The Weather Channel3,014,915*Upload your photos to this Event on 9/19 or using the #sunsetday hashtag in a public post to celebrate #sunsetday!* Join us for an exciting 24-hour event as we send summer into the sunset in global fashion. We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com. Other favorites will be posted and rotated through as the cover photo on both +The Weather Channel and the +Google+ Photos  Google+ page. Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1.

Jeff Sullivan2,007,576+Lori Hibbett and I and I will try to be shooting on the rocks by around 6:30 to capture golden hour light. Sunset is at 7:18, so the best sky color will be from then until 7:40 or so. Then we'll have some "blue hour" twilight for another 20-30 minutes, the light painting can start by 8, and stars will be gradually strengthening from then through 8:30 for night shots. If we're getting some good light and reflections off the beach making light orbs and so on, we can shoot to 9 or whenever we get thirsty. No problem if you're late given work, school and weekday traffic, we should be able to stay entertained shooting in the changing light for at least 2-2.5 hours.  We'll go to a bar or restaurant for another hour or two after that. This free social event is open to all; you're welcome to bring your photographer friends (on Flickr, Meetup, 500px, from your local photography club, etc.) We're looking forward to seeing those of you we've met out shooting in recent years, and meeting those of you we haven't shot with yet! We'd like to explore the area known as Hospitals Reef or Draper Villas, the rocks adjacent to Coast Boulevard Park 0.7 miles south of La Jolla Cove (see map).  We'll also shoot El Matador State Beach in Malibu April 11 and Little Corona Beach April 14.Sunset Photowalk La Jolla Monday April 152013-04-15 18:30:0030

Blast from the G+ Past
This album was created on G+ by Google, from photos included in my +Blogger blog posts from 2006 through 2011.  When I posted this album on August 29, 2011 I had 3403 contacts and the post received 90 +1s and over 30 shares.  G+ was truly a vibrant community then.  Yesterday with over 2,000,000 contacts, ranked #52 on G+ among individuals in the U.S. by +CircleCount (http://www.circlecount.com/p/+JeffreySullivan?), most active post had 42 +1s and no post had more than 1 share.  

Yesterday on +Facebook, +Robert Scoble said,

Images from my Blog
Here's an album Google+ auto-created from posts to my blog at www.MyPhotoGuides.com.
https://plus.google.com/photos/107459220492917008623/albums/5110510049163163345

I thought it was a regular Picasa album, so I started to delete duplicates... then after the first few dozen, I actually read the warning that doing so would also delete the photos from my blog. Oops.

Feel free to share these if you like (thanks!). I shared the album early on when I first joined Google+ and had few circle contacts, so few people have seen them so far.___Blast from the G+ Past

Having invested a chunk of my life to the community, to the platform, I hope that +Yonatan Zunger and the Google engineering teams can resurrect G+, but I don't think that the core strategic problems or resolutions lie with +YouTube or other Google product integration, as the recent post by +Bradley Horowitz seemed to say.  

Removing integration would be a required step towards dropping G+ or hiding the functionality inside of something else, so perhaps Scoble's thoughts offer some valuable insight.

I'm still rooting for Google+, but actions speak louder than words, and I'm not seeing much action, much life left in it.

Revisiting the Original G+
It's nice to see the engagement and dialog that was present and possible early on on G+, like this post from August 30, 2011.  What might have become of G+ if content, engagement and friendships had been allowed to grow organically?

This was one of three albums of photos I assembled from a month of travels around Turkey the year before, in Istanbul, along the coast, and to ancient sites away from the coast.  The trip was a wonderful experience, fueling my desire to travel more as time and finances permit.

Istanbul, Turkey
I've been to Europe, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, so I wanted to try something a little more adventurous this time. I heard a fair amount of warnings before the trip (given all the propaganda Americans have been fed over the past 10 years, plus State Department warnings), but the people were very welcoming and generous, especially when the car broke down in a stone village which had more tractors than cars, with no one around who spoke English.

For some reason you won't get comment boxes on individual photos if you click on the photos below; you have to go straight to the album this way: https://plus.google.com/photos/107459220492917008623/albums/5646672037554147281

Annual Perseid Meteor Shower Coming Aug 11-14
The earth passes through the comet debris that causes the Perseid meteor shower for a few weeks, but the activity peaks around the night of August 12-13.  The meteor activity is high for a while on either side of the peak so it can be productive to look in the August 11-14 timeframe.

Perseid Meteor Shower 2013 - Time-lapse Astrophotography
Over six minutes of footage from recent nights, set to the InFiction remix of David Bowie's "Let's Dance", as featured in the recent Kia commercial. 

For best results and to see the most meteors, be sure and watch it on YouTube and use the option at the bottom to watch it in HD, either 720P or 1080P HD resolution.  

I've given this a few hours head start on G+... +87 so far... now I'll try it on another site and let's see which results in the most response.___Annual Perseid Meteor Shower Coming Aug 11-14

I'm still getting used to the new Collections functionality.  Some of my shares to Collects get a lot of visibility and engagement, now most seem not to.  The same is true for my G+ post through too, so I'll try and save a few more posts to Collections and see if that results in anything positive.

Winter in Wine Country
Winter is a great time for photographers to visit wine country.  The symmetry of the rows in the vineyards can add patterns or leading lines to your compositions.  If you're into wine it's also a great time to chat with winemakers, as their Fall harvest is tucked safely away into barrels and the vines are dormant.  As Spring arrives, wild mustard often colors the space between the vines.  

In California we're particularly lucky to have a wide selection of wine regions, producing an incredible variety of world class wines.  Most wineries offer hours when they're open for tasting, and with many of the wine regions lying not far from the Bay Area or Los Angeles, finding wines you like can be a fun weekend pursuit.

I met many of the contributors in my travels and/or through photowalks.  This would have been a different, probably harder and less fun project without the camaraderie of meeting new and old friends along the way.  Both the photowalks I announced on G+, and G+ as a communication platform in general, facilitated that process, so I owe Google employees +Brian Rose and +Gerard Sanz thanks for their encouragement of my photowalks when Google+ was growing rapidly in 2011 and 2012.  

I'm not sure what my next big project will be, but I ask for your input on a few possibilities over on this blog post.

Clouds from Hurricane Dolores off the coast of Mexico caught the early morning light last Sunday.  It rained 16 hours on this night, very odd for California in July.

Yosemite With Pride
We were in Yosemite to celebrate my mothers's birthday last week. I don't think that she had eaten at the +The Ahwahnee Hotel before, so we treated her to a meal there as a special treat during the family reunion week.  Since it was a special occasion, I brought my last bottle of '98 +Pride Mountain Vineyards merlot, and we enjoyed it prior to heading over for dinner.  Then it turned out that The Ahwahnee had the 2012 Pride merlot, so we tried that with dinner!  Although separated by 14 years of age, both wines displayed Pride's excellent site and microclimate, their ability to grow great grapes and not screw them up in the winemaking process.  I miss the place; I need to get back up there soon.

Catch the 10% Crescent Moon Setting Tonight
Astronomers are looking forward to the end of this month when Venus will appear in the sky very close to Jupiter.  But the two bright planets will be dancing with the crescent moon for the next three nights.  Tonight in mid northern latitudes the crescent moon of about 9% full will be best caught to the west during twilight around 9 pm, right before it descends into the thicker air and haze by the horizon.

For the following two nights, the moon will be brighter and set increasingly later, forming a triangle with Jupiter and Venus.

I photographed a similar event earlier this year, when the moon set with Venus and Mars nearby.  I posted a time-lapse video and photographs of that event to my blog:

From The Early Days of G+
This album first shared on August 11, 2011 only received 51 +1s, but it had 58 shares!  Now an album is lucky to get 1/4 of the distribution of a photo post, and photo posts do not get full distribution to your contacts who opted in to see them.  

The site seemed to be much more interesting under the original algorithms.  Perhaps human brain chemistry favors the unexpected, the pleasant surprise which is more likely to come form people NOT related to you as a previous friend?  That would be terribly inconvenient for a network being designed to determine and mainly distribute content to your friends and social connections that they feel you can market to.

How to find moonbows in Yosemite
Blog post:
Chasing Moonbows in Yosemite Valley at Night
http://activesole.blogspot.com/2008/05/chasing-moonbow-in-yosemite-valley-at.html

Trying out the new Collections feature...

I should explain a bit more about how you can find the Yosemite night "moonbow" conditions depicted in this image I referenced yesterday. Since rainbows occur with consistent and predictable geometry, astronomer Don Olson of the University of Texas is able to predict the days and times when the full moon will be in the right place to create night rainbows (lunar rainbows, "moonbows") in the mist of Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls: http://uweb.txstate.edu/~do01/

For a few more examples of Yosemite moonbow photos, here are the posts on my blog from moonbow photo shoots I pursued in 2008 and 2009: http://activesole.blogspot.com/search?q=moonbow My shooting and post-processing tools have come a long way since then, but at least you can see some of the angles and compositions available if you run around the Valley on a moonbow night.
I've used this image to start a Night Photos album, which I'll add to as time permits and as I capture new shots. These first 7 shots in the album were all taken with my Canon 5D mark II using the EF 16-35mm f/2.8 lens (at 6400 ISO for dark sky Milky Way shots, as low as ISO 800 for landscape shots lit by the full moon). My Canon 40D only shoots well up to ISO 1600, so on that I have to use the 24mm f/1.4 lens, which effectively offers a much more limited 38mm field of view. One of the shots is another moonbow photo, formed by the full moon shining on rain shortly after sunset, captured when I visited California's Anza Borrego State Park earlier this year to catch the moon rise.

Don Olson already has his predictions up for 2012, so you can plan ahead for a Yosemite trip to capture this unique spectacle.___How to find moonbows in Yosemite

They seem to get greatly demoted distribution now.  That's a shame, since that punishes and discourages the sharing of content to G+.

Perseid Meteor Shower: My first popular YouTube video
None of my (arguably better) videos have close to it since.

Trying out the new Collections feature...

Over 72,500 Views on YouTube in 9 Days?
Wow, my first video to go (somewhat) viral on YouTube!  Of course it's the first one I've set to music.  Maybe that should tell me something.

In case you missed it the first time around, I should clarify that to see the meteors, it's important to watch it in 720P HD resolution and full screen.  You can select both at the bottom of the video window: http://youtu.be/vroLnrBhbmk?hd=1

This footage was from 2009; I'm working on an a new video to show the Perseid meteor shower in the following years.___Perseid Meteor Shower: My first popular YouTube video

Lunar Eclipse Setting Over Sierra Nevada, October 2014
I've posted the full story of the pursuit of lunar eclipse photos on this night on my blog, including a shot of Uranus next to the red, eclipsed moon: http://activesole.blogspot.com/2015/06/lunar-eclipse-photography-october-2014.html

G+ is being "streamlined" lately in so many ways: circle shares are gone, G+ account links are gone from the Google header, ripples are gone, post share statistics have been removed from the API.  I've seen activity on my posts here decline to 1/4 to 1/10th the rate of only a few months ago.  Let's connect wherever else you're active, so we can stay in touch in spite of any more G+ "streamlining"!  Please feel free to post your links in the comments below.

I've been a huge fan of the feature advancement and engagement on G+ for the past 4 years, so while I have to view feature erosion with some concern, I'll keep posting here as long as it has a pulse.

Howling at the Moon
Chasing the full moon and lunar eclipse across three locations from sunset to sunrise.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover the blue planet Uranus next to the red, eclipsed moon in my telephoto shots: http://activesole.blogspot.com/2015/06/lunar-eclipse-photography-october-2014.html
+The Huffington Post UK published one of my photos from this night, the composite image that I entered into the 2015 Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest, so I decided to show some of the other photos from the night as well.

This is my third blog post today to my "old" blog at: www.MyPhotoGuides.com +Royal Museums Greenwich

Exploring Ghost Town Interiors
We had some amazing weather in Bodie a couple of weeks ago, and we got into some areas that we've never been in before... http://activesole.blogspot.com/2015/06/exploring-ghost-town-interiors-bodie.html

I ran out of space to show you photos in the blog post, but the new +dripthat app is perfect for visual storytelling, so I put more images there: http://bit.ly/1dhaequ  It's on IOS for now, with Android support coming soon.  #dripthat   #travel   #blogging   #photography

Top 10 California Parks, #1
With eroded badlands, slot canyons, wildflowers in the spring, and dark skies for night photography, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is worthy of anyone's California travel bucket list.  The adjacent community of Borrego Springs has been recognized by the +IDA - International Dark-Sky Association as a Dark Sky Community for its efforts to preserve visibility of the night sky.  Although many people think of the cooler, fall through spring months as best for desert travel, the nights around the new moon dates in the summer are particularly good for Milky Way photography.

New DripThat Storytelling App Shares Experiences
There's a new sharing paradigm coming. like mixing the best elements of messaging with social media.  Consider the new app +dripthat, released a few days ago.  On one hand it's like messaging on steroids, with strong distribution control, so everyone on the distribution won't get notified for every single response.  

You can seamlessly mix photos and video clips, and publish over time, "dripping" out the moments you're sharing over a certain time period.  Existing social networks often seem to demote the  distribution of album posts, which sucks for anyone trying to tell the story of their day, and what percentage of your audience will actually click through to an album?  On DripThat they don't have to, the moments you share are seamlessly shown to them.

Dripthat is a new social network and app that lets you easily share photos and videos with family and friends. With Dripthat, you share little "drips," small collections of photos and videos.

Here's another shot from the cool stormy conditions we enjoyed in Bodie last Sunday.

It rained for an hour immediately before this shot, but last Sunday was easily one of the coolest workshop sessions we've had in Bodie (and they're all pretty cool).  Can't wait to show you more!

This was my last shot before the rain started around 8 pm last Sunday, but the overall night was amazing!
