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+

Varena, lago di Como

It's Friday today so it's time for my "regular" weekly post of one of my photos from Italy, shot last summer on our holidays around the great Italian lakes.

This is the wonderful village of Varenna at the east coast of Lago di Como.
We got there (all by chance) at exactly the right time of the day and really liked it so much that though it was quite far from where we stayed, we visited it twice.

This one was shot on our first visit, a few moments after we arrived. Glad to report that after I was done with photography we've had some yummy pizza at one of the trattorias  you see on the right :-)

Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso

This is the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso on Lago Maggiore in Italy.

I had visited it for the first time about ten years ago and last summer when we decided that we'd be at the area again, I knew I had to re-visit it.

Being together with the family on vacation doesn't leave you free to serve your photo "duties", so we happened to visit the place on a rather bad (for photography) hour of the day (too early) when the sun was behind the big rock face and most of it was dark.

Luckily there were other interesting sights too in the area and we didn't drove away, so a couple of hours later I got "permission" from the family and drove some 10 km's back to the hermitage to take among others this one, which I must say came out quite as I had imagined it earlier in the morning.

Stars and Stripes forever...

I suppose my American friends will appreciate this more...
This is Russian pianist Valery Kuleshov (whom I had never heard before but found him through this video and a little research I did afterwards )
 He plays (fantastically) my favorite "Stars and Stripes forever" by John Philip Sousa which was transcribed for piano by the great Vladimir Horowitz and you can find in so many interpretations today. The thing is that when Kuleshov wanted to play it back in the 80's, there was no published transcription available, so he had to make his own by listning to Horowitz's LPs! Anyone knowing just a bit about music must realize how difficult this is! Horowitz himself learned about the Russian's feat and after listening to Kuleshov's recordings of his own transcriptions he wrote to the young musician: “I was not only delighted byyo... more »

Lago di Piano, Italy

I took this photo at the small Lago di Piano in Italy, situated between the more famous  Lago di Lugano and Lago di Como and though I was quite disappointed by the look of it on my camera screen, it turned out pretty good after some careful processing. Actually, due to the huge dynamic range it's four bracketed shots merged manually in one in Photoshop.

You can read a quite detailed tutorial about how I did it (which is how I generally work at situations like this) here:

Supernova

I'm re-sharing this photo I shot a few months ago at the Olympic Complex of Athens, Greece, as this is my submission for the 3rd series  of the wonderful project  #PlusOneCollectionIII  run by +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee 

Despite the Sci-Fi appearence, these are some fancy flagpoles seen from the ground against a very dramatic sunset-lit sky.

To get a better perspective of the flagpoles arrangement have a look at the two following BTS photos (taken on another day):

Summer Storm

This is an old photo taken near the town of Brakel in Germany.

It was August of 2007 and I was driving on a national road near Brakel, when I noticed that the sky that was all clear and sunny up to that moment, started getting cloudy and darker.

OK no big deal you might say, but as the moments passed it was getting REALLY dark and threatening. I stopped the car and looking behind me I saw a big front of black clouds approaching my area. “Wow” I thought to myself “I’ve got to photograph this but I need a better scenery that just a national road…”

So I got into the car again and hurried driving some more, looking at the minor roads to the left and right of my road. Finally I found one to the right that seemed to go a little upwards and thought that it might give me some good view. Drove around 1 km in this, stopped and got out of thecar quickly... more »

I'll be back...

That was my first visit ever to Kalohori, right out of the city of Thessaloniki, northern Greece.
It's near the confluence of three major Greek rivers that form a large Delta and quite a few lagoons. In the past I've seen some wonderful photos from the place from many good Greek photographers and of course I wanted to visit for a long time but didn't have the chance as it is quite far from my home.

Finally I found the chance last December when we stayed with friends for a few days at the town of Katerini.
Unfortunately the weather was quite bad for most of our time there and didn't allow us to do a daily excursion all together as we had in mind, but that didn't prevent me from waking up too early on our last day, drive the 80km's to Kalohori into the night with constant rain and strong winds hitting the car and finally arrive... more »

Misty morning

I’m definitely not a bird shooter and I must admit I don’t get any particular pleasure by shooting or even seeing other people’s bird photos.
But sometimes (very rarely I reckon) things change and some birds look as if they carry a big sign on their forehead sayin’ “pleeeease shoot me!”

That was the case in that particular misty winter morning at the Paralia Katerini’s town (the coastal suburb of Katerini town) in northern Greece. Not much more to shoot due to the weather but these birds came out just right. I had to wait quite a bit till all four rocks where occupied by the birds (and take the right posture too) but eventually it all worked out OK. Too little pp and presto! The minimal is ready...

My 2014 "Italian Lakes" Calendar

Yes, it's this time of the year (I mean I'm ALWAYS late...) that I've finally managed to put together the 2014 edition of my Calendar.

For those that don't know the history behind these Calendars I'll say that from 2007 and on, I make a Calendar each year with some of the photos I shot during out summer holidays (usually somewhere around Europe)
This time we visited the area of the great northern Italian lakes so most photos are from there (though two of them are shot in Switzerland on some brief visits we've had there - remember that Laggo Maggiore and Lago di Lugano are shared between Italy and Switzerland)

Of course having completed it just now, I've missed the whole of January (making me consider to make one from February '14 to February '15 but then I thought that I'd screw up... more »

Monte Baldo, Italy



Some wonderful light and fast rolling clouds on the top of Monte Baldo in the provinces of Trentino and Verona, Italy

It's really easy to get up there, as long as you're willing to wait for endless hours in the huge queues to take the "Funivia Malcesine- Monte Baldo", at lest in the middle of the summer when I visited.

Forget all about it when you're on the top though...

Baia del Vento

This is the lovely Baia del Vento (bay of the wind) beach, on lake Garda, Italy, one of the best beaches on the lake to swim (of which I don't care too much being a Greek and spoilt by the Greek seas) but also one of the best to photograph (of which I care too much!)

We stayed at the nearby village of Puegnago for a week and I was lucky to discover this (very difficult to find) beach on the very first morning. Needless to say that I visited it every single morning as I saw there was lots of potential there.

Unfortunately on the first few days the weather was so good (for the rest of the tourists and bad for me) that every morning there was not a single bloody cloud on the sky! Thinking about it, I must have skipped one morning's outing as I woke up, saw the cloudless sky, thought "...hmmm, one of the same again" and went back to... more »

Let the good times roll

Last Saturday I drove to my fave decaying jetty in Aspropyrgos.

Have not been there for almost a year and though many times when the weather seemed fine I wanted to go, real life prevented me from doing so.

It was already late when I decided to go, so the best light was rather over by the time I got there, but that did not prevent me from shooting a couple of decent ones. Seems that this one is my fave of the bunch.

Tymfristos early morning view

This is the view from Tymfristos mountain in central Greece, right above the town of Karpenisi, to the south-east, towards the Vardousia and Giona mountains (with  a mean distance of 45km).
These two, along with Tymfristos are three of the highest mountains in central Greece, each one close to 2.500m/8200ft. 

I had been in the area for a corporate photo job, but despite my fatigue, my "artsy" self could not resist from getting up too early in case I'd shoot anything good. Not the fog I was hoping for, but at least this one didn't turn out bad...

Shot early one chilly November morning just a couple of km's away from my hotel.

Lochan an Ais, Scotland

I was looking for a photo to submit to a certain Challenge in flickr, themed "Wild Places" where everything in sight should be completely unspoiled by any human intervention.

Well, it was more difficult than I though (as seascapes were not allowed), so looking at various photos, shot at some wilderness, I remembered this one.

This is the little lake (as the name suggests) Lochan an Ais in the Scotland highlands, looking towards the popular Stac Pollaidh peak, as I photographed it one cold summer morning back in 2011.

Although I didn’t have to do any wild hike to get there (the main A835 road is right on my back), the view towards this way is completely unspoiled by any modern “additions”, making it my choise for the Challenge.

Supernova

I suppose at first sight this might look quite surreal but actually these are some flagpoles at the Olympic Complex of Athens, Greece, seen from the ground against a very dramatic sky right after the sunset.

I have tried to photograph them a few times in the past, always with medium or no success at all.  On this particular day I had noticed some great light and clarity, plus some wonderful clouds even from the morning, so when I got back at home in the afternoon I started thinking about any photo possibilities. Most of the afternoon passed without doing anything as half of me wanted to jump out and photograph whatever was in front of me and the other half was completely lazy after some hard day at work.

 As the sun was about to set my active half seemed to prevail against my lazy one, so I grabbed my bag and as I didn’t have much time left I decided tohea... more »

Lake Doxa twilight

Shot this back in 2011 at Doxa lake in Greece just before it got completely dark. I had forgot all about it but kinda stumbled on it and processed it again as I was looking for a photo to submit to a challenge in our friendly forum in Flickr. So I thought I might post it here too as I haven't been active for quite a long time.

Midday Rio

Midday is supposed to be the worst time for photography, especially with strong sunlight (as we usually have here in Greece) and this is mostly true.

But it can happen on a rare occasion, like when you have in front of you a wonderful structure like the Rio-Antirio bridge and some interesting waves in the sea, that even the midday harsh light cannot prevent you from capturing something which can be considered at least decent. Mind you this came almost as it is straight out of the camera, I had to do just a little bit of processing.

You can read a bit about the Rio-Antirio bridge, the world's longest multi span cable-suspended bridge here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio%E2%80%93Antirrio_bridge

Rio sunrise



The other day I stayed for a night at Rio, Greece (ok not the Rio you might expect...) and didn't miss the chance to do for the first time some "proper" photos of the famous Rio-Antirrio bridge, the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridge with a length of 2.880m (9.449ft), connecting Peloponnese with the mainland Greece.

Woke up before 6.00 and was there while it was still completely dark (thankfully sunrise is a bit late nowadays), so I had the chance to witness and shoot all the changing light from darkness to bright light. As it was getting brighter the sky was nothing special (too good for photography), so I think this one with the very dim blue light on the sky is my fave.

PS. When I arrived there, there were already a few fishermen around doing their thing. I was looking at them and they were looking at me and... more »

We were in Lago di Garda (Garda lake), Italy, during a very sunny and hot day of the past August, when suddenly the weather changed completely, as some really strong winds started blowing and some really dark clouds started gathering.

I thought it was a good time to go near the lake for some photography and by the time I got near Desenzano del Garda at the very south end of the lake, I was facing an unbelievable scene: The north of the lake was completely covered by threatening dark blue-ish clouds (you could tell that at some parts it was raining heavily), while the water in the foreground had that familiar bright turquoise Garda color, as the sun was still penetrating the much lighter clouds over our south part of the lake. As if that was not enough, the sky seemed to... more »

Got published big time (but no-one really knows...)

Today I was having a quick look at my dad's newspaper ("TA NEA" which if I'm not wrong is the largest circulation daily newspaper in Greece) and my eyes stopped on a photo that looked quite familiar. The photo - which you can see here:  http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k186/alexring_bucket/AthensBikeFestival2.jpg
was from last year's Athens Bike Festival, (where I happened to be the official photographer) and it certainly looked a lot like one I had shot back then.  

I looked at the photo credits and just saw the name of the organizers (which is not strange as in many cases you sell them the photos and they use them at wish without having to mention the photographer as you sell them all your rights too)

Mostly out of curiosity I checked my archives and saw that it was indeed a photo ofm... more »

Aspropyrgos Sunset

This is my submission for the second issue of the Plus One Magazine, a great photo collection made mostly by +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee
This time the theme is "Home" and you may ask what this has to do with it... Well, being proud to have "discovered" it and having been so many times there in the past, it felt a little strange when I re-visited it after quite a long time. Took me a while to realize that it felt like "home"...

Foggy morning

A few weeks ago I made a pause to my work frenzy and visited for 4 days the beautiful island of Corfu, Greece.

I didn't shoot many photos (at least not for my standards) and didn't regret it too, as I really needed some rest, but that didn't prevent me from waking up too early on all 4 mornings and doing some LE seascapes that I love so much (my idea of resting...) 

Shot this on the first morning near Gouvia, with the little Lazareto island and the Albanian mountains on the background, and though there were some nice sunrise colors (and I'm a know color guy too...), I really liked this kind of dreamy mono treatment.  Maybe I'll post some color ones sometime later.

In the meantime I'm wishing you all the best for the upcoming days, as I'll be away from tomorrow for my summer vacations (where I'll be more thanh... more »

OAKA Full Moon

Last Monday we had a special meet at OAKA (the  Olympic Complex of Athens).

  +John Kosmopoulos and his lovely wife Chrysoula visited Greece all the way from Toronto for the first time after seven years. Having already met John in Berlin (and knowing his love for architecture and abstracts) it was a great chance to meet them at OAKA, along with good friends and G+ celebrities +helen sotiriadis and +Julia Anna Gospodarou.  Unfortunately  +Aleka Iakovidou couldn't make it there, but she did make it next day when we met again for some nice food and chat. Our Canadian friends and the girls were already there when I arrived (late as ever...) but the midday light was too harsh for any good photos anyway so we chatted for quite a while  and had a stroll around.  

But as the sun started to set, nice things started to happen, beautiful colors inthe sky, ... more »

A lazy OAKA shot

Visited OAKA (the Athens Olympic Complex) a few days ago where we met with some good friends. Our "guest" was +John Kosmopoulos and his lovely wife Chrysoula all the way from Canada and the "hosts" were the talented ladies +helen sotiriadis and +Julia Anna Gospodarou  and myself.
After chatting quite a lot under the harsh midday sun, eventually we got into shooting some photos as the sun was going to set.

John is still in Greece, so I guess he's not posting anything anytime soon, but speed-queen +helen sotiriadis has already posted a few (see two of her superb photos here:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/108470782772821648496/posts/DbDksfd6nnW
...and here:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/108470782772821648496/posts/7jieZ9PenP8 )

As if that was not enough, queen-of-delay +Julia Anna Gospodarou just posted onetoo!! (... more »

Catching the last rays of the Sun

This one was shot on our way to Milos island, Greece, after the ship had sailed from Serifos island and the sun was about to set.

Seems the setting sun makes people do all kinds of silly stuff (all for the better for me whenever I manage to capture them...)
Shot this handeld as slow as I could, to make the (ultra slow and boring) ship appear as fast as possible.

Though I do love sea, I find ship travelling awfully boring and I would happily exchange it with some kind of beaming up from some  Scotty guy. Maybe the only thing I'd regret would be a few nice scenes I'd have missed, like the one below...

Super Moon rising

Had some time to spare yesterday, so we decided to head to Cape Sounion near Athens, Greece and try to shoot the full moon rising behind the famous Temple of Poseidon.

The whole trick was to know beforehand exactly where to position yourself to get the moon appear exactly behind the Temple (when you actually see it it's already too late to change position)

I had absolutely no modern electronic gadget to help me with positioning (and many people around who did, seemed confused and uncertain) but I had something better! My friend +helen sotiriadis and her friend (and Moon-shooting Master) +Anthony Ayiomamitis,  who called me at the right moment and informed me about the exact place where I had to stand to get the best.

By the time the first little piece of the moon appeared, people with huge lenses and big tripods who were standing... more »

Reine Power

Shot this on my last night at the famous Lofoten islands, Norway, back in 2010.
Despite looking a bit like afternoon, it was shot at almost 2:00 in the morning, lit by the midnight sun. A little earlier I had seen my first (and only so far) aurora borealis.

When I was shooting this I had in my mind my friend and looney cable-guy +peter moons. Later, I found out about the equally cable-looney +Natosha Davis, so this is shared for her #powerlinefriday

One of a kind

Whenever I post a flower photo, I keep saying that I'm not a flower photographer and I'm not especially attracted by them. Yet once in a while I find a scene were a single flower or a bunch of them tend to turn upside down all my theories and reasons about not photographing them...
I was really hit by the contrast between this lonely red poppy and the golden cobs so I had to capture the scene...
Shot at the beautiful countryside of Milos island, Greece. So no more flower photos from me (until next time...)

The Light Tunnel

Shot at the Munich airport during our stopover there while returning from Prague.

I'm quite ashamed to say that a photo taken IN the Munich airport maybe my fave photo from the Prague weekend (which proves nothing more than the fact that my Prague shots were mostly crap...)

Not an original idea as I had seen some similar shots in the past and was looking forward to do it myself. Not as easy as it seems, as you need a relatively empty stretch of these flat escalators, ND filters (since the ambient light is way too much to handle) and lots of patience.... Took me too many trials and errors to get a couple of good ones. I even tried a couple of selfies for crying out loud!! On the plus side the many hours of waiting to get aboard the next plane passed soooo easily!

Funny thing is that a young man from Austria saw me doing this, liked the... more »

Ranting...

G+ has to make me rant ALL the time...

I thought I had overcome the problem of uploading a photo in an album and not being able to share it directly (but having to have a copy of it in "photos from posts") by taking the said photo in Picasa Web Albums and putting it back to the original folder. This way you can keep all the comments and +1's.
The problem is that when you open the photo FROM INSIDE THE ALBUM you can see as thumbnails the rest of the photos of the album (and see them properly with the arrows)
BUT when you open the photo directly from the post, it takes you to a lightbox (if you see the URL you'll notice it's not the samer lightbox with the one that the photo appears in the album), where though it says in which album it is, it also says it's no.1of 1 (though the actual album has many more photos) and you cannot see... more »

Klima sunset

This is the village of Klima in Milos island, Greece, famous for it's "syrmata" (σύρματα), this kind of colorful "garages" specially made for the boats. The word derives from the verb "syro" (σύρω) meaning drag, as the fishermen used to drag their boats inside to protect them from the stormy weather. There are other places in Milos with "syrmata" too but this is rather the one with the most of them. Some are converted to modern appartments and are rented to the tourists. Well, staying in one of these doesn't sound too bad...

Hey I've got one of these too!!

This is the famous Shell-Haus in Berlin, shot during the great G+ Berlin Photowalk exactly (bar a few days) one year ago.
When we got back from Berlin and everybody started posting their photos, I got the feeling that each and every one had a great photo of the Shell-Haus, well… except me!

I (almost) got what I deserved because I got distracted on the way there and started shooting something else (effectively loosing my time as the results were too mediocre) and by the time I got to the Shell-Haus it was already a bit late. As a result I didn’t like the light, so instead of shooting the Haus I started fooling around shooting anything and everyone else…

Luckily I carry two cameras, so somewhere in the middle of my fooling around and as the others were still shooting the Haus, I thought “What the hell, let’s put onecamera on... more »
