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 Mapes74,883Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera G-H - 5 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.2015-01-05 11:55:59152001

The Shot I Fell Off the Bridge For... Truckee, California
Remember this image I posted the other day: http://bit.ly/15uwVUh?

Well, a little later that same evening, I snowshoed out a ways and looked back. Oh my. It was a red hot mackerel sky! And it was changing fast... 

I set up my tripod quickly, stepped around to adjust settings and fell over backwards off the bridge I was standing on into the slushy creek below. The snow was so deep I totally misjudged where the edge of the bridge was! Then the snow was so deep, I couldn't get out... and the damn sunset was... setting! ACK!

After a few tries, I finally scrambled out like a dog on all fours over to my tripod, reached up and hit the shutter release. Whew! Just caught the end of the light show. This wasn't even the peak of it... that happened while I was lying on my back in the ditch. Ha!

Fly to the Light... Santa Cruz, California
See the light. Take aim.
Then fly.
And don't stop until it fills you and illuminates your everything.

This is a new one on my website... I'm sharing a sneak peak! 
So much "new" about to come alive... makes me wish I could fly like a bird!

Patience, New Stuff & Mama Birds
What do all these have in common? Well now, THAT'S the $64,000 question, isn't it? 

I 'splain the whole story AND share a bunch of news over on my hot bliggety-blog: http://bit.ly/1BShqDC. 

The long and short is that I thought I knew what patience is... until I met a mama Grib. (that's a bird).  I mean, I've spent a lifetime learning this highly unnatural act! But until I watched this mama-in-the-making surpass the laws of patience without even knowing what the outcome would be... my idea of patience was sadly anemic.

I have renewed focus and a new set of patience chops now. It relies on a source bigger than me, from the inside out. It doesn't waver. (at least not for long) And it all came from a little bird sitting on a floating nest for what seemed like an eternity, outcome uncertain.

Lit Up... Eastern Sierras, California
For a time, they were turned on 24/7.
Like enthusiasm that never sleeps.
Lit up from within. Reaching for the heavens.
"Fall" is an such an odd name for that.
---------------------------------------------------
Some time ago, I posted this image: http://bit.ly/1EwMgzC.
At the time, I didn't know what McGee Creek in the Eastern Sierras was all about.

This past autumn, the hubs and I hiked up into this incredible wonderland and didn't want to leave! (see how I did that... leave...chortle). We only intended to visit once... but ended up doing a late afternoon AND an early morning shoot-out in this glorious canyon. Then topped it off with a 7 mile hike to an ÜBER awesome lake wayyyy up in there. 

Yeah. Planet Earth was a good choice, wasn't it?

Before & After... from my blog today: http://bit.ly/1CNjiKV. 

Over there on my bliggity-blog, I share new of yet another new project coming to life. This is one I'm creating with +Tanya Wallis  [rubs hands together with conspiratorial glee] and it's just setting a wee little toe into the light of day. Not in the blazing spotlight of prime time quite yet... but it's humming along and rounding the final turn, heading for home! We're so stoked, had to share... 

So's you have SOME idea what we're on about, here's a little before/after... along with the QuadColored textures/hues I used in the process. 

You can get the whole story over on my blog: http://bit.ly/1CNjiKV along with a bunch of other cool B/A's.

More on this, as it happens!

The Light Show Next Door... Truckee, California
Sometimes the best thing to do is pull up and chair and let the Heavens bring the light show to you. It always does, if you let it. :)

I love sharing what my some of my unbelievably talented friends create...

 +Frank Doorhof is a master at fashion and portrait photography - and is the über Grand Master at his use of lighting and light meters. In fact, he just made a video tutorial about it this very thing, which you can read his post (below) to learn more about, how to order and all that good stuff. 

I can tell you this: if you've EVER wanted to get better at studio shooting, lighting, fashion photography - all that wizardy stuff - this may be your year! I've watched Frank in action at trade shows... and man, he's got it down to a science and knows how to explain is SO well. Check it out! And if you shoot something amazing using his techniques... show us!! I wanna see... ;))

The trailer for our instructional video "Mastering the model shoot : the light meter"

In this 70+ minute video you will get all the ins and outs about the use of the light meter, in digital photography without a doubt one of the most under estimated tools to speed up your workflow and increase the number of correct exposures.

In the video you will learn a lot about the use of the meter and get some tips for your model shoots.

Topics include :
Reading the meter, where to point, how to calibrate, triggering methods, alternatives, how to read the meter, how to setup the meter, using a perfect white background, using incident vs reflective, keeping details in blacks, using light in light setups, using a special effect with white backgrounds, controlling your contrast, the histogram vs the light meter, in camera vs the meter, from day to night in a "flash", using the meter in the studio but also outside, how to meter the sky, how does the camera and the meter work together, AV and TV modes in the meter, and much much more.....

You can order the video now from www.frankdoorhof.com___I love sharing what my some of my unbelievably talented friends create...

The Delicacy of Age... Truckee, California
Life is fleeting, fragile, full and fabulous.
The young and pliable may not yet realize
that when their spring has sprung,
the delicacy of age will write an exquisite story in the finest of detail upon them, visible from the stars in the heavens above. 
The point of it all: Live well. Age delicately. 
-------------------------------------------------
When my husband gave me my first full-on DSLR (after 20 some-odd years of "less than" cameras), I disappeared for days. I had to learn the gear, remember what I once knew, forget what no longer mattered anymore.

I began with what I loved most about photography; its ability to capture intimacy, breathlessness, the feeling of hovering in a  moment right before it's shattered forever. Of discovering line, shadow, light, the pureness of design found inna... more »

I began with what I loved most about photography; its ability to capture intimacy, breathlessness, the feeling of hovering in a  moment right before it's shattered forever. Of discovering line, shadow, light, the pureness of design found in nature, never duplicated quite as expertly by any man. 

This simple shot has ended up being a sort of icon of all that for me... but more, for the moment when a piece of my soul returned and changed my life forever.

It's true: Life is light.

I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for lines and shapes and the way light falls across them in certain conditions to create designs all their own, like some artistic overlay.

It's like the one time you can actually see the gesture of light, caressing the very thing it touches. I love gentle caresses of light. sigh.

Cloaked... Floriston, California
Cloaked in icy ermine, undetectable in a world of winter white,
the twins made their way to the castle doors, behind which -
unsuspecting rulers plotted takeover.
The notion of failure never occurred to their tiny little ruler minds.
By the end of the day, it would.

Winter, Where Art Thou?
On my blog today: http://bit.ly/1xVKabw, I can't help musing on the things I love about winter in the mountains... and how much I miss it! 
(I even share a video of me running my beloved snowblower after what used to be a typical storm.)

Now: nuttin' honey. No snow on the ground where I live. Zip. Nada. I had to go back to last April for this image, taken at 7000 feet. 

If anybody's sick of their wintery white stuff... send to California!!

The Line Up... Eastern Sierras, California
I don't know what it is about trees in a row, but I find them completely irresistible. Especially when they go all architectural-looking in winter with a little snow mixed in on the mountains for contrast. It's just all lines, shadows and light... leaving so much up to the imagination.

"Wistfully Yours, The Bridge"... Tiburon, California.
Looking across water always makes me quiet. Sometimes wistful, other times just thoughtful and relaxed. Anytime I'm looking at iconic sights around the Bay Area, I remember my mother, great aunts, both grandmothers... all of whom made lives in San Francisco.

There were the countless times I dove to the floor and closed my eyes going over this same Golden Gate Bridge (I got it in my head that it was about to drop into the drink from some reason. Kids!).
Having to wear dresses and white gloves anytime we went to the city. I guess it was an 'era' thing.

My great aunt owned the salon at the St. Francis Hotel back in the day. I can still remember the excitement of going to visit her, seeing her clients under hair dryers, the smell of permanent solution, the smiles everyone had for us when we arrived. I can... more »

I can still remember the excitement of going to visit her, seeing her clients under hair dryers, the smell of permanent solution, the smiles everyone had for us when we arrived. I can see bits and pieces of the original fabulous old marble and architecture still there when I visit.

Anyhoo, letting this view be monochrome (which is what TV's were when I was little) and layered with texture... makes it feel a bit like the 78 LP's I still remember so well as we sang songs and listened to the most amazing stores I'd ever heard, all wide eyed and full of of possibilities.

Princess Dahlia
For a snippet of time, she lived on her family's estate in Butchart Gardens, Victoria, B.C. In the bloom of her youth, Princess Dahlia was the envy of all who happened by.

She favored the front and center position, greeting visitors who arrived in bermuda shorts from the land of "Oooo and Aaahhh", who regularly expressed their delight at her extraordinary beauty and countenance. She loved it when they expressed their delight.

The snippet of time passed by quickly however, as snippets of time are wont to do. The breathtakingness that was Princess Dahlia waned and faded, and eventually passed completely.

Yet she did live on... in an online photo gallery owned by one of the visitors from the land of "Oooo and Aaahhhh". Who, although she didn't wear bermuda shorts, Oooh'd and Aaahhh'd with the best of them as she... more »

Does figuring out little things stop you in your tracks?"
Sure does me! Trying to figure out what should be simple, but someone made complicated is the bane of my life and the biggest contributor to SUCKYDOM I've got going. 

Y'know who helps me with this almost more than anyone? That would be +Nicole S. Young and her no-nonsense, awesome way of simplifying just about everything!  It occurred to me how often she's done that for me... and did so again with this recent article of hers about posting Instagram photos directly to Twitter via IFTT... that I ended up writing a blog post about her... the joy of keeping things simple.. and NON-SUCKYDOM!.

Click below, or catch it here: http://bit.ly/1IrwuGJ.

Manhattan Skyline... NYC, NY

On my blog today: http://bit.ly/1Fcn71o.

I've been highlighting my amazing 6 Level 20 grads in +The Arcanum... and today, meet Tanya Wallis, Grand Librarian. Oh... and Creatologist and Chief Imagination and Morale Officer, Goddess of the People, The Champion of Comic Relief... to list a few of her own self-proclaimed titles. Heehee. 

I think you'll be inspired by these people's stories; that's why I'm writing them. It's not about whether or not you join ANY group, quite frankly. My whole point really is that it's all about focusing on what you're most passionate about, developing it, not giving up... and sharing it with the world.

Hope you enjoy! :D

You can see them all on my blog (click below).

If creating your own holiday bundle of awesome photo enhancement tools floats your boat, you can do it AND get rewards for it! Yup, love that too. Check it all out here: http://goo.gl/zOIdso.

Thank you Ibarionex!
You're a peach beyond compare. :D

Glimpse of Glory... Eastern Sierras, California
I think glimpses of Glory - whatever kind of glory that floats your boat - are vital to keep around us all the time! What we spend the most time feeling and thinking about... that's what we create. It's pretty much proven at this point.

One of the traditional roles of Art is to inform and inspire. It's not frivolous, it's not an impact to be taken lightly.  And it's a conversation happening over on my blog today! You're welcome to join in... ;)

Corded by Tahoe... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
Filling up on blues, greens and warms

Panoramically Yours, Donner Lake
I took this pano of Donner Lake with my iPhone 6+ on my way thru town yesterday...when the light and lake were playing a surreal game of "shoot me, I'm yours!"

I had my DSLR gear with me too of course, and it took me about 3 hours to make a half hour drive! New snow, awesome skies will do that to a girl. ;))

The Secretary... San Diego, California
Her boss was very tall.
Not a day went by that she didn't have to drastically crane her neck to look him in the eye.
-----------------------------------------
The Secretary Bird is so-named because those feathers in their head do so resemble an array of pens stuck in ladies' MadMen 60's era poofy-doo hair styles. At least that's what I decided after watching them for awhile. Other theories involve likewise decked 19th-century Europeans secretaries with quill pens tucked behind their ears. You get the drift.
 
I kinda fell in love with them! 

Random trivia: They're +Laurie Rubin's favorite bird. You should wander over to her profile and casually mention that. She'll think you're GENIUS!!! hehheh.

Melting Pools... Sierra Nevada Mountains, California
This looks all peaceful and springlike, because it WAS all peaceful and springlike back in April when I took this!

But today... a ginormous winter storm blows in, bearing great precipitation, for which we are so grateful here in California, even if we're bracing ourselves. In the mountains where I live, the storm will pack 120 mph winds over the ridge tops (that's 193 kmh!), a little over half that in valleys and lower elevations, plus rain at first... then a few feet of snow. Down at lower elevations... something like 5 inches of rain is expected. 

I was supposed to travel today, but I'm staying home, battening down the hatches and surfing this sucker out! 

It'll be our first SERIOUS snowfall up here in the Sierras. And it'll make the snow in this photo look pale. Paler. You know.L... more »

It'll be our first SERIOUS snowfall up here in the Sierras. And it'll make the snow in this photo look pale. Paler. You know. Listening to the weather news last night, I even learned about another type of storm phenomenon... one that apparently happens every 200 years. Apparently we're about due. It's called an Arkstorm. Google it. Yikes! This one apparently is NOT that, but dayum, ya learn some new, weird thing every day.  

In any case, stay safe, my flatlander friends! (That's what we call people who live at lower elevations.) See you on the flip side!
