Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 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 Mapes2014-04-18 10:26:3467218CC G+

Pål Børsting29,263♥♥♥ Thank you circle no.2 of 5 containing Photo enthusiasts!  ♥♥♥ ☀☀ ☀To let you know that I appreciate the +1's. ☀☀☀☀☀☀ All of them handpicked by me. This is the real thing :-) ☀☀☀♥♥ And of course the resharers and commenters are here too. ♥♥Reshare if you like! Please plus to tell me you have seen it! *There is no need to thank me, this is me thanking you! *In this circle you will find both photographers and their followers. What they have in common is a passion for photos they like.This circle consists of the exceptional people who time and time again reshares, plusses and write nice comments on my photo posts. All of them are real active people, some have been active since I began sharing my photos and still are and some I have seen only for a shorter time.I have separated my Thank you circle into four circles. There is no difference between them except for different people to say thank you to.I already work on the next "Thank you circle"  So if you are missing here, you will be in it if you are active from this week. I do not expect you to like all my photos, so please only plus the ones you like! If I see you twice in a months time I will add you.The five circles is collected from middle of January until now. In parallel I am building a new circle that I started a month ago. In a months time the people in the new circle will be shared. The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use  #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share. They are here since they are appreciating my photos. You have to do your own selection after importing the circles.Please let me know if you somehow slipped through my masks. I am doing this in a combined automatic and manual way and I am old enough too know there might be errors. And there have been errors I have discovered. That is really the only thing that bothers me with this circles……..Have a look at this post for even more info on how this circles is made. https://plus.google.com/115491639983481019768/posts/iuYYSLzSH9G ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀  #circle #circles  #publiccircle #circleshare #circlesharing #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle  #sharingcircles  #sharedpubliccircles  #photography 2014-03-20 10:37:394889226149CC G+

The Path to the Mountains

One way to get to the Dolomites is to follow this lovely valley; you can see the peaks in the distance.  The other way is to ride the Funivia, as we were, a direct cable car to the towns above Bolzano.

The Narrow Space Between Storms

I remember saying to +Linda Villers a couple of years ago that landscapes were pretty far down the list for me as photographic inspiration.  That seems to have changed a great deal over the past year, thanks to friends who motivate me to get out to the coast to shoot, but especially thanks to +Sairam Sundaresan and his Storytelling Landscape Photography program.

At the time, it seemed like he gave us so much information that I thought I'd never make use of it all, but so many elements continue to work their way into my photography.  Sairam, with the support of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers, has made a huge gift to this community that continues to grow in so many ways.  Photographers, keep an eye out over the next few days for a new program, and consider becoming a mentor if you might be able to help others here.  #than... more »

The Tail Points the Way

I have no idea how these puffy white tails didn't get covered with Madagascar's red dirt; I'll never get it all out of my shoes.  This is Verreaux's Sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi), photographed in Berenty reserve; they are also known as the Dancing Sifakas because of how they move on two feet across the ground (for example, my Kung Fu Mom: https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5933913563025170673/5935084805404833234?pid=5935084805404833234&oid=104294083885937159989 ).  The IUCN considers the species Vulnerable, like most of Madagascar's lemurs.  They prefer large trees and a specific species of plant for food, so they're vulnerable to deforestation and habitat loss.

Moonrise over the Harbor

I don't do a great deal of planning for most of my photos; I'm fortunate to find potential shots everywhere I go (or said another way, I'm easily amused).  But this one I've been planning for, and I was planted in my spot tonight, waiting on the beach as people walked by with their dogs, giving me puzzled glances -- until the moon rose over the hill.  Because of the dense clouds, it's not exactly as I'd imagined; I'd hoped for some warm sunset light on the face of the old pier.  But I'm glad I have something to show for my plan, since I'm not likely to have any real chance at the eclipse later (due to cloud cover).  Special thanks to +Sairam Sundaresan for making sure I know what to plan for, on those rare occasions :-).

Planting Rice

We were in Madagascar just as the wet season was beginning, and saw people planting rice all over the country.  In this area, near Antananarivo, the process was farther along, and more of the fields were done.  As with everything there, little machinery means lots of hard work.

Spring Has Sprung

Our neighbor's roses are bursting out again, though this shot is from last year.  I almost never think to use filters on my lenses, but thanks to an assignment from +Sairam Sundaresan for his landscape mentorship, I took this with a circular polarizer.  I think it helped get nice color and prevent the sky from washing out.  I need something cheerful because I've been doing my taxes...

Purple Poise

I see so many elements in this image that I found striking about Madagascar.  One, as I think I've mentioned, was that many of the women wore bright, dramatic colors.  This outfit is accented by her wrap, which is actually from the election campaign for Hery, the eventual winner; this photo was taken just a couple of days after the first national elections since a 2009 coup.  Obviously the carrying of her burden on her head.  There's the red dirt and a baobab tree; there's also an incredibly rutted road (it gets much worse where I cropped a bit off to the left, and this is far better than most of the roads we saw). And her shadow tells me that she's walking away from town (in this case Morondava), even though it's just after sunrise, so either she left down before sunrise, or she's hiking some indeterminate but probably very long distance(th... more »

Made You Blink

The little guy sure had the spotlight on us!  These are Ring-Tailed Lemurs (Lemur catta), photographed in Berenty Reserve.  If you're wondering why I've posted so many photos from Berenty so far, a) it's an amazing wildlife preserve, and b) that's as far as I've gotten in working through my photos from the trip, though I've picked out some of my favorites already along the way.

Temple Fugit

I chose the title because this lovely little temple seemed like a dream that disappeared by morning.  I had gone for a night walk from my hotel in Gumi, after a busy and chaotic day, to find some peace.  Like magic, I found this soothing spot, in a golden forest ( https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5899374324068189969/5904815901001313906?pid=5904815901001313906&oid=104294083885937159989 ), near a calm lake ( https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5899374324068189969/5900584936716575218?pid=5900584936716575218&oid=104294083885937159989 ).  I'm surprised I haven't shared this one before.

Pointed Remarks

A detail from the Queen's Palace in Antananarivo.  The palace complex, planned to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was destroyed by fire in 1995 (possibly political arson, but nobody seems sure).  It still hasn't been completely restored; hopefully with the recent elections (the first since a 2009 coup), stability will return and the work can get done.

Update  These numbers are said by a Googler to be "since October 2012," which appears to resolve the inconsistency in my data.

Hi +Google+ Help, I just noticed the new "views" number on my profile page, which is very interesting, but I have a photo with more views than that all by itself, so the number shown must be profoundly wrong.  My profile shows a bit over 27.3 million views, while the photo linked below shows over 29.8 million:

Off to Market

We met this group on the road between Fort-Dauphin and Berenty -- apparently most of a village, with most of their zebu (cattle), heading for market.  It was hard to tell where they were coming from or going to exactly, because there weren't many towns of any size on the road; conceivably they were heading to Fort-Dauphin itself, which was many kilometers away.  We saw one group later in our trip that we learned had a three day journey on foot to bring their zebu to market.

Denial

"Timmy, where do you think all the seagulls have gone?  Don't you think it's funny that we hardly see them anymore?"

"Gosh honey, who cares?  More fish for us!"

"Well sure...  It's just that we keep seeing more and more photographers, and fewer and fewer seagulls around here...  Do you think it's caused by climate change?"

"It has been kinda warm this winter.  But I think the seagulls would evolve pretty fast -- certainly faster than the photographers.  Look honey, every time we go online, what do we see?  Seagulls and more seagulls -- it's like nobody even cares about cats anymore.  Who was that friend of yours?..."

Stargazer, Easter Island
I took hundreds of star photos on Easter Island last year; I'm only now getting through a lot of them.  I wanted to capture the special connection between the Moai and the incredible stars that spin above the island's dark skies. The Moai were toppled during wars on the island, almost always face-down, destroying the coral eyes that were their most sacred aspect. This toppled Moai, though, was looking at the stars.

The Crossing

So much more to post from Madagascar...  This is near the market between Antananarivo and the airport -- we had stopped there for, mostly, one person in our group to shop.  The river had flooded with the first rains of the season, so everything is fairly well mud-soaked.  This woman is crossing over to collect her husband (?), and luckily not the nearby zebu :-).  I think it will look much better large.
