Dubie Bacino68,691Inspiring on Google+ Curated by @Opajdara (5th 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 engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------I keep meeting interesting people here, and making new friends, thanks to being shared in many public circles. Which is why I am now sharing two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: 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/ -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer.

Blair Kunkel5,687ATTENTION - Since my original snowball circle(Share Circle #1) circle grew so fast it reached over 2,000 members!  It has been brought to my attention that each time the circle is shared and added to YOUR circles, you are only able to add under 500 people. SO...to make sure that this circle of awesome people continues to grow, I have divided all 2,000 members into 7 other share circles(so far) and each of those share circles 2-7 are starting out with 400 members each. That will allow each circle to snowball up to 100 more members each.  Once each of those circles reach 500 members, I will create a new share circle...and so on and so on.--------------------------------------------------Welcome to SHARE CIRCLE #2--------------------------------------------------Want to be added to this SNOWBALL CIRCLE and increase the number or your followers?  To be added to this circle you must do these things in this order:1.  You must PLUS the post.2.  You must SHARE the post.3.  You must ADD the circle.(Remember, you can only have 5,000 people in your circles overall so make sure you have the room to add everyone in this circle first)4   And lastly, you must comment below when you have done the three above to let me know.Just want to remind you that in order for me to add you to this circle you MUST share this circle.  I always check the activity and I see who shares it and also +1's it too.

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+.

Some use telescopes, and others take wide angle views of the Milky Way. There are planetary astronomers, solar astronomers, and deep sky astronomers; and lots of timelapse videos. You'll see examples of beautiful astrophotography, and tips and tricks from the masters to help you improve your own abilities.Are you an astrophotographer?

André Distel4,019The People I FollowSo, here it is - my first circle share. I have a lot more people in my circles than I actually follow. With limited time and other social networking sites, I figure, I can only follow so many on a regular basis. The people in this circle are all top photographers and highly active on Google+ or simply interesting people.Don't worry if you are not in there. I have had probably not enough time to look at your stream in more detail with all the people I already follow. Just comment and let me know you are out there :). I always appreciate if people share circles with me in them, so I thought I might do that as well.Cheers,Andréwww.andredistel.com 2012-11-06 19:30:09213508CC G+

Don't forget, tonight you have a chance to witness a spectacular lunar eclipse when the moon turns 'red.' The show begins around 11pm PDT and lasts until 2:30am PDT. If you want to know more, check out this video from Michael Zeiler https://vimeo.com/89766307.

This image was taken during a lunar eclipse on December 10, 2011. This was a unique opportunity when the eclipsed moon was setting behind Mount Shasta. Definitely an experience I will never forget. 

Share with your friends and let them know about tonight's eclipse!

Stay warm and enjoy!

This gorgeous image comes from Thomas Piekunka (piekunka@sbcglobal.net) who captured this stunner during his second workshop with me. After Tom took his first workshop, I was blown away by how fast he excelled in his astrophotography. Within weeks he was capturing the Milky Way in the Eastern Sierra and I couldn't be happier to see him take these new skills to the next level. Congratulations Tom and looking forward to our next adventure!

Here's what Tom had to say about the workshop:

"I went back to Arches National Park last week on my second workshop with Brad. As expected, he went above and beyond to make sure we made the most out of the opportunities we had out in the field. Brad is a knowledgeable, gracious and patient instructor. He spent time with students who needed more help and offered supportive suggestions to more advanced participants. The fact that Brad... more »

There are endless opportunities here in Arches National Park. This image includes Zodiacal light and the Milky Way at Balanced Rock. Can you spot the person in the image?

We wrapped up our first 5 day, sold out workshop in Arches National Park & Canyonlands National Park. I'll be posting some of the participants images and testimonials in the coming days.

Our workshops are selling out and I'm guessing our Eastern Sierra Tour will fill up next! This extensive and magnificent region, where the desert meets the high granite mountains, was created by a series of ancient glaciers, massive earthquakes, and erupting volcanoes. The salty region of Mono Lake lies just below the Sierra Crest to the east. Eerie skeletons of petrified stones called tufa’s, lurk between the shadows and provokes comparisons to a lunar landscape.

Garden of Eden

Mother Nature created a spectacular display of light in the Garden of Eden, located in Arches National Park yesterday. This area was named the ‘Garden of Eden’ because early visitors thought they saw rock formations resembling Adam and Eve. In this image you can see Turret Arch, slightly covered by a shadow from a nearby rock formation and the La Sal Mountains in the distance.

We just wrapped up our first sold out workshop here in Joshua Tree National Park! Mother Nature showed up in the form of heavy wind and rain on the first night, and the group thought they would not have a chance to come away with some decent shots. We modified our schedule and held classroom instruction during the storm and was rewarded with the most clear, star-filled second night that I have ever seen here! It just goes to show how flexibility, perseverance, and patience is important when trying to shoot the night sky. A big thank you goes out to the entire group who kicked off our 2014 season!

This incredible stunner comes from Willem (https://www.facebook.com/wilhelmus14) who traveled all the way from the Netherlands to attend the workshop.

Don’t let the appearance of soft beige whiskers of the Teddy Bear Cholla fool you. These bristles are hardened spines, each tipped with a microscopic barb that can detach and imbed an intruder with the slightest touch. A deep appreciation of the value of wilderness character against a rare backdrop of dark skies is found on a gentle northwestern bajada of Joshua Tree’s Pinto Basin.

Our workshops in Joshua Tree National Park may have sold out, but there are still a few spaces left at other incredible destinations across the Western US! Visit http://bit.ly/gpworkshops for more info.

In the Dream

Teach me your mood,

Who climb each night, 
the ancient sky. 
Leaving on space no shade, no scars, 
no trace of age, no fear to die.

Here is one of our favorite images taken during 2013. Capturing the Milky Way and aurora borealis glowing over the seven mountain peaks of the Cascade Range was a miraculous moment. 

We appreciated your input and support during the year, and look forward to another adventurous year under the stars by sharing the beauty of the night. We have some interesting and unique plans in the works through a collaboration with an incredible company who is helping turn our vision into a reality. We are excited to share more about this partnership early next year and will reveal a new video for you to check out. 

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams, so cheers to a new year and many more chances to see the night!

Valley of Fire

As the center of the Milky Way is hidden by the sun, I focus my attention to some my favorite winter constellations, framing them with the unearthly landscape of Valley of Fire. Can you see Orion through the arch?

Moonlight in Valley of Fire

Finally, I am free to chase the stars. We're currently testing out our 'rig' and have been taking some practicing runs close to our home base in Las Vegas, NV. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can read more about our story here: http://goldpaintphotography.com/2013/11/21/chasing-stars/.

This was my first visit to VoF. I missed the silence of the desert and openness of the night sky it provides. VoF is the oldest state park in Nevada and was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. It covers an area of almost 42,000 acres. It derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of dinosaurs. It surely does not disappoint.

Conjunction of the Crescent Moon & Venus

Last night I headed out to Valley of Fire to capture the conjunction of the Crescent Moon & Venus. It was pretty cold out there, but well worth it. This image was taken roughly an hours drive outside of Las Vegas. You can actually see the light tower of the Luxor through the archway. Crazy how far that light reaches.

On another note, we have to thank you all for your kind words on our last post, "Chasing Stars"! It's difficult to explain how excited we are to start our next chapter in sharing the beauty of the night. Your continued support feeds our fire and makes us feel that maybe we're not 100% crazy for selling all our belongings to live on the road!

Chasing Stars

I’ve hinted for some time now, MAJOR CHANGES are in the works for us here at Goldpaint Photography and today, we have some exciting news to share with you!

WE ARE ALL IN! We’ve recently sold most everything we own and downsized our possessions to the bare minimum. It’s time to embrace the nomadic lifestyle and fully commit ourselves to reconnecting others with the night sky & raise awareness about the effects of light pollution. We’ve asked our favorite writer and friend Jeff Spry, to poetically describe our exciting new chapter. 

“It takes a brave dose of guts and grit to pick up your life and pack it into a 32-foot motorhome to chase down your dream, but that’s precisely what Brad Goldpaint and Marci Buckner have planned.

A Fair Trade

During the winter my attention turns toward the changes in the stars and planets in the sky. It’s a fair trade-off as cooler temperatures signal a cycling of the season.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. -Alan Watts

After hiking around Moccasin Lake for a few hours during the middle of the night, thankfully no bears or beavers, I decided to try for a star trails image. This spot was very close to where we had setup camp, but it was so dark I had a difficult time capturing detail in the foreground. After a few exposures and revising my comp, low and behold, the aurora borealis decided to make an appearance; I swear it follows me. 

In this image you can see the Aurora Borealis, Milky Way, Andromeda Galaxy, and a lone Perseid meteor over Moccasin Lake in Eagle Cap Wilderness.

2013 Landscape Astrophotography Workshop Season

2013 turned out to be an incredible workshop season! We gave over 60 of our excited students the 'night sky bug' during 11 separate night sky workshops. We can honestly say, we had a great time teaching all sorts of techniques, and sharing our love of the outdoors! Our 'Goldpaint Photography Alumni' are already taking their new skills to the next level and I couldn't be more proud to see that our mission is being passed on. "Promoting the preservation of our dark skies & inspiring exploration of our world."

2014 is right around the corner and we are working very hard to finalize our schedule so you can begin planning your next adventure. We're hoping to release our schedule in October and if you want to receive first notification, sign-up for our newsletter here: http://bit.ly/142TI2y. more »

Eagle Cap Wilderness: The Alps of Oregon

Note to self: when waiting until the last minute to heavily pack 8 days worth of food, water, and equipment to survive in the wilderness… don’t forget your shoes!

OK, I admit it, I forgot my shoes. Yep, pretty big rookie mistake. You would think with all the miles I have under my belt, I wouldn't forget one of the most crucial pieces of equipment. In my defense, I had a lot of things to remember and one item in particular was much more important than shoes. Read more about it here: http://bit.ly/16NEDFi.

Nightly Currents

Star trails over Glacier Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. 

It's no wonder animals travel and feed at night. The stars were so numerous they cast enough light to illuminate the foreground. However, this would not be considered light pollution, do you know why? 

We're putting the finishing touches on our blog article from this trip and will publish it next week. Stay tuned!

Please share if you enjoy starry nights!

We recently returned from an amazing 7 day backpacking trip through the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Believe it or not, this is how we like to spend our vacation time. Hiking countless miles in high elevations gives us time to enjoy each other in deep conversation, admire the blooming wildflowers, and witness clear, dark skies from our tent perched high on mountain tops. We did however, return with a few battle scars from blood thirsty mosquitos, intense sunshine, and blistering feet. In addition, we were starving for fresh produce (and a big fat cheeseburger) from eating only freeze-dried food for a week. Why do we do it you may ask? Because immersing ourselves in pristine nature heals our souls. No noise pollution, TV, cell phones, emails, or deadlines gave us plenty of time to just enjoy every moment to moment as each beautiful landscape... more »

Another EPIC workshop this weekend in the Cascade Range! It was so clear, you could make out details of the Milky Way with the naked eye. Flat out PERFECT (I hardly use that word) conditions. 

Only 4 spaces left in the last workshop we're offering this year. Visit http://goldpaintphotography.com/cascaderangesmithrockworkshop/ for more info.

Happy Friday!  

I thought I would post my first Milky Way photo I've ever taken under the tutelage of +Brad Goldpaint during last weekends workshop in the Bend area.  Fun times and so amazing to get to experience the stars this way.  I hope to do more night photography and get better at doing it!

Reflect to Infinity

Somewhere in the light is my personal universe. 

This is a single image (not a composite), with only a little noise reduction applied. It’s my new take on capturing reflections of the night sky and the results are stunning! We taught an enthusiastic group of folks in our workshop this holiday weekend and everybody had an amazing time.  We look forward to sharing our participant’s experiences and images very soon. 

How would you like to capture images like this? Our alumni are doing just that! Are you interested in learning more? We have only 4 spaces left for our last workshop September 6-8, 2013. Visit http://goldpaintphotography.com/cascaderangesmithrockworkshop/ for more info.

Happy 4th of July Google+ Fans from us at Goldpaint Photography! These are the only kind of fireworks we like to see at night! 

Trade fireworks for sunsets, noisemakers for birdsong, and explosions for silence. A dark sky would enable us all to experience natures fireworks.

Seven Peaks

Please share the love!

This weekend I labored through a brutal 18 mile trek over steep terrain, post holing through slippery snow fields, trudging into mosquito infested hatchery’s, while packing a full set of camera and camping equipment. However, I can honestly say this astonishing view was worth every step.  I was blessed with clear skies during the first few hours of the night, in addition to the aurora borealis making a glowing appearance. In this panoramic image, you can spot each of the seven peaks making up a portion of the Cascade Range. From left to right: Broken Top, South Sister (Charity), Middle Sister (Hope), North Sister (Faith), Mount Washington, Three Fingered Jack, and Mount Jefferson.
