  3 years has gone by quickly!  I wanted to thank everyone for participating over the past 3 years, and look forward to your Mountain Monday posts today and into the future.  :)

Welcome to the first week of Mountain Monday .

The way this works is each Monday we post our mountain related photos being sure to include the tag of #mountainmonday somewhere in the text. You can see all the other #mountainmonday posts by doing the following search: https://plus.google.com/s/mountainmonday/posts (you can then sort by most recent). A listing of all the weekly photography themes can be found on +Eric Leslie's website: http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/

This photograph was made after a storm had cleared from the Cascade mountains near Hope, British Columbia. I was fortunate to emerge here after hours of driving in the rain at the perfect time. This is Silver Lake in Silverlake Provincial Park, with Wells Peak in the background.___Just over 3 years ago I started #mountainmonday here on G+.  3 years has gone by quickly!  I wanted to thank everyone for participating over the past 3 years, and look forward to your Mountain Monday posts today and into the future.  :)

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.
