#MetallicMonday1,139I meant to do this for a while, but finally thought about doing it enough in advance this week ;) So anyway to get to the point. I think it is long overdue that the page gets a decent cover photo. While I can try to take one myself I thought it'd be a lot more fun if we make it an event and then decide which to use. So anyway if you have a photo, which you think would fit, and don't mind me using as a cover of course, then just put a link in the comments here - or add it to the event .. although I think if you "normally" share with the page and #MetallicMonday  and put a link to the post in the comments here it probably makes more sense.#MetallicMonday needs a cover photo2013-05-26 12:00:0010

Gailen Mapes70,942Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera C - 3 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes  .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-09 11:31:2984001

Did you miss meeeee
Brown fur seal in Cape Town

Sorry for the long silences, real life is so full of new things to discover that I'm actually quite happy not to spend too much time on social networks.

Still, I miss the friends of +Underwater Thursday , and I hope the UW community will grow strong also here on G+.

Logbook L+1

Wow, wow, wow! It’s 22:00 here on the International Space Station (we’re on GMT time), I’m approaching the end of my first day in space and I cannot even begin to describe the experience of the past 30 hours or so. Really, I don’t know.

Saying good bye to my family, suiting up for launch, getting to the launch pad, riding up the elevator, strapping in... and then the launch, this wild ride to orbit and then an abrupt engine cutoff and feeling my body wanting to float off my seat. And the first glimpses of Earth: my first sunrise, the stars. My first sight of the ISS as we approached (more to that later) and then floating through the hatch into the warm embraces of Sasha, Elena and Butch.

Saying good bye to my family, suiting up for launch, getting to the launch pad, riding up the elevator, strapping in... and then the launch, this wild ride to orbit and then an abrupt engine cutoff and feeling my body wanting to float off my seat. And the first glimpses of Earth: my first sunrise, the stars. My first sight of the ISS as we approached (more to that later) and then floating through the hatch into the warm embraces of Sasha, Elena and Butch.

The first clumsy attempts at “flying” , having our first meal, Butch giving us the toilet brief, Terry calling me to watch a sunrise from the Cupola.. and so many more impressions. It will take my brain days to process it all and I promise I will share as much as I can!

For now, I will tell you of one moment, which was so fortunate and unexpected. You know, when you fly to the Space Station in the Soyuz, unless you are the Commander sitting in the center seat, you can only see your destination from far away in the black and white camera view (the same image that is transmitted to Mission Control and usually shown during media coverage of docking). As a left-or right seater, you only have a side view and there’s no way to see the Station until you’re really close and parts of it start coming in your field of you. Before the flight, previous Soyuz fliers had reminded me to start looking for the Space Station in the side window in the last part of the approach and so I did: but I wasn’t prepared in the least for what I saw when we were at about 30-40 meters.

I had released my shoulder straps quite a bit at that point, so I was floating over my seat. As I turned to look outside, at first I looked back and saw one of our Soyuz solar panels, which I had seen before of course. Then my eyes caught something in the peripheral view. And as I slowly turned my gaze and when I realized what I was seeing, I was overcome by pure amazement and joy:  the Space Station was there, but not just any view. The huge solar panels were flooded in a blaze of orange light, vivid, warm almost alien. I couldn’t help exclaiming something aloud, which you can probably hear in the recordings of our docking, since at that point we were “hot mic”  with Mission Control. Anton reminded me of that and so I tried to contain my amazement and return to the docking monitoring. When I peaked again later, the orange glow was gone. 

Butch told me later that he had heard my amazement on com when  "the Station had turned orange.”  I didn’t know, but apparently there’s only a few seconds during day-night transition that the Station is lit by that amazing orange glow. And it happened to be exactly when I peaked outside!  I feel very fortunate that I had such a unique first glimpse of our human outpost in space: such a great welcome!

Which was only trumped, by the way, by the amazing welcome our veteran crewmates Sasha, Elena and Butch prepared for us!

Immediately after our arrival they took us to the Service Module to say hello to our friends and relatives in Baikonur and as soon as we have a few minutes break in the cm coverage they started to “ set the table”  with all the food they had already warmed for us!

Scale matters

I studied some pictures taken at Huang Shan before going but I hadn't realised the scale and size of all the peaks and valleys.

Let me try to give some sense of scale: can you see the little pavilion on the right? And the huge cloud of mist rising on the left?

I've spent the last couple of days in the company of some amazing photographers in Anilao.

I have so much to learn...

Thanks to +Anilao Photo Hotel for the great time and support!

Here are a couple of Longnose hawkfish (Oxycirrhites typus). Not the rarest of species but I like the composition :)

Did you say shark?
A gallery of shark shots:
www.alecere.com/Underwater/Shark

It's always sad to realize how the media keep "jumping the shark" every year, on occasion of the shark week.

Just to clarify:
Are shark predators?
Yes. They are apex predators, so they don't really have many animals going after them. Apart from humans, of course.

Are they mysterious?
They live in the oceans, an environment we don't really know that much about. We don't know much about a lot of very small critters in the sea either...

Are they dangerous?
As with every wild animal, interactions with humans can be unpredictable. Statistically, it's more likely to be bitten by your dog than by a shark anyway... (and I love my dog!) 

Are they useful?
Yes! a lot! they are part of the marine ecosystem. They... more »

Are they useful?
Yes! a lot! they are part of the marine ecosystem. They evolved with it. As every other species, when we mess up with their populations we are affecting the whole ecosystem. What's particularly important with sharks is that they are apex predators: a small numb rod them affects a large area and a large number of individuals of other species.

I hope my friends at +Underwate +Underwater Thursday reciate this little rant.

Explore new compositions

It was the end of a quiet and unusually warm check dive in the waters of Nusa Lembogan (Bali, Indonesia).

The crystalline clarity of the water and the patterns of the sand were suggesting me all kinds of compositions but I needed a subject. Then I found this soft coral, I gently landed on the bottom and found the light I wanted.

Ah, it felt so good to dive again this past weekend...

It was the end of a quiet and unusually warm check dive in the waters of Nusa Lembogan (Bali, Indonesia).

The crystalline clarity of the water and the patterns of the sand were suggesting me all kinds of compositions but I needed a subject. Then I found this soft coral, I gently landed on the bottom and found the light I wanted.

Ah, it felt so good to dive again this past weekend...

Nothing new, only work

I am somehow impressed by how many people reached out to me in the last months asking me if everything was ok, and why I am not as active as I used to be.

I am sorry if I have somehow disappointed someone, and possibly even a bit flattered :)

In any case, the reason is simple: my life away from social medias is very busy. I still take a lot of pictures but I do not have the time (and strength sometime) to edit and share them in a timely manner.

I want to offer here a glimpse of what we do in the lab where I work at +Centre for Quantum Technologies:
here is a detail of a magneto-optical trap (http://bit.ly/1nHTonT) that we use to trap rubidium atoms. Can you see the blue fluorescence, somewhere in between the metallic holder in the glass cell?
The light that's saturating the sensor of my camera is coming from a laser beam... more »

The light that's saturating the sensor of my camera is coming from a laser beam scattered by some millions of rubidium atoms trapped in a very small volume.

What do we do with those atoms? Well, in this particular case, we use and additional laser beam to trap a single one of them (do you see the back part of a strong focusing lens on the right side of the holder?) and then use this well localised single atom to learn how we can improve the interaction with single photons.

You can observe more details in the high resolution copy of this photo at my website: http://bit.ly/1rSuwsV

Soft colours over the Mole Antonelliana

Thanks to +mamo delpero I had the chance to look at Turin from a vantage point.

Editing this view (after two months...) I realise the real power of virtual connection: they can become personal one.

BTW, check +mamo delpero and get ready to be amazed!

The week is almost at the end, I can almost see the weekend. No diving planned but it will be great to enjoy a weekend in Italy :)

This turtle comes instead from Sipadan, Malaysia. Friendly, eh?

I finally had a bit of time to sit down and edit!

First (small) batch is out, and I especially like the collection of sunsets I got in Bali.
It was a diving trip and I wasn't really ready for shooting landscapes... And yes, Lightroom lens profile correction can straighten even a fisheye lens!

Please, feel free to check out this new album, comment, ask question and share!

PS: happy Easter :)

UW traffic jam

It was great to see so much life in the sea.
Often I was too taken to observing all that was going on that I hardly remember to press the shutter button...

What happens when a school of jackfishes meets a whitetip shark?
Well... nothing  Apart from a cool composition, no?

I haven't planned (yet) to go to iceland, but if you're looking for a good reason to go there, look at +Joe Azure 's photos and you'll have one!

Waterfall of the Goði

Welcome to Goðafoss...  This is one amazing waterfall if I do say.  Because it was only 15-20 minutes from our hotel, we dropped in to shoot it a couple of times.  This is the very first frame I shot from our second visit.  Since I had been there before, I knew where I wanted to get a shot with colorful sky (and no mist on my lens), so when we arrived I hopped down here, took the shot, and went ont to find some other compositions.  I think I am getting better at being able to get the settings and focus dialed right away so I don't miss the light.

+Brian Rueb from +Aperture Academy really deserves a ton of praise for leading a spectacular photo tour for us.  We hit up many of the iconic locations for the trophy hunters, but in addition, he showed us other great places to photograph and explore.  His knowledge and experience photographing the country really showed!

~joe
Tech:  Yes - this is a single exposure

Add olive oil. lot of olive oil.
Get all the pack of pasta almost empty, without any concern for the kind of pasta. Boil all of it in salted water matching every kind with its cooking time.

With some luck, you will have a new taste experience, rivalling some of the greatest chefs in the world, and a cleaner fridge.

End of the year, time to look back for a moment, see what has been done and what remains to be done.

Here as some photos that marked the year: moving to a Asia, the Sardine Run in South Africa, The great time spent in North America...
I cannot wait for 2014 to start with its load of adventures and experiences!

P.S. If you like any of the shots, you can also buy prints and digital copies from my website: www.alecere.com :)
