Gailen Mapes71,033Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R - 10 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-10 11:54:5373011

Graeme McRae24,994Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+* If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. It's a circle of people I started following a few months ago, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest. On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will start to notice your reshares, and they will engage with you, and then Google+ will "notice" (it's a computer, but let's anthropomorphise, shall we?) you and suggest you to others, who will then follow you.No, really. How can I get in your circle?. . . First, unfollow me, then wait, oh, about a week. Spend that week posting a shitload of interesting things. Then follow me. Since you're so interesting, Google+ will notify me that you followed me (G+ doesn't notify me about every follower). I'll look at your posts, find one interestin2014-05-04 21:03:52371111320

The Golden Ears

    Last week I visited Brae Island Regional Park in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.  It was one of those days where I was expecting cloud cover for the whole day, but I quickly ditched my photography plans when the clouds started clearing from the Golden Ears Mountains (Mount Blandshard) and some nice sunset light emerged.

Can you spot the Photographer/Hiker?

Another one of my new photographs from the Heather Meadows area of the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State.  I think the woman in this photograph gives a good sense of scale as to the overall scene.

Austin Pass Lake

    A photograph from the Heather Meadows area of the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State.  After photographing some wider views, I saw that these cloud patterns looked a bit like they were flowing out of the inlet stream at one end of Austin Pass Lake. I waited a few minutes for the clouds to get in a better position and made this photograph.

Rolley Lake Provincial Park

    Often photographers try to simplify a composition to show just the essential elements in a scene.  I photographed this unnamed creek flowing into Rolley Lake in Rolley Lake Provincial Park specifically because of the chaos here.  Branches every which way, rocks and boulders, fallen trees, stumps, obvious signs of logging - not a very "simple" scene at all but representative of what that forest looks like.  

For more photographs from this day at Rolley Lake read my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/fall-rolley-lake-provincial-park/

Heather Meadows

    When I was up at Heather Meadows in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest about a month ago I saw this picnic table with a great view. I had already stopped at Picture Lake to eat my soup for dinner, but this table at the Austin Pass Picnic Area with an excellent view of Canadian Border Peak, Yellow Aster Bute, American Border Peak and Mount Larrabee would have been a great spot as well. 

More photographs from Heather Meadows are in my blog post here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/heather-meadows-north-cascades/

Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus)

    Last week I photographed this Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus) on the trail to Table Mountain in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State, USA.  As with most of my wildlife photography, this was an opportunity I happened upon rather than directly seeking it out.  Wildlife was not on my mind but there were 3 of these Grouse foraging near the trail.  Well camouflaged, I didn't even see them until one of them flew out of my way from the edge of the trail.  I switched lenses and got ahead of their direction of travel, and they walked right past me.  There are a lot of visitors here, so they are likely used to people, but it is still always better to let wildlife approach your position than the other way around.

Mount Shuksan

    On Thursday last week I took advantage of a mostly sunny day to go to Heather Meadows and Artist Point at the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State, USA.  The fall colours at Heather Meadows were better than I'd seen before but I lingered too long (again) and found myself rushing around a bit at Artist Point (again) to find a good spot to photograph.  My previous attempt at photographing a reflection in this tarn was tough as there was little water in it - so I settled on this as my sunset spot. I would call this an iconic location, though it doesn't get nearly the traffic, luckily, as Picture Lake just 2.6 km (1.6 miles) from here.

The Golden Ears

    Last week I visited Brae Island Regional Park in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.  It was one of those days where I was expecting cloud cover for the whole day, but I quickly ditched my photography plans when the clouds started clearing from the Golden Ears Mountains (Mount Blandshard) and some nice sunset light emerged.

Widgeon Peak from the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve

    Another photograph I made a few weeks ago in the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Candada (in addition to my post last week).  I think this location will be one of many I visit when the fall colours get going (if they do) here in the Fraser Valley.

Just over 3 years ago I started #mountainmonday here on G+.  3 years has gone by quickly!  I wanted to thank everyone for participating over the past 3 years, and look forward to your Mountain Monday posts today and into the future.  :)

Welcome to the first week of Mountain Monday .

The way this works is each Monday we post our mountain related photos being sure to include the tag of #mountainmonday somewhere in the text. You can see all the other #mountainmonday posts by doing the following search: https://plus.google.com/s/mountainmonday/posts (you can then sort by most recent). A listing of all the weekly photography themes can be found on +Eric Leslie's website: http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/

This photograph was made after a storm had cleared from the Cascade mountains near Hope, British Columbia. I was fortunate to emerge here after hours of driving in the rain at the perfect time. This is Silver Lake in Silverlake Provincial Park, with Wells Peak in the background.___Just over 3 years ago I started #mountainmonday here on G+.  3 years has gone by quickly!  I wanted to thank everyone for participating over the past 3 years, and look forward to your Mountain Monday posts today and into the future.  :)

Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve and the Coast Mountains

    A few weeks ago I headed to the Pitt Polder Ecological Reserve in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Candada to check out potential for fall colours, and to photograph the northern lights should they show up (they didn't).  This is Gloomy Peak and parts of the Coast Range reflected in a pond along the Pitt River.  A familiar spot for me, but I did like the light here after sunset even if it was rather brief.

Mount Cheam and Harrison Hot Springs

    I was out at this spot on Friday chasing what would be a non-existent Aurora borealis display and showed a friend this photograph of what the area looked like in the winter.  This is Mount Cheam towering behind some beachfront condominiums along Harrison Lake in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia.

Cruise Ship in Vancouver

While going through some older images and catching up on keywording I found this panorama of a cruise ship docked at Canada Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  At the time I didn't know how to stitch together a pano, so this one was left untouched until I found it again recently.  Looks like I managed to catch the HeliJet in the background too - it flies from Vancouver to a number of destinations on Vancouver Island.  More about this in my blog post:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/cruise-ship-vancouver/

Columbian Ground Squirrel (Urocitellus columbianus)

    This Columbian Ground Squirrel (Urocitellus columbianus) is NOT dead - just having a good back scratch!  Back in May 2012 I was in the Lightning Lakes area of Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.  While observing the Ground Squirrels this one kept rolling on its back and kicking its legs (just like you'd see a dog scratch its back).  I didn't have the presence of mind to make a video of this, but did shoot an image sequence that sort of shows what was going on:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/columbian-ground-squirrels-u-columbianus/

Hedley, British Columbia

    I passed through Hedley, British Columbia on a trip through the BC interior back in 2009. Hedley is an old mining town, and is located at the bottom of "Nickel Plate Mountain" which you can see here. There are many great photo opportunities along the Crowsnest Highway - the Similkameen River run along side quite frequently and there are a number of small Provincial Parks with some nice scenery.

Oval Leaved Blueberries

The Oval Leaved Blueberry (Vaccinium ovalifolium) bushes on the Flower Lake Loop Trail in British Columbia's Mount Seymour Provincial Park were covered in berries.  Not nearly as sweet as the ones I am used to from my backyard, they seemed to be popular with the birds and hikers too.  I'm sure the bears are currently eating a lot of blueberries for their pre hibernation diets.

    A Corn Lily I found along the Flower Lake Loop Trail at Mount Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Not exactly a subject that is brand new, but I did have fun finding various angles from which to photograph this one a few weeks ago.  A few more images from around Flower Lake can be found on my recent blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-seymour-flower-lake/

    A Corn Lily I found along the Flower Lake Loop Trail at Mount Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Not exactly a subject that is brand new, but I did have fun finding various angles from which to photograph this one a few weeks ago.  A few more images from around Flower Lake can be found on my recent blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-seymour-flower-lake/

Mount Webb At Chilliwack Lake

    I am looking forward to photographing some fall colour again.  This photo is from Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada last year.  Mount Webb had some fresh snow on it, even though the evening at this lower elevation seemed quite warm.  More about this on my blog post here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/chilliwack-lake-fall-color/

The Coast Range

Another lesson in looking behind you.   While photographing a more iconic scene of downtown Vancouver, I turned around and made this photograph of North Vancouver  and the Coast Range mountains during blue hour.  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/north-vancouver-lights-mountains/

Lions Gate Bridge from Ambleside Park

    A panorama I made last week at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.  Quite different from the view I am used to in Stanley Park itself.  More on my blog post here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/lions-gate-bridge-ambleside-park/

Mount Cheam during Blue Hour - Mountain Monday

    A few years ago I was in the Eastern Fraser Valley looking for some new angles from which to photograph Mount Cheam.  I found favourable spot near the Fraser River and the Aggasiz Bridge and photographed the peak just after sunset.

Nicely designed presentation. You just need to keep scrolling down (and a mouse with a scrollwheel is nice;-)

Quote: "...to produce 1 kilogram of boneless beef we need 15400 liters (4074 US gallons) of water."

Highly relevant if you look at California's drought right now...
