Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me (if you haven't reached the 5000 limit already!)PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, agressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile mostly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind the profile.B) Your page or profile mostly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mostly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation ;-)#gatheringcircle   #thegatheringcircle         #circleshare       #circlesharing         #circleoftheday   #handpicked         #sharedcircles         #sharedcircle       #sharedpubliccircles     #fullcircleshare         #addmetoyourcircles     #circleoftheday     #bestsharedcircle         #thebestcirclesongoogle     #thebestcircle     #circles         2014-04-14 12:55:38402170150177CC G+
Gailen Mapes62,568Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-14 10:20:051978410CC G+

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721023719CC G+

A Mossy Bump - Sintra, #Portugal

A trip to #Sintra  is a trip to a world in itself. From the old village full of palaces, gardens, museums, Art&Craft galleries and shops, to the luxurious forests and woods, not to mention the mountain, with spectacular views over the ocean and Lisbon, one thing I assure you: You'll never get bored!

So, I've been there a couple of days ago and bumped into this... bump. 

If you ask a geologist, he'll say the bump's been here for a few million years... 
If you ask a botanist he'll say: Mosses is the common name for the Bryophyta, a botanical division of small, soft plants that are typically 1–10 cm (0.4–3.9 in) tall. They commonly grow close together in clumps or mats in damp or shady locations. There are approximately 12,000 species of moss...

So, now you know...

Path to Farm Ville - Peninha/Sintra, #Portugal

I took this shot yesterday during a Scounting/Shooting trip to #Sintra . There was this curve on the forrest path and the #Ocean suddenly appeared at a distance, just before passing by a remnant/ruin of a farm gate. Perfect spot to shoot...
But it was only when I started to develop this photo in #Lightroom that I realised the variety and depth of the colours and textures of the scenery.
This reminds one of those oil paintings people used to hang on walls a few years back, doesn't it?

Now the photo details:
A single exposure processed in Lightroom 5.

Foxglove Flower - Sintra, #Portugal

First shot processed and published from todays Scounting/Shooting  afternoon with my friend +Miguel Almeida. We went to Sintra with some ideas in mind but couldn't find exactly what we were looking for. 
Anyway, whenever I have my gear, every moment is an opportunity to shoot, and I stumbled upon tis little beauty just before going back to the car. 
Do you know how is it called? I didn't. But Teresa gave me a hint in Portuguese (Dedaleira) and Google made the rest: it's a foxglove flower (Digitalis). Neat, isn't it?
For more information go to the Wikipedia article: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitalis

Now the Photo details:
Camera: Nikon D7100
Aperture: f/5.6
Speed: 1/200 sec

Medieval Fair in a Medieval Village - Marvão, #Portugal

I captured this scene in October last year. There was a charming little Fair at Marvão, a medieval village in Portugal, close to the Spanish border. 
Marvão's name is derived from an 8th-century Muslim duke, named Ibn Marwan. Ibn Marwan used the fortress at the top of the hill as a power base when establishing an independent statelet ("emirate", duchy) - covering much of modern-day Portugal - during the Cordoban emirate (884-931 CE). 
The view shown here was taken from the highest point of the castle tower. As with other 11th-13th-century castles, the early medieval improvements and development of Marvão castle reflect the innovations brought back by crusading orders from the near east (notably the highly influential Hospitaller castle in Syria, the Krak des Chevaliers).

Windy Cape - Cabo da Roca, #Portugal

Digging the archives once more, I just found this reminder of a windy afternoon spent at the most Western point of continental Europe: Cabo da Roca. Taken in February 2013 with my old Nikon D3200. It rained all day and a couple of hours before the evening the wind cleared the mist and we could see a sharp horizon at a distance. I just love the Ocean...

While I'm waiting for my new iMac to be delivered, here is another shot from the Nikon D3200 archives.

Sunny Day - Burgos, #Spain

From last year trip to France. We usually stop in Burgos for the night and this one was taken just after we left the luggage at the Hotel. I just love to walk the streets of Burgos. They are full of life. And color too. This is Plaza Mayor just before sundown.

Preparing for the Big Thing - Barcarena, #Portugal

As you may know (or not) +Miguel Almeida, +Fabs Fabian and myself are preparing a joint Photo Exhibition at Fábrica da Pólvora de Barcarena in Portugal. The grand opening is this Saturday 5th of April at 16.00h. Until then we are preparing the place with lightning, plants, hanging the photos on the wall and figuring out which food to include in the catering for the inauguration. It's a lot of fun and this shot is part of a time lapse we are preparing to show you all.  
If you are in the area and feel like showing up we'll be delighted to have you...
The big tamale will end on the 18th of May...

Hôtel du Chateau - Campagne, #France  

Now that I found the name of this place (please refer to my previous post) here's a shot of another charming B&B alongside the road to Cadouin. It is located opposite the Church and the Chateau.
I just love Dordogne in the Summer...

Église de Campagne - Dordogne, #France

I took this shot last year during my trip to Dordogne. I stopped the car in a small yard on the left side of the road and found this little charming church next to the gates to a beautiful Chateau. After taking the pictures we took off, and continued our journey to Cloître-de-Cadouin which was the main destination that afternoon. 
I didn't publish this shot earlier, to be honest, because I didn't take a note with the name of the church and the place. And I didn't want to put as a title Church - #France' . It would be ridiculous, there's lots of them. 
So, you ask, how did I found its name?
Simple. Google Maps.

I spent a few days on a meditation retreat near our Stupa in the Algarve. Couldn't resist to escape during the night to take a picture to show to my friends ॐ ❤ ☮

iPhone Moon - Paço d'Arcos, #Portugal

The Spring is definitely arriving. Another beautiful day here in Oeiras. I just arrived from my afternoon walk to the beach. I forgot it's full moon and didn't take my camera with me. Again... 
The iPhone will have to do. Again...

Afternoon Mirror - Oeiras, #Portugal

One more shot from another walk to the beach, here in Oeiras. This one was yesterday. I didn't take my camera with me. But I had the iPhone and its camera did a not so bad job for a low light condition (usually they suck with poor light)...
Wonderful evening again... It's Springtime, folks :)

Spring is Around the Corner - Oeiras, #Portugal

Yesterday I went for a walk to the beach here in Oeiras. It was a glorious afternoon. The warm temperature, the flowers perfume that infused the air, the gentle breeze, the musical sound of the waves. As I was passing by the fountain on my way back home I couldn't resist to capture that moment magical light.
The storms of this Winter are already a memory. Spring is just around the corner...

Autumn Beach - Adraga, #Portugal

"Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”
Alan Watts

I had this photo in the archives. It remained there, unnoticed for a while. I took it on the first day I went out to experiment my new Nikon camera, and I still remember it was a cold, windy and rainy day.  Regardless, mother nature is always beautiful, isn't she?
I hope you like it.

Now some technical details on the photo:
Camera Nikon D7100, Lens AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, Focal Length 30mm, Aperture f/8, Shutter Speed 1/250 sec. ISO 100. A single shot processed in Lightroom 5.

Paradise Blue - Estoril, #Portugal

"Do all things with love."
Og Mandino

I just love the Estoril Coast. Being such a highly populated area it is full of little samples of Heaven on Earth, like this beautiful and charming little beach I had the pleasure and privilege of capturing. I wish all of us could see and live on places like this...

And now some technical details on the photo:
It was around the sunset hour when I took it. Five exposures, tone mapped in Photomatix, and the final result post processed in Lightroom 5. Camera Nikon D7100, Lens Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, with the central exposure @ 13.0sec. , aperture f/22, focal length 11mm, ISO 100.

No Time For Swimming - Estoril, #Portugal

The Estoril Coast is one of the most glamorous places to live in Portugal. It is full of wonderful apartments, villas, gardens, hotels, palaces, monuments and even a casino. A James Bond movie was once  filmed here. But what attracted people to this wonderful area, just 20 Km West of Lisbon, was the seaside. Here you can find charming little beaches, facing the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In this one here, you'll find yourself like you're in the middle of nowhere. It's you, the wind blowing in your face, the smell of the sea and the sound of the waves. You can feel the night falling down and the light fading away... At this hour of the day it's you and mother nature.
And you would never guess that above this cliff on the right is a parking lot full of cars and, beyond that, a busy road full of non stop traffic 24... more »

Golden Tide - Estoril, #Portugal

Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

Shades of Pink - Paço de Arcos, #Portugal

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” 
Audrey Hepburn

When I began to process this shot in Lightroom 5, all these pinkish shades started to emerge. Since I took a series of shots in the same location I checked the other pictures for the same unusual colouring. Nothing. Only in this one here. So, this is it. For a brief moment in time I witnessed a pink sunset. It must be love...

Moorish Fountain - Sintra, #Portugal

Sintra is one of the loveliest villages in Portugal. Praised by Lord Byron and full of romantic corners, buildings and palaces it's a fantastic place for the modern traveller exercise his/hers photographic skills. 
One of its famous icons, the Moorish Fountain is located on the main road between the train station and the Sintra National Palace. It belongs to the romantic-revivalist period and was built around 1922 by the master sculptor of Sintra, José da Fonseca. Its decoration is Arab in inspiration, with neo mudejar azulejos, painted plasterwork and sculptured decoration.

I took this shot a year ago on a beautiful and sunny Winter's day (not like this year's rainy and stormy Winter). Used my old Nikon D3200, 18mm, f/9, 1/100sec and ISO 400.

It's Raining Again - Parede, #Portugal

The weather forecast promised a sunny week. It seems it was wrong... again. This morning I was trying to shoot some new pictures of the seaside but it was pouring rain. I could not even leave the car.
So, this is as good as it gets...

Dramatic Sky - Belmonte, #Portugal

The severe weather this Winter brought me two major consequences:
1) I miss the Sun, the Summer and my last vacations here at my favourite spot (I even start to sound like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory)
2) It's been a while since I don't go out and take new pictures, so I'm left with the old stuff that was not processed. 
Therefore I found this one in the archives. It´s the entrance to the Belmonte Convent, now transformed into a lovely and charming Hotel. After taking a walk through the surrounding woods I witnessed this beautiful sky when I was returning to the hotel.
It was the aftermath of a quick Summer thunderstorm on its way to oblivion. More sunny days were enjoyed after this...
