The Weather Channel3,017,166*Upload your photos to this Event on 9/19 or using the #sunsetday hashtag in a public post to celebrate #sunsetday!* Join us for an exciting 24-hour event as we send summer into the sunset in global fashion. We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com.

Scott Jarvie429,111*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00143  
Kelli Seeger Kim1,297,416It's @112471890387110967375 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But @117681034834791918293 and I couldn't wait any longer!) Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.   What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.   Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.   We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-) So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0057

"Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use." -Charles M. Schulz

While my blog is still going strong with a new photo and post everyday, overall the time I’ve spent on the internet has slowed down. And with that, my time spent on social media is down. As a result I’ve had a few friends ask me what I’ve been up to, where I’ve been and why I haven’t been as active on social media as I used to be (with the exception of Instagram, he he). And basically, this is usually my answer: I’ve been outdoors on my road bike. That’s right, I’ve been on the road riding the streets on my trusty Fuji Bikes road bike. This year I’ve found myself in a very fortunate situation to not have to drive my car often as well as not having to spend much time in front of an office computer, so I’ve been spending a lot of time going in every which way on my bike. AndI’ve been enjoying ... more »

"The only way to have a friend is to be one." -Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Whenever I visit Japan, there are certain places that I always visit. Certain dishes and snacks that I always have. And certain friends that I always make time to meet up with. +Takahiro Yamamoto is certainly one of those friends. I've known Takahiro for quite some time now as he was one of the first photographers that I met when Google+ first launched. I was interested in seeing photos of Japan and he was posting such incredible work and very open to answering any questions that I had about the images he posted and the locations where he shot the scene. Over the years I'm proud to be able to call Takahiro a good friend of mine. Not to mention that he's been a big part in helping me hone my photographic skill. Whether it's by sharing technique or getting me out to locations where the scene is usuallyn... more »

If I had to pick just one particular time of the day to photograph anything, it would have to be the blue hour. It's a great time of day or night, especially when you're looking for droids on the sands of Tatooine. He he.

After a day and night of hanging out in the Easter Sierra Nevada with my pal +Scott Sugawara, we decided to make a stop over at Red Rock Canyon State Park here in California. What we found was nothing short of extraordinary!

"Every moment of light and dark is a miracle." -Walt Whitman

Every now and then I talk about specific locations around the Los Angeles County area. Locations that I consider to be my “go to” spots in the event of a great sunset. Spots that don’t take long to get to and that I’m familiar with which makes it easier to find myself a quick composition in case I don’t have much time to get out too far for a surprise epic sunset. The Colorado Street Bridge is one of those locations for me. So one day, while I was out with my good friend for a late lunch/early dinner, I was glad we were near one of my “go to” spots. Earlier in the day while we were hanging out, nothing seemed of interest to shoot. The clouds had blown away leaving a mostly blue sky, and any clouds that did remain were small and not enough to make the sky pop. But when leaving the restaurant I looked up andnoticed how t... more »

Earlier in the day while we were hanging out, nothing seemed of interest to shoot. The clouds had blown away leaving a mostly blue sky, and any clouds that did remain were small and not enough to make the sky pop. But when leaving the restaurant I looked up and noticed how the sky started to turn pink. I thought it was beautiful, but nothing I would be in a rush to shoot. As soon as we got into the car and started heading West back home, the sky simply lit on fire. The clouds had filled the sky and as sunset started, the sky turned into one of the more beautiful sunsets I had seen in recent months. So being that we were near the bridge, we parked nearby and walked out onto the bridge. At this point, I had my Sony A7R with me but I only had my FE 55mm f/1.8 prime lens with me. I usually travel light when I’m going out locally for a meal, but still, I almost always have a camera with me. Luckily, as wide as the bridge is, the focal length I had with me worked just fine.

I would type "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" but the car in this photograph is a Ford, not a Mazda. So I'm going to quote the legendary duo of Maverick and Goose and say, "I feel the need, the need for speed!"

I’ve been having a lot of fun trying to photograph my nieces and nephews this past Summer. With the kids being out of school there’s just more opportunity to see them running around and being kids. It’s been especially fun to watch my niece Zoey this Summer. That being said, here's another image of her that I really enjoyed.

Spending a couple of hours in traffic to get to an amusement park was totally worth it because I was able to see just how close my niece and nephews were with each other. They're as tight a set of siblings as I've seen and I was glad to get some shots of them having fun.

If you'd like to see more photos and a short video of one of the rides, click through to my blog post.

No matter how fast the Universe may spin, my world will remain still as long as she's by my side.

One fun night out in Fossil Falls in the Sierra Nevada I was putting a couple of things to the test. First, I was finally using the Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 lens through some pitch black star shooting. And second, my LED light, which is normally used during video recording, but I’ve been playing with it for some light painting. I’ve had it for a while but haven’t really needed it because of the help of a bright moon. Throughout the night, both of these tools had been working extremely well. I was getting great stars in the sky with nice, even light on my foreground subjects. But I had yet to try any star trails. It had also been quite a few months since I even shot a group of images for star trails so for my last setup, I decided to go for it.

It had also been quite a few months since I even shot a group of images for star trails so for my last setup, I decided to go for it. I only setup my camera to shoot for about 20 to 30 minutes (which gave me 32 images) but I figured I wouldn’t need too much for the amount of trails I was going for. With my camera shooting frame after frame, I decided to walk around these rocks and light paint it from all sides. These were actually much larger and widespread than they appear in this shot, so I light painted over several frames in the front and either side of the frame. When my shoot was finished I took a look at several of the frames on the camera LCD and I initially thought that even if I didn’t get a decent group for star trails, that there were some frames that could stand out on its own. And when I finally went through these images and blended them together, I was quite pleased to get this result. And after some color corrections this is the final image I ended up with.

Fall colors are among the most vibrant natural colors that I've come to enjoy. And Japan is by far my favorite place to view them if I can time my visits there correctly. But even if I don't, it's nice to have great friends that can help find me some color.

Saying goodbye is never easy. But knowing that I'll see her again helps keep the smile on my face.

One of the hidden gems of Southern California, at least in my opinion, is this little spot nestled within the Santa Monica Mountains over in Malibu. The view is quite outstanding and it looks like a scene that one wouldn’t think could be found in Southern California. With the low clouds starting to drift and and overtake the landscape like ocean waves, this might be one of the most amazing places to view the sunset anywhere in the world. I’ve taken photos of this area before, and whenever I’m there I come away with so many photographs of the scene because with the fading sun and the clouds coming in, the scene is constantly changing as time passes.

For this shot I decided to photograph it in a way so that the sun was barely visible. The sunset was amazing as usual and I decided to wait until the sun was at its lowest point, barely giving me a peek at the golden light just before finally fading away for the evening. With the sun in this position, the sky was lit up quite beautifully and evenly, giving a great contrast to the cool landscape below before the clouds had completely overtaken the area. I still have yet to get up there for a prolonged amount of time for some potential star shooting, but knowing that this location is there and waiting for me is comforting and I certainly can’t wait to get back up there for another relaxing day and night among the mountains.

Watching my little niece discover the world around her makes me glad to have a camera with me whenever I visit her. 

It also goes to show that high megapixels counts aren't just for the epic landscapes, but they also work well for the smaller and more precious moments in life. ;-)

I think it’s safe to say that wherever I travel to, near or far, and everything I see and whatever scenery I encounter on those travels is something that I genuinely enjoy.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this, but among my travels to foreign countries, it's the slice of life that I absolutely enjoy. Much like this simple scene in Indonesia.

"The only way to have a friend is to be one." -Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Whenever I visit Japan, there are certain places that I always visit. Certain dishes and snacks that I always have.

I've known Takahiro for quite some time now as he was one of the first photographers that I met when Google+ first launched.

Whether it's by sharing technique or getting me out to locations where the scene is usually nothing short of spectacular. Such as locations like this in Fujikawaguchiko in Yamanashi where he was able to find us some vivid Fall colors.

This one goes out to my good friend as I wish him a Happy Birthday! I hope you've had a great day my friend. And lots of cake! 友人へお誕生日おめでとう.___

The location where the Korean Bell of Friendship in San Pedro, CA is great. Why? Well, the Bell itself is already quite beautiful. True art. But with the placement being high above the water with nothing but the sea and distant islands behind it, it makes for an incredibly beautiful scene during conditions like you see in this shot.

Though I'm not on social media as often these days, my blog still goes strong with a new post each day. I try to post links to the latest posts but I'm not so consistent with it. So, for anyone interested in keeping up with my blog, I've started a newsletter. Check it out and if you see what you like, then give it a subscribe by clicking the button on the newsletter or by going directly to the sign up page here: http://www.themarkeworld.com/aboutme/subscribe-to-the-markes-newsletter/

I'll probably send them out once a month. Perhaps twice if I feel so inclined. But in any event, it's up and ready for your inbox if you want it there. He he.

I have yet to come across an alleyway in Tokyo that wasn't interesting in some way or form. Maybe it's just me, but there just seems to be so much character within these alleyways, whether it's packed with people or almost completely empty.

One of the better sunsets I’ve seen was this one on Venice Beach. It was cloudless, as you can see, but the soft colors that faded into the darker skies just really popped for me.

"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams." -Jeremy Irons

Something that I often think about are the sunsets that I’ve been lucky enough to witness over Mono Lake in Mono County, CA. It’s by far one of my favorite locations to visit of anywhere in the world and each time I’m there I’ve witnessed some of the most amazing scenes and sunsets that I’ve ever seen. Whether the sky is clear or full of rain clouds, it doesn’t seem to matter at Mono Lake. The golden hour is something special already, but when the sun is just on the verge of touching the distant mountainous horizon, the colors in the area simply come alive and really pop. From the sand on the ground to the tufa on the shore to the sky, it’s a true masterpiece that Mother Nature has provided and always provides for whenever I’mout there.

"Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use." -Charles M. Schulz

While my blog is still going strong with a new photo and post everyday, overall the time I’ve spent on the internet has slowed down. And with that, my time spent on social media is down. As a result I’ve had a few friends ask me what I’ve been up to, where I’ve been and why I haven’t been as active on social media as I used to be (with the exception of Instagram, he he). And basically, this is usually my answer: I’ve been outdoors on my road bike. That’s right, I’ve been on the road riding the streets on my trusty Fuji Bikes road bike. This year I’ve found myself in a very fortunate situation to not have to drive my car often as well as not having to spend much time in front of an office computer, so I’ve been spending a lot of time going in every which way on my bike. AndI’ve been enjoying ... more »

This year I’ve found myself in a very fortunate situation to not have to drive my car often as well as not having to spend much time in front of an office computer, so I’ve been spending a lot of time going in every which way on my bike. And I’ve been enjoying being out on the road so much that I haven’t had much desire to burn my time with my face buried in a smart device or my computer. I’d rather feel the cool wind on my face as I cruise around town. Whether it’s for physical training, riding to a spot for a mini shoot, or just heading over to a friends house, I just enjoy grabbing my bike and riding to wherever I feel like going.  

Of course I still try to pop in every now and then to see what folks are up to, but Mr. Schulz had the right idea, and being constantly connected tends to feel like I'm pedaling uphill with just a gear or two. But not being in front of a device as often as before feels like I'm properly using every gear I have available to me making that uphill climb all the more easier.
