Gailen Mapes40,341 Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R-S - 5 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name.

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting JAugust 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 circle2013-08-19 11:01:4827713512CC G+

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I returned from my trip to the Pacific Northwest late on Friday night and so I'm just starting to go through my photos. 

This is one of my favorites so far. It was taken during an intense rain storm in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. It was wet, but it was magical. Let me know what you think of this one.

"Surviving the Chaos" (View Large)

On this day the rain was pouring down and the waterfalls were working overtime. In the midst of the deluge I noticed this one tree hanging on as it was pelted by rain and surrounded by rushing water on every side. Sometimes life feels a lot like this, but somehow if we don't give in to the pressure our lives can take on an unexpected sense of beauty.

(As always, feel free to share.)

Well, after a rough night sleep I peeked out the window at about 5:30 this morning and saw that despite thick rain clouds there was a small crack on the eastern horizon. I jumped out of bed, put some clothes on and ran out the door. I arrived at the Beaver Meadows entrance station in Rocky Mountain National Park unsure of where the action would happen, so I just stayed right there. Then a couple of minutes later I saw one red beam develop over the park. Slowly it grew to be a full rainbow while dark storm clouds moved in behind it. It was a very dramatic and beautiful start to the day. Remember that sometimes the darkest and stormiest times produce the most brilliant moments of beauty.

Many of us who have been to Rocky Mountain National Park have seen Ypsilon Mountain towering over Horseshoe Park, but how many of us have seen it from the north side? This view is perhaps even more majestic. I think Ypsilon is one of the most beautiful mountains in Rocky and never more so than when bathed in the warm light of the morning or in this case evening.

Good morning. I hope you all had a good weekend. Here's a new view of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park taken near Trail Ridge Road. The aroma of all those flowers is simply incredible. It is like the most delicious perfume one could imagine.

This morning I spent sunrise up on Trail Ridge Road. It was quite brisk with temps in the 40s and the wind blowing about 15mph. I found myself wearing my winter hat, gloves, and down jacket. Now, that's the perfect way to begin a summer day. The flowers up there are beautiful and made a perfect foreground for Longs Peak.

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a title for this one?

Last night I ran up to the top of Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park for sunset. There was heavy smoke filling the skies from wildfires in the far north of Canada which had blown down. It was so thick that I couldn't even see Longs Peak from up there! However, smoke makes for colorful sunsets and so I made sure to watch the sun set behind the Never Summer Mountains as it lit up tundra wildflowers.

I'm sorry that I haven't posted much at all lately. Life has been challenging and I haven't really had the energy to get out much. Last night however I did go out for sunset in Rocky Mountain National Park and it was quite dramatic with beautiful clouds and light.

While there are no magical properties in the water itself, such exquisite beauty and the roaring sound of rushing water somehow brings a sense of healing into our trouble hearts, allowing us to perceive that in beauty is the answer to life.

We are now in the midst of spring here in Rocky Mountain National Park. While the rest of the country is enjoying summer, the flowers here are just beginning to bloom after a long winter. This morning the wild iris filled the valley at sunrise, promising a wonderful new day.

Longs Peak with its unusual flat top is the tallest mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park. Towering over all other peaks in the area it can be seen from Denver to Fort Collins as well as from all over the park. On this evening it was playing hide and seek with me, disappearing for 5 or 10 minutes and then briefly appearing again as thick clouds drifted by.

Night can often be the most beautiful of times though the focus changes. Instead of paying attention to those things that directly surround us, we become aware of our place in this spectacular universe full of beauty that extends far beyond our wildest imagination.

Have you ever visited Panther Creek Falls in Washington state? This is one of those places I will need to return to. On this day, the rain was falling hard, the falls were roaring and a thick mist filled the air. It was nearly impossible to keep the lens dry, but being in the midst of all that powerful water was invigorating.

As I've said many times, this is one of the most wonderful times of year to be in Rocky Mountain National Park. The air is clear and fresh, snow on the peaks and bright green in the valleys. I almost wish I could push the pause button. 

This morning I was thinking about how the United States since its inception has had this unusual focus on the pursuit of happiness and yet this pursuit so often ends in emptiness. I think it is a strange but true paradox that when one pursues pleasure or happiness neither result, but when we open our eyes with wonder and thankfulness at all the goodness that already surrounds us, contentment, happiness, pleasure and gratefulness follow.

I just walked in the door from a morning in the park. I hiked up to a lake near the base of Notchtop Mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park and was treated to a beautiful sunrise. Although the snow is melting fast, there is still quite a bit of snow on this trail and I was glad that I had brought appropriate equipment. 

As I sat there and soaked in the beautiful scene, I reveled in the magnificent stillness of the moment. Although there were birds chirping and flying from tree to tree, there was a quietness to this place that is hard to describe. It was the type of deep peace that moves through the valley and right into your soul.

I still have lots of Pacific Northwest photos I haven't posted, so I'll try to post one each afternoon if I get a chance. Here's one from southern Washington. Notice the tree in the middle.

Here's one that is fresh out of the camera. This morning was one of those beautiful blue sky days up here in the mountains. Unfortunately, clear skies are what most landscape photographers dread, as such conditions are not conducive to photography. So, I decided to find something different. 

I found these trees in Horseshoe Park and waited until the first light just hit them. It still hadn't reached the hill and trees behind them, leaving them in the shadows. Their fresh green foliage glowed in the warm light as birds sang and flew from branch to branch, celebrating the new day. Just behind these trees, out of sight of the camera, elk with shiny fresh coats and velvet covered antlers were running through the meadow.

I found a few free minutes today and so I'm continuing to work my way through my recent trip to Oregon. Here's another one, this one from Silver Falls State Park. If you look very closely, you may see a few people back behind the waterfall.

Since today is the last day of May, I figure I should post this photo before the month is over. This is from a sunset up on Trail Ridge Road earlier this week during its first night opening. 

Hope you all have a great Saturday!

Sometimes the sky itself is so beautiful during sunrise or sunset that nothing else needs to be included. These clouds were hovering over Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park at sunset earlier this week.

Last night I spent sunset up on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. This was the first day this year that the road has been open late enough to shoot sunset. There was some beautiful light in the west and I was able to capture this view from Medicine Bow Curve. 

There's a lot of snow up on TRR right now. I hope you can get up there to see it!

Good morning! Here's what the view from Dream Lake looked like at sunrise this morning. It's another perfect day up here in Rocky Mountain National Park. What the photos are unable to convey are the wonderful smells of spring as well as the sound of all the singing birds and running water. It's a great time to be here!

As I walked through the thick woods of Redwood National Park I came across this old road which used to be the main thoroughfare through this area of the park. It provided a delightful walk through this lush green world. I followed it for about an hour and really didn't want to turn around as the desire to see what was around the next bend kept pulling me onward.

Spring in Redwood National Park in northern California is magical. As I stepped onto the trail for my first time, I was in awe. The trees themselves were indescribable and the aroma of the rhododendrons simply made the entire experience otherworldly.

"Surviving the Chaos" (View Large)

On this day the rain was pouring down and the waterfalls were working overtime. In the midst of the deluge I noticed this one tree hanging on as it was pelted by rain and surrounded by rushing water on every side. Sometimes life feels a lot like this, but somehow if we don't give in to the pressure our lives can take on an unexpected sense of beauty.

There is something magical about moving water that puts me into a state of peaceful reflection. I love to sit alongside a stream or near a waterfall to simply sit and think about the important things of life. Somehow, being removed from the man-made world allows us to recalibrate and to refocus. Here we can consider who we are, why we are here and how we should live. 

I shot this photo this past Friday in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. As always, please feel free to share this post.

"A beautiful thing, though simple in its immediate presence, always gives us a sense of depth below depth, almost an innocent wild vertigo as one falls through its levels." - Frederick Turner

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I returned from my trip to the Pacific Northwest late on Friday night and so I'm just starting to go through my photos. 

This is one of my favorites so far. It was taken during an intense rain storm in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. It was wet, but it was magical. Let me know what you think of this one.

Here's an older photo that I've never processed or really even looked at. It is one of those peaceful backcountry scenes that you can find throughout the national park. This is a little cascade and pond about 5 miles northwest of the Lawn Lake Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. 2008 © Erik Stensland

Ruby's Peace

This morning as I race from one thing to another, my brain keeps wandering off to daydream about crashing waves and sea scented air. There is something healing and restoring about such places. The sound of water, whether in the ocean, the edge of a lake or beside a gurgling stream always fills me with a sense of peace and healing.

Spring in Rocky Mountain National Park is a very special time of year. There is still snow on the peaks above but down below everything else is coming to life.

These are the ruins of Llanthony Priory in Wales in the United Kingdom. I was able to spend an evening with my brother-in-law enjoying the ruins and the beautiful night sky.

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life." – John Muir

The photo is of Lake Bierstadt in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Today, I find myself dreaming of spending some time in a beautiful rainforest in the Pacific Northwest. Here's a shot from my last trip out there. This was in Olympic National Park during the autumn.

I love spending sunset on beautiful beaches in the Pacific Northwest. This is Ruby Beach in Olympic National Park, just a short while after sunset.

Have you ever spent a night in the desert? The silence is amazing and if you are far enough away from city lights the stars shine ever so brightly. On this recent night, my son and I enjoyed a warm peaceful evening far from the madding crowd. In this photo the moon peers over a sandstone arch. 2014 ⓒ Erik Stensland

In 2008, I spent a week in the Highlands of Scotland with two friends from Estes Park. The winds howled and it rained hard almost the entire week, but it was still an amazingly beautiful place to visit. The hardest part was keeping the camera lens dry. This is Buachaille Etive Mòr at the head of the Glen Etive. I'm dreaming of taking a trip back there one day.

Last autumn I spent some time down at White Sands National Park in New Mexico. It was an amazing place, especially at night when it was lit by the moon. I'm already dreaming of taking another trip back here. Have you ever spent any time there?
