Trever McGhee88,585Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Peter From69,694In The Spotlight | The Amateur Photographer's Circle – February 2014OK folks... Time to share the APC, February Edition now. It was amazing to see how much great talent there is out there. I am sorry that it took a few days longer than planned for me to get my act together and share this circle but I have had a major project in the works and compiling a circle such as the APC is not done in a heartbeat... :)So, make sure that you Plus this post, Reshare the circle, and tell me a few nice things in the comments before you add it to your own circles.A few remarks...If I did not add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share images in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the APC.I try to make my shared circles interesting and the main focus is as always; PHOTOGRAPHY.The Next CircleI will throw out the next announcement post in a couple of weeks time so make sure you visit my feed.Cheers my friends! Now add the circle!2014-02-12 15:01:41346144127167
Marco Favero720Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#sharedcircles #addcircle #sharedpubliccircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircles #circlesharing #publiccircle #findcircles #circlemeup #influencers #influencer #influence #influencermarketing #sharedcircle #circles #circlethis #circleyoushare #circle #socialmediamar2014-02-11 00:07:58479312

Gailen Mapes58,320Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-K - 17 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 Map2014-01-17 11:32:00104306

Peter From66,753The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S CIRCLE  –– Circle Post –– Part ONEFinally the time has come to share the first part of the APC. "The first part..?", you might ask. Yes, Part ONE since the announcement posts received some 800 comments and I manually check every person before I add him/her to the circle.Part TWO (the next 250 amateurs) will be shared in a couple of days. bare with me, it's quite time consuming to put these circles together. :)So here are the first 250 amateur photographers. You will find some very interesting feeds and some top notch photography in this circle, I guarantee you that. Add the circle and enjoy!WANT TO JOIN THE APC?For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago (this time, for example, the two announcement posts were shared over 1000 times!). Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateur photographer. This circle is NOT for bloggers, marketeers, SEO-ppl and their likes. If you do qualify, then read the guidelines on how to be a part of the APC.The GUIDELINES (yeah, you remember, huh?):1) Plus and comment this circle post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on this original circle post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet my requirements.2) Reshare this circle post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released (even if you are NOT in this first part of the circle). If you do not reshare, I won't add you to the next APC since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow photographers.3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is not the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Such comments will be deleted and/or reported. Thanks.Let's show some Google+ love and spread the word! :)Have fun!Release DateThis circle was released on Tuesday, November 26.Have a great week everybody and enjoy all the great photography here on Google+!2013-11-26 18:38:52250137126166
Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-05-08 10:33:27261224

Mt Hood and Sandy River

The natural beauty of the Mt Hood wilderness belies the hostile conditions faced by the pioneers traveling to Oregon during the 1800's. The view here encompasses the most treacherous stretch of the famous Oregon Trail and was known as Barlow Road.
From the early to mid-1830s (and particularly through the epoch years, 1846–1869) the Oregon Trail and its many offshoots were used by about 400,000 settlers, ranchers, farmers, miners, and businessmen and their families.
Barlow Road was a part of the Oregon Trail. The road was authorized by the Oregon Legislature in 1845, and by September 1846, it made its way around the south side of Mount Hood. This 80-to-110-mile road provided an alternative to the dangerous and expensive route that used rafts to transport wagons down the Columbia River.

Spirit Falls, Washington

The Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge gets most of the recognition for it's beautiful waterfalls but Washington should not be overlooked. Washington has many beauties but most are not quite as easy to get to as the roadside access the ones across the river afford. 

While +Kevin Childress was visiting we had the opportunity to venture over to this relatively obscure beauty. The steep talus slope makes the approach less than easy but it was well worth the effort. I've seen a few shots taken from just below and right of where this was taken from and I must say, those photographers are just a little more dedicated than I.

One from yesterdays outing. This one has Mt Hood as the central focal point with the east fork of Hood River in the foreground. The extremely dry winter we've has has rendered the flora even more lifeless than normal winters, even so there's no place I'd rather be!

An island we stopped and had lunch on while out exploring the bay around Paraty, Brazil. We had the whole island to ourselves except the 2 employees who worked there and Toninho, the captain of our boat. My buddy and I sat sipping our caipirinha's while the ladies swam in the warm water of the bay.

UFO over Mt Hood!

On the way back from the Columbia River Gorge today I looked over at Mt Hood and saw lenticular clouds forming all along the Cascades and knew I had to make the trip up the hill. This vantage point may look familiar to those who saw a recent post of mine from the same location, it is Jonsrud Viewpoint in Sandy, Oregon.

For Sacred Sunday I present........

A lovely church in Paraty, Brazil as seen from an approaching boat.

Capela de Nossa Senhora das Dores (Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows)[
This chapel dates back to 1800. It was used mostly by the rich women of society. Construction was overseen by the presiding priest, Father Antonio Xavier da Silva Braga. The building was later renovated in 1901. The image of Nossa Senhora da Piedade was stolen from this chapel. It was finally recovered in the 1990s, and now can be seen at the Museum of Sacred Art in the Capela de Santa Rita.

Navigating the cobblestone streets of Paraty, Brasil is quite a challenge, especially after a few caipirinha's.

Paraty is a beautiful colonial town that time has forgotten. It's surrounded by hundreds of small islands and secluded beaches.

One of my favorite waterfalls........ever!

Latourell Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It's tall, easily accessible, close to my house, very photogenic and just plain beautiful! Although Latourell is a popular waterfall, and during the summer you will likely see others around, I often have the whole place to myself if I go mid-week and off season. It's a great place to get your Zen on!

Finally got around to processing some photos I took back in April. The day after I took this I had out of town country guests and in the excitement I guess I forgot about this batch. 

This was taken in the Columbia River Gorge along Bridal Veil creek. If anyone knows the variety of these flowers please add it in the comments.

Wahkeena Creek. This creek originates at Wahkeena Springs which is just upstream from this location. The water flowing from the spring is surely cleaner than any you will find in a plastic bottle.

This afternoon at Multnomah Falls. It seems every time I have a day off the wind is howling, today was no exception. The falls are somewhat protected from the gorge wind but still pretty breezy. Crown Point, Just a few miles from this location, had wind gusts of 78 mph and sustained winds of almost 50 mph. Needless to say the high 30's temperatures sure felt cooler than it was suggesting.

I haven't had much time to shoot lately so decided to convert an old favorite to monochrome. This is a photo of Rooster Rock in the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side.
Rooster Rock was first described by Europeans by the explorers Lewis and Clark as their camping place on November 2, 1805 during their expedition out west.

Day 5 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . This is a photo of my friend Frank Murray and his band Petty Fever. Frank and the band were doing a celebration concert for winning the L.A. Music Awards in the category of Best Tribute Band. If you haven't figured it out by now he does an incredible rendition of Tom Petty.

I would like to thank +Ken Fowkes for challenging me, he has always been a great source of inspiration!

Not that it will be much of a challenge because I refer to him as the "Master of Monochrome" but I would like to see more of his latest creations, wadda ya say +Mark Tyler are you up to the challenge?

Day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  has me converting an old favorite of mine. I have a 16x20" color version of this hanging on my wall and as I was pondering my next subject I looked up and saw it hanging there. For those curious it is Mt Hood Oregon during the blue hour after sunset.

Thanks +Ken Fowkes for giving me the challenge! Hey +Craig Pifer are you game for the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  ? Consider yourself challenged!

Day #3 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  is about 30 minutes late, but hey it's still Monday somewhere right? This was taken back in April and originally processed with a reduced color pallet. The challenge caused me to remember to go back and try it as a true B&W like I had envisioned earlier.
 Like +Ken Fowkes will surely notice, this shot is stepping outside my normal comfort zone of Landscape photography and into something in many ways quite opposite.
 Instead of base ISO, small apertures and static subjects, shooting the concert was all about high ISO's, large apertures and constantly moving subjects. Needless to say it was a good learning experience!

In conclusion I would like to challenge +Tom Cooper to take the challenge.

Day #2 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . This was taken at Silver Falls State Park in the great state of Oregon. For those that saw my first post of the challenge this is from the same outing along the Trail of Ten Falls. I am thankful to have been challenged by the ever gracious and talented +Ken Fowkes, Thanks Ken!

I suppose I am supposed to nominate someone. Not like it will be much of a challenge because his B&W work is always awesome. But since I haven't seen him posting lately I hereby challenge +Kevin Childress! Wadda Ya say Kevin?

This is a photo of Lower South Falls located in the Silver Falls State Park of Oregon. I took this about a week or so ago but was motivated by +Ken Fowkes to try it out as a monochrome when he suggested I join the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

I'm hoping to get out and shoot tomorrow rain or shine, probably rain, maybe not "out".

Lower South Falls from behind.

Located inside Silver Falls State Park, the crown jewel of Oregon's state park system, Lower South Falls is only one of 10 waterfalls located along the aptly named Trail of Ten Falls.

Mushrooms

Eyeing the grass for mushrooms, you will find
A stone or stain, a dandelion puff
Deceive your eyes—their colour is enough
To plump the image out to mushroom size
And lead you through illusion to a rind
That's true—flint, fleck or feather. With no haste
Scent-out the earthy musk, the firm moist white,
And, played-with rather than deluded, waste
None of the sleights of seeing: taste the sight
You gaze unsure of—a resemblance, too,
Is real and all its likes and links stay true
To the weft of seeing. You, to begin with,
May be taken in, taken beyond, that is,
This place of chiaroscuro that seemed clear,
For realer than a myth of clarities
Are the meanings that you read and are not there:
Soon, in the twilight coolness, you will come
To the circle that you seek and, one by one,

Your way a winding where the rest lead on
Like stepping stones across a grass of water.

I've been kinda quiet around here lately. Any reason why would simply be an excuse, reality is I've just been kinda lazy lately. 

Anyhow, I came across this scene as we were driving home from camping a few weeks ago. I saw them as I was driving over a bridge that crossed this small river near the Oregon coast. Of course I had to turn around and capture the setting!

Vista House sitting guard over the Columbia River Gorge

I took this as a test shot for a planned moonrise over the Vista House. Unfortunately timing a full moon to rise in a spot over the vista house isn't easy. Factor in the fact that we have cloud cover for at least half the year and it might be awhile before I can actually pull this off! My next opportunity won't be until October!
