Donegal Photowalk 2014211Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome. If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points in a few weeks. We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option. CheersAthena & AndyUK Seaside Photowalk2013-10-05 09:00:0071

Swiss Photography Club G+94818 August 2012 (1 day)This photowalk leads us to the Big Aletsch Glacier. The glacier is located in the Bernese Alps, we will access it from the village Fiesch, Valais.We meet at 8 am, going up to Fiescheralp by cablecar. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to get to the glacier by an easy or medium hike (no uphill). At Märjelensee, a small restaurant is waiting for us. After lunch, we will take a tour on the surface of the glacier in a small group. We return to the village Fiesch in the evening by cablecar.LocationFiesch is located in the upper Valais, in 27km / 30 minutes distance from Visp. Fiesch is easily accessible by train and car.Meeting point / meeting timeWe meet at 8.00 am at the valley station of the cablecar directly in Fiesch.http://goo.gl/maps/Ms4IpWe buy tickets and take the 8.30 am cablecar up to Fiescheralp or Eggishorn.Ticket price Fiescheralp retour is CHF 26.20 (13.10 with half-tax)Ticket price Eggishorn / Fiescheralp retour is CHF 38.40 (19.20 with half-tax)Access hikeWe have two options:For perfect weather, we can take the cablecar up to Eggishorn top station for a magnificient overview over the Big Aletsch Glacier. We have to walk down a medium-steep trail down to Märjelensee (approx. 500 meter altitude difference, 1.5 - 2 hrs).In cloudy weather conditions, we hike directly from Fiescheralp to Märjelensee (2 - 3 hrs). There is almost no change in altitude, and we use a 800m long tunnel.MärjelenseeAt Märjelensee we will have lunch in the "Gletscherstube". After this, we walk down to the Big Aletsch Glacier, passing several lakes.The glacier walkA limited group of 10 people will be guided on the surface of the glacier. If time permits, we will walk to the middle moraine stream of this wonderful glacier. Outstanding photos are guaranteed! Please note that there are some reservations already.Return hikeWe have to leave the Märjelensee area latest at 4 pm in order to catch the last afternoon cablecar at 6 or 6.30 pm. Anyone who likes to stay longer or have dinner in a restaurant at Fiescheralp can take the last cablecar down at 9.45 pm (no cablecars between 6.30 pm and 9.45 pm).Gear for the hikeWhat should you wear? Well, you definitely should bring hiking boots (simple running shoes are not sufficient). If you have a pair of hiking poles, bring them. Make sure you have some light gloves, a cap and a jacket available as the evening can get cold. A spare shirt is comfortable as well. That's it.Gear for the glacier surface walkIf you are confirmed participant of the glacier surface walk, you need some durable gloves and long pants as the glacier surface is really sharp edged.

Peter From75,103The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | August 2014Time to share the AUGUST Edition of the PAC. As usual, I have sifted through each and every feed and I can promise a very interesting circle. Wonderful people taking wonderful photos. Add the circle right away! :)If you want to be a part of the next PAC, please follow the guidelines as stated below.This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word.2. ADD the  CIRCLE to your circles. 3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the next circle.4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is for requests. This Month's ThemeWill be announced in the next Announcement Post.The RestIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.How do I know if you added me to the circle?You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)Release DateThe next circle will be released end of September. Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.Cheers!2014-09-06 15:36:29360150188178

Gailen Mapes67,397Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera C - 3 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-03 10:19:17823114

Gailen Mapes66,656Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  C - 3 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 +2014-08-03 10:58:13782210

Laura Angelina198The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | JULY 2014 EDITION | Circle PostTime again to share this month's PAC. I had so much fun browsing through all the feeds and I must say that the circle is a MUST HAVE. So many cool photographers and versatile feeds – you can't go wrong adding this one!The PAC's are great successes and I want to thank everybody who participated in it thus far! Like my old APC Circles, the PAC is another great way to enhance your feed! I check EVERY SINGLE feed and guarantee that your stream will flood from quality images when you add this circle when released.Please note that I have reset (deleted) the June Circle and that the show begins from scratch again every month so to speak. This way I can assure you that the circle will be filled with INTERESTING,  FRESH content and COOL new photographers every time! :)How To Qualify To PAC CirclesIf you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the next PAC.The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now give away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). That's a USD 9,95 value (if you wanted to know).(For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC is of the same high quality!The Guidelines (a.k.a. RULES)Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.Note: Do NOT use the comments to thank each and every one if you have been tagged by someone. Such comments will be deleted. ONLY use the comments to ask for inclusion in the circle. If you want to express your gratitude towards someone, please do so in their feed.2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle (unless your name is clearly stated in the page title (example: Peter From Photography).3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)  4) Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still; members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).Please NoteIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for tha2014-07-10 08:07:50315106

Gailen Mapes65,733Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  C - 3 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 +2014-07-03 10:29:4383205

However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116934956

“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”  ~T.S. Eliot

Which one do you prefer?

I have found that my recent trips to both the Western Cape of South Africa and to Namibia have infused my artistic soul with wide, rich, swaths of color.  Normally, I’d have gone straight to a monochrome conversion after the regular processing maintenance, but recently I’ve been enjoying my little dance with colors. :)

I really fell in love with the Western Cape area.  I'm busy plotting my return there now.  Trying to fit it in to the schedule.  ;)  UPDATE:  Here is a behind the scenes clip of this location done by +Armand Dijcks :D

I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket.* ~ Sylvia Plath*

It seems like my life is a constant flow of changes, even when I am not trying to make anything change.  I suppose everyone's life is that way though.  If you think about it, how could anything possibly stay the same?  We may as well embrace the opportunity to try new things, visit new places, meet new people, even if it means we may sometimes fail.  I'm still toying with color, although I am not sure yet how I feel about it.  Perhaps it will always be that way - a place I can go to feel a little bit uneasy.  ;)

This is one of the beautiful locations from my project with +Armand Dijcks,  *Africa With Athena*.  Please visit the website and signup to be notified of updates.  I'm very excited about this  multifacetedproject. ... more »

“I like being on my own better than I like anything else, but I can't give up love. Maybe it's the tension between longing and aloneness that I need. My own funicular railway, holding in balance the two things most likely to destroy me.”  ~ Jeanette Winterson

This past summer I had the absolute pleasure of spending some time on the South Carolina Coast.  It wasn't nearly enough time, so I have a feeling my feet will be back in this sand soon - maybe next summer! :)

“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going” ~ Beverly Sills

I am really excited to publishing this new image today as it was captured during my recent trip to the beautiful Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland, with the very talented +Athena Carey. We have both been teasing you with various behind the scene images of our trip over the last couple of months, alluding to something exciting. And today I get to talk a little more about that something. Yay! 

So, please say hello to Light, Land & Sea, a joint venture between Athena and I, and our aim is to offer Unique Photographic Adventures. Pop over to http://bit.ly/lightlandandsea for more details and sign up to the newsletter, or continue reading…

What is this all about John? Photo tours, with a difference, that’s what! So what makes this so different? Quite simply because we are offering the best of both worlds – photography focused but so much more. You will have the opportunity to photograph some of the most beautiful locations, both well-known and special “hidden gems”, while simultaneously receiving insight into the heritage and history of these locations through expert local Guides. We believe that getting to know places in this way affects your reaction to them and results in photographs with more depth and intensity. In addition to all the great photographic opportunities we will have many cultural activities such as local entertainment, wine and whiskey tastings, cultural performances and the very best in authentic cuisine.

Our tours are aimed at everyone interested in photography, from the average ‘Point & Shooter’ who would like to learn to take better photos, to the experienced photographer looking for ways to refine his craft.

And guess where our first tour takes place? Yup, in my very own country of Ireland; along the stunning Causeway Coast, in June next year. You will photograph some of the most iconic locations such as the Giants Causeway, as well as some lesser known local gems, stay at the very best hotel, be transported in a luxury coach, be immersed in the history and folklore of the region by our expert Blue Badge Guide, enjoy dining at some of the finest restaurants, enjoy a private tour of Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, and so much more.

I am so excited about this new venture, and feel Athena and I are offering something truly unique. We cannot wait to share it with you. We will announce the details of the tour including opening it up for registration in the coming weeks. For now why not pop over to the Light, Land & Sea website and sign-up to the newsletter so you can be first to know.

PS You can also hear Athena talk about our venture during a recent Drink and Click Show hosted by Lotus Carroll and Juan Gonzalez.

I believe that your connection to a place profoundly affects your photography.  The deeper your understanding and attachment to a location is, the more impact your images will inherently have.  This is one of the reasons that photographers make breathtaking images of their own locales.
But when you are traveling on a tight schedule without local contacts and with little local knowledge, it's difficult to make these essential connections.  How can you get to know a place in the short span of a holiday?
+Light, Land and Sea a joint venture between my friend +John Dunne  and I, can help you to do exactly that.  We will be offering photographic tours of stunning locations, but unlike most photo workshops we intend to give you an authentic taste of each place.  While we travel to some of the most beautiful sites, well known icons and captivating, less known gems, we will be helping you withthe te... more »

I had the distinct pleasure of taking Athena out to one of my favorite locations about a month ago.  We had so much fun capturing the incredible trees in the water.  Of course for the best angle on the light we had to get waaay out into the water with our gear but our +Really Right Stuff tripods kept our cameras stable despite the attempts of the surging waves.  Needless to say we got absolutely soaked and had a blast. :)  ___I absolutely adore this BTS shot from +Alistair Nicol of the morning we spent shooting the dead trees in Botany Bay.  It's high on my list of special places in the world.  I have a BTS of Alistair from that morning too, that I'll post very soon.  :D

I need to do this myself. :)

It's not too late to submit your images, deadline is AUGUST 31. Support this cool project and remember that we ideally would love to donate profits to Doctors Without Borders, our favorite charity..... many of them are helping in Africa with the EBOLA outbreak.... ___I need to do this myself. :)

+Athena Carey knee deep in the swirling Atlantic capturing the old Frisco Pier on Cape Hatteras, OBX and sporting the brand new  +f-stop Loka UL..

During the +Mountains To Sea Workshops OBX Workshop we visited this pier hoping to capture it in all it's glory possibly for the last time. Hurricane Arthur was just forming to our South and we had seen demolition crews starting to work on it earlier in the week. Apparently a new company has bought it. I wonder what they plan to do.

Later today Athena arrives here in Charleston and we have a number of Low Country locations planned. Send some good weather vibes over will ya!

I've been gone from Ireland less than a day and miss it already! Still a lot of work to do to get where we want to be, but things are looking very good. :)

Thank you +John Dunne for taking this photo.  :D

+Athena Carey and I are continuing our trip around Northern Ireland, and so far it has been fantastic. Things are lining up so far beyond our expectations that we are finding it hard to contain our excitement.

Here's a quick iPhone snap from yesterday of Athena breathing in her surroundings standing upon the ancient stones of the Giants Causeway on the breathtaking Causeway Coastal Route.

And a little later on, during the hard slog of a walk back up to the carpark she mentioned how grateful she was for the weight saving offered by her new +f-stop Loka Ultralight :D 

After spending some time with Athena's Loka UL and comparing it directly to my own Loka I am very impressed with what Fstop have achieved. The reduction in weight is the most obvious thing but there are also a great many subtle refinements over the original Loka design that are very appealing. It's the classic Fstop attention to detail, which I love.

This is the Dark Hedges, a beautiful tree lined lane in rural Northern Ireland.  In just one week, I am going to be boarding a plane to return to Northern Ireland.  I have some very exciting work to do there with +John Dunne.  No doubt we will find ourselves on this beautiful tree lined road, as well as quite a few other gorgeous locations.  Want to come along?

Here's something pretty from my friend, +John Dunne along with a little bit of a tease about something interesting we have in the works.  ;)  

Vision is not enough; it must be combined with venture.  It is not enough to stare up the steps; we must step up the stairs." ~ Valclav Havel

It's hard to believe its been two years since I last visited the beautiful, otherworldly Causeway Coastline in the north of Ireland. I am excited to be returning at the beginning of June for 6 days of non-stop photography. Even more exciting then that prospect is that I will be shooting it with my good friend +Athena Carey. We have some very exciting plans in the works and we really cannot wait to start sharing them with you all. Wow that is an awful lot of excitement :-)

This particular image is from a location we will definitely be visiting; a tiny little harbour called Ballintoy. It offers some stunning views along the rugged northern coastline, and the most expedient way to access the iconic Elephant Rock, another location we shall be visiting.

Look at this cutie.  Just right for mirror-less camera users.  Just right for all the accessories I carry around too I think.  :D

For all your compact valuables, f-stop is excited to reveal the latest member of our ICU family, the Micro Tiny. This pint size ICU is small enough to fit just about anywhere. Whether in your existing f-stop bag, or standalone with a strap, this little guy is available in the US now and will be in Europe late this month.

What would you put in the Tiny? Let us know below in the comments.

“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”  ~T.S. Eliot

Which one do you prefer?

I have found that my recent trips to both the Western Cape of South Africa and to Namibia have infused my artistic soul with wide, rich, swaths of color.  Normally, I’d have gone straight to a monochrome conversion after the regular processing maintenance, but recently I’ve been enjoying my little dance with colors. :)

I really fell in love with the Western Cape area.  I'm busy plotting my return there now.  Trying to fit it in to the schedule.  ;)  UPDATE:  Here is a behind the scenes clip of this location done by +Armand Dijcks :D

You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
