He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors.

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501000
Gailen Mapes75,030Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 8 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-08 11:24:31143000

Dubie Bacino116,401Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (14th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU , connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity! -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

Although this circle is not completed it is the circle of fine photographers who have had one of more photos shared on the all new #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds page.  Please note that this circle will continue to expand and will be re-shared as it grows. Just a note of appreciation to all these fine photographers, thanks for allowing me to share your fantastic work. I will be away for a few days ( until Nov. 24th ) and will not be able to post any additional photos until my return.  Sharing this circle is highly encouraged and appreciated, adding the hash tags to my page is appreciated as well, but please know it is not required to be showcased here. If you are a photographer of birds and have high quality photos you share publicly, please consider adding #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds to your circles, as it will help me find you in the future. Lastly, to all the fine bird loving photographers, may you be blessed with more and greater captures,Respectfully,+William Joers 2014-11-18 13:54:1216714417

Gailen Mapes70,854Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 8 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.2014-11-08 12:13:0614512414

Get on your knees! Or … not.
As nice as the sky was, I decided that the unique features in the scene were the rocks and the shape of the shoreline at low tide. I collapsed the legs of my tripod so it was as short as possible to get closer to the rocks and angled my camera down placing the horizon in the top third of the frame. Pointing the camera down when you use a wide angle lens has a dramatic effect and even distorts the edges of the images a bit, but I’m ok with that.

The Third Joshua Tree
It was taken at the beginning of sunset when all the shades of blue, pink, orange and yellow light up in the sky. I got close to the tree, positioned myself low to the ground, and angled the camera up to the sky so that none of the tree’s branches would touch the trees in the background (or at least that is what I was trying for, I think a few bits actually do touch).

Organ Pipe Cactus at Sunset
Making an image like this is all about waiting for the perfect light. I wanted nice sunset colours and to have the cactus in silhouette, but with just enough light in the foreground to be able to see the other plants.

Tilapia at the Salton Sea, California
Because there is no outflow the salinity of the Salton Sea increases every year and now only one kind of fish can survive- the tilapia. When they die, they wash up on the beach which is covered with dried up tilapia.

By the way this is not a white sand sand beach with lovely seashells – those are super sharp barnacles and bones! No wearing sandals here (I learned the hard way).

Mono Lake, California
Mono Lake, California, made me feel like I was visiting a lake on the moon!

The bright blue topaz coloured lake is 2.5 times as salty as the ocean and is very alkaline. This is a result of salts and minerals washing into the lake from the Sierra Nevada streams, evaporating fresh water, and the fact that the lake has no outlet.

Lion Cubs in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
On a warm sunny African afternoon in Ngorongoro Crater, most of the animals have had their morning feed and are ready for a nice rest in the shade.

Being the kings and queens of all the animals, the lions certainly have no problem lying flat out in the open for a big sleep without a concern in the world.

Top 10 Landscape Photos of 2014
Around this time of year I always take a moment to reflect on how my last year went, whether I did the things I wanted to do, whether I am living the life I want to live, and whether I grew as a photographer.

This is the view out the back window of my summer campsite in British Columbia!

Get on your knees! Or … not.
As nice as the sky was, I decided that the unique features in the scene were the rocks and the shape of the shoreline at low tide. I collapsed the legs of my tripod so it was as short as possible to get closer to the rocks and angled my camera down placing the horizon in the top third of the frame. Pointing the camera down when you use a wide angle lens has a dramatic effect and even distorts the edges of the images a bit, but I’m ok with that.

White Pelicans at the Salton Sea, California
The best thing about RVing is the changing scenery. Every time we move, I get a brand new back yard to look at, a new sunrise to enjoy, and a new place to relax for happy hour.

Lately we’ve been hanging out at one of my favourite boondocking spots in California: the Salton Sea. This is the third year we’ve stopped here and this time we’ve explored more locations along the sea and spent more time observing the birds, particularly the white pelicans.

Baboons in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Driving along the rim on the way to our tented camp, we were welcomed by a troop of baboons!

Once they saw us coming, they quickly ran off into the woods, so I was glad I was ready with my camera to capture this moment between two baboons before they were gone.

Driftwood Art
The massive accumulation of driftwood at Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island, BC, is fascinating. But even better is all the driftwood art made by campers at the nearby campground.

The beachfront campsites all have their own unique art. In one campsite a long time seasonal resident made this gorgeous carving.

More driftwood art images from the campsite are on the blog today:

This Baobab Tree is One Thousand Years Old (give or take)
I come from British Columbia, Canada, so that means it’s pretty hard to impress me with big trees. People come from all over the world to be awestruck by the magnificent old growth forest I grew up with.

But one tree I was impressed by is the incredible Baobab Tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.

It’s not necessarily the size of the tree. There are taller trees, there are wider trees, there are older trees, even though the Baobab can live to be thousands of years old. It’s really the shape and stature of the tree.

It often stands alone, looking like it has been plucked out of the ground and stuck back in upside down with it’s roots in the air. Like the camels of the tree world, it’s cork-like bark is fire resistant and holds thousands of gallons of water which helps it survive the long dryseason. In... more »

Like the camels of the tree world, it’s cork-like bark is fire resistant and holds thousands of gallons of water which helps it survive the long dry season. In fact, they have been known to survive for 10 years without rain!

The deep gouges in the tree’s trunk are from elephants that strip it’s bark to obtain moisture in the dry season.

Baobab trees make excellent photography subjects because of the shape of the tree, especially when you photograph them against a dramatic sky.

This is an HDR (high dynamic range) image made by combining three exposures in post processing. After combining the exposures, I finished it off by using Topaz Restyle to give it the colour style I wanted.

The cape buffalo also number in the thousands. This one has a small oxpecker on his back. The oxpecker feeds exclusively on the backs of large mammals, cleaning them of ticks and other insects.

Best Lenses for Landscape Photography
Here's one of the most popular blog from last year.

While it may seem absurd to spend more on a lens than on the camera itself, most photographers agree that they would always prefer a cheap camera with a quality lens, rather than the other way around. And because they don’t depreciate in price as quickly, the investment is far more worthwhile.

Lion and cub at Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

After a hot lunch we were ready for our first game drive to the crater, and soon after our 2,000 foot descent to the crater floor we came across some lions. In the heat of the afternoon, the lions were mostly lying flat in the grass sleeping. That doesn’t make for very interesting photos, but we found one mother with some pretty active cubs that weren’t allowing her to get any sleep. I loved watching the interaction between the cubs.

Wildlife Photography in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Glowing golden plains, with backdrop of dark hills, and layers of clouds that change from dark to light softening the sun’s rays that bathe the land – it was a place of incredible beauty, a landscape photographer’s dream.

But I wasn’t there for the landscapes.

I was there for the 25,000 large wild animals and countless smaller animals that occupy 100 square miles in the Ngorongoro Crater of Tanzania.

Lower Myra Falls, Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
One of my favourite places in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, was Lower Myra Falls. The hike is about 1 kilometer from the parking area and it leads to a stunning group of cascades deep within the forest above Buttle Lake.

I could spend all day photographing falls like these that have such variety from numerous small falls above crystal clear emerald pools to large gushing falls. For some reason the act of getting all prepared and rushing in to take the shot before my camera and filters got covered with spray is so much fun for me!

Enjoy and share!

My First Day in Africa: Arusha, Tanzania
I wanted to stretch my legs after the long flight, see Arusha, and get some light during the time it would ordinarily be dark for me. But I got differing pieces of advice so I had to make a decision: to go or not to go?

The Lilac is Alive with Bumble Bees
In my RV park in Sidney, BC, right outside the window where I sit doing my writing is a large California Lilac.

It’s in full bloom right now and the bumble bees are loving it.

At certain times of the day the whole bush is alive with the buzzing of happy bees gathering their pollen.

I took the opportunity to get in close with my Canon 500D close-up filter which I put on the end of my 70-300mm lens. That lens has a minimum focussing distance of about 5 feet. With the close-up filter on it, I can focus on subjects that are about 1 foot away from the end of my lens.

This is the method I use for macro photography since I only have to carry the filter and not an additional lens in order to make macro images.

This is another way that I keep my camera gear down to only what I am capable of carrying: my tripod, my camera, three lenses, and an assortment of filters.

Sometimes I will rent a lens for a special occasion, but otherwise I make due with what I have.

The image below was processed using Topaz Lens Effects to give it the look of a fisheye lens. I love Topaz filters! You can check them out here if you're interested:

Giraffe at the Living Desert

You know, I go back and forth on zoos. I really only like the ones where the animals have tons of space to roam around, where they live almost as they would in the wild. I can’t stand to see animals in cages especially when they pace back and forth in frustration. But zoos do play an important role in conservation and education.

I fell in love with elephants as a child when my family visited Lion Country in California. We drove around the zoo with the windows up and later I got to hold a baby cougar and I even got to ride a baby elephant!!! I will never forget it – he had really long whisker like hairs. I have been an animal lover ever since, especially elephants.

Lion Country isn’t there anymore, but when we were in Palm Springs I heard about the Living Desert, a 1,800 acre botanical garden and zoo. I wasn’t going to get to hold ababy co... more »

Lion Country isn’t there anymore, but when we were in Palm Springs I heard about the Living Desert, a 1,800 acre botanical garden and zoo. I wasn’t going to get to hold a baby cougar or ride an elephant but they did have something pretty special — you get to feed the giraffes!!!

What do you think about zoos? Good? Bad? Do you have a favourite zoo?

Breaking Free
Birds of a feather flock together. Or … do they?

This image of different species of wading birds hanging around in a group together reminds me of the variety of folks I meet in my travels.

People from different backgrounds with different interests who might not ordinarily meet. But they have one thing in common: a desire to break free and live non-traditional lives.

Hawk Eye


Are you starting to think I want to be a wildlife photographer? Well, I really do actually, but it is going to take years of practice.

I’m still working on my quest to show you at least one image of each of the bird species I photographed in Everglades National Park but it is more a testament to the amount of wildlife in the park rather than my skills as a wildlife photographer. There are just so many opportunities, it is much easier than trying to capture wildlife anywhere else I have been.

Today’s image is a Red Shouldered Hawk. It just flew right in front of me as I hiked along one of the trails.


If you, too, want to practice your skills photographing wildlife, Everglades National Park is the place to do it.

Early Rise for the Pelican

At the far end of Everglades National Park, we set up camp at the Flamingo campground. The name is a misnomer though since there are no flamingos to be found there at all.

We rose bright and early and set out in our rented canoe to check out the bay while it was still calm and cool. I was delighted when we paddled away from the marina and around the corner to discover that the pelicans nest in the mangroves unseen from the harbour. We were able to paddle up silently and admire them from below.

You would think after two months in Florida I would have had my fill of pelicans, but they are one of my favourite birds. I love watching them fly so gracefully. But even more I love watching them take off or land in their awkward manner, bumbling and stumbling, making you wonder how they can fly at all.

I Like Ugly Animals
I have been told that I like ugly animals. But I don’t think of them as ugly – they are just so, uh, unusual that they’re cute! I found a bird that is even uglier than yesterday’s. His name is Dork the Stork. I always thought storks were elegant white birds, but no, those are egrets, a stork is this:
