Swiss Photography Club G+95418 August 2012 (1 day)This photowalk leads us to the Big Aletsch Glacier. The glacier is located in the Bernese Alps, we will access it from the village Fiesch, Valais.We meet at 8 am, going up to Fiescheralp by cablecar. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to get to the glacier by an easy or medium hike (no uphill). At Märjelensee, a small restaurant is waiting for us. After lunch, we will take a tour on the surface of the glacier in a small group. We return to the village Fiesch in the evening by cablecar.LocationFiesch is located in the upper Valais, in 27km / 30 minutes distance from Visp. Fiesch is easily accessible by train and car.Meeting point / meeting timeWe meet at 8.00 am at the valley station of the cablecar directly in Fiesch.http://goo.gl/maps/Ms4IpWe buy tickets and take the 8.30 am cablecar up to Fiescheralp or Eggishorn.Ticket price Fiescheralp retour is CHF 26.20 (13.10 with half-tax)Ticket price Eggishorn / Fiescheralp retour is CHF 38.40 (19.20 with half-tax)Access hikeWe have two options:For perfect weather, we can take the cablecar up to Eggishorn top station for a magnificient overview over the Big Aletsch Glacier. We have to walk down a medium-steep trail down to Märjelensee (approx. 500 meter altitude difference, 1.5 - 2 hrs).In cloudy weather conditions, we hike directly from Fiescheralp to Märjelensee (2 - 3 hrs). There is almost no change in altitude, and we use a 800m long tunnel.MärjelenseeAt Märjelensee we will have lunch in the "Gletscherstube". After this, we walk down to the Big Aletsch Glacier, passing several lakes.The glacier walkA limited group of 10 people will be guided on the surface of the glacier. If time permits, we will walk to the middle moraine stream of this wonderful glacier. Outstanding photos are guaranteed! Please note that there are some reservations already.Return hikeWe have to leave the Märjelensee area latest at 4 pm in order to catch the last afternoon cablecar at 6 or 6.30 pm. Anyone who likes to stay longer or have dinner in a restaurant at Fiescheralp can take the last cablecar down at 9.45 pm (no cablecars between 6.30 pm and 9.45 pm).Gear for the hikeWhat should you wear? Well, you definitely should bring hiking boots (simple running shoes are not sufficient). If you have a pair of hiking poles, bring them. Make sure you have some light gloves, a cap and a jacket available as the evening can get cold. A spare shirt is comfortable as well. That's it.Gear for the glacier surface walkIf you are confirmed participant of the glacier surface walk, you need some durable gloves and long pants as the glacier surface is really sharp edged. Also bring band-aid and a small bandage for first aid. Important: As weAletsch Glacier Walk2012-08-18 08:00:0012

Gailen Mapes73,148Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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. 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   #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.2014-12-09 12:00:00129000

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0If your a bird lover like I am, or if you simply love excellent photography, I highly recommend that you add these fine photographers to your circles. Although this circle is not completed it is the circle of fine photographers who have had one of more photos shared on the all new #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds page.  Please note that this circle will continue to expand and will be re-shared as it grows. Just a note of appreciation to all these fine photographers, thanks for allowing me to share your fantastic work. I will be away for a few days ( until Nov. 24th ) and will not be able to post any additional photos until my return.  Sharing this circle is highly encouraged and appreciated, adding the hash tags to my page is appreciated as well, but please know it is not required to be showcased here. If you are a photographer of birds and have high quality photos you share publicly, please consider adding #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds to your circles, as it will help me find you in the future. Lastly, to all the fine bird loving photographers, may you be blessed with more and greater captures,Respectfully,+William Joers 2014-11-18 13:54:1216714417

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   #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.2014-11-09 11:33:10131614

A hyena at sunrise

scanning the horizon for the sight of some potential prey. Although hyenas are usually regarded to be scavengers, they are quite successful hunters in their own right, catching their prey with their teeth rather than the claws. Hyenas are primarily nocturnal animals, but sometimes venture from their lairs in the early-morning hours.

The Namaqua chameleon

has adapted in an amazing way to cope with desert conditions. It excretes salt from nasal glands to conserve water and digs holes to aid the thermoregulation. Change color helps to control temperature, becoming black in the cooler morning absorbs heat more efficiently than a lighter grey color to reflect light during the heat of the day. I found this one in the middle of the Namib desert.

Excited twittering

alerted us to the sighting: 4 adult wild (or African painted) dogs were accompanying a whole creche of young pups crossing the road. They were chirping and jumping around excitedly and it was certainly no easy task to keep them together. We enjoyed the sighting for a few brief minutes only before they again disappeared into the tall grass on the other side of the road, this being the only reasonable photo I managed to capture of the scene. As it, however, was a rare sighting of young animals of an endangered species, this image triggers a special memory for me.

in Sossusvlei, hoping that the picknick spot might yield some juicy morsels. Jackals can survive quite well in the harsh desert conditions by feeding mainly on rodents.

Patterns in the dunes

The wind and animals leave patterns on the sand of the huge dunes lining the coast of Namibia.
I used to work in Walvis-Bay many years ago, traveling there from Swakopmund on a daily basis. It was fascinating to witness the artistic looking patterns of and on the dunes, only there for a short time before the elements and animals again created a new piece of art.

Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei (Namibia) is an area characterized by the highest sand dunes in the world. The dunes have colors of vivid pink-to-orange, a result of a high percentage of iron in the sand. The oldest dunes are those of a more intense reddish color.

Being nurtured, this elephant calf looks so at peace with the world and itself. Little does it know about lurking hazards and the on-going elephant poaching across the African continent.

It's world rhino day today
enticing me to post an image of a black rhino that I took in Namibia recently. Black rhinos are smaller, have pointed snouts and are more aggressive than white rhinos. They are also browsers and you can see this one feeding on a thorn bush (and not grass as the white rhinos do). If you examine a black rhino's droppings, it is interesting to see that twigs are chewed off at an angle of 45°.

An African painted dog
crossing the Olifants River (KNP, South Africa). These Cape hunting dogs are unique to Africa and are endangered as they face shrinking room to roam and are quite susceptible to diseases spread by domestic animals. They have only four toes per foot, unlike other dogs and live in packs that are usually dominated by a monogamous breeding pair.

The African penguin  

is also widely known as the "jackass" penguin for its donkey-like bray.  Like all penguins it is flightless, with a streamlined body, and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine habitat. It has distinctive pink patches of skin above the eyes, which help them to cope with changing temperatures. When the temperature gets hotter, the body of the African penguin sends more blood to these glands to be cooled by the air surrounding it. This then causes the gland to turn a darker shade of pink. 
The African penguin is a pursuit diver and feeds primarily on fish and squid. Once extremely numerous, the African penguin is declining due to a combination of threats and is classified as endangered. It is a charismatic species (Wikipedia).

An impala-oxpecker coalition?

Oxpecker/mammal interactions are the subject of some debate. They were originally thought to be an example of mutualism, but recent evidence suggests that oxpeckers may be parasites instead. Oxpeckers do eat ticks, but often the ticks have already fed on the ungulate host and no statistically significant link has been shown between oxpecker presence and reduced ectoparasite load. Oxpeckers have been observed to open new wounds and enhance existing ones in order to drink the blood of their perches (Wikipedia)

Giraffes emerging from the sand dunes

Giraffes were introduced into the Kgalagadi.Transfrontier Park, an arid, semi-desert area, a few years ago. Surprisingly, they seem to thrive quite well here, disappearing into the sand dunes over night and reappearing to forage on the few trees in the dry river bed during daytime. Adaptation is the magic word here. Even though their geographical location doesn't seem to be a giraffe paradise, they seem to find enough food to not only survive but to look rather healthy.
Perhaps you're also in a situation that seems rather problematic. Don't despair: Adapting to this situation in an ingenious way might just make you stronger :)

On the go

When active, wild dogs are usually on the go in a fast trot (all 4 feet in the air in this image), looking for prey and using the roads for easier progress.The African wild dog is an endangered species due to habitat loss and poaching. It uses very large territories (so can persist only in large wildlife protected areas), and it is strongly affected by competition with larger carnivores that rely on the same prey base, particularly the lion and the spotted hyena. Like most members of the dog family, it is a cursorial hunter, meaning it pursues its prey in a long, open chase. These chases may occur at great speeds of up to 66 km/hr. Nearly 80% of all wild dog hunts end in a kill; for comparison, the success rate of lions, often viewed as ultimate predators, is only 30% (information gleaned from Wikipedia).

Teamwork
You can learn a lot about teamwork just by watching a cheetah coalition. These two brothers started off by jumping on to a termite mound together. This enabled them to see beyond the high grass and scan the area for potential prey, four eyes spotting more than just two (Kruger National Park, South Africa).

Envy
Can you see the envy in the eyes of the crouching lion and the expression of a proud owner in the face of the standing lion?  The standing one had (unfortunately!) found a soft-drink can and was transforming it into a somewhat flatter shape. This piece of metal was something new to these young lions and since there was only one of it, the interest in it grew even more. It reminded me of scenes at a sale with a limited number of discounted objects.

Patience is a virtue that animals and birds demonstrate very often. This Malachite kingfisher was patiently waiting for breakfast to swim along, concentrating on the water and not moving.

Roadblock

I encountered this roadblock on my last morning in Kruger: Four healthy looking young lions. Lion numbers have dropped alarmingly over the last few decades and are continuing to drop even further. Trophy hunting and lion bones for "medicine" are taking their toll. How much longer will we be able to have sightings like these in the wild? For

For me it's always difficult to leave the Kruger National Park even though it poses a bigger challenge for wildlife photography than most other wildlife destinations. This year, I went in summer, when it's hot, the grass is high and the bushes are dense. This leopard was only one of several wonderful sightings on my on my way out, it almost seemed as if the animals were bidding me farewell.

Competition at the waterhole

It's not easy for a jackal to catch a drinking dove or sandgrouse for breakfast at the waterhole. If competitors come along, it only complicates matters further, causing tempers to flare (Kgalagadi).
