Gailen Mapes65,912Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  R - 10 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 +2014-07-10 12:19:3977408CC G+

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 21:03:52371111319CC G+

Mazama Ridge Wildflowers

    Summer wildflowers on Mazama Ridge with the Tatoosh Range in the background - in Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State, USA.  I made this photograph last year during the wildflower bloom at Rainier. You can see a few other photographs from the nearby Paradise area in my recent blog post here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-rainier-paradise/

Do you have any photographs you've made of mountains?  Post them on G+ for #mountainmonday ( +Mountain Monday )!  Just be sure to use the #MountainMonday  tag, and mentioning me by name also helps me find the posts through notifications.  I look forward to seeing your photos!

Silver Lake Reflections

    I reviewed a few of my earlier photographs from Silver Lake Provincial Park (near Hope, BC) a few days ago and had one of those "what was I thinking!?" moments regarding the processing.  This may not be my "final" edit of this image, but I do think it is a great improvement over my previous editing using the methods I employ now.

Sasquatch Provincial Park

  I might be stretching the term waterfall slightly here, but these small falls on a creek next to Hicks Lake in Sasquatch Provincial Park grabbed my attention while on a hike.  I stopped along the Hicks Lake Trail to make photographs here for a few minutes before continuing on.  

You can see more photographs from this park in my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/sasquatch-provincial-park/

Mount Rainier's Shadow

    I had seen a few photographs with the shadows of mountains at sunrise and sunset before, but hadn’t give it much thought in terms of finding this phenomenon myself. It was on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park last August I saw this for the first time.  The dark blue in the sky is the shadow of Mount Rainier cast down towards Stevens Valley and the Cascade mountains to the east.  More photos from my hike to Mazama ridge here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mazama-ridge-mount-rainier-np/

Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park

    A panorama of the Tatoosh Range and the wildflowers on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State, USA.  I made this photograph from the Lakes Trail on Mazama Ridge last August.  In about a month this will likely be what the area looks like again, as the snow is almost melted now (at least it appears to be on the Paradise webcams).  I did a write up of my hike last year to Mazama Ridge on my blog, including some other photographs of the area here: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mazama-ridge-mount-rainier-np/

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

For today's Bird themed Wildlife Wednesday I have a photograph of a Great Blue Heron I made a few years ago at the Capilano River in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.  Herons are pretty easy to photograph, and this one stood still long enough for me to do some longer exposures to blue the water in the background.

I wrote a blog post about shutter speed and this photograph.  Compare this to the one with a faster shutter speed - the difference is dramatic.

Mount Rainier National Park Sunset

  I made this sunset photograph last year while on my first ever hike on Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park. Generally speaking, sunsets are what I have my back to (or my side to) when I am photographing at this time of day.  Once the sun was below the horizon on this particular evening, however, I did enjoy the light over the Cascade Range to the south of Mt. Rainier.  

You can see a few other photographs I made from Mazama Ridge earlier that evening here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/rainier-wildflowers-mazama-ridge/

Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis)

    Last week I spend a day exploring Sasquatch Provincial Park near Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada.  I did some hiking, and in hiking to a beach on Hicks Lake I found several Garter Snakes basking in the sand along the shore.  Not my intended subjects, but as a wildlife photography opportunist, I was happy to take advantage of the opportunity.  I used my longest lens with a 1.4x extender so I wouldn't have to get close enough to these snakes to disturb them.

Harrison Lake and the Lillooet Range

    I spent Friday photographing much of Sasquatch Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.  At the end of the day I had hoped to pick up some sunset light and then blue hour over the Cheam Range, as I did earlier in the year ( http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/harrison-hot-springs-mount-cheam-range/ ).  This was not to be, however, so I photographed some of the sunset light in the clouds over Harrison Lake, Echo Island and the Lillooet Range instead.  More to come soon from my trip on Friday!

Sunset in Nanaimo Harbour

    This photo is from a trip to Biggs Park in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada just over a year ago.  The freighter was in "the way" of some of the compositions I'd wanted, so I just embraced what was there and went with it.  I was lucky to get some good light.  A bit more about this freighter on my blog post: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/nanaimo-harbour-sunset/

Steelhead Falls Part II

    A second photograph from Steelhead Falls in Mission, British Columbia.  Last week I posted a more direct view of this falls.  This version is slightly upstream and a side view - and I like the variety of foliage around it vs. my original photograph.  There were several other vantage points I would love to photograph from, but falling down a cliff just wasn't part of my hiking schedule last week.  :)

Mount Blandshard

    This is an older photograph I made of Mount Blandshard in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada.  Familiar to anyone in the Lower Mainland of BC as the "Golden Ears", these were mountains I grew up looking at out my bedroom window.  It has been a few years, but I remember waiting for this cloud to finally creep into the frame and hoping it would be before the moon climbed out of reach.

You can see more photographs from this area, including Mount Blandshard/Golden Ears in the Vancouver Coast & Mountains gallery on my website:  http://goo.gl/qPrAqV

New blog post where I'm talking about how photograph is such a mental game to play. I talk about the plateau of mediocrity and making progress as an artist.

The Tatoosh Range for Mountain Monday

    This is a photograph I made on a hike up Mazama Ridge in Mount Rainier National Park last August.  I was lucky to get some good light, and find a lot of wildflowers to photograph.  The foreground wildflowers are Bell Mountain Heather, a few Lupines and some Paintbrush. The background is one of my favourite MRNP subjects - the Tatoosh Range.

A few more photos from Mazama Ridge can be found in my blog posts: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/6122/rainier-wildflowers-mazama-ridge/

Silver Lake Reflections

    I reviewed a few of my earlier photographs from Silver Lake Provincial Park (near Hope, BC) a few days ago and had one of those "what was I thinking!?" moments regarding the processing.  This may not be my "final" edit of this image, but I do think it is a great improvement over my previous editing using the methods I employ now.

A Macro Panorama?

    Calling this a macro panorama might be an abuse of the word panorama, but it was what I was trying to achieve a few years ago.  This is what I presume to be Cup Lichen (not entirely a fungus, not a plant - do you know what it is?) on a Maple tree trunk.  I thought I would post this for #macromonday to skirt the no bugs, no flowers rule for today.  The main subject here isn't even a plant!  I had considered getting around the no insect rule by posting one of my spider macros, but curator Sandra "persuaded" me not to.  :-P   I'd probably get hate mail like last time I posted a spider on social media anyway.  Those anti-spider people get pretty vocal. ;)

Rosa glauca Flower

    A Rosa glauca species of rose (common name: Redleaf Rose or Red leaved Rose) in a backyard rose garden.  This species is an ornamental here in North America but is native to central and southern Europe.

I had not seen this behaviour with birds before, but the racoons at my University certainly knew how the motion sensor doors worked, and where all the garbage cans were inside!

Mazama Ridge Wildflowers

    Summer wildflowers on Mazama Ridge with the Tatoosh Range in the background - in Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State, USA.  I made this photograph last year during the wildflower bloom at Rainier. You can see a few other photographs from the nearby Paradise area in my recent blog post here:  http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-rainier-paradise/

Do you have any photographs you've made of mountains?  Post them on G+ for #mountainmonday ( +Mountain Monday )!  Just be sure to use the #MountainMonday  tag, and mentioning me by name also helps me find the posts through notifications.  I look forward to seeing your photos!

Congratulations, +Animal Planet! You've stooped to a new low by catering to completely irrational and unscientific fears from an ignorant public. You have truly outdone yourself as a champion for morons. Be sure to keep up those ratings by portraying nature in its opposite reality!

Bigleaf Maple in Macmillan Provincial Park

   This Bigleaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum) in this photograph (left) is a good example of an ecological "Edge effect".

Mount Cheam and Harrison Hot Springs

    Back in January I went to the Harrison Lake area to photograph some winter scenes. I made this "blue hour" photograph from Harrison Hot Springs' beach area, looking back towards the waterfront condominiums with Mount Cheam range as the backdrop.

Question...  I made the assumption a while back that if you blocked someone, they could see your public posts, but they wouldn't be able to comment, you wouldn't be notified about anything they do, see their comments in other public posts etc.  This was a big strength of G+ as those who act up you are essentially able to erase from your G+ existence.

Someone I blocked (for good reason) is able to comment on my posts...  though that post remains hidden behind a message along the lines of "This comment is hidden because you've blocked the commenter".

Is this new?

Edith Creek Waterfall

    Another photograph from the Paradise area of Mount Rainier National Park. On this evening after sunset here was a big cloud in the sky near Rainier that was lit up bright purple but I wasn’t able to find a composition that worked with it. I had the idea to shoot this creek's reflection to show the colour in the sky - but I was about 500m up the trail at the time.  Jogging down the trail with my tripod and gear caused some tourist curiosity to say the least, but I've learned that if I don't hustle the light has a mind of its own.  This 20 second exposure was one of only two that I had time to make (the second one was horizontal) before the lights were shut off and it was over for the night.

Black-tailed Deer (Odocileus hemionus columbianus)

    You can spot the deer, you can get in position to photograph them as they move through the wildflower field, but you can't make them look at you! A pair of Black-tailed Deer (Odocileus hemionus columbianus) were nice enough to amble right past me in the wildflower fields on the Golden Gate Trail above Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park - but never once glanced in my direction.  I even scuffed my feet in the gravel trail once... nothing.  At least I know I wasn't disturbing them!

I have published a few more images from this area in a new blog post, including a closer image of the male in this pair: http://photoblog.mrussellphotography.com/mount-rainier-paradise/
