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.

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed.

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!  Many people are sitting out this week, but there are a lot of new ones too!  Great participation last week!!Quick start instructions:➀ post a link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂ publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃ add this circle, and refresh it every week.You will be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens mainly in the comments, but of course re-shares too.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!This will be done once per week, starting fresh again.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one! Biggest Ripple last week: (click drop-down circle with triangle in upper right corner to see Ripples) was 3 Deep: +Pål Børsting, +Ivani Marcondes, and ourselves. Runners-up, with 2 Deep: +Trever McGhee +Marilyn Benham +Andrey Mashnich +Niklas Hartz +Sara Schiavi +Andreas Levi +Mikhail Petrovsky +2013-02-28 20:04:102781783659CC G+

Eileen O'Duffy11,884This is my Irish circle of friends. These people are either Irish or living and working in Ireland. They include a mixture of photographers, artists, writers, educators, technology, business people and more. Some don’t post very often, some only share limited to their circles. But they all have one thing in common: I know them, they are good people and genuine people and I always enjoy their posts. If I’ve left somebody out by mistake, please let me know. I’m so delighted to have met some of you through this Ireland community over the last week, I’d never have found you otherwise! 2012-12-20 23:22:44362215CC G+

An Earagail & An Eachla Mhor.

Thats the Irish names for the two mountains in this image or you could say Errigal Mountain and Aghla More.

After looking out the hotel window early on the monday morning to see a clear blue sky, I decided to go back to bed and have relaxing breakfast. No point going out to shoot in that weather is there ?
Well not turn really. The image I was after needed the sun to in a certain position and hopefully the clouds would arrive in time.
I love the looks you get from passing cars. The road is over on the far left side of the image and I had to stand in the bog waiting for the cars to pass, the clouds reflections in the water and the sun to pop the shadows on the mountains. No too much to happen all at the same time.

The other view of the waterfall.

Here we have the view of the waterfall as you walk up the mountain. And there are 2 little falls. The rocks and tree on the right show the camera position. You can just about see Tonelagee Mt in the background covered in low clouds while the sun was out over my direction. Hard to capture an image without my shadow and the tripod but I did manage to get it.

"Lough Bray Lower"


I have being away from Google+ due to other things happening and not being able to get out and get new images.  I have a passion for two things, photography and cycling. But family comes first bar none.

On my way back down the mountains on the day the pervious images of DerryBawn Bridge were taken, I stopped at Lough Bray. There are two lakes and this image is of Lough Bray Lower. I have being after an image from here foe a long time. Happy with this one but I feel I can get a better one if all the conditions fall into place. A simple task, not.
However enjoy this one while you wait until that happens.

"The Weir"

Again, up to me neck in it. The same river, Glendasan river but this time is Glendalough.  This is the "mononeil" version of the image I posted from the camera-phone in the last post.
Shot down low with the wadders on. Get a pair f you don't have them as you can get some interesting images and composition.

"Derrybawn Bridge"

For the passed 15 years or more I have being visiting Glendalough, Co Wicklow for walks and photography. To get to Glendalough you pass through the lovely little village of Laragh. Never stopping bar to get a snack or two in the shop, I missed this wounderful bridge across the Glendasan River. A friend of mine, Fran, posted an image of this bridge on Facebook a while back and I knew I had to pay a visit. Last week I meet up with Fran for a days shooting and I asked him to show me this bridge. I put on the fisherman's waders and into the river I went. This is the resulting image from the second visit of the day.
The first time was early in the morning and we had blanket cloud cover which was ok but I needed strong light to add the contrast I was after. During the day the weather was getting better by the hour. As we were driving back to Laragh after a long... more »

"Cloghoge River, Lough Dan"

Looking back along the Cloghoge River towards Luggala Mountain from the bridge. I like the way the water is back and points into the image towards Luggala Mt.

"Shadow Path"

On the way down to Lough Dan you do come across some private land. This path is on private land, however this was taken from the gate. 
I love the shadows on the path and the light & dark trees.
The question where does the path lead you ? Into a field full of Deer.

More from Lough Dan to follow.............

"Lough Dan Trail"

This is the trail "walk" down to Lough Dan. You walk on the left of this wall as this field is private and full of deer.
Wonderful lead-in-lines with the rock wall on the left which make a triangle with the ridge line of the mountain. 
Again the soft, light clouds are in this image as with the last couple of posts from Lough Dan.
I think I have a couple more images from this walk to Lough Dan still to come.

"Cloghoge River, Lough Dan"

After you walk down the path and along the track you come to this old building beside the Cloghoge River. A little bit further passed the house and this is the view you see.
What makes this image for me is the reflections of the trees in the water around the far shoreline. I have an image when the wind was high and you can't see these reflections and it just doesn't work.
I also like the layers effect from the bright foreground grass, dark water, bright sandy shoreline, darks trees and then finally the bright sky.

"Tree Apart"

I went for a lovely walk the other day in the Wicklow Mountains down to Lough Dan. It's top of my list of locations to walk and shoot. I always come away with something different and this time was no exception.
I love the composition of the single tree against the group of trees. Can't remember seeing this before and I have walked this route more time than I have had hot dinners :-)
I clouds were doing strange things also as you can see here and in the posts to follow.
Not my usual TS-E image with the Canon as was travelling light and had the Nex-7 with 12mm Zeiss with me.
We crossed the river Cloghoge River using the stepping stones as the water level was low. Happily to report nobody fell in the water and we walked back along the trail through Ballinrush. Again something I haven't done in a long time. This give you a different viewpoint of... more »

"Storm Clouds over Lough Tay"

I had to stop on the way back home after shooting the waterfall image ( here https://plus.google.com/116143938603101885158/posts/LPaBSroiTBh ) as the clouds and light was magic. I love the 3D like feel to the image as the foreground rock jump out of the image. 
It's not your normal picture postcard image from Lough Tay, but I don't care as this is my image. 
The shadows and highlight area don't look the best in this low res jpeg (175kb) compared to the 252 MB original file. Believe me there is bucket loads of detail in the forest on the right & left shadow area.

"Aghla More from The Bog"

I'm nearly finished with going through my images from the 2-Day trip to Errigal last month.
Here we have Aghla More, on the left and Muckish Mountain, on the right with the top covered in clouds. The composition was set up to include the foreground bog on the right to mirror Aghla More. The foreground was also in shade as the early morning sun hadn't peeked over the Derryveagh Mountains behind me. Once you see the connection between the foreground bog and Aghla More your eye is drawn along the water line of the bog.

How Sharp is it ??

If you have being following my posts on Google+, you will know I use the Canon 24mm TS-E Mk2 lens on the 5D Mk2 all of the time for my landscape photography.

Why ?
The answer is simple, and it's this : It's one of the best if not the best Lens from Canon. It's sharp and the contrast is great. The quality of the images from this lens is better than the 24mm fixed L'series lens from Canon.
However, it gets better.  As this is a tilt and shift lens you can achieve crazy Depth of Field (DOF) at any aperture setting. Set the aperture to say f/8 or f/11 and tilt the lens down you will get a images which is sharp from the tip of your nose to infinity. 

Look at the attacked image. Both cameras were manually focused at the same point. I used a point in the middle of the frame so as too remove any differences from sensor / lens size. Onew... more »

Delvin River, The Poisoned Glen

Before you get into the Glen proper you walk along a path and pass a small bridge over the Delvin river.I walked along the river banks for about 100 meters and spotted this view of the river with the Poisoned Glen in the background.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

It is easy to see from this true-color image why Ireland is called the Emerald Isle. Intense green vegetation, primarily grassland, covers most of the country except for the exposed rock on mountaintops. Ireland owes its greenness to moderate temperatures and moist air. The Atlantic Ocean, particularly the warm currents in the North Atlantic Drift, gives the country a more temperate climate than most others at the same latitude. The cloud-free view shown here is extremely rare. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured the image on October 11, 2010, a time of year when Irish weather alternates between rainstorms from the west and cool, dry weather brought by high-pressure systems known as anticyclones.

Errigal Mt. & Dunlewy Lough

I have never seen the water in the lake so high, as you can see or not in this case, the base of the tree in the foreground. Settled in for the afternoon with my packed lunch waiting for the right light to arrive on Errigal mountain top and the clouds to separate. 

I posted a few Instagram images  from here ( Link : http://mononeil.photoshelter.com/#!/instagram ) so you can have a quick peek.

Using the Canon 24mm TS-E Mk2 lens on the Canon 5D Mk2 to stitch 3 images together to produce this 40 megapixel image. The level of detail and sharpness amazing :-)

An Earagail & An Eachla Mhor.

Thats the Irish names for the two mountains in this image or you could say Errigal Mountain and Aghla More.

After looking out the hotel window early on the monday morning to see a clear blue sky, I decided to go back to bed and have relaxing breakfast. No point going out to shoot in that weather is there ?
Well not turn really. The image I was after needed the sun to in a certain position and hopefully the clouds would arrive in time.
I love the looks you get from passing cars. The road is over on the far left side of the image and I had to stand in the bog waiting for the cars to pass, the clouds reflections in the water and the sun to pop the shadows on the mountains. No too much to happen all at the same time.

Storm Clearing over The Poisoned Glen.

I was up in Donegal last weekend as I had to visit a couple of customers on Monday and give a talk to Letterkenny Photo Club Monday night. I was after two images, one from Errigal Mountain and the other form The Poisoned Glen which is on the opposite of the road.
The weather not not good driving up over the 4 hours. However when I got to Letterkenny the conditions started to look interesting and I just might get what I was after. 
Well that was an understatement as I came away with over 12 images from the Derryveagh Mountains form Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. I very productive little trip.
Here we have The Poisoned Glen from the viewpoint at the side of the main road. The iPhone images I posted were from down in the Glen and I will post that image during the week.

Charity Print Sale to aid the Teenage Cancer Trust
A Quiet Moment | Unique Limited Edition Print - 1 Only.
 
A little over five months ago, Judith Beattie from Bridge of Weir was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. At the age of 20, Judith had everything ahead of her. She had just started her final year at studying at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DoJ) in Dundee and was generally enjoying life. She has spent the best part of the last 5 months undergoing intensive treatment at the Beatson Cancer Clinic in Glasgow. 

This week Judith's twin sister Katie has organised an exhibition at the Glasgow Skypark with the help of Life With Art, to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. I only found out about the exhibition this evening, but I have donated a unique Limited Edition print titled A Quiet Moment which will be available topu... more »

St Kevin's Way.

Look to the left above the ruin and this is the location of the waterfall from the past couple of images. Clouds came a rolling in and I was starting to get hungry. However I just had to walk down the river a bit to capture this normal image from St Kevin's Way before I headed back down the mountains to Laragh for a bit to eat.
I have a couple more images from the trip to follow in the next couple of weeks.

The Waterfall.

Here is the view of the waterfall tucked up against the rock outcrop under the tree from the previous image looking town towards St Kevin's Way and the Vale of Glendasan in the Wicklow Mountains.

The other view of the waterfall.

Here we have the view of the waterfall as you walk up the mountain. And there are 2 little falls. The rocks and tree on the right show the camera position. You can just about see Tonelagee Mt in the background covered in low clouds while the sun was out over my direction. Hard to capture an image without my shadow and the tripod but I did manage to get it.

Camaderry Waterfall

This is the "Arty" version of the waterfall from Camaderry Mountain, at St Kevin's Way in the Wicklow Mountains ( ie the view from  the last post ). I'm still working on the image from the Canon with the TS-E lens and that will come next week so we can compare the two versions.

A sample of the Duotone image that I am using for the book printing "Shades of Ireland". This is the size of the waves I was having on the east coast while the west coast had 20-30 foot waves.

Clogherhead

This is the image taken from the spot the last post "Me and me Shadow" was from, Clogherhead, Co Louth. This is on the east coast of Ireland.  While the country has being hit by very bad weather of late with high winds and water levels the north east coast had not being effected to such a degree.  At the same time this was taken the west coast had 20-30 foot waves. Me none. I did get a couple images of some small waves at Port Beach which is over the other side of the headland on the left. I had to wait for 1-2 hours for the clouds to arrive as up until this point I had a clear blue sky.

Looking the other way

We are still on top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, but this time looking the other direction into the heart of the Wicklow Mountains as the clouds start to bring the rain. I did manage to finish my quick lunch and start the walk back down before the showers arrived. I have one more image from the journey back down. It was hard to shade the front elements of the lens and Lee filters as I didn't have my full f-stop backpack with me. My woolly hat on my hand did the trick as I had a great deal of flair coming in from the left. It's times like this that I wish my 11 year old son was a bit taller so I can use him as a sun block.

Form the Top.

Looking down on South County Dublin from the top of The Sugar Loaf.
I like the way the shadow of the mountain points  you into the image. The clouds should tell you that not much longer after this the sun disappeared and the rain arrived. But wait a few minutes and that will change. This is Ireland after all.

The next image will be the view looking back the other direction into the heart of the Wicklow Mountains. Stayed tuned.

A sneak peek at another poem by my daughter that made it into the final selection for my book "Shades of Ireland".

Mountains

Formed beyond time
Still standing
Old and lifeless
Eroded and abandoned
Left to tend to itself

Here is were god works
His magic hands
Creates beauty
In every possible way
Vegetation and creatures alone

Where sounds echo
Chirps and growls
And the sound of leaves
As they are ripped from trees
The wind howling away

Alone in solid company
Footsteps after footstep
Taken in every beauty
Listening to all sounds
We travel to the top
Of God’s mountain tops
