Gailen Mapes65,674Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-07-05 02:02:08155305CC G+

El Capitan Reflection

It was beautiful in Yosemite Valley yesterday morning. About six inches of snow fell overnight, then the storm cleared just before daybreak. Here's one of my images from the morning, a somewhat abstract view of El Capitan, with early-morning sun on its eastern face and its reflection the Merced River.

Redbud and Reflection

The redbuds are starting to bloom in the Merced River Canyon west of Yosemite. They're not at peak yet, but they're getting there.

I found this redbud along the banks of the Merced River a few years ago. The water provides a nice, clean, undistracting background, so I often look for situations where I can isolate a redbud, or even part of the redbud, against the river. Here the golden reflections (from sunlight hitting a grassy hillside across the river) were an added bonus.

Regeneration After a Fire

Even in this dry year, there are many flowers blooming in the Yosemite high country. Claudia and I found this carpet of lupine and coneflowers near Crane Flat recently, in an area burned by the Big Meadow Fire in 2009.

Should You Stay or Should You Go?

Last Saturday morning, on the last day of my Hidden Yosemite workshop, we photographed fleeting mist in Tuolumne Meadows. At one point a herd of deer appeared through the fog, so we quickly put on long lenses and were able to capture a few frames as they grazed past us.

You can see some more photographs from that morning on my blog, and I also talk about that dilemma that landscape photographers often face: is it better to stay and wait for the light, or move?

Sunset, Tuolumne Meadows

We had a wonderful group and interesting weather during my Hidden Yosemite workshop last week; it was a really fun time! Here's a photograph from our first evening, when we made back to a pond in Tuolumne Meadows for sunset, with beautiful clouds reflected in the water.

Rainbow and Sunbeam over Mono Lake

This might be the most unusual rainbow I've ever seen. Claudia, Kirk Keeler, and I were walking out of the Whoa Nellie Deli after dinner last night when we spotted a rainbow. We drove quickly toward the lake, where we found a short, vivid section of the rainbow over a zigzag shoreline. The rainbow was formed by the sun poking through a small hole in the clouds and hitting a rain squall, which made it look like the rainbow was suspended in space and creating a sunbeam. 

Follow this link to my blog post Moody Weather at Mono Lake and more images from the past few days.

Photo Critique Series: A Spectacular Cloud Formation in the Yosemite High Country

No, this is not my photo! I've just posted another installment of my Photo Critique Series on my blog, where I look at this panorama from the Yosemite high country by David Silva. It's a beautiful photograph overall, but I think some small changes could increase its impact:

Melting Ice on a High-Country Lake, Yosemite

It's a hot day here in the Sierra foothills, which makes me think of escaping to cooler territory in the Yosemite high country. We'll be headed up there on Friday to start scouting for my Hidden Yosemite workshop – can't wait!

This image was made on July 15th, 2011. After a very snowy winter there was still lots of snow above 10,000 feet, and the lakes were mostly frozen. In this dry year all the snow and ice has already melted, but it will still be cool and beautiful up there.

150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant

Within National Parks is room – glorious room – room in which to find ourselves, in which to think and hope, to dream and plan, to rest and resolve.
— Enos A. Mills

Exactly 150 years ago, on June 30th, 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, giving Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove to the state of California to be preserved. This is the first instance of park land being set aside specifically for preservation and public use by action of the U.S. federal government, and set a precedent for the 1872 creation of Yellowstone as the first national park. (Yosemite National Park was created in 1890 to protect the lands surrounding Yosemite Valley, and in 1906 the valley and Mariposa Grove were returned to the federal government and incorporated into the national park.)

Photography played a vital rolein th... more »

Clouds Over Greenstone Lake, Eastern Sierra 

"Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

As beautiful, dappled clouds drifted overhead, I decided to try a slow shutter speed - 15 seconds - to blur the movement of the clouds and add a more ethereal look to this mountain scene.

Sunbeams at the Mouth of Fern Canyon, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, California

"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary."
— Aaron Rose

During my last workshop we were heading out of Fern Canyon and saw these sunbeams slanting across the canyon entrance. There was no fog, but mist coming off the ocean gave the atmosphere enough substance to create the sunbeams. This scene would probably look pretty ordinary most of the time, but it seemed pretty extraordinary at that moment.

When a Scene Composes Itself

After our redwoods workshop, Claudia and I drove north and spent a couple of days along the Oregon coast. On our first evening, while scouting for locations north of Brookings, we stumbled upon this scene. It practically composed itself, with all the elements nicely balanced and arranged: two stands of silhouetted trees on a ridgeline, with an offshore rock placed perfectly in the gap between the trees, and another rock spaced neatly out to the left. There was even a scalloped line of waves in the foreground to lead the eye toward that gap and the distant rock.

My first thought was to wait until the sun set, which would reduce the contrast, make the exposure easier, add some color, and avoid problems with lens flare. But as I stood there, I was drawn to the light at that moment, and decided to try it. Getting this final image involved bracketing,... more »

Chasing the Light and Weather

It should be obvious that weather and light are important aspects of landscape photography. No matter where you are, it pays to keep an eye on the weather, and to learn local weather patterns.

In my latest blog post I talk about following the weather during our time in the redwood country, and how to use forecasts, apps, and your knowledge of local weather patterns to put yourself in the right place at the right time:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/06/15/chasing-light-weather/

I made this photograph on the first day of our workshop, as the sun was breaking through the fog in the redwood forest. There's actually a faint fog rainbow, or "fogbow," in this image; you can see a hint of color just to the right of center.

Waves and Slow Shutter Speeds

During my recent redwoods workshop we spent a lot of time photographing the beautiful, wild, northern California coast. These kind of scenes often lend themselves to using slow shutter speeds to blur the motion of the waves. For this photograph I used a really long exposure - 30 seconds - to blur the water as well as the fog flowing from the mouth of the Klamath River.

You can see more of my recent slow-shutter-speed ocean photos in my latest blog post:

+Claudia Welsh and I have been up in the redwood country, in far northern California, for the past two weeks. We had such a great time during my Mystic Forest workshop. Like last year, we stayed at the Requa Inn, with its great food, relaxing atmosphere, and beautiful views. We had a wonderful group of people, and I already miss the energy of learning and photographing together. And we had great weather, with lots of fog! Here’s one image from our first morning, with the sun breaking through the fog and creating a spectacular triple corona. I’ll post more photographs soon as I get time to process them...

Alders and Sunbeams

This is an early-morning photograph from a couple of days ago. It rained a little, then cleared, so when the sun hit these alders some of the new moisture started evaporating, creating some mist and sunbeams. Beautiful, moss-covered alders are common here around Redwood National Park, but not easy to photograph for some reason, so it was nice to find this little scene.

Rainbow, Crescent Beach

+Claudia Welsh and I are up in the redwood country, scouting for my workshop next week. It's good to be back - it's such a beautiful area.

At sunrise this morning some showers were moving through, so we were taking our time getting going, when I looked out the window of our hotel room in Crescent City and saw a rainbow! So we hurried out to the car and down along Crescent Beach.

Luckily this rainbow lasted a long time. The tide was low, so there were some great reflections in the wet sand.

Déjà Vu in the High Country

Last Thursday, on my trip to the Yosemite high country with +Claudia Welsh, I saw the sun dipping below the clouds to the west, and moved around this pond to catch the clouds reflected in the water, and position the sun behind a tree. And I realized that I'd photographed the sun setting behind the same tree over ten years ago!

This image is quite different than the older one, but this little bit of déjà vu reminded me of how valuable it is to know an area well. In my latest blog post I talk about how the experience gained by photographing one place repeatedly can help you make better images when you travel to more exotic locations. I've also included more photographs from Thursday afternoon, and that older image made from this same spot:

Clouds and Reflections, Tuolumne Meadow, Yosemite

As I mentioned in my last post, +Claudia Welsh and I went searching for interesting weather and clouds in the Yosemite high country yesterday afternoon, and we sure found what we were looking for. I'll post some more colorful sunset scenes later, but I like this black-and-white view looking west from Tuolumne Meadows. At this point a snow squall was moving in from the east, but looking west I could still see the sun poking through the clouds, with that dynamic sky reflected in the foreground pond.

The reverse S-curve in the middle distance might make you think that you're looking at a river, and you'd be partially right.

Tioga Pass Reopens

Some snow showers closed Tioga Pass over the last couple of days, but the road just reopened. +Claudia Welsh and I are going to head up there this afternoon in search of interesting weather and clouds.

We encountered some particularly interesting weather up along that road a few years ago in Tuolumne Meadows, during my Hidden Yosemite workshop. A bank of fog lingered over the meadow, and I made this photo as the mist cleared and the sun broke through.

Appalachian Waterfalls

Waterfalls are abundant in the southern Appalachians. It seems like you can hardly throw a stick without hitting one. And while Yosemite waterfalls are big and dramatic, the Appalachian waterfalls are more complex and intricate, and, in many ways, more interesting to photograph. In my latest blog post I talk about photographing these cascades, including how to choose the right shutter speed, using polarizing filters, and looking for patterns -- along with a variety of examples:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/05/18/appalachian-waterfalls/

This image was captured at Brasstown Veil in South Carolina. While most of the falls in this area are really less-than-vertical cascades, Brasstown Veill pours straight down a 35-foot cliff, generating lots of spray. Spray can create rainbows in the right light, and we were lucky... more »

Along the Blue Ridge Parkway

On our recent trip to the Carolinas +Claudia Welsh and I visited the southern section of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and what a treat that was. We photographed sarvis (or serviceberry) in bloom, a rainbow in front of Looking Glass Rock, sunrise and sunset vistas, and much more. You can read the story and see a bunch of photos on my blog:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/05/11/along-blue-ridge-parkway/

During our first day along the parkway, while scouting for our workshop, it was raining off and on, and at higher elevations the road climbed into the clouds, where we encountered thick fog - perfect for photographing the blooming sarvis trees, like these near Graveyard Fields.

Sunset Over Lake Jocassee

Here's another photograph from our trip to the Carolinas. During our workshop we made the long dirt-road drive to Jumping Off Rock, overlooking Lake Jocassee in South Carolina, and were rewarded with a beautiful sunset as the sun broke underneath a layer of clouds.

This was a very contrasty scene, but I didn't use HDR or any kind of exposure blending. This is just one frame, processed entirely in Lightroom using mostly the Exposure, Highlights, and Shadows sliders, along with the Adjustment Brush to lighten the lake and foreground.

Back From the Southern Appalachians

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind, with back-to-back workshops and two cross-country flights. But +Claudia Welsh and I had a great time during our visit to the mountains of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. We got to see some beautiful country, and experience lots of that famous southern hospitality.

Now I’m back home, catching up on sleep and processing photographs. I made this dogwood image near the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We just caught the tail end of the dogwood bloom, and it was nice to photograph eastern dogwoods in their native habitat.

While the dogwood bloom was almost over, the sarvis were just getting started. I had never heard of these trees until just before our trip, I found them to be highly photogenic. I’ll post more images of sarvis, waterfalls, andmany... more »

Spring in Yosemite

We had great conditions during my Yosemite workshop for The Ansel Adams Gallery this past week. The dogwoods were blooming, there were lots of fresh, green leaves everywhere, and we had some interesting weather. It rained all day Friday, but Saturday morning we found clearing skies and an inch of new snow. This photograph of Tenaya Creek was made Monday afternoon as I was scouting for the workshop; I liked the curving tongue of water with the texture of the maple leaves behind it.

The dogwoods are still in good shape, and should be photogenic for at least another week or so. And the dogwoods at higher elevations (along highways 41 and 120, and in the Tuolumne Grove of giant sequoias) are just getting started, and should last for two to three weeks.

I’m off to North and South Carolina tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to photographing easterndog... more »

Dogwood Have Arrived in Yosemite Valley

The last time I was in Yosemite Valley was just over a week ago, and only a few dogwood blossoms had appeared by then. I returned to the valley yesterday, and found that the dogwoods had fully emerged already. This is one of the earliest blooms I can remember, but that’s not terribly surprising with the warm and dry spring we’ve had.
Although the flowers will last a couple of weeks, they’re most photogenic when new and fresh, so they’re near peak now. The valley is quite beautiful, with lots of fresh, bright-green leaves everywhere, the waterfalls flowing – and of course the dogwoods. The waterfalls will peak early this year, probably by early May, if not sooner, but for the moment it seems like a pretty normal spring. 

Meanwhile, there are still some nice poppy displays in the eastern end of the Merced River Canyon, nearEl Portal,... more »

Should Your Next Camera Be a Sony?

I've been using a Sony A7r for about two months now, and it's an outstanding camera. Since it's a mirrorless camera, I've had to learn to live without an optical viewfinder, but the electronic viewfinder has its advantages, and the image quality is amazing. You can read my full review of the A7r on my blog:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/04/18/sony-a7r/

This photograph of willows along the Merced River in Yosemite was made with the A7r. It's an image with lots of fine detail, and the camera captured all of it beautifully. I've made some huge prints of this file - up to 40x60 inches - and the prints show excellent detail. Big resolution in a small package!

Lunar Eclipse Over the Trona Pinnacles

Not satisfied with how the rock formations in Yosemite lined up with the lunar eclipse on Monday night, I drove down to the Trona Pinnacles, in the Mojave Desert near Ridgecrest, California. +Claudia Welsh and I spent the night there photographing this long sequence of the moon before, after, and during the eclipse as it passed over a group of towers. You can read the full story about how I photographed and assembled this sequence on my blog:

Snow at Last

In this dry winter, snow has been rare in Yosemite Valley, but last Tuesday night the valley got about six inches of new snow. Wednesday the skies cleared, and mist rose around the cliffs – a beautiful morning for photography.

I drove up to the park early and started at Tunnel View, then moved to several other places in the valley, and didn’t stop photographing until the sun had melted most of the snow out of the trees. This is a photograph of one of my favorite oak trees in the valley decked out in snow. You can see a few more images from that morning on my blog:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/04/08/snow/

Photographing the Lunar Eclipse

On the night of April 14th and 15th viewers in North and South America will be able to see a total lunar eclipse. Most people should be able to see the whole eclipse sequence (weather permitting), though viewers in the far northeast will miss the very end of the event.
I’ve photographed several lunar eclipses, and they’re spectacular events to view and photograph. This one is special, however, because it’s the first time I might be able to see the whole eclipse sequence from beginning to end. In California the eclipse will seen almost due south. This is not a great alignment for Yosemite Valley, though it should be possible to see the eclipse over Cathedral Rocks or Sentinel Rock. But California is a diverse state with many other possible locations, so I’ll be thinking about other possible locations between now and the 14th.

Poppies Are Still Going Strong

The poppies in the Merced River Canyon, west of Yosemite, have defied my expectations. Not only did they survive the series of storms over the last two weeks, but the bloom has expanded further up the hillsides to some of the highest ridge tops, and east towards El Portal. The stretch on the north side of the river, about three miles east of Briceburg (and opposite the Slate Creek Bridge), looks particularly good, as does Grandy’s Hill a couple of miles further east.

The poppies near the beginning of the Hite’s Cove Trail have faded, which is not surprising, since they’ve been blooming for a couple of weeks now. That means the most easily-accessible spot for poppies isn’t as spectacular anymore, but there are still poppies there, and further along the trail you’ll find a variety of other wildflowers – not large swaths, but good subjectsfor closeup... more »

El Capitan Reflection

It was beautiful in Yosemite Valley yesterday morning. About six inches of snow fell overnight, then the storm cleared just before daybreak. Here's one of my images from the morning, a somewhat abstract view of El Capitan, with early-morning sun on its eastern face and its reflection the Merced River.

Divided No More

I made this photograph Friday morning in the Merced River Canyon, west of Yosemite. I hoped to find fog, and luckily it lasted a couple of hours, long enough for me to find a number of different compositions, including this one with redbuds set underneath some large valley oak trees.

This image depends on color for much of its impact, but the previous morning I had been photographing in black and white at Tunnel View. This represents a big change in photography. Not long ago photographers were divided into two camps: color photographers, and black and white photographers. But digital photography has blurred the lines, making it easy to work with both palettes, and I think that's a good thing. I've been gratified to see more and more photographers doing great work in both black and white and color.

Half Dome and Rainbow from Tunnel View

It's raining in Yosemite Valley this afternoon, with snow at higher elevations. There's more rain in the forecast for Saturday, and again Monday. Keep it coming - we need all we can get!

I made this photograph from Tunnel View during one of my January Lightroom workshops. Just as some rain showers were starting to clear this rainbow appeared right in from of Half Dome.

Poppies and Canyon Oak, Sierra Foothills

I made this photograph yesterday in the Merced River Canyon, west of Yosemite. It's hard to tell here, but I was actually looking straight down a steep hillside toward the oak, using the curving lines of the little gully to lead the viewer's eye to the tree.

As you can tell from the photo, there are still lots of poppies in this area. I just posted a report about the flowers - and the effect the upcoming storms might have on them - on my blog:

Redbud and Reflection

The redbuds are starting to bloom in the Merced River Canyon west of Yosemite. They're not at peak yet, but they're getting there.

I found this redbud along the banks of the Merced River a few years ago. The water provides a nice, clean, undistracting background, so I often look for situations where I can isolate a redbud, or even part of the redbud, against the river. Here the golden reflections (from sunlight hitting a grassy hillside across the river) were an added bonus.

Hite's Cove Poppies

Yesterday +Claudia Welsh and I walked up the beginning of the Hite's Cove Trail (in the Merced River Canyon west of Yosemite). I’m always looking for patterns, and found this zigzag design on the steep hillside above the trail.

This is one of the few situations where I’ve used straight-on frontlight. I usually prefer soft light (shade or overcast) for colorful subjects like this, but direct frontlight is the next-best thing, since the light is even and nearly shadowless. And since poppies only open when they’re in the sun, frontlight is sometimes the best option.

The poppies and redbuds have both progressed nicely since I last checked on Sunday, and the poppies along the Hite's Cove Trail are near their peak. For a full report, and my thoughts about how the forecast rain next week might affect the flowers, see my latest blogpost:more »

A Good Year for Poppies?

There are signs that we may get a good poppy bloom this year in the Merced River Canyon, along Highway 140 west of Yosemite. I just posted a full report on my blog:

http://www.michaelfrye.com/landscape-photography-blog/2014/03/17/poppies/

This photograph was made in March of 2009, during the best poppy bloom I've ever seen in this area. I liked how the curving lines in the river rapids are echoed in the flowers, so I zoomed in with my 70-200mm lens to isolate and juxtapose those two elements.

Borrowlenses Sale

Borrowlenses.com is having a sale, with 25% off all of their rental equipment – a good time to test that camera or lens you’ve been wanting to try! The sale only lasts until midnight tonight. Here's a link:

I’ve used Borrowlenses many times to test equipment, and found their prices reasonable and service excellent. This panned image of Ross's Geese from the San Joaquin Valley was made recently with a rented Canon 6D. I also just finished testing a Sony A7r, and I’ll have more to say about both of these cameras soon.

Leaping Sandhill Crane

This is another photograph from that foggy morning in the San Joaquin Valley a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure whether this leap was part of the crane's courtship dance, or some other kind of display, but either way I love the pose this bird struck here.

Clouds and Mist From Tunnel View

I posted this image as part of a portfolio on my blog, but thought it deserved to stand on its own here. This is one of the photographs I made on a beautiful, misty morning last Thursday. In this image, the sun was just starting to break through, lighting the clouds and the top of El Capitan, with mist swirling through Yosemite Valley.

I made this photograph with a Sony A7r, rented from +BorrowLenses.com. I’ve been looking forward to testing this camera, since it uses essentially the same sensor as the Nikon D800E, but I can use an adapter to mount my Canon lenses on it. Because it’s a mirrorless camera, the A7r is very different than anything I’ve used before, so it takes some getting used to. But it’s growing on me, and the image quality is fantastic. I’ll post a full review soon.

Yosemite Valley From Near Old Inspiration Point

It’s been fun to finally have some interesting weather to photograph. Last Thursday morning I found some beautiful, misty, black-and-white scenes at Tunnel View.

Morning Light, Ross's Geese

I made this photograph about two weeks ago in the San Joaquin Valley. A group of geese started to take off just after the sun broke through clouds and cast a warm, golden glow on the scene.

I love the overall pattern of birds here, as well as the subtle, circular pattern they form around the bush. A lucky moment when light, subject, and animal behavior all came together.

Delicate Arch Over Half Dome

This is just for fun. After last night's rainstorm I found some nice misty scenes at Tunnel View this morning. I had actually packed up my camera when Half Dome finally emerged, so I stuck around for awhile longer, and at one point this arch-shaped cloud appeared over Half Dome.
