Gailen Mapes85,149Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-R - 7 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-07 10:45:05182000

Mount Rainier

Having further conquered some more of my processing backlog - I have a new photograph (made in 2009) of Mount Rainier.  This may wind up working better as a black and white photo, but I wanted to share this version first.  I may never see another lenticular quite like this over Rainier, but I enjoyed this one for as long as I could 6 years ago.

For more of my Mount Rainier photography you can visit my image library: http://mrussellphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery/Mount-Rainier-National-Park/G0000g5NtxYq2BV8/

Mount Rainier from Sunrise

Today is the 116th Birthday of Mount Rainier National Park!  So for Mountain Monday this week I thought it appropriate to share another photograph of Mount Rainier - this time from the Sunrise area with some Apline Aster flowering in the foreground.

Frozen Silver Lake Provincial Park

    Today in the Fraser Valley it is warm and about 22°C/72°F which naturally means I am posting a photograph of a frozen lake. :)  This is Silver Lake in Silver Lake Provincial Park near Hope, British Columbia.  I made this photograph during a cold snap back in late 2013.  It was not an uneventful trip - and I wrote more about this on my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/silver-lake-locked-gate/

Mount Cheam

    Mount Cheam is a familiar sight for anyone who lives in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada.  I photographed Cheam (left) and nearby Mount Archibald (right) early in January 2013 after a fresh dusting of snow.  The sunset I was anticipating never materialized, but I did get some nice blues from the sky after sunset.  Sometimes I prefer a more subtle light like this anyway.  :)

So last week I mentioned the video card in my computer sparked, smoked, and died.  Turns out that was all that was wrong (that I know about) but I upgraded my 2008 built system anyway.  Before I did, I timed how long it took me to load 20 layers on Photoshop, align them, save the file, blend them, save the file, crop and flatten - and save the file.   4.5 hours.  Last night I tested this again on the new system.  4 minutes 45 seconds.   Looks like this system is a bit faster! :)

A few specs if you are interested:

Intel Core i7 4790K Unlocked Quad Core HT 4GHZ/4.4GHZ
EVGA GeForce GTX 960 Acx 2.0
Samsung 850 EVO 250 Gb

Mount Shuskan

    I've shared this image of Mount Shuksan in Washington State before.  While most would probably place it in the category of "greatest hits" it actually deserves to be called a cover song.  While I've seen many photos from here, I do like the conditions I found - and don't see too many versions of this with the same lighting and clouds.  Of the 3 like this that I know of, one is mine and the other two photographers were standing nearby. :)

So this morning my computer decided to explode (video card is now singed and burnt).  Pointing this out here as my #mountainmonday recap is on that computer (I save it as a text file as I find posts).  It may resurface later tonight, tomorrow, or never, depending on how much computer damage I have.   So stay tuned for that... probably.

High winds blow dust and dirt into the air over Harrison Bay near Kilby Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada.  There was such little color in this scene that converting it to BW made immediate sense.  Sitting on the beach here was like getting sandblasted - I still find sand in my camera bag from it.

... and then came the airplanes

    I pointed out in an earlier blog post that most of the time I try to plan for where the sun and moon are going to be when I am shooting.  This is so I can avoid them, or plan to include them in a photograph.  Impossible to plan for, however, are airplanes flying over scenes such as this one.  I made the photograph here of Mount Shuksan and a tarn on Kulshan Ridge in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington State anyway, but airplane trails were not really what I had been hoping for!

I made a photograph a bit earlier than this one that includes some sunset colours: http://mrussellphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Mountain-Photos/G0000zsULbtjUcfw/I0000ZEfR5_ws0xA/C0000dUF3SoX_ITs

Mount Rainier

Having further conquered some more of my processing backlog - I have a new photograph (made in 2009) of Mount Rainier.  This may wind up working better as a black and white photo, but I wanted to share this version first.  I may never see another lenticular quite like this over Rainier, but I enjoyed this one for as long as I could 6 years ago.

For more of my Mount Rainier photography you can visit my image library: http://mrussellphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery/Mount-Rainier-National-Park/G0000g5NtxYq2BV8/

When Should You Include a Foreground?

In this photograph, made a number of years ago in White Sands National Monument, I liked the shapes of the dunes, but thought the lone yucca was even more compelling. So in this case, the foreground was essential; it's really the subject and focal point of the image.

But that's not always the case. Many great landscape photographs have no foreground whatsoever (Ansel Adams' Moon and Half Dome comes to mind). In my latest blog post I discuss when you need a foreground, when you don't, and why some foregrounds work better than others:

Fall Foliage at Harrison Lake

I've been working through some of my archives and keywording older images for my website.  This one came up recently - and example of great fall foliage colours at Harrison Lake in British Columbia's Fraser Valley.  More about this on my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/harrison-lake-waterfront-property/

Table Mountain

    Table Mountain is in Washington State's Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest - and very close to the Mount Baker Ski area.  This winter has been very warm and for the first time in many years this ski operation has had to cease operations this early in the season.  There is currently less than 2 feet (61 cm) of snow in the area pictured above - and the norm is roughly 6-700 inches (17.78 m).  Hopefully we will get some snow in the North Cascades and Pacific Coast Range or I think there may be some water issues for the rest of the year.

For more photos from this area (and prints/licensing info) visit my Mount Baker Gallery :  http://mrussellphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery/Mount-Baker-Snoqualmie-National-Forest-Photos/G0000uN6DWjvjQoQ/

Mount Rainier from Sunrise

Today is the 116th Birthday of Mount Rainier National Park!  So for Mountain Monday this week I thought it appropriate to share another photograph of Mount Rainier - this time from the Sunrise area with some Apline Aster flowering in the foreground.

For more photographs of Mount Rainier National Park check out my image library:  http://mrussellphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery/Mount-Rainier-National-Park/G0000g5NtxYq2BV8/

I gave a lot of blood (mosquitoes) for this photo, but what really made it better was a thorough reprocessing a few years later.

Spring may be early here but it will be a while before I can pick these fresh off the bushes again.  Can't wait!

A few clouds would have been nice but I think the way the light fell on Mount Baker made up for it.
