Gailen Mapes65,741Hand 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-07-08 10:28:43134218CC G+

The Watchman, The Virgin River, and No One But Me
As I made this photo, there were at least 20 photographers lined up on the bridge in front of me making a very similar photo. They are just around the bend in the river. The perspective is a bit different: a more elevated position, less river, no tree. But is it really that much better? Is it better at all?

The first time I visited Zion National Park, I had to make “the bridge photo” too because there must be a reason why everyone is standing there, right? And there is, it’s a great vantage point. But sometimes you just have to move on, and this time I wouldn’t allow myself to make photos from the bridge.

Instead I discovered what I think is a better location. And there was no one there but me. That alone makes it a better location! There was peace and solitude. Those are critical components of photography for me.

Rolling Camera Bag - Any Opinions?
I am getting ready for a trip to Africa and I'm looking at getting a rolling camera bag. I've done a lot of research and I think I have down to two options: the Think Tank Airport 4-Sight or the Think Tank International V2. They are the same size with these differences:
- the 4-sight has 4 wheels and no laptop compartment
- the international has 2 wheels, security cables and a laptop compartment

I am going to have to buy one of these sight unseen. Does anyone have knowledge of both? Any opinions on which is better?

What I would like is to be able to work out of the bag, that means having two bodies, one with the 400mm f/5.6L attached and the other with the 70-200 f/2.8 attached. They have the same exterior dimensions, but I'm thinking the one without the laptop compartment might be bigger inside. Then again, I would... more »

Sunset at the Estuary in Campbell River, BC
A few evenings ago we were treated to the most beautiful sunset at our campsite at Thunderbird RV park in Campbell River, BC.

This is our view from the back window of the RV! I’m so glad we picked an RV with a big picture window in the back.

Doe in my campsite
I woke up the other morning to find this doe right behind our RV in Campbell River, BC! I made this photo from inside the RV through double paned tinted windows with my new Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens.

Campground Wildlife in Campbell River, BC
Our new home for the rest of the summer is in Campbell River, British Columbia, where we found a beautiful campsite with abundant wildlife, only 5 minutes walk from the marina!

The eagles always seem to be playing in the trees and flying overhead right in the campground. A perfect opportunity to practice with my new Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens!!

Our New Favourite Campsite: Alabama Hills
One of our last stops in last winter’s snowbird season was a place that has been recommended to us by a few fellow RVers: Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California.

Some of the best places we’ve discovered have been from those kinds of recommendations, and this one sure didn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s now our favourite campsite!

We had the most amazing view of any campsite we’ve been to. Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States with an elevation of 14,505 feet, was clearly visible from our site (that’s it in the back under the dark cloud).

I made this photo just before sunset one evening as the last of the day’s rays lit up the tops of the peaks. With my Sony NEX6 mirrorless camera firmly attached to my tripod, I used a small aperture to ensure that both the rock in the foregroundand the mount... more »

More signs from Wallace Island Marine Park

Don’t you just love those vacations when you have enough time to relax and start whittling away on a piece of driftwood and make something like a clock with no hands or the shape of a boat with your name on it.

These are signs made by boaters who have visited Wallace Island Marine Park, in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia.

Wallace Island Marine Park, British Columbia
Today I have a big long blog post with 12 photos from Wallace Island Marine Park, in the Gulf Islands, British Columbia.

There are lots of fascinating things to see on the island, but there is one particular building that is so fascinating it is hard to pull yourself away. I believe it’s the old store and over the past couple of decades hundreds of boaters enjoying a relaxing time on the island have carved driftwood signs with the names of their boats. Some of them are very creative!

Don’t you just love those vacations when you have enough time to relax and start whittling away on a piece of driftwood and make something like a clock with no hands or the shape of a boat with your name on it.

The island is so pristine, you would never guess it has had so many visitors over the years.

Today Canada's government will decide it's position on the Northern Gateway pipeline. It's the biggest decision our Prime Minister will make in his 8 years in power.

It could make Canada a global petro-power.

It could also destroy our ocean and everything that lives in it.

Please watch this short video to understand the degree of mis-information Enbridge would have you believe about the project.

Kolob Canyons
Zion National Park can be a pretty busy place with all the hikers doing Angel’s Landing and the Narrows and all the photographers lined up on the bridge.

Plus, we made a critical mistake. Because we had been there before, we didn’t do as much research as we usually do. We just booked a week at the RV park.

It turned out that the week we chose was spring break!!!! Noooooo!!! All the people! It was outrageous.

But we did discover a lesser known part of the park away from all the crowds: Kolob Canyons.

Roadside Attraction: California Poppies
On our drive back home from our snowbird season, we stopped for a night of free parking at a Casino in Nice, California.

As we pulled in, I noticed out of the corner of my eye, behind the dumpsters in the back, a small patch of California Poppies.

When the wind died down, I went out with my telephoto lens and my Canon 500D close-up filter to see what kind of interesting compositions I could come up with.

By the way, I love the 500D filter because it means I can get macro shots without having to carry around a dedicated macro lens.

It’s funny how often I find I great subject, or something amazing happens like an incredible sunset or a herd of antelope, in the most unexpected places like casinos and truck stops.

I had been looking for a pretty patch of poppies in all the parks, and I found them behinda... more »

Canadian photographers: How do you insure rented camera gear?

I am looking for insurance for rented gear that that covers for loss and is not homeowner insurance .

Everything seems to be damage only, not loss, and often a rider on house insurance, which wouldn't work for me.

I see a place online called "Gear Policy". It has odd wording about "mysterious disappearance". Has anyone used them?

I appreciate any advice!

Towers of the Virgin
It was one of those mornings when I lift the blinds on the window, a little bleary eyed, and suddenly I’m awake, excited about what I see. With a little hop and a jump I grab my camera gear and I’m off!

I was staying at an RV park just outside Zion National Park in Utah. The clouds looked pretty thick, but the chances were high for a dramatic view so I set off to one of the places I missed on my previous visit, the Towers of the Virgin located behind the museum.

The drive to the museum was only a couple of minutes and surprisingly there were only a few people there who soon cleared out and I was on my own.

Something magical happens when you find yourself all alone in a place like this while the clouds slowly shift, revealing different parts of the majestic mountains, in silence.

A Secret Oasis of Barrel Cacti
Somewhere off the beaten track in middle of nowhere, Nevada, I saw an interesting rock outcropping in the distance.

“Let’s go explore!” I said to Ray.

I could see the look in his eyes.

“Long Pants!” I exclaimed.

So we donned our long pants and set off amongst the prickly pear cactus, the teddy bear cholla, the walking stick cactus, the spitting needle cactus, the attack cactus, and the grabby cactus. And there were some Joshua Trees too.

After half an hour of careful stepping, we reached the rock. We photographed all around and as the sun went down I decided to walk around the back.

To my surprise, I found my own secret oasis with barrel cacti working their way up the rock cliff.

Abstract Rock Art in the Southwest
The thing I like the most about photographing in the southwest USA is the limitless opportunities not only for the grand scenic landscapes, but all the smaller abstract scenes that are inherent in them.

It’s wonderful to be able to take a stroll from the RV in any direction you choose, explore a nearby rock formation, and come away with interesting abstract photos.

Here's one I made near my campsite at Whitney Pocket, Nevada.

Arch at Whitney Pocket, Nevada
Way out in the desert, at the northeast end of Lake Mead in Nevada, lies one of our favourite new boondocking spots: Whitney Pocket.

In amongst the crags we set up our RV and spent a few days wandering this remote and peaceful area. Well, peaceful until the boy scouts showed up with their black powder guns, but you know it’s Nevada and you can do stuff like that!

Can Using a Tripod Inhibit Your Creativity?
When exploring in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, I discovered this really neat rock formation. I really liked all the rings and layers of rock, and the peak that comes up from the lower rock and touches the top of the arch, like it was molded on a pottery wheel. It’s a very unusual formation.

The sun was just about to set so I positioned myself so that the sun would peak through the opening and I used a small aperture to create a sunburst.

Although I had my tripod with me, and I’m a firm believer in tripods, sometimes I find that using it can inhibit my creativity by limiting my perspective to something I can easily achieve on the tripod.

When I made this photo I was standing on a relatively steep hill, made of this same rock, and it was hard to get the tripod positioned just right so I could capture allthe... more »

Nelson Ghost Town, El Dorado Canyon, Nevada
I met up with some friends and experimented with night photography and light painting techniques in a ghost town called Nelson, in El Dorado Canyon, about an hour away from Las Vegas.

It was exciting to explore the ghost town looking for a good photo location and figuring out how we were going to light it. We settled on this abandoned gas station with a cool old car in the garage. We stayed in this one spot and played with different lights, shining them this way and that for hours! I have a lot to learn, but this is my best shot from the night.

Chuckwalla

While I was roaming around the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, trying to get a new perspective on Fire Wave, I ran across this rather large lizard!

I had no idea what it was when I photographed her, but she’s a Chuckwalla! I’ve never heard of a Chuckwalla before.

It turns out they are a stocky wide-bodied lizard with a flattened midsection and prominent belly about 15 inches long. I believe this one is a female.

It’s wonderful to discover new things like this while out in nature.

More from Fire Wave
Here’s yet another photo from Fire Wave in the Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada.

I could spend days photographing here!

I made this photo just after the sun went down, so the soft light gives it a very different feel from the previous shots yet it still shows off all the different colours and patterns in the rock in the Valley of Fire.

I like making photos of the same place under different lighting conditions. You really learn a lot about light by doing that. Give it a try!

Another Look at Fire Wave
One of the main attractions at the Valley of Fire State Park, in Nevada, is Fire Wave. It used to be hard to find, but now there is a trail with signage to help you get there. You have to walk through the rocks from marker to marker that eventually lead you to the most fascinating rock formation.

After photographing here pretty extensively last year, I challenged myself to find a new perspective.

Fire Canyon Arch
The Valley of Fire State Park, in Nevada, was one of the best discoveries we made last year so it was high on my list of places to return to this year.

There is so much to see and explore there with interesting rock formations in all the colours of the rainbow.

Last year, the road to Silca Dome was closed, so this year we made a point of exploring in that area. We didn’t get too far down the road when we found a convenient place to pull over and then we just started walking down a wash, exploring. I was busy photographing when I heard an “over here” from Ray. So over I went and there was this beautiful arch!

It’s known as Fire Canyon Arch. In the surrounding area there are white rocks that suddenly change to red rocks, and places where there are stripes of red, white, pink, purple and yellow. It’s a fascinating place and I’ll havemany more p... more »

Picacho Peak State Park
Another one of the fantastic state parks we discovered in Arizona this year is Picacho Peak State Park, which is just south of Tucson. It’s a landmark we noticed last year when we were driving by and we made a point of exploring it this year. It has a beautiful campground with huge sites and some nice hiking trails.

You can actually hike right up to the top of the peak with the help of some cables! I’ve heard it’s the best hike in Arizona. But I wouldn’t really know, I didn’t go up there :)

I was too early for the wildflowers, but I managed to find a teddy bear cholla cactus to put in the foreground. You can see how it’s little pieces fall off and if you step anywhere near them they will gleefully attach themselves to you.

I’ve learned to always wear long pants and step carefully when searching for my perfect photo locationin the desert... more »

Feature in Extraordinary Vision Magazine
I am so happy that I've had another article featured in Extaordinary Vision Magazine, the #1 outdoor photography magazine in Apple’s Newsstand.

What makes me even happier is to see my name on the cover there next to +Dewitt Jones  who inspired me to find my path of using photography to see what is good and right in the world. My life has changed a lot since I saw Dewitt's videos.

Superstition Mountains
One of the best things about RVing is that you meet people along the way who tell you their stories of places they have been. It’s not hard to discover the best places to go because they keep coming up in conversation.

The Superstition Mountains in Lost Dutchman State Park, Arizona, is one of those places.

Bandon Beach Seascape
A seascape is like a breath of fresh salty air isn’t it?

I am a little tired of the cactus photos, and thought maybe you were too, so I dug up this seascape from earlier this snowbird season.

I made it in one of my favourite places in the world, Bandon Beach, Oregon.

More from Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
One evening, just before the sunset, I found one of the craziest Organ Pipes I saw in the park! I liked how the golden rays fell on the Organ Pipe, lit up the red rock in the mountain in the background, and made the leaves on the Ocotillo glow orange.

The Organ Pipe Cactus
One of my favourite new discoveries from this snow bird season is Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona, the only place in the USA where the Organ Pipe Cactus grows.

The cactus gets its name from the many slender, narrow stems which rise vertically and resemble a pipe organ. A very, very big pipe organ! They can be 16 feet high and as much as 12 feet wide and live to be 150 years old.

There is a lot to see in the park and so I spent my days driving around, exploring, scouting locations, and finding perfect specimens to photograph during the good light. But one can only look at so many photos of a cactus, so I decided to pick out four of my favourites and share them all in today’s blog post.

Here is one of them. You can see the others on the blog:

Sunset on a Sleeping Princess
Our favourite new campsite is a BLM site called Gunsight Wash near Organ Pipe Catus National Monument.

In the distant hills is a formation known as the sleeping princess, and we had a great view of her right from our site as the sun set behind her.

Imagine her lying on her back, the sun setting behind her head on the left, and the rest of her body on the right.

A Typical Desert Scene
http://annemckinnell.com/2014/03/26/typical-desert-scene/

As a landscape photographer, one of the things you’ll find yourself doing a lot is waiting.

Once you find your perfect location, you must wait for the light to be just right. While you’re waiting, take a good look around. The light might not be perfect on the scene you’ve planned, but it might be perfect just behind you.

On the evening I was waiting for the last light on a Saguaro Cactus, I turned and looked behind me and saw this typical desert scene. There’s nothing particularly unique about it. Just a Chain Fruit Cholla and a bunch of scrubby brush (that’s my name for all the miscellaneous shrubs like creosote bush and brittle bush). But what was special was the light.

It’s always about the light.

Even when the subject might be considered boring,the light c... more »

Gila Woodpeckers and Saguaro Cactus
I always see Gila Woodpeckers on the Saguaros everywhere we go in Arizona. I don’t know how they manage to perch themselves against so many spiny needles! You even see them standing on the very top of the cactus as if they are smooth telephone poles. Believe me, they are anything but smooth!

I came across this Saguaro in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, where there are more Saguaros than in Saguaro National Park. With the bird’s nest cradled in its arms, the birds must feel quite protected from any predators. Still, they peck holes in the cactus and make homes inside!

I saw one of them go in a hole and I waited for a long time hoping to get a photo of the woodpecker looking out, but it wasn’t to be.

Ocotillo Abstract
At our BLM campsite in Gunsight Wash, near Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona, it was one of those sunsets where there is just a tiny strip of colour next to the horizon.

To make the most of it, I decided to use my telephoto lens so the colours would fill the frame and then I got behind an Ocotillo cactus and used its spiny stems to make an interesting graphic design which would form a silhouette against the sky.

This is my attempt at coming up with a unique composition in the desert!

Last Light on Saguaro Cactus
On one of our first nights visiting Organ Pipe National Monument in Arizona some clouds rolled in. It was quite unusual! So Ray and I drove into the park and found an area with lots of Saguaros to photograph. There are actually more Saguaros here than in Saguaro National Park!

The light was grey, but I could see a strip of open sky near the horizon where the sun would set, so I knew that when the sun was low enough, it would light up the mountains if only for a few seconds.

In my post earlier this week, I made it sound like finding a good Saguaro was easy. Sometimes it is – it will be right there in your campsite. Other times you have to look a little harder to find a good specimen – one that you can isolate from the others and doesn’t have a bunch of scrubby brush around it.

On this night Ray and I went hiking out into a fieldonly ... more »

Chain Fruit Cholla
A cactus can be hard to photograph. Usually when I am photographing anything I am looking for a good graphic design, interesting lines and textures, and a clean background. With a cactus, you have the textures covered, but often the lines are anything but uniform and the background is often full of scrubby brush that just looks messy.

Near our campsite in Why, Arizona, I discovered there were some unusually large Chain Fruit Cholla, one of the varieties of cactus that has eluded me in photographic pursuits in the desert. Finding a good Saguaro is one thing, but finding a good Chain Fruit Cholla is quite another!

As with all plants, a big factor in making a good photograph is in finding the perfect specimen. So when I saw this Chain Fruit Cholla, with it’s green parts all at the top of the plant, and with an interesting graphic design in its branches, Ik... more »

Southwest Blue
The American southwest is so red and green, with the rocks and the cacti, except at twilight when the pastel blues of the twilight sky cover the reds and greens like a baby’s blanket.

I made this photo just down the road from our campsite in the Plomosa BLM in Quartzsite, Arizona.

Full Moon over RVs in Quartzsite, Arizona
Quartzsite, Arizona, is a small town of only a few thousand people. Until the snowbirds arrive.

In January and February the tiny town hosts over 1.5 million tourists, most of them RVers.

We arrived a few days before the giant RV show which is held in the town every year. We picked out our spot a little ways away from everyone else in one of the many BLM (Bureau of Land Management) grounds where you can boondock for free.

But as the show time got closer, more and more RVs showed up. Only a couple of days before I made this photo, this land was empty.

I thought the RVs made an interesting foreground to the spectacular full moon.

This is a single 0.4 second exposure made with my new Sony NEX6 and the 55-210mm lens.

Cholla Cactus Garden
One of the most interesting features of Joshua Tree National Park in California is the Cholla Cactus Garden.

But, it is really hard to get a good composition here. At least that’s what I found. I was disappointed with the photos I made here last year, so this year I was determined not only to be there in good light, but to find a cholla I could isolate.

One of the reasons they are so hard to photograph is that the bottoms of them have this burnt look that isn’t very attractive. When I first saw them I thought they actually were burnt, but they are all like that.

This is the “Teddy Bear” Cholla. The name is actually pretty appropriate because like a real bear, they may look nice but but believe me, you don’t want to hug it.

In fact, this type of cholla drops little pieces of itself and those pieces jump out at you as youwalk by a... more »
