Gailen Mapes67,546Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 8 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 +2014-09-08 10:04:40144758

Gailen Mapes62,283Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  M - 8 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 Mapes2014-04-08 10:52:561412211

Time for a rest

After a monster week of writing my third novel, it's time to relax for the rest of this Friday. Red wine and pasta evening, with some crap TV.

Hope you all have a relaxing weekend.

Introducing the Photographer #6

Name: Carole Deschuymere
Photography area: Wildlife

What I love about his/her work:
Another female photographer producing the goods in a male dominated photographic genre.

Scanning through Carole's 500px account, you can get a quick feel for someone in love with the beauty and wild energy of Africa. As  someone who was born there, it is always great for me to see how others view the great wild continent and she clearly has a great eye for its residents.

Her portfolios across her various sites, show her love of cats and all the bigger mammals, although I did find a few galleries in praise of the smaller stuff. Below are all the major sites I could find on the web, so show her some love and support with a follow and a like, your streams will be blessed with great images

Hunting at Sunset - Bat-eared Fox

I have a very soft spot for these little chaps. With their oversized ears, they trot along, nose to the ground, listening for insects scratching below the surface or in nearby bushes.

Stumbled upon this one late in the afternoon as I was making my way back to camp. He was actually on the other side of the vehicle, so was front lit. I took a few images and was about to leave, when he cross behind me and carried on hunting. I do love shooting into the sun, so grabbed the chance.

Tree Sunset

A few hundred meters from the main Satara Camp gate. I had just got back from a great day out in the park and was killing time until the gate closed for the night.

It's difficult to get these types of photos from within the camp due to the fences, so you have to risk the wrath of the gatekeeper and stay out until the last minute.

Wilbur Smith

Always love reading interviews with this man. I read so many of his books as I grew up it was hard not to be influenced by him. Not everyone's cup of tea, but then again, which author is.

His love of storytelling about Africa was one of the reasons I started writing.

Wonderful sighting and great work by +Juan Carlos Vindas 

Not my work. Please leave comments on Juan's stream

Finding a margay before breakfast is something that don´t happen very often in the life of a nature photographer! That was a nice warm morning in the rain forest of northern Costa Rica when a strike of good luck found me and the group I was leading that morning while we were trying to find a rufous-tailed jacamar! Not only we were rewarded with a fantastic sighing but also the dark light started to give way to the nice filtered light that is so common in the tropics. 
I used a Mark IV Canon camera for this shot and dispite its limits when a high ISO is employed, it performed pretty well at ISO1600, I has shooting hand held as the terrain was quite irregular and a tripod would just had make me loose the opportunity that had just arise in front of us!

Every now and again I get a little homesick for the place of my birth. Then I head over to my Lightroom catalogue, and whisk though some of my Africa photos. It stems the longing for a while.


It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had - Toto, Africa

Thanks Folks

Coot Ballet

I do love it when you get the mixture of perfect lighting, co-operative subject and rival males who taunt the male you are focussed on.

Although Coots are common species, they still make for challenging photography. I have plenty of creative blurred image images of coots doing this. So I was happy to get one that was a little more stopped in motion.

Introducing the Photographer # 5

Name: Piper MacKay
Photography area: Wildlife and Cultural Documentary

What I love about her work:
Everything. Fast becoming one of my favourite female wildlife photographers out there, you also cannot look past the wonderful portraits she does every year with some of local African tribes she visits.  

Her work tells of wondrous places and the story that accompanies each image, allows people who have never travelled to Africa, to get a feel of the continents soul.  Long may her travels continue.

Piper also leads tours to my home continent, so have a look at her website for all the latest offers.

Her work tells of wondrous places and the story that accompanies each image, allows people who have never travelled to Africa, to get a feel of the continents soul.  Long may her travels continue.

Piper also leads tours to my home continent, so have a look at her website for all the latest offers.

Bio from website:
Piper Mackay is a world, wildlife and cultural photographer, based in Long Beach, California. She believes compelling visual images help to protect what is right in the world. Her work takes her to very remote locations, living cross culturally in the villages and environments that she is documenting.
Her work is heavily concentrated on the African continent, a land she fell in love with when she first touched foot on it’s rich red soil. Her passion for the natural world has grown into a lifelong commitment to inspire others to explore, respect and preserve the beauty of our fragile planet.
She believes compelling work comes when you invest time, living the stories you are trying to tell. It is important to interact and gain the trust of those whose stories you are telling, especially when sensitive and complicated. The world has enough images of poverty, pain and disaster, much more needful is imagery that reveals the beauty and dignity of the communities that are, except by their geography and circumstances, very similar to our own. Powerful images help shape the view of the world and play an important role in disseminating how cultures and wildlife are coping with the rapid changes happening in the developing world.

Piper’s images have been displayed at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, The Museum of History and industry, and  The Art Wolfe gallery, as well as local galleries.  Her work has been featured in Nature and travel publication through representation of several photo agencies, including Rangefinder, Nature’s Best, Birders, and the World Wildlife Fund.  She is an independent photographer and available for assignment work.

Her prior career in the fashion industry, where she was deeply involved with combing color and texture, has greatly enhanced her approach to the unique look and feel of each culture and photographic subject. This also gave her a strong background in business and marketing.

Heavy Atmosphere. Another image from the days I spent at Crater Lake in August under a blanket of forest fire smoke. At the time I wasn't particularly enjoying conditions, but it did allow me to create a series of images that show the lake looking unfamiliar and surreal. Forest fire is a natural and important part of the forest ecology in the northwest. For people it can range from inconvenient and oppressive to destructive and dangerous. But there is even beauty to be found in the otherwise challenging conditions.

Hand held, 1/125 second, f/11, ISO 400, 28mm focal length, polarizer.

Horseshoe Bend sunset. Arizona, June 2014.
A real classic location, for a reason! It's impossible to convey the feeling of lying on the rocks here, looking straight down into the Colorado river. But I did my very best in this shot. For those of you that haven't visited this place to give you a hint about the proportions: See the tiny white "dot" in the middle of the bend, on the other side of the river? Thats a fairly large boat that brought a dozen or so people for camping on the beach. Hope you like my image. Have a splendid sunday!

Introducing the Author #3

Name: Liesel Schwarz
Genre: Steampunk

Author's work that I have read: A Conspiracy of Alchemists (The Chronicle of Light and Shadow, #1) 

What I love about her work:
I am pretty new to the Steampunk genre and have currently only read one of Liesel's books. The other 2 are tee'd up on my kindle and I hope to enjoy them soon. Painting visual images of a fantasy world inspired by a steam era, mixed with Victorian technology, takes some doing. Liesel does this wonderfully as she transports you to the world of Eleanor "Elle" Chance, a dirigible pilot (dirigible - A self-propelled airship) and heads out on a cross-channel journey of discovery and adventure.

Great story telling with vivid imagery means an enjoyable reading experience. And that is what it's all about.more »

Bio from website:  
Liesel Schwarz writes fiction. A life-long fan of 19th Century Gothic literature, she is a hopeless romantic and loves Victorians, steampunk, fairies, fantasy monsters, the Fin de Siècle, and the correct way to drink absinthe.

She also likes Medieval stuff, pirates, zombies, space operas and all subjects in between. She is also currently busy with her doctorate in English and Creative Writing at Brunel University.

She lives in London in the United Kingdom and is definitely a cat person.

That time of the year is drawing closer again. Over the next few months, as the wildebeest do their damnedest to drown in the Mara in Africa, the northern hemisphere is entertained by the various deer ruts.

If you are in the Cape Two area have a look into this offering

Wildlife Photography Symposium & Photo Processing Workshop

Listen up people of Cape Town and surrounds! On the weekend of 15 & 16 November the Wild Shots Wildlife Photography Symposium is taking place in your city. This promises to be an immensely inspiring event bringing together people connected through a shared passion for wildlife photography and conservation. Besides myself and my +Wild Eye compadre +Andrew Beck being scheduled as featured speakers at the event (among a list of various other speakers whom I feel humbled to be featured with), we will also be presenting a customised post-processing workshop for wildlife photographers of all levels (along with +Gerry Van der Walt) on the Sunday. You don't have to be a registered Wild Shots delegate to be able to enroll for the processing workshop, but you do get a discount if you are a delegate! I think this weekend is enough reason to make plans to BE in Cape Town even if you don't live there

All the info you need to signup for Wild Shots can be found here:

Rhino Dawn

Wonderful Jurassic-like creatures on the earth to live alongside all the other species of Africa. But no, some people in the Far Ease think the horn is medicinal, or that it makes you cool to consume it. Morons, I say.

Lovely photo of the Martial Eagle by +Tim Driman 
Not my work. Please leave comments in the photographers stream.

The mighty Martial Eagle has to be my most favourite bird in all of Africa....

This was a young bird  and I would guess its age to about three years old.

When mature they are the largest eagle in southern Africa, with a wingspan up to 2.6 Metres and weighing in at about 6.5 Kilos.

Their food source covers snakes, large rodents, scrub hares, game birds,  small antelope  etc, and their very best treats are vervet monkeys which sit sunning themselves in the early morning high, in the canopies of large trees. 

The large, extremely sharp talons of these magnificent birds are hugely powerful and can easily piece the skull of a fully grown monkey!

I once saw a mature Martial Eagle take out a fully grown Steenbok ( African Antelope - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steenbok ) which it hoisted onto a high branch of a Maroela tree.  Over the course of the whole day, the Martial Eagle managed to consume the entire animal, leaving the skull and on a few bones held together with some of the skin!___Lovely photo of the Martial Eagle by +Tim Driman

Introducing the Photographer #4

Name: Dana Allen
Photography area: Wildlife and Landscapes

What I love about his work:
As you scan through any one of his portfolios, the simple colour and power of the images grab you. Whether it’s the large vistas of his landscape work or the strong emotive wildlife portraits he takes. You really feel like you are there in person, transported from your desk or couch, and dumped right into the scene. That is what good photography should do, and Dana is great at that.

Every image should tell a story and think that his work does that.

Bio from website:
Dana Allen was born in California and raised as a global citizen. As a youth he travelled widely, visiting and living in numerous countries around the world. Acquiring his first camera at the age of 12, Dana’s passion forpho... more »

Stunning photo by +Colby Brown of a place high on my bucket list. Wonderful work

"Petra at Night"
Ancient City of Petra, Jordan

While it is a joy to visit Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world, during the day...it is at night that things get incredible. A few times a week Petra opens up its doors for "Petra at Night", allowing visits to walk the illuminated 1.5k trail down the Siq, ending up at the "Treasury" being lit up by hundreds of candles. Bedouin musicians than begin to play a few of their songs while visitors sit in silence and enjoy the experience.

I can't wait to head back to Jordan to work on a few  projects!
