The image on this post was taken near sunset in Port Aransas, TX, but the water wasn't yellow, and the sky wasn't green. I enjoyed making it appear that way, however. :-)I used Lightroom to make all the adjustments on this photo; the jumping off point was a Trey Ratcliff preset called "Turkish Blast." I made several adjustments after that, including additional graduated filters and spot brushing to achieve the final effect. Find Trey's V2 LR Presets here: http://goo.gl/bN5ZfdSubmit your Post Processed photos from a Drink and Click™ Photowalk and win great prizes!

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 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. 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 +2014-07-08 10:28:43134218CC G+

When I started I was lucky enough to come across a really useful circle share to help me on my way. As I have yet to share a circle of my own I will try and give something back, in the hope it helps those in a similar position. I am not posting this for +1's, shares or to gain new followers - so please do not feel obliged to share, +1 or follow - there are plenty of those type of circle shares around if that's what you want The circle below is just a selection of the 3000 or so I follow. All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-08 11:10:24139636CC G+

Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier.

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432632958CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos18,370The smiling circle! // Checking my profile on +CircleCount, I found out that someone added a "smile" tag on it. Tags is a feature on Circlecount where you can add tags on your profile to show what kind of content you post, but other people can add tags as well. So, some kind person added a "smile" tag on me. Whoever you are, thank you!Apparently, there are more people with the tag (see http://bit.ly/1ftgCJw), but for easier access to some positively-charged people, I've created a circle out of this list using +Circloscope. Included are some highly succesfull people, so perhaps there is some correlation.  :) That said, you should head over to circlecount.com, find your favorite similing person and add the smile tag on his/her profile ;) #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles #publiccirclesproject #reshare #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles #sharingcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #share   #shared   #followers   #addcircles #publicsharedcircles   #share   #addpeople   #addcircle #addfriends   #circle   #socialmedia     #influencers   #influencer   2014-03-12 12:30:108110118CC G+

Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

Happy birthday, Google+!

Those of you who know me well enough know the finer points as to why I have so much love for and dedication to Google+. It has affected my life in such profound ways, personally and professionally, and even after joining Google and the amazing Google+ Photos team a year and a half ago, I still find myself amazed at what my talented team is cooking up for the future of these parts.

I spent this 3rd birthday photographing some of the gorgeous landscapes that Oregon has to offer with two people who I never would have met if it weren't for Google+, +Nicole S. Young and +David Daniels. It was the first time I had the opportunity to let my new Jeep Wrangler get properly muddy as we headed to Lower Butter Creek Falls and Abiqua Falls, pictured here. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend this birthday.

But really, these birthday... more »

Happy birthday, +Brian Bonham!!

Having Brian, and by extension, his family, in my life is simply further proof of how profoundly impactful Google+ can be. I met Brian in the very, very early days of this network's existence, on some random HOA that was going on. In those early frontier days, we were all just testing out all of the cool features that the Google+ engineers were building.

After moving to Portland, Brian and his family became an integral part of my life. We've spent Thanksgiving together, Christmas together, we've traveled to all sorts of places together. And if that weren't enough, it was Brian who +Nicole S. Young and I chose to officiate our marriage. As The Most High Reverend, Brian executed our vows with his wonderful wife, +Kathi Bonham, as our witness. And then we drank.... lots. :)

Over the river and through the woods

Today was a day of redemption for me, +Brian Bonham and his son, Alex (it should have been for +Nicole S. Young, as well, but she stayed home recovering from her recent appendectomy). About six weeks ago, all four of attempted to make our way to Big Spring Creek Falls in Washington but my Ford Escape was pitifully deterred by some mild snow and ice, forcing us to turn back. The next day, I traded in the Escape for my beloved Jeep Wrangler and now I welcome such deterrents. In fact, I cherish them.

Today, the three of us successfully made it to Big Spring Creek Falls and it truly is one of my favorite that I've photographed so far. It is a gorgeous, three-tiered waterfall with each tier offering unique compositions and geology to frame up. All in all, I think we ended up spending close to two hours there and will absolutely return once... more »

I'm officially part of the +Sony Artisans of Imagery Program!

I'm super excited to announce that I am joining a small group of esteemed Sony photographers in a new program that's officially launching in a few months called the Sony Associate Artisans of Imagery program!

As you may know, I've been shooting exclusively with Sony cameras since the A7 was released (I've since added an A7r to my arsenal and will be getting an A7s next week). I've had amazing experiences with these cameras and look forward to working closely with the great folks at Sony to help ensure a bright future with their digital imaging platform!

I'm sure more news will come but for now, I'm just super excited to be able to share the news!

Where my mind goes

I've written before about the catharsis I experience whenever I immerse myself in editing photos. There is a certain harmony and peace of mind that comes with simply getting lost in crafting your own photo. As far as I'm concerned, it's as good of an elixir as any medicine.

Today was an especially trying day for me at work, one that certainly took a lot out of me and brought a level of frustration that I can't really recall having before. Thankfully, everything is just fine but I do count myself as fortunate for having my photos, like this sunset over the Grand Canyon, to restore some emotional and mental balance, allowing me to wake up even-keeled and on the right foot.

As for the technical details of the photo, it is a two-exposure manual blend using my +Sony A7. The composite was done with +Adobe Photoshop and the stylizationw... more »

Complex order

I’m down in Mountain View visiting Google HQ for the week and in preparation for that, I edited a batch of photos that I’m sharing while I’m down here. You’ve gotta love a streamlined cloud-based photos solution that allows me to have access to every ready-to-share photo from wherever in the world I am, regardless of the device that I’m using. The future is certainly going to be amazing for digital photographers.

I’m going back to Lower Antelope Canyon for today’s image. I can’t explain just how amazing this location is – for those who have already visited here, you’ll undoubtedly agree with me. When we arrived here, we sadly only had about 90 minutes to explore before the area closed, so time was of the essence. It would be a dizzying and futile attempt to describe how intricate the formations are here. Lines, curves, and waves of rockundulating and mean... more »

Dip in the water

If there is one type of photography that has held my interest longer than any other, it has to be long exposure photography. It really is an interesting irony when you think about it: you’re using a photograph – a snapshot of an instance – to convey something as ethereal and fluid as motion. More than anything else, I find the qualities of moving water to be some of the most beautiful things that I could photography. I could return to the same place over and over and still find different ways to convey it. I suppose it’s a good thing, then, that I’m able to live where I do. :)

I took this photo at Panther Creek Falls in Washington. I used my +Sony A7 and Canon 15mm Funkbuster Fisheye lens to exploit the curving scenery. The long exposure was possible due to my wonderful +Formatt-Hitech ND filters. Stylization was done in Analog Efex Pro 2, part ofthe +Nik Co... more »

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Deutschland! Großer Sieg!

Despite the rather anticlimactic final match of the FIFA World Cup, the solitary goal scored by Mario Gotze in extra-time play was beautifully struck. If you had to land a goal for your country's win, that was a truly great way to do so. So with that, I want to send a big CONGRATULATIONS, GERMANY! on your monumental victory - enjoy your country's celebrations! But know that we'll be seeing you again in 2018. ;)

To commemorate Germany's win today, I dug into my shoot in Berlin earlier this year. This is the famed Fernsehturm Berlin, a beautiful radio tower located near Alexanderplatz. I took a stroll around this area shortly before meeting up for lunch with my friend, +James Duncan Davidson and a few +Wunderlist Android engineers. It was taken with my +Sony A7 and Canon 24-70/2.8 II. Stylization wasdone in... more »

+Kodak Matiash - The Mud Dog

I was actually prepping to share a photo that I recently took at BZ falls when I came across the album of Kodak photos taken a few weeks back at his favorite place in the world - Thousand Acres near Troutdale, OR. Given the heat wave that Portland is experiencing now, I thought it'd be fun to share a photo with cooler temps and refreshing rain. It looks like we'll be hovering in the high 90's - low 100's for the next week so I guess it's good that I'll be heading down to Mountain View on Monday, where the temps are about 20 degrees cooler.

This photo was taken handheld using my +Sony A7r and Sony FE 24-70/4 lens. I simply applied a +VSCO preset (Fuji Provia 400x) in Lightroom and made some minor custom adjustments.

Stay cool and enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Why do people love Google+ so much? (ie. You rock, +martin shervington)

You could say that I am exposed to a fairly wide array of user sentiment here on Google+. It's a comes with the territory sort of thing and one that I wholly embrace. And while I definitely admit to my tendency of focusing on the fly in the ointment as it relates to a lot of the posts that I'm +mentioned into daily, every now and then, someone shares a post that brims with so much positive energy and good spirit that it just recharges me and serves as a reminder as to why I love doing what I do here.

So thank you, +martin shervington, for putting this wonderful post together. It means a great deal to a lot of people, including all of the hard working engineers, product managers, UX designers, and Ops folks at Google who have worked tremendously hard to build and expand on this... more »

The precarious path

A few months ago, +Matt Kloskowski, +Hudson Henry, +Rick LePage and I headed out to the Oregon coast to take a crack at photographing Thor's Well at sunset. Our evening yielded great results although it came at the expense of Matt nearly falling into a somewhat substantial chasm and totally twisting his ankle (I wish I recorded it). Before actually reaching Thor's Well, we stopped at this little beach area (I can't recall the spot) to take advantage of the beautiful rocky scenes that our coastline is famous for.

I used my +Sony A7 to capture several exposures of this particular scene as the waves came crashing in. I was able to get just the right exposure thanks to my +Formatt-Hitech CPL filter, which cut out about two stops of light. I then composited the best of three exposures in Photoshop, resulting in this photo. Stylization was done in... more »

Last light

I've been on a photo editing kick over the past few days, going through my backlog because I haven't had much time to shoot new stuff recently. I don't know how it is for all of you but I find that I'm usually able to get through editing three-or-so images before my creative juices start to run low. The concept of batch editing photos really doesn't fit into my workflow, as I'm sure many of you can relate to, and so I try to be extra aware of when I feel like creativity-fatigue begins to set in. That's usually when I hide Lightroom and go downstairs because tomorrow, after all, is another day!

I took this image at the Old Davenport Pier, California back in min-January. Getting to the beach in this area really requires timing things properly as far as the tide goes. When you can time the sunset alongside the tide going out, all it takes is... more »

The Tireless Flow

It has been way too long since I'd paired up my +Sony A7 with my Canon 15mm Funkbuster fisheye lens. The world is always so much more interesting when you add copious amounts of radial distortion. They key is finding the right elements in your frame that benefit, as it were, from bending and stretching. I always try to put anything with linear qualities around the edges of the frame because that is the region where distortion is most prevalent. It's always a fun experiment and one that constantly reinvigorates my urge to create.

I took this photo back in February, while visiting Panther Creek Falls in Washington state. It's easily one of my favorite places to visit. I used my Sony A7 along with the aforementioned Canon 15mm Fisheye lens (via a Metabones adapter). The camera was kept rock solid still thanks to my trusty +Really Right... more »

Happy birthday, mate!

Well, in all of its miraculous wonder, Google Now popped up a card on my new lil LG G Watch to let me know that it's my friend, +Trey Ratcliff's birthday. It really has been a pleasure hanging, shooting, drinking and working with you over the years and I have no doubt that you only has more crazy stuff up your sleeve to share with the world.

So, my friend, I lift a glass up for you tonight. Enjoy your day even though it's probably well past being over on your side of the globe. Here's a little throwback to when we roamed the mean streets of Shinjuku, hustling those Yakuza and dropping Yen like rain.

Tokyo in Motion II

Shortly before calling it quits for the evening, +Trey Ratcliff and I decided to take our chances on getting access to the top floor of the nearby Shibuya Hotel Excel Tokyu for some high-in-the-sky photos of the framed Shibuya Crossing. This endeavor turned out to be easier than expected - all we did was strike up a quick chat with some English speaking hotel guests who were sympathetic to our cause. A few minutes later and we were perched against the window overlooking this crazy intersection.

I think we had about 20 minutes or so of solid photo-taking time before a security guard stumbled onto us, asked to see our hotel keycards, and then asked us to leave. At this point, we queued up our clueless tourist apologies and meandered back to the hotel elevators. All in a day's work!

These are my two nieces, Ashlyn and her older sis, Lily. I love these two munchkins and get such a kick at how they're growing into their own personalities. They obliged me when I asked to take their photo during the sacred Purchasing of the Fireworks event the other day and now I get to share a few of the results. Pinch-able cheeks^max.

Both images were taken with my +Sony A7, transferred to my +OnePlus One, and edited in the +VSCO app before sharing.

Happy 4th, 'murica!

I love the vibe that surges through the towns here in Nebraska, part of the heartland of America. I'm spending this holiday with family here in Lincoln and based on the fireworks spree that we went on yesterday, it's safe to say that the night sky will be filled with lots of beautiful colors.

To all of my American friends, have a happy and safe 4th of July! To all of my international mates, enjoy the weekend!

Tokyo in Motion

The other day, I finished putting together a little project that I started while I was in Tokyo. It is based on a very basic observation: Tokyo and its denizens are in a constant state of motion. It's actually quite beautiful to see in action. Last year, on my Portfolio page, I added a Special Projects section reserved for these sorts of cohesive collections and the newest one is called Tokyo in Motion. I'll be sharing some images from this project over the next few days.

Beauty in every corner

I tend to get turned off at plans that focus solely around what’s at the destination. For example, as much as I want to be able to see every waterfall in the Pacific Northwest, I’m much more excited to visit the trails that offer as much along the journey as they do at the destination. It’s along the journey that I tend to find some of the more interesting things to photograph – the little things that are much easier to overlook than what’s usually the ‘big payoff’ at the end. Little cascading waterfalls and streams are found all over the place on certain trails. All it takes is slowing down the pace of the journey to see them and figure out how to best represent them to all of you. Luckily, there is no shortage of trails to visit up here and I’m going to make sure that I trek along as many as I can with camera in hand and eyes wide open.

[The answer that Larry provides via today's NY Times interview provides a ton of clarity to a lot of misconceptions that I hear about. Nice interview, Farhad Manjoo]

A. Mr. Page: Yes, if anything, probably more important. [...]When people ask about Google Plus they think about it as, “I’m going to the stream.” For us, Google Play reviews are part of Google Plus, too. We see all those things growing and being important for us.

Relentless

When I recently visited the Peter Iredale shipwreck found on the Oregon coast, I was initially disappointed. When I think of a shipwreck, I imagine a vast hull, all rusted and torn, jutting up from the sand where it has been embedded. And, for the most part, this is the case with the Peter Iredale. I guess I was just expecting more wreck. Despite that, however, I found myself spending way more time focusing on the smaller flotsam that was strewn near the main hull. There is something about the way the waves interact with these smaller objects that I find mesmerizing and certainly greater than the sum of its parts.

Google+ Photos: edit your previous edits, and Auto Awesome Effects

If you’re afraid of commitment, then you probably don’t edit your photos online :-) Reason being: many services overwrite (aka “destroy”) your images during the editing process. So once you save a change, you can’t change your mind.

In contrast: Google+ Photos offers non-destructive editing on Android, iOS and Chrome, and it syncs your edits to the cloud. So you can start editing on one device, continue on another, and your originals are always available. Today we’re making the Chrome experience even more flexible by letting you go back and adjust your previous edits. (Commitment-phobes rejoice!) For example:

- Suppose you want to re-crop a photo but leave the other effects alone. Or keep your choice of frames, but turn up the brightness and contrast.
- Now you can, and youdon’t have ... more »

+OnePlus One FTW!

The other day, I received my One. After some rather extensive use, I am really pleased to say that this truly is a wonderful mobile device. Prior to it, I was using the Oppo Find 7a (thanks to +Colby Brown for letting me borrow it) and I honestly feel that the One exceeds that device in nearly all ways. It is thinner, lighter, has great battery life and, thanks to the inclusion of Cyanogen 11s, runs a near-vanilla Android experience very smoothly. Also, the material used for the black backing feels better than any phone I've held thus far. 

For those of you who are still waiting for your invites to order, all I can say is that it is certainly worth the wait. I am already excited to see what they have planned for future models given how disruptive this one is.

Hamburg serenade

After writing my post earlier today, I thought it'd be fun to challenge myself to take a series of photos with my +Sony A7 combined with my FE 24-70mm lens on the relatively short walk from my hotel to dinner, only to follow that up with transferring, editing and sharing them from my iPhone 5s. I was in good company with fellow Googlers, +John Nack, +Aravind Krishnaswamy, +Derin Babacan and Mr Nik himself, +Nils Kokemohr.

All of the images were edited in +Snapseed (I can't wait to share what we're scheming up on that front) and are being posted here. I've gotta say, this workflow has been growing very fast on me. No RAW remorse. No regrets. Just cool pictures that I'm able to share near real time from a camera that I truly enjoy using. All is good and it's only going to get better!

I've been battling a pretty gnarly flu since getting back from Australia (I wholly blame +Colby Brown, who I sat next to on the flight back from Oz). Despite it, I did end up driving up to photograph the famed Peter Iredale shipwreck in northwestern Oregon at sunset (which is at a crazy late hour this time of year!). I was joined by +Nicole S. Young, +Brian Bonham, +Jeffrey Yen, and +Craig Colvin. We all had a great time and were even surprised to see a little bit of color make its way into the sky from the rather drab sunset. I'm paying for it with my flu today but it was totally worth the trip.

I took this image using my +Sony A7r and Canon 17mm T/S lens, using the awesome Lucriot filter system by +Formatt-Hitech. These are two tone-mapped panels that I stitched vertically (a vertorama) in Photoshop and then edited in Analog Efex Pro 2, part of the+... more »

Where time is timeless

I can't say I remember seeing actual trees growing right out of sand - like... full on trees. But there they were in Cairns. While photographing one of the 2014 Cairns Ironman athletes along a lightly trafficked portion of Captain Cook Highway, I took a break to take in my surroundings. I don't think it requires much convincing when I say that this was one of the most tranquil locations that I've ever been to. It was simply beautiful.

I took this photo with my +Sony A7 and FE 70-200 lens. Now that I have all of my photos imported into my production Lightroom catalog back at home, I edited it in Analog Efex Pro 2, part of the +Nik Collection by Google along with some slight Lightroom adjustments..

Can't stop. Won't stop.

Despite the positively gloomy and rainy weather, I had a blast photographing the 2014 Cairns Ironman athletes doing their thing. It really puts things into perspective when I begin to complain about a sore back or a blister and then see these men and women of all ages push through swimming, bicycling and running across herculean distances in utterly crap weather as if they were built to do this. Really remarkable.

Time to kick off the 2014 Cairns Ironman Competition

It is such a treat to see all of these men and women trump forward and begin a day filled with grueling physical feats. Our media badges and vests gives us unfettered access to any part of the race, which is how I was able to get right up to the Start Line (and get drenched with a few waves. :)

The Microstock Conundrum

"Next month marks my eighth-year "anniversary" with licensing my images through iStock. When I started, I was fairly new to the world of digital photography after having been using a film SLR for several years, and wanted to improve my skills. Microstock was a way for me to do just that, and with the interesting side-effect of being able to make photography a career. I owe a lot to that start and probably would not be doing what I do now if I had not discovered microstock in the first place, but the industry is definitely not what it used to be..."

1,100 feet over the Great Barrier Reef

After yesterday, I came to the conclusion that there are two ways that one must experience the famed Great Barrier Reef in Australia: 1. Up close and personal via snorkel or scuba and 2. Hover over it in a helicopter. Having the luxury of doing both in one day is something that I will forever be grateful for, especially being someone who is pretty much terrified on marine life. Snorkeling amongst the dizzying array of fish and coral was a huge step for me and my rationale simply was, I'm sitting right above the Great Barrier Reef! Ultimately, I spent a few hours with my face pushed below the surface of the water and actually came to appreciate the tranquility of the teeming life down there. It was an experience that I'm truly glad to have had.

I took this photo out of the front seat window of the helicopter that we were in... more »

Looking differently at Millaa Millaa Falls

We had some rather Portland-esque weather up in the Atherton Tablelands yesterday, but that didn't keep us from hitting the waterfall circuit that can be found there. In some ways, the circuit very much reminded me of the one found along the Columbia River Gorge's scenic highway. The first fall we visited was Millaa Milla falls - a tall and regal waterfall cascading down about 60 feet (18.3 meters) into a placid swimming hole.

To be honest, despite its beauty, I found myself trying to focus on capturing small details to showcase this waterfall rather than just fitting it all in one frame. I used my +Sony A7r and Sony 70-200/4 to focus tightly on the top right crest of the fall because I liked how the foliage flanked the water - nature framing nature. I then transferred the photo over to my iPad Air and edited it in +Snapseed and... more »

Tiny, little moments

I arrived into Cairns yesterday relatively refreshed, thanks to my crazy body actually letting me will itself to sleep for about 8 hrs on my flight over. After a leisurely dinner with the small group of photographers who are here to photograph the Cairns Adventure Festival, we hit the beach at Palm Cove and enjoyed a relatively subtle sunset. Forgetting that we're approaching the winter season down here, I didn't factor in just how early sunset is compared to back home... or how late sunrise is (which we'll be heading our to enjoy in about 45 minutes).

As for this photo, I took it handheld with my +Sony A7 and Sony FE 55mm/1.8 lens. The articulating screen makes it ridiculously easy to get these low perspectives. Editing was done in Snapseed on my iPad Air.

Return to Oz

Later this evening, I'm kicking off about 20+ hours of flying back to the wondrous land of Australia, specifically Cairns, and I thought it'd be fitting to share a photo taken on my last trip there a few months ago. This was taken at a natural bridge found within Springbrook National Park on the McPherson Range in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland, south of Brisbane. I truly was a sight to see.

As for the specific reason for returning to Australia - I was selected to be one of seven international photographers who will be photographing the 2014 Cairns Airport Adventure Festival - most notably the IRONMAN Cairns, a grueling triathlon that features a 2.36 mile (3.8km) swim, a 112 mile (180km) bike leg that travels one of the most scenic coastal roads in Australia towards Port Douglas and a 26.2 mile (42.2km) run that includes the Cairns Esplanade... more »

Purged

I played Pin the tail on the random photo folder this morning and landed on my visit to Bandon, OR a few years ago with +Matt Kloskowski. Bandon is one of those places that looks amazing in any light and its beaches offer photographers a thousand and one ways to create unique exposures... you just need to be willing to get your feet (and your tripod) a little wet.

Was and is

Every time I visit this part of Thousand Acres park near Troutdale, OR, I always enjoy the juxtaposition of being surrounded by tons of nature while being flanked by these ginormous (impressed that Chrome accepts ginormous as a properly spelled word :) ) high-tension power lines and junctions. Recently, +Nicole S. Young and I took +Kodak Matiash here to play around in the rain and mud puddles. It was a perfect opportunity to test out my new +Sony A7r coupled with my new Sony FE 24-70/f4 lens. The articulating screen and AF made shooting at this freakishly low and odd angle super easy.

Stylization was done pretty much exclusively in Analog Efex Pro 2, part of the +Nik Collection by Google. I normally steer away from adding faux dust spots/scratches to my images but I really think they lend themselves quite nicely with this particular color palette.

Another day

Despite having the week off, my mind is beginning to race a bit with the travel that I've got coming up starting on Monday, which kicks off a 3-week trek to Cairns (Australia), Mountain View, Germany, and back home to New York City. There is no doubt that I've covered more miles in these five months of 2014 than in all my life and I'm super thankful for it because it has let me see parts of the world that I might not have had the opportunity to otherwise.

But, I think I'm happy turning to this perfectly serene sunrise taken at Crescent Head in Australia. I'm really looking forward to returning there next week to photograph the Cairns Ironman competition with my great mate, +Lauren Bath (who was actually just off to my left when I took this photo) and a small handful of other talented photographers from around the globe. Not too shabby.
