Gailen Mapes61,933Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  G-H - 5 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 Mapes2014-04-05 13:33:141719212CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream.

Rusty Ferguson8,943Geesh, if its not me fouling up its G+. I know I had people marked for notification. They didn't go out. I will republish this circle tomorrow. I would just send notifications again but in my error prone stage, I also left myself out of this circle and that's not good at all.So I will leave it here and share it again tomorrow.CORRECTED The Rusty Ball Shared Circle of Commenter’s Edition #3 =========================================================What? “Rusty, did you share this ball last night?” Well, you see, I screwed up. I meant too but I shared the reshared circle instead. You see they were sitting next to each other in my account. I  clicked the wrong one. I made it worse by notifying the people in the commenter’s circle. So I notified the wrong people too. I’m sorry.So tonight, I’m sharing the commenter’s circles as I intended to do last night.This all reminds me of a sign that use to hang in the computer lab at my college. To err is human but to really foul up one needs a computer.I’m sorry. I think it is the first time I've done something like that but I predict if I keep doing this and expand it as I plan to, I’m probably do it again sometimes. I hope not.When I realized my mistake, the circle had already been out there for about 30 minutes and it was way to late to delete it and start over. I thought it best just to continue going.The circle wasn't fully ready yet as I had not added everyone to it that I intended to so some got left out. Again, I'm sorry for my mistake.I thought about just keeping my mouth shut but I’m sure others got notified that were not there and didn't say anything.=========================================================This is a group focused on those people that have commented on my post during the prior week. It also includes key circle resharers and those that have reshared circles this week..  Since these folks were engaging with me in the prior week, adding this group will give you a nice group of currently active commenter’s. It is a group of people that like to engage on Google Plus.When people leave meaningful comments you can get to know them better. This is my favorite type of engager.Add it and engage with the circle and you're likely to find engagement on your G+ post rise. The higher your engagement, the more G+ will show your post in your extended circles.How to be included In Rusty’s Balls If you’d like to be included in future engagement circles, go to my profile and hopefully you will find something there that you can plus, comment and reshare. I favor those that also engage with non-shared circle post. I sample certain post  each week, usually on Saturday to find those that engage. I do not include all of my post so engage often if you wish to be included. Also,1. Plus this post. (Original post)2. Comment on this post.3. Reshare this circle publically to your stream. 4. Don't be a blue head. I am often a day or two behind in notifications but I do try to respond to everything. Sometimes I miss things so if it is important, say it again. How to Be Removed from my Shared CirclesAs with all of my circles, if you find yourself included and don’t wish to be in future circles, let me know and I’ll make sure you don’t show up in another one. This will likely require me to block you as it is the only way I can be 100 percent sure you don’t appear again.Or you can just not plus, comment or reshare any of my circles and that will likely you get removed soon.Sometimes people tell me they have not engaged with me.

Happy Friday!!! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! 

This is a pretty little Blue Dick from the California Foothills.  Again, I apologize for the name... not my fault.  It's also known as Dichelostemma capitatum, common brodiaea, or wild hyacinth if you prefer.  In the background are some lovely #bokehlicious  poppies.

This spring has turned out to be a fantastic one for California Poppies!!  The lower foothills are covered with carpets of them.  I love all the photos from other local photographers of them.  But I also love the mixed meadows of in some cases dozens of different wildflowers.  Within this meadow were blue dicks (I didn't name them!) 3 different types of lupines, 2 other types of poppies, popcorn flowers, paintbrushes, and probably several others I've missed.  Sadly with the warmer weather this week, they'll probably be gone fast.

Ever since the fires last summer, I knew I wanted to come back to this area and shoot it in the snow.  Well then it hardly snowed all winter.  :(

I forgot how hard it is to shoot snow and get it exposed correctly.  Especially when it's against a harsh black subject.  When blending exposures they looked too fake to me.  So I came back to one single exposure and played around with the shadow and highlight sliders until I sorta liked it.  I have a few other compositions that I like better, but I like the trunk on this one the best.

Rim of the World

Subtitled When Seasons Collide

I don't often stop at this overlook.   But sometimes with just the right morning light, a dusting of snow and some actual bits of green on the north side of the canyon, it's easy to see how it got it's name.  
Last summer way down at the bottom was where the Rim Fire started (and named after this overlook).  While much of what you see was severely burnt - there are also lots of signs of regrowth.  The wildflowers are blooming, grasses are sprouting.  I spotted a few deer having breakfast as well.  Hopefully soon the shrubs and trees will follow.

To say this winter has been odd is an understatement.  Just about a week ago I was in shorts working on getting the veggie beds ready for the summer garden.  The wildflowers are blooming in the lower foothills. Then a few cold storms blew in.  So... I went to Yosemite today to enjoy it.  Soooo glad I did.  The snow started melting early but it was so pretty while it lasted.

I'm still going through and scanning old family slides.  While this one has faded and lost some of it's quality, I still love it.  For one, it's a side of Donnell Reservoir not often seen.  Most people stop at the over look on the far side of the lake, and look straight down on it.  I couldn't even find a shot on Google Maps/Panoramio from this side.  It isn't an easy hike - maybe it's easier from Highway 4, I'm not sure.  but you really don't see Niagara Creek Falls from the south side.  This was from a horseback trip my Dad did about 30 years ago.  I love the falls, but I love the scale the guy on the rock gives.  He was definitely NOT afraid of heights.  It's a long way straight down.

Hehehe found this while scanning in old slides - my mom in the family wheat fields - in the late 60s.  I'm not sure if my dad or my grandmother shot this.

It was such a pretty day today, I wound up going on a nice little hike in search of wildflowers.  With the grasses already starting to cure off, I wanted to enjoy the short short spring.  I found this little clearing with nice backlight on a bunch of lupines.  Just out of sight were a bunch of poppies, fiddlenecks, monkey flowers, and many other lovelies.  And of course, I could hear some cows mooing in the distance :)

Earlier this week I went on a little day trip to enjoy the beautiful spring weather.  (East coast, MidWest and Canadians, no hating please!)  I started off with oodles of daffodils, and then finished up at +Long Dream Farm where +Andrew Abrahams and his wonderful family gave me a tour.  They have such a lovely farm!  The while all of the animals were super sweet and gentle, the Highland's were by far the sweetest.  And the furriest.  Especially since the alpacas had just been shorn.  Seriously how can you not love a face like this?  

Thank you so much for such a fun tour!!

I'm a bit late in posting, but it's still Sunday!!  

First.  This Sign lied.  It was about this time when I was meandering the windmills that I realized I couldn't find the road I came in on.  It's a maze of dirt roads that all end at a windmill.  I saw one of these signs on the way in, and figured it would lead me out.  WRONG.  It led me to another gate that was locked.  The sad thing is, I could see where I wanted to go, just couldn't find the right road out of 2,000 that would get me there!

Daffodils always look so darn happy to me.  Maybe it's the warm colors, the shape, I don't know.  These guys are up at +Ironstone Vineyards .  Each year they have a huge daffodil and then tulip show.  The daffodils are just past peak but the tulips are just getting going.  

They have tasty wine too!

Snowflake-a-Day #5

Symmetry in snowflake is not as common as you might think. This crystal shows fairly consistent symmetry across all the branches, but when you view large and zoom in, there are many unique features on each branch.

Snowflakes are never as perfect as the ones you see in advertisements and decorations. This is because there is absolutely nothing that links the growth of the branches together. They grow in similar patterns and shapes only because the environmental variables are nearly identical. Even slight changes from one edge of a snowflake to another can cause differences to occur.

As differences in the branches begin to appear, the aerodynamic property of the snowflake can be altered which will also affect the growth. When I spot a symmetrical snowflake, I usually go out of my way to photograph it - they're beautiful gems of the sky and... more »

I had to run some errands today that luckily took me past a few peach orchards.  Most of the blossoms are gone, but a few stuck around despite the little downpour and windstorm this morning.

Customer service seems to be a forgotten part of many businesses lately. But I just had the most wonderful experience with Sleep Number beds. Ever since I moved (and yes, it was a few years ago) I've had issues with the two air chambers separating. I kept thinking it was just because I put the bumper things back together incorrectly. After trying every combination, I finally have up and called them, hoping to just get a diagram of how they were supposed to go together.

Well the nice guy I spoke with listened - yes listened! And then asked me a few follow up questions. Turns out I may have an issue with the air chambers, not the bumpers. And they'd replace them free of charge! Despite the fact my bed is almost 7 years old. I love my bed because it's so comfy, but this makes me love it even more.

A swirling Eastern Pacific Ocean storm system headed for California was spotted by NOAA's GOES-West satellite on Feb. 28. According to the National Weather Service, this storm system has the potential to bring heavy rainfall to the drought-stricken state.

The storm was captured using visible data from NOAA's GOES-West or GOES-15 satellite on Feb. 28 at 1430 UTC/6:30 a.m. PST was made into an image by NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The storm's center appeared as a tight swirl, with bands of clouds and showers already sweeping over the state extending from northern California to Baja California, Mexico.

This morning +Lauri Novak posted this great #webcamwednesday  shot - https://plus.google.com/u/0/+LauriNovak/posts/E5WiqtaHKujIt made me realize how much I miss having hair long enough for ponytails.  Then... I remembered I had this wig, so I had to add my own spoof.  Silly me doesn't have a turtleneck with as much turtle though.  
 
One of the funniest spoofs of Lauri is +Jason Kowing 's shot here https://plus.google.com/u/0/106488284533523054088/posts/GboRsfGKdNd  :D

PS - it's hard to put ponytails on a wig... it keeps sliding around.

Photographers are a funny bunch sometimes.  We get up in arms over someone stealing our work for their blog/ad/whatever, but many of us do not know or follow property release laws.  Just as ignorance is no excuse for those that steal our work, neither is it when we photograph and profit from other’s works or likenesses.  

Many assume that just because you are on public property it means you do not need a release.  This is not always the case.  Many public art installations are copyrighted.  A recent case being when the US Post Office used a photograph of the Korean War Memorial in Washington D.C.  The sculptor sued the P.O. and the photographer who never had a release to use the art.  The sculptor won one, and settled out of court for the other case.  http://petapixel.com/2013/09/23/sculptor-awarded-685000-photo-korean-war-memorial-used-stamp/

This might be one of the most nerve wracking photos I've shot.  Standing directly underneath something this huge, and moving, was a bit spooky!  It didn't help that there were random bits of propellers and blades laying around...  I was just waiting for this thing to come flying off and attack me.

Yesterday I played around with ICM a bit.  I really wasn't expecting this much color - it was a rather grey and black foreground.  But it picked up on the colors in the sky and distance.

I went for a little drive this afternoon.  I had recently talked to my Dad and he had said he had not seen Lake Don Pedro this low since before it was a Lake.  He actually was starting to wonder if the remains of Jacksonville (http://www.sierranevadageotourism.org/content/jacksonville-no-419-california-historical-landmark/sie0BA46CB5BC0021691) would eventually pop up through the water.  

There supposedly is a storm on the way - not a large one, but hopefully it will get things rolling.  It hasn't rained since before Christmas, and much of California's drinking and irrigation water comes from spring runoff of the snowpack in the Sierras.   

This however is the bottom of the Lake - there is still water in it, but it is no where near capacity.  The wind from the incoming storm was kicking up a lot of dust and dirt, it felt like the land was turning to desert.  :(

The other night I was running around trying to find an alternate spot to shoot the sunset/moonrise.  My first spot was out because the gate was shut :(  I drove around like crazy and finally settled here.  It wasn't my ideal spot, but was happy with it.  The Santa Ana winds kicked up so much dust, the moon really wasn't clear until fairly high in the sky.
