Gailen Mapes65,741Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  M - 8 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 +2014-07-08 10:28:43134228CC G+

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 Feburary 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 Mapes2014-03-08 12:34:05146326CC G+

Angry Bird!

I welcome any ideas for a caption on this one 

The facial shape and large "brows" sure does give this bald eagle an almost human expression of anger.

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Seward Highway, Alaska.

Have a great weekend...

Shooting at the Sheraton Villas wet edge pool this evening at sunset n Fiji.

I wanted to use a long exposure for tonight's sunset - this was a bit of a guessing game with exposure as the sun was constantly popping in and out of the clouds. I knew if I got it right it would be pretty cool - or it could fail.... 

I had hoped for the sun to pop into the clear sky right at the end of my exposure so that it would record sharply and yet the water and clouds would display the movement during the two and a half minute exposure. Everything played out as hoped and I got the result I was hoping for.

The views were nothing short of spectacular as we cruised out of Spitsbergen in perfect conditions on our journey North East to the Arctic sea ice in search of polar bears.

My home out on the high Arctic ice north east of Spitsbergen for the past few weeks.

Here we have tied up to an ice flow for the night - although the sun never set 

We had a fantastic photographic expedition with great photography opportunities every day - thanks to Rinie van Meurs for his amazing wildlife tracking abilities and immense local knowledge! It feels strange being back in civilization after so much pristine solitude off Spitsbergen.

Thanks also to all of my guests - you came from all corners of the globe as strangers and left as close friends making this journey so special.

The hunt is on....  Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska.

This bear certainly has her focus on the salmon in the lower right of the frame.... The water was a little deep to make it an easy catch and the fish got away this time!

I chose f6.3 to give me a little more depth of field and by bumping the ISO up to 800 I could still get a fast shutter speed to freeze the action in the late evening light.

A large bear glows in the backlit evening light, Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska.

I love the halo effect on the fur and the glow in the golden grass and yet full detail is still maintained in the bear as well as great catchlight in the eyes. 

The dynamic range and detail from the new Nikon D810 is really quite astounding!

Dancing bear cubs. 

I am LOVING the new Nikon D810!!!

A couple of very cute and small spring cubs playing on the beach last night at Silver Salmon Creek, Alaska.

This was shot almost directly into the sun and looked like a total silhouette yet I could still pull out some detail in the cubs fur!!

I really enjoyed photographing this Japanese Tepanyaki dining room on a recent shoot for the Westin Beijing Chaoyang in China. The contrast between the red furniture, the bamboo light and the black walls make for a dramatic photo. This image was captured using only the ambient light in the restaurant.

It's great to be home for a few days :-)

I was very excited to check out my +SteadiDrone  which had arrived with the courier whilst I was away.  

Well I wasn't disappointed - what a fantastic piece of kit!  

Its like a work of art - all that beautiful carbon and anodised red - every man's dream machine!

Thanks to +Duran De Villiers  from Steadidrone for the custom work so that I can start flying the Nikon Coolpix A.   Thanks also to Carl for the work he has put into the customised camera live-view system.

Today was my first time ever flying a drone (apart from a little bit of time on a simulator).  

The Steadidrone QU4D felt amazing to fly, very smooth and quiet yet responsive.  I have quite a learning curve ahead but I am very excited about the possibilities and have some great ideas in mind.  My next trip is only acouple o... more »

One I have this mastered I will be looking to get the D810 in the air :-)

Post below your cool ideas for great stills from the drone...

"The Great Wall of China"
Another short climb and there was an incredible view down the other side...
The setting sun fired out the "god rays" and beautifully lit the layers upon layers of mountains sprawled before us.

After all of the stories of smog and massive crowds of visitors at all of the "good" vantage points on The Great Wall it was quite surreal to have this totally to ourselves in complete silence... In Awe!

"The Great Wall of China"

And then the magic began, the sun dropped and started to turn gold as it made its way to the horizon lighting up the layers of low cloud.

We were treated to an incredible show from mother nature whilst marveling at the man made wonder of the "Great Wall" in this epic remote location.

It was a very spiritual experience and one that I will never forget!
It actually reminded me of the scene in the movie "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" when "Sean O'Connell" - the Time photographer talks about the camera getting in the way of the experience - but I still had to push the button ;-)

Between commercial shoots in Beijing I managed to make some time to visit The Great Wall of China.

Rather than visit the normal tourist spots which are very crowded at this time of year we chose to drive then hike with a guide from a remote local village to a spectacular section called "Wang Jing Lou".

It was a grueling steep hike in blistering heat for the first hour followed by a hands and feet - and sometimes knees climb up the mountainside for another hour to reach this spectacular location. 

The views were spectacular and we had it completely to ourselves. It is a very rugged area and the wall is unrestored so had an incredible amount of character and mystique to it. I found myself in awe just wondering the sights that this wall had witnessed...

It felt strange to see myself featured in a recent advertisement for Lowepro as I spend most of my time on the other side of the camera. 

This image was taken by Jason Law Photography whilst I was "commuting" with my cameras onboard - working on location in Savusavu, Fiji.

I have had a long standing relationship with Lowepro so it was cool to see the ad.

Tonight's rare sight of a spectacular sunset in Beijing, China.

Even the locals were all out photographing it on their phones... 

After my first two days in Beijing the heavy smog lifted (it had been limiting visibility to around 100 metres) and we were treated to a great sunset - and could even see further than the next building 

I managed to get security to let me onto the service area on the rooftop of the Westin Chaoyang Hotel where we are working - only to find that there were still windows - and very dirty ones at that from the normal Beijing smog. I used a large aperture to throw the dirty window and it's reflections as far out of focus as possible and managed to get a pretty reasonable shot through the glass.

I have done a lot of research online and really liked the SteadiDrone from South Africa.
I talked with them about my needs - I am new to drones so I really wanted to start with an affordable and reliable system to get my Nikon Coolpix A in the air - and to get to grips with flying (this is an amazing little camera by the way!)

Shooting at the Sheraton Villas wet edge pool this evening at sunset n Fiji.

I wanted to use a long exposure for tonight's sunset - this was a bit of a guessing game with exposure as the sun was constantly popping in and out of the clouds. I knew if I got it right it would be pretty cool - or it could fail.... 

I had hoped for the sun to pop into the clear sky right at the end of my exposure so that it would record sharply and yet the water and clouds would display the movement during the two and a half minute exposure. Everything played out as hoped and I got the result I was hoping for.

Earlier in the week I was shooting aerials right throughout the Mamanuca and Yasawa Isands in Fiji.

En-route to the Yasawas we had some interesting weather - there were high winds where we were flying, low hazy mist over the water and incredible cloud formations up high!  And within a few minutes it was all gone.

Whilst out on Nanuku Island (Fiji) a couple of evenings ago, we could see back to an amazingly dramatic rain storm passing over the mainland.  The model on this shoot - Denise Keller - happened to be an amazing talent at SUP yoga which made for a very dramatic image.

The incredible dynamic range of the Nikon D800e makes it possible to pick up all of the detail in her swimsuit which was quite a feat considering how strongly backlit Denise was!

I was fortunate enough to go to the premier of Thundercloud this evening on the big outdoor screen at Denarau Marina, Fiji. 
This is a documentary on Cloudbreak and featuring one of the best days in surfing history which took place two years ago today - and I also had the good fortune of being there as well. It brought back very exciting memories and here is one of my shots from that day.

Shooting at the exclusive Nanuku Resort & Spa on the Coral Coast of Fiji with Denise Keller.

I wanted to capture this image of Denise chilling out in the stylish lounger from directly above. 
To achieve this I attached my D800e to a long carbon pole and raised it above the hanging chair in a position I couldn't have reached any other way. The chair was swinging and there was no space above... I then used my CamRanger to control the focus and exposure and trigger the shutter remotely from my HP tablet. 

This technology combined with the fantastic model made my job so much easier! 

Nikon D800e. Nikkor 24mm f1.4 lens. 
Controlled and triggered wirelessly via CamRanger and HP Slate.

Arctic Aurora.

The ever changing shapes and mystical beauty of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) never fails to astound me!  I took so many photos on this particular night near Wiseman, Alaska and every one is unique.  This was in the early stages of the auroras build up before it danced all over the sky.

You can see the photographer on the lower right of the frame which gives you the feeling of just how small we are in the scheme of things.

CHECK OUT THE TIME-LAPSE that I took this same night: http://bit.ly/1i1R8zF 

We are going to be hosting a northern lights, dogsledding and Arctic landscapes photo tour in March 2016.  

Email info@cmphoto.co.nz soon if you are interested as numbers will be very limited.  All participants must have a great sense of adventure, be up for a life changing experience and have the desire to be amazed!!

A large muskox stops to give me the eye through the falling snow near Nome, Alaska.  
In previous seasons I have photographed the musk ox on the high peaks feeding on the moss along wind blown ridges.  With a lower than normal snowfall this year they were foraging in the low lying coastal areas where the vegetation was still able to be grazed upon.

(thanks Russell MacLaughlin for bringing this to my attention)

I wouldn't normally air my thoughts on here but it doesn't get any more blatant than this - my image has been posted on NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC of all places by a woman called Elis Paluoja claiming it be be her own and later even stating how she took it? 

Here is the link: http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/photos/3646885/

I would love to see this type of thing stopped!

The real story of how I took this shot can be found here: http://bit.ly/1nBYu1v

I hope you have enjoyed the video and images and thanks so much for your ongoing support :-)

The people of Otjikandero live in the the traditional Himba ways and the village is also an active orphanage for the outlying areas. These stunning young children stole my heart.

A spectacular show of Northern Lights (aurora borealis) over the small village of Wiseman above the Arctic Circle in Alaska.  This was the night of the full moon and it almost appears daylight.  Many people will avoid moonlit nights when chasing Aurora but I feel it adds another dimension by allowing you to include interest with foreground subjects.
  
Nothing wrong with a bit of moonshine in the Arctic cold  :-)

The intensity and movement of a showing like this is quite overwhelming and hard to convey in a still image.  

To get a better feel of what the experience is like check out the timelapse that I took this same night: http://bit.ly/1i1R8zF

Angry Bird!

I welcome any ideas for a caption on this one 

The facial shape and large "brows" sure does give this bald eagle an almost human expression of anger.

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Seward Highway, Alaska.

Have a great weekend...

The sun rises over the golden sand dunes of Sossusvlei, Namibia.

It is an amazing time of day as the ever shifting sands light up and cast their fast moving shadows across the arid landscape.

An early start is essential (around 4.30am) to be on location in time and the magic light show is finished by 8 am as the sun rises high and the shadows disappear.

NIKON PRO Magazine showcased one of my lion images from the "Car-L" project on their latest cover - along with a feature inside, I am thrilled :-). 

Nikon Pro is published by Nikon Europe.

If you haven't seen the video, check it out here: http://bit.ly/1nBYu1v

It was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to more adventures with Car-L this year!
