Gailen Mapes62,493Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  S - 11 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 Mapes2014-04-11 11:01:421997411CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813411CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714431110CC G+

Gailen Mapes40,341 Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R-S - 5 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting JAugust 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 circle2013-08-19 11:01:4827713512CC G+

Iraq - Jaafari Personal Status Law

This is truly abhorrent, effectively this legalises rape, pedeophillia, imprisonment of girls & women by their husbands, slavery and sets women's rights back millenia. 

Included in this law:

- No minimum age for marriage;
- A facility to divorce a 9 year old girl;
- Makes it illegal for a girl to resist her "Husband's" advances;
- Makes it illegal for a female to leave the house without her husbands permission;
- Enable a girl's father to accept a marriage proposal on her behalf.
 
Is this what our servicemen & women died for in Iraq ???

Act NOW.

I have been meaning to share this with you  all for a wee while, ImageBrief is a great way to sell images.  

How it works
The world's largest ad agencies, brands and publishers use ImageBrief to find the images they need.
ImageBrief posts them to their website and email you the briefs that fit with your genres.
You submit your images to ImageBrief via their website.
If your work is selected they pay top $.

It's well worth joining and submitting your work.  Good luck I hope you land some briefs.

Tufted Duck Ducklings
Aythya fuligula
I was taken by these cute ducklings scrambling over stones almost as big as they are and how the lead duckling appears to be in conversation with it's sibling.
The adult male is all black except for white flanks and a blue-grey bill. It has an obvious head tuft that gives the species its name. The adult female is brown with paler flanks, and is more easily confused with other diving ducks. In particular, some have white around the bill base which resembles the Scaup species, although the white is never as extensive as in those ducks.

Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) 

This female Sparrowhawk paid me a visit the other day and that gave me a chance to get some great shots of this small raptor.  

They are diurnal hunters and is quite secretive although it is the raptor most likely to be seen in towns and villages. She was drawn to our village for a wee House Sparrow snackette at the numerous bird feeders and table throughout the village.  A truly magnificent sight that provided me with a very enjoyable afternoon watching and shooting her.

The female is up to 25% larger than the male, the largest difference in any bird, and is thought to be because smaller males are more agile, so better hunters of birds, which they eat almost exclusively. 

The Sparrowhawk has broad, rounded wings and a longish banded tail for manoeuvrability. The smaller male is blue-grey to slate above with reddishbar... more »

Aurora Borealis
We had an amazing display on the 27/28 February, unfortunately I missed the best of the show and I made just about every rookie mistake in the book.  Not having the quick release plate attached to my camera meant I left it at home so I had to use a fence post rather than a tripod.  In addition to which I didn't take a torch which I usually use to aid with focusing so the shots I got were not of a standard I could be happy with.  However rather than waste the time and the images I figured that I could try out this motion feature on G+.  Here is the result of a ten shot sequence and I think the result is quite good, what do you think?

"We are not genetically programmed in Scotland to make political decisions" Johann Lamont, That being the case why is she in politics?

2014-02-26 03:54:37 (4 comments, 3 reshares, 8 +1s)

I normally leave my political posts for Facebook but this was such an incredible event and I wondered what other people from the four corners of G+ thought.

During a televised debate between Nicola Sturgeon (Deputy First Minister of Scotland & Deputy Leader of the Scottish National Party) and Johann Lamont (Leader of the Opposition & Leader of the Scottish Labour Party) on Scottish Independence.  Nicola arguing for Scotland becoming an Independent country and Johann arguing to stay within the UK.

Johann Lamont said

"We are not genetically programme in Scotland to make political decisions."

Honestly that is a direct quote.  

If Johann Lamont believes that Scots aren't genetically programmed to make political decisions.  Why is she in politics? Help her out

Alex Salmond - First Minister of Scotland

These images were taken at the First Minister's address to Business Leaders in Aberdeen, where he rebuked the comments made by José Manuel Durão Barroso (President of the Commission of the European Union) and George Osborne (UK Chancellor of the Exchequer).  Barroso had intervened in the debate on Scottish Independence with a flippant, unchallenged, through away comment in an interview on British Television.  He suggested that it would be difficult, nearly impossible for an Independent Scotland to join the EU.  In a strange peace of politicking Barroso appears to be ignorant of the facts regarding Scotland's status as a country within a Union (the UK) which itself is in a Union (the EU), but even more bizarrely he did not understand the implications of the EU's own treaties.  Scotland as part of the UK is already a member of theEU and... more »

Lindisfarne Castle
Taken during our Christmas break in Northumberland.  Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island which is  accessible from the mainland at low tide by means of a causeway.  The castle was built in 1550, around the time that nearby Lindisfarne Priory went out of use, and stones from the priory were used as building material. It is very small by the usual standards, and was more of a fort. The castle sits on the highest point of the island, a whinstone hill called Beblowe.  

In 1901, it became the property of Edward Hudson, a publishing magnate and the owner of Country Life magazine. He had it refurbished in the Arts and Crafts style by Sir Edwin Lutyens. It is said that Hudson and the architect came across the building while touring Northumberland and climbed over the wall to explore inside.

The walled garden, which had originally been the garrison'sveg... more »

Nature in the Raw
The winter storms in the UK this year have been well documented.  What has not been documented however is the effect these storms have had on our wildlife.  Here a Great Black-Backed Gull (Larus marinus) and two Carrion Crows (Corvus corone) are feeding on the carcase of a Grey Seal pup, which was probably washed off the rocks from the nearby Farne Islands Seal Colony, before being deposited on the shores of Lindisfarne.  Carrion Crows are scavengers of carrion not raptors, although the Great Black-Backed Gull could kill a Grey Seal pup, but they tend to be more opportunistic than predatory.

Warkworth Castle is a ruined medieval castle in the county of Northumberland. The village and castle occupy a loop of the River Coquet, less than a mile from the north-east coast. When the castle was founded is uncertain: traditionally its construction has been attributed to Prince Henry of Scotland in the mid-12th century.

Royal Hunting Lodge
On Royal Deeside it's not difficult to find places that are frequented by the Royal family, this hunting lodge and estate buildings will be one of many used on Balmoral estate.  Although it was the autumnal colour that drew my to take this shot from the other side of Glen Muick.  *Allt-na-Giubhsaich*, is available as a holiday let, sleeping 12, from Balmoral estates between April  and November, except when the Royals are in residence.  Built by Queen Victoria as a retreat the lodge enjoys stunning views towards Loch Muick.

It's been too long since I posted an image so I'm going to post a number of images over the next week.  I have been shooting but some commissions have meant that I have not managed to edit many of these shoots.  
This shot was taken in October in Glen Tanar, which is an offshoot of Royal Deeside. A quiet little glen with many nice walks and somewhere I have not been for many years, sadly I can no longer enjoy those walks because of my limited mobility.  A very rare HDR image from me, but the light was not conducive to capturing the sky and colours under the trees. I think I have achieved a naturalistic look to the final image.

Malformed Female ♀ Shoveller
Anas clypeata

The Shovelers are surface feeing ducks with a large spatulate shaped bill.  Males have dark green heads, with a white breast and chestnut flank.  Females  are mottled brown. In flight birds show patches of light blue and green on their wings.

This poor bird has a malformation of the upper bill,  which could be caused by injury, genetic defect and disease.  Less than 1% of birds examined in the hand have these deformities, perhaps reflecting their low survival rate.  However this duck appeared to be feeding well and looked very healthy, so I guess it is one of the lucky ones.

The deformity makes it easy to see the comb-like structure called a pecten, along the edge of the beak. This strains the water squirting from the side of the beak and traps any food. The pecten is also used to preen feathersand to h... more »

Ringed Plover
Latin: Charadrius hiaticula
Found on sand and shingle beaches as well as in the dunes and on grassland near the coast, including the machair in the Outer Hebrides.  Some birds however frequent the banks of Lochs, Rivers and even gravel quarries.  While this suggests a static population, this couldn't be further from the truth with some of the birds in Scotland will head south to England for the winter.  Most however  stay in Scotland but move area to over winter; they are joined by birds from Iceland, Greenland and Scandinavia.

Kittiwake and it's Chicks
Latin: Rissa tridactyla
These chicks could live until 2041, if the equal the age of the eldest ringed bird and they will have been on some interesting journeys during that time.   The Kittiwake lay their eggs in May, both parents will incubate the 1-3 eggs, usually 2,  which will hatch after 25-32 days.  The parents will brood them while they are small and the chicks fledge after 33 - 54 days, becoming fully independent virtually straight afterwards.  While some birds remain around the UK waters  many will cross the Atlantic where they will remain as juveniles for a few years before returning to the colony of their birth to breed.  The adults fly out to sea and head south west although some will cross the Atlantic to over winter before returning to the colony again in February.

Danger
Is this adult Shag trying to communicate something to us? 
On my last visit to the Farne Islands with my youngest son he pointed out this Shag. I was taken by the aggressive posture of the Shag behind the Danger sign, which made me think of the Beware of the Dog signs.  The idea struck me that the National Trust; who own the Islands; should create a sign for Inner Farne, to be used during the Arctic Tern's pecking season, "*Beware of the Birds*."

Ard Neakie, Loch Eriboll
These were taken at the end of May 2009, on what sofar is my only visit to the far north of Sutherland, but it certainly will not be my last.  We had an amazing  4 days and would strongly recommend this area to all photographers as a must visit location.  Sadly you are no longer able to capture your own interpretation on this building as the north winds have taken their toll (I think) and despite the ventilation it is no long standing.

Loch Eriboll's most intriguing and attractive feature is Ard Neakie. This is a mound of land prevented from becoming an island by a tombolo of sand and shingle linking it to the east shore of the loch.

Ard Neakie was used as the terminus of the Heilam Ferry, which crossed the loch to the now gone Heilam Inn on the west bank of the loch at Portnancon. The ferry ceased operating in the 1890s when the road aroundth... more »

Small Tortoiseshell on an Aster

Small Tortoiseshell butterfly
Latin:  Aglais urticae
Is a common butterfly found throughout temperate Europe, and East to Siberia, China, Mongolia and Japan.  However, in recent times it is in a very rapid decline in Western Europe. This decline cannot be explained by a decline of its host plant which is the ever flourishing nettle.  It's possible the decline is caused by the climate from 1976 to 1995, the butterfly was more success in summers that were cool and wet at the beginning of summer than when it is was hot and dry. This butterfly may then be sensitive to global warming, but nobody really knows.

Congratulations!!!

To my sweet friend +Rodney Pike for passing 2,000,000 Circlers tonight!!!  

Rodney is a caring, generous, talented, interesting, funny, unassuming, and hard-working guy, and he so deserves the attention and success he is enjoying here on G+ and in life.  

That list of adjectives was getting kind of long, and potentially sappy (but he really IS all that), so I saved the fact that he is a wonderful father and role-model, and a loving son to his mother who turned 85 today for this next line :D

Congratulations again, Rodney XOXOXOXO :)

Bird N°52 - Avocet
Latin:- Recurvirostra avosetta

I wanted to put this project to bed with a great bird and it had been a long time since the 52 week part had fallen apart (thanks to my health) so when I photographed a bird that had been extinct in the UK I figured that was the one.

The Avocet is the symbol of the RSPB and a stunning bird, I photographed this one at Cresswell Pools in Northumberland, England.

The Avocet was declared extinct as a breeding bird in the UK in 1842 but began to recover in 1947, colonising areas of wetland on the South and East coasts of England.  Until their arrival at Wearside Wetland Trust at Washington in 2006, the nearest breeding pairs were in Teesside and Yorkshire, with fewer than 900 pairs in the UK.  In May 2011, two chicks hatched at Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s Cresswell Pond reserve, making it theUK’s... more »

Atlantic Puffin  
Latin - Fratercula arctica
The Atlantic Puffin have struggled for the last few years in the North Sea due to poor weather and low stocks of sandeels.  Earlier this year there were approximately 3,000 birds found dead on the coast between the Firth of Forth and the Humber estuary.  Despite all this bad news the survey of breeding numbers on the Farne Islands are showing signs of recovery however they are still down on the high of just over 55,000 nesting pairs in 2003, following 40+ years of steady increase.  This year's census has shown there to be 39,962 nesting pairs on the Farne Islands.  Hopefully this is the beginning of an overall recovery making sights like this much more common.

Guillemot Chicks Explore Their Ledge
The Guillemot lays its egg straight onto the bare rock ledges, without making a nest of any sort, which makes them unique in the bird world.

Scientists have been carrying out research into the eggs and have discovered that Guillemot eggs have special structures on their shells that make them self-cleaning.  Analysis has revealed tiny cone-shaped structures on the eggs' shells were responsible for the formation of water drops into perfect spheres which is typical of hydrophobic surface.  

The Guillemot lay in crowded dense colonies, so they need to have a mechanism for coping with the salt spray coming off the sea and for dealing with the fact that there's a lot of detritus around from other birds.  These self-cleaning egg shells allow the embryos inside to breathe - letting oxygen and carbon dioxide pass through the shellun... more »

Evil Shag
My daughter thinks this bird is the most evil thing she has ever seen and thinks the young are the ugliest bird in existence.  I'm starting to think that she might not like the Shag very much and yet I have always liked them, especially with their breeding plumage.  What do you think?

WE DID IT! - THANK YOU!

I don't even know where to begin!  You've proven once again that this is an amazing community!!!  Thank you all so much for your encouragement and support!

I woke up this morning surprised by the incredible support I recieved over night.  Now with over 1,000 supporters my song will be included on +ONE 's "Ultimate Protest Song" Spotify album!  To be on the same album as U2, Sting, Elvis Costello, Mumford & Sons,Tom Morello and one of my music influences Bruce Springsteen is a dream come true!

It's an absolute honor to be part of +ONE's Campaign to help end extreme poverty.  And it doesn't end here!  We need to continue to come together, raise our voices and help this cause!  Remember, ACTIONS. SPEAK. LOUDER.

Thank you G+ Family!

Here we go +HEATHER FAY!

British Terns
Arctic Tern           Latin: Sterna paradisaea 
The most aggressive  and furthest travelled of all the Terns, a round trip of about 44,300 miles.   They arrive back from their Antarctic winter break in May/June. Their migration pattern means that they live in perpetual summer and because they travel so far South and North they see more hours sun than any other animal on the planet.  The maximum recorded life span for the species is 34 years, although the average lifespan is about 20 years.  A study in the Farne Islands estimated an annual survival rate of 82%.

Common Tern     Latin: Sterna hirundo
 Common Tern are also strongly migratory, wintering south of their temperate and subarctic Northern Hemisphere breeding ranges.
 Its average flight speed during the nocturnal migration flight is 27–33 mph at a heightof 3,200–9,700 ft... more »

Here are some shots I took earlier in the month, a little foray into street photography, maybe just a little influence from +Boris Gorelik,  whilst waiting for a train at Aberdeen station.  I took most of these "Shooting from the hip" and I must say it filled in an hour very nicely, furthermore I really enjoyed it.  In addition I edited these using a trial version of Lightroom 5 and I'm very impressed.

*The Crohn's Colitis Effect Blog Chosen As 2013 BEST Crohn's Disease Blog by +Healthline!!

It is a HUGE honor to have my blog ( http://cceffect.org ) chosen as one of +Healthline's Best Crohn's Disease Blogs of 2013!!! 

When I started +The Crohns Colitis Effect page on +Google+ and website a few years back, I imagined that it would be followed by a few of my close friends and those that might know me as a place for me to rant. Never in my wildest dreams did I think of expect that it would grow and become what it is today! 

I'm extremely humbled by this! Together I believe that we can make a difference for my son and the 5 million people worldwide that suffer with #IBD   #Crohns  and #Colitis !

Poppy in Wheat Field
Summer is a great time of year, the poppies springing up in the crops, especially now that many farmers are growing in a more environmentally way. It is great to see these "weeds" reestablishing themselves in our countryside.
