Gailen Mapes72,604Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-02 11:40:22131001

Gailen Mapes68,403Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-10-02 10:23:56136000

Run we did!

The strikes kept getting closer and closer. This one is hitting near the viewpoint at Horseshoe in Page, Arizona. 

Photographers are a strange breed. We will deal with getting soaked, crawling into tiny canyons, ticks, poison oak.. you name it. What you see is a pretty cool picture. Just be happy you can see this from your computer, instead of running for cover like we did.

South of Waddell © +Barry Blanchard 

Looking south of Waddell Creek/Rancho Del Oso, Davenport, California. After much testing and practicing, I have finally got to a point I have been looking for: tack sharp focus, the tones I like, the right ND filter, the right ISO for the light I am dealing with.... all at hundreds of feet in the air with my DJI Global S1000 carefully holding my Canon 5D Mark iii. This is a single frame shot, and downsized for web use. My view comes in at just about 125 megs in Photoshop. I could have easily stitched some of the 37 images I was taking at a time, but hey: sometimes it's nice to just sit back and enjoy the view rather then spend a ton of time processing.

Sunset season has begun my Google+ friends. Be assured I/we will be out there, whenever possible. That's Highway One, of course.

From Wikipedia:

Greyhound Rock State Marine Conservation Area was established in September 2007 by the California Department of Fish & Game. It was one of 29 marine protected areas adopted during the first phase of the Marine Life Protection Act Initiative. The Marine Life Protection Act Initiative (or MLPAI) is a collaborative public process to create a statewide network of marine protected areas along the California coastline.

To fly like a bird, and capture that moment.

This is what I do. This is my calling. 

Over the next few months I will continue to perfect low altitude aerial photography. I know have a ways to go, and I know this is whats in my heart. 

Don't think the flowers are getting lonely. Its not their time to shine right now.

Pescadero North © +Barry Blanchard 

To the left: the Pacific. To the right: Pescadero Marsh.

*Located*at the confluence of Pescadero and Butano Creeks, the area known as Pescadero Marsh has for decades been a thriving habitat for both migratory and native wildlife. Besides being a refuge and nesting ground for wintering waterfowl, the Marsh is a critical spawning area and nursery for coho salmon, steelhead trout, tidewater goby, and many other threatened or endangered fish, amphibian, and reptile species.

Due to many causes, both natural and man-made, the health of Pescadero Marsh is deteriorating rapidly. Anoxic water conditions result in annual "die-offs" of hundreds of juvenile fish, crabs, and other species. As water levels fluctuate, many species are cut off from supportive habitat, and the entire eco-system degrades.

Anoxic water conditions result in annual "die-offs" of hundreds of juvenile fish, crabs, and other species. As water levels fluctuate, many species are cut off from supportive habitat, and the entire eco-system degrades.

Since 1998 concerned citizens and other wildlife agencies have repeatedly asked California State Parks to take immediate corrective action. The Parks department has moved to request further studies. Meanwhile, native species populations in the marsh have reached critically low levels. According to a study by Dr. Jerry Smith, San Jose State Professor, estimates in 1985 showed that 10,000 steelhead were rearing in the lagoon. As of 2008, 750 steelhead were counted in the same area.

Source: Wiki.

Continuing on with my Highway 1 Project, I present Pescadero Beach looking north. Today the winds were pretty heavy, but no match for my DHI S1000 holding my Canon 5D Mark iii. What you see here is the finished product of multiple full-frame images stitched together in Photoshop CC.

Bear in mind when I am working on these composite images, I am working with very large files. This one topped out at 765.8 megabytes. I then downsize them for web use. In other words, I can print my aerial shots in humungous, and I will.

Where The Sand Meets The Tracks © +Barry Blanchard 

Bonny Doon Beach, Santa Cruz, California. Shot with my +DJI S1000 holding a Canon 5D Mark iii. Composite of two images, stitched vertically.

I've always wanted to play with stitching images together, and that time has come. You may not know that I can shoot 37 full-frame images with a flick of a switch on my aerial setup, but I do. It goes like this:

A single button push sets the Zenmuse Gimbal into action. The camera starts by pointing forward.. click. Then it pans 30 degrees.. click.. another 30 degrees... click.. until it does a full 360. Then, like magic, it points 30 degrees down and does another 360. Then 60 degrees and another 360. But wait, that's not all. One more shutter click after the camera points directly down. Thirty seven images, from the air.. with a full sized DSLR. Sir +MichaelBo... more »

It's Not Your Fault © +Barry Blanchard 

Living here in California means living in earthquake country. I've always been fascinated by shifting tectonic plates and how they shape our landscape.

In the six grade I did my science fair project on the San Andreas fault and took second place. Buzz Aldrin himself handed me my medal, after he returned from the moon. What a proud moment for this guy.

About this picture:

In the distance you can see the peninsula that helped develop Año Nuevo island and state park. The fault has created it's own huge escarpment, and each year large machines dig all that pulverized and decomposed granite, and dump it along the ocean side of highway 1. That way the road doesn't get buried in the ever-moving gravel that will continue to rain down the hillside.

Scott Creek, Davenport, California. © +Barry Blanchard 

The first European land exploration of Alta California, the Spanish Portolà expedition, traveled along the coast on its way north, and again on the return. The party camped on the hill above the confluence of Scott Creek and Molino Creek - in sight of the beach - on October 19, 1769. On the return journey to San Diego, the party camped at the same location on November 20. Franciscan missionary Juan Crespi noted in his diary, "At the foot of the hill run two very copious streams, one to the right and the other to the left.

Scott Creek is named for Hiram Scott, who in 1852 bought part of the Rancho Agua Puerca y las Trancas. Scott, for whom Scotts Valley is also named, bought Rancho San Agustin (now Scotts Valley) in the same year.

As part of my never-ending Highway 1 project, I present Scott Creek. I took this one this morning after dropping my kid off at school. I am so proud of that girl!

Gear used: +DJI S900 UAS, Panasonic GH4.

Today the sun was a bit of a challenge for sure. With upwards of 20 minute fly times I take many pictures until I get the composition I am looking for. On top of my Futaba controller is a small LCD screen with a couple funny looking antennas. Its on that screen I get to see through the lens of my camera (thats about 300 feet above me), through the magic of a 5.8 Ghz radio transmitter. The transmitter running my UAS is 2.4 Ghz to prevent interference.

Once the clouds come back, I am onit.

And yes: snaking through my image is one of my favorite roads: Highway 1.

San Mateo Coastline © Barry Blanchard

North of Davenport California, and south of Pescadero lies a land of unending vistas. In the distance you can see the mountains above Monterey and Carmel.... and, if you look closely, in the center, below the waters horizon, you can see Año Nuevo island. This is one of the most studied places for the Northern Elephant Seal.
In my version of this picture I can zoom in and see the buildings on that little island.

I stated I would be doing more aerial stuff with +DJI, and I was not kidding. I will also be donating my high resolution images to NSGS each year so they can better study the effects our rising oceans will have on our pristine coastlines.

Can you see how the sun is falling on those sea-stacks just left of center?

The setting sun has a way of painting fantastic tones on our landscape. The only problem is that we don't get to always experience it as we are looking in a different direction.

How about a birds perspective?

The strikes kept getting closer and closer. This one is hitting near the viewpoint at Horseshoe in Page, Arizona. 

Photographers are a strange breed. We will deal with getting soaked, crawling into tiny canyons, ticks, poison oak.. you name it. What you see is a pretty cool picture. Just be happy you can see this from your computer, instead of running for cover like we did.

I have found I could see better once I figured out how to remove the obstacles in front of me. 

Strange thing about this is that those obstacles were not in front of me... they were inside me. Was this the result of some magicians trick? -Nope. It was just me learning to take responsibility for the darker parts in my heart. What's my secret? I just stopped trying to be somebody I'm not. I stopped trying to be right. I stopped hiding behind a facade. I started becoming me.... because I'm a rare gem, just like you.
