Eric Raeber1,174,556I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0014

Gailen Mapes69,381Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L - 18 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-18 13:11:5569000

Into the Mountains

We found a beautiful hike Thursday in Rocky Mountain National Park, visiting a series of lakes as we climbed higher and higher towards a dramatic glacial valley in the high mountains.  Unfortunately the wind was also coming howling down from that valley, and it was about 30F (-1C) to start with; a few inches of snow had fallen overnight.  In addition to a few of mine, you can see more current images of RMNP and surrounding landscapes from +Linda Villers, +Anne Dirkse and +Tony's Takes Photography.

Reward

I'm not much of an early bird, but today we woke before 5am to head to Brainard Lake for sunrise -- and this is what we found!  Snow on the ground and trees, and fire in the sky...  This is a single exposure, barely edited.

Sneak Attack

Don't worry, nobody is attacking anyone, but this image just makes me laugh as if the one guy is just about to grab his friend, and I've caught him in the act :-).  These are the "dancing" Verreaux's Sifakas (Propithecus verreauxi), photographed in the Berenty Reserve.  Like most lemurs and Malagasy wildlife, they are considered Endangered due to habitat loss.

The Hive City

They  hide in plain sight among us.  Sometimes, with a little perspective, a new viewpoint, the extensive signs of alien activity on our little planet become more evident (in Las Vegas, it may not even take that much -- one drink may suffice).  I was able to spot this amazing alien hive city from the top of Montreal's Olympic Park Tower.

The Delegation

Sorry my report is late this week, but I had a rare opportunity to meet on behalf of #alienabductionfriday  with a delegation of species from all over the galaxy, to discuss several sections of the Fornax Convention on the Treatment of Marginally Sentient Species.  While I can't claim to have made any enormous process, we'll just say a frank exchange of views occurred.  Good news: after a fresh review, the status of Earth's cetaceans and apes was upgraded a full level, while Homo sapiens was downgraded only slightly!

Into the Mountains

We found a beautiful hike Thursday in Rocky Mountain National Park, visiting a series of lakes as we climbed higher and higher towards a dramatic glacial valley in the high mountains.  Unfortunately the wind was also coming howling down from that valley, and it was about 30F (-1C) to start with; a few inches of snow had fallen overnight.  In addition to a few of mine, you can see more current images of RMNP and surrounding landscapes from +Linda Villers, +Anne Dirkse and +Tony's Takes Photography.

Sunset at Peggy's Cove

One minute of sunset light was all we got at the Peggy's Cove lighthouse.  +Linda Villers and I had been hoping, but so many of our Nova Scotia sunsets had been closed out by clouds.  After shooting the sunset directly, I decided to put the ND filter on the lens just in case, and suddenly we had a minute of this glow -- I got two frames, and then it was gone.  Still the best sunset we saw on our trip, and this was the same evening the clouds cleared and gave us the Milky Way over the lighthouse as well (my Milky Way photo at https://plus.google.com/104294083885937159989/posts/iN8gGjK7CHF and Linda's at https://plus.google.com/106225423487569249789/posts/2mMq5sPKHAY ).
