Eric Raeber1,171,058I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Dubie Bacino116,401Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (14th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU , connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara.

Gailen Mapes71,883Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 22 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-22 12:04:03153203

The Wave

We had a chance to visit Valley of Fire State Park during our visit to Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. What a wonderful day for a hike with some visiting friends and our local "guide" +John Getchel - it was so great to finally meet you and +Pam Boling on this trip!

Sorry I've been absent most of the last couple of weeks, I've had a project hanging over my head and that is now finished so I can enjoy my time here again!

One of the best sunsets I've seen around here in a long time - this time from Marshall Beach in San Francisco. +Heike Skamper was here to visit from Germany and got me out to the beach that evening. It was foggy when we arrived and we weren't expecting much for sunset, but we sure were in for a wonderful surprise! Thank you Heike and thank you to Mother Nature for the wonderful show!

Christmas Cactus

These little beauties have been brightening up my kitchen window for more than 6 weeks now. The flowers mostly hang straight down, so I had to put the pot on it's side so I could see them better. I hope they brighten up your day a little bit too! Enjoy your weekend everyone...

Checking Us Out

We saw this beautiful little red grey fox a few weeks ago at golf as we finished our round. She paused briefly to check us out before continuing on her way. Several of these beauties live at the course and I believe this one has the most lush coat. Maybe I'll see her again tomorrow...
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!
(Note:  After a closer look, I think this is a grey fox. They often still have a substantial amount of red on them.)

Baobab Sunrise

I haven't posted one of these in a while, I just love the Baobab trees that we saw in Madagascar. They are very unique and very photogenic! We had such a magical morning with them...

The Wave

We had a chance to visit Valley of Fire State Park during our visit to Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. What a wonderful day for a hike with some visiting friends and our local "guide" +John Getchel - it was so great to finally meet you and +Pam Boling on this trip!

Sorry I've been absent most of the last couple of weeks, I've had a project hanging over my head and that is now finished so I can enjoy my time here again!

Part I: Caged
The Hall Beyond Time: A Saga of Alien Abduction in Three Parts

She felt frozen between ticks of a clock.  _They_ came and went.  Some stopped and stared; others passed without a glance.  She never felt tired or hungry; never slept.  She never felt joy, or hope, or anticipation.  There was no true light, or darkness.

But there was motion.  Beings and groups from every corner of the galaxy came and went.  Styles of clothing and adornment changed and evolved.  Her...container...took on different electromagnetic properties, and she somehow sensed other changes she could not quite perceive.

And then, there was an Idea...

I'm surprised that these are still blooming in the backyard at this time of year. Always liked these flowers, but they have such a busy background for photographs, so I brought one inside. Love the isolation, so colorful...

The Madagascan long-eared owl is the largest owl on the island and typically lives in heavily wooded areas. We found this one in Andisibe-Mantadia National Park very high up in the trees around sunset. Very beautiful birds and owls are one of my most favorites!

Last Color of Fall

Most of the trees have lost their leaves, but a few trees were still hanging on to those precious leaves and scattering that last bit of fall color. From a visit to Uvas Canyon a couple of weeks ago. Might have to find some time to head back there with the recent rains, I'm betting the river is running a lot fuller now. Enjoy your week everyone!

Soggy Deer

We stopped by on a rainy afternoon and saw this shy and soggy mule deer checking us out at Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Denver. What a wonderful wildlife area they've created there now after it's troubled past. Well worth a visit and it's close to downtown. (Here is a link if you want to have a quick read about the transformation of the area: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Mountain_Arsenal_National_Wildlife_Refuge )  Wonderful week everyone!

Step Pyramid of Djoser

Located in the Saqqara, the earliest Egyptian pyramids were step pyramids like this one from the Third Dynasty of Pharaohs, built in 27BC. The Ancient Egyptians started building "true pyramids" with smooth sides in the Fourth Dynasty.  Ok, enough for the history lesson, can you find all five men on the side of this pyramid???

Boing, Boing, Boing...

The sifakas in Madagascar were the most fun to watch and we were always hoping they would come down out of the trees. They have such an unusual way that they dance along instead of walking on all fours as the other lemurs do. This one is a Verreaux's Sifaka from Berenty Preserve. (Here is a link to a short video to give you an idea of how they move: The Dancing Verreaux's Sifakas - Berenty, Madagascar HD )

Dreaming of Sunset

I've had a blurry, tough kind of day and this one really struck my mood. Just goofing around while waiting for the sunset drama to happen a couple of weeks ago. Have a great weekend everyone!

Busy Intersection

This one evokes memories of warm days gliding along the Nile - from our trip to Egypt a couple of years ago. Life looks simple and enjoyable for these folks, maybe riding into town or to the market for supplies. They certainly always had a smile for us everywhere we went...

Down the Road

I was working on a project the other day and came across this photo. If you are ever on a road trip through Utah along Interstate 70, be sure to stop at all of the scenic overlooks if you have time. There are some great viewpoints. Enjoy your week everyone!

Orange Glow

One of the best sunsets I've seen around here in a long time - this time from Marshall Beach in San Francisco. +Heike Skamper was here to visit from Germany and got me out to the beach that evening. It was foggy when we arrived and we weren't expecting much for sunset, but we sure were in for a wonderful surprise! Thank you Heike and thank you to Mother Nature for the wonderful show!

I was invited by +Johannes S. +Jose Manuel Sánchez Gaitero +Barbara Matthews and +Scott Thomas. Thanks for the invite, it was a lot of fun.

Another day up before dawn to catch the sunrise at Rocky Mountain National Park. This morning, it was very, very cold and windy, so no smooth lake reflections. Still a beautiful scene, this one from the pre-dawn blue - if you look closely you can still see a few stars in the sky. Have a great week everyone!

Hallett Peak

I love interesting rock formations and Hallett Peak was one of my favorites from several different vantage points during our recent visit to Rocky Mountain National Park. A few inches of snow gave it some nice contrast as well. This viewpoint was on our hike to Dream Lake.  Happy Hump Day everyone...

Hallett Peak

I love interesting rock formations and Hallett Peak was one of my favorites from several different vantage points during our recent visit to Rocky Mountain National Park. A few inches of snow gave it some nice contrast as well. This viewpoint was on our hike to Dream Lake.  Happy Hump Day everyone...

Nothing but color as I used the zoom on my telephoto lens for this shot. What a beautiful building, the Palais des Congrès in Montreal, has amazing colored windows that make the place come alive with bright colors every afternoon. Have a wonderful weekend everyone...

Scarface

This beauty was resting in the shade and we almost missed him as we drove through the area. They really blend in to their surroundings, but he poked his head up as a group of baboons went by. From Chitabe Camp in Botswana. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Fire in the Sky

We are not normally up at this time of day, but +Alex Lapidus and I made an effort to be up for sunrise each day while up in Rocky Mountain National Park last week. We couldn't believe our eyes as we arrived at Brainard Lake, the sky literally seemed to catch fire. 
Enjoy your week everyone!

Moose!

We had been really hoping to see moose today and it finally happened as we were getting ready to leave Brainard Lake after our sunrise shoot! (More photos coming on that amazing shoot soon...) We got a little snow around the area last night, you might notice there's still some snow in his antlers. What a great morning...

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

What a lovely day we had at this beautiful lighthouse in Nova Scotia. I love the rocky spit of land where this lighthouse lives, just the kind of terrain where you'd expect to find one. You wouldn't know it from this, but in a couple of hours the sky would be completely clear after dinner and we were able to get this shot:

My What Pretty Eyes You Have!

Hope you enjoy this beautiful Eurasian Eagle Owl that they had at the County Fair a couple of months ago. Owls are some of my most favorite birds and I was delighted to see this species that doesn't live in North America.

Whirling Dervish

I saw a post a couple of weeks ago about the Whirling Dervish show she saw in Instanbul. I went looking for a photo of a similar show we saw in Cairo. Very fun evening - the performer "turns" or whirls endlessly while manipulating skirts and hats in a colorful display.

Rush Hour on Baobab Avenue

The start of rush hour on the road to Morondova, #Madagascar .  Actually, folks had been walking and riding past in their ox carts for over an hour at this point. It was market day in town and this is the coolest time of the day to get there. They will probably wait until dusk to start the long trek home, for many it is a 2 - 3 hour walk.

Willow Tree in the Round

I was just having a bit of fun with another technique inspired by Pep Ventosa and Stephen D'Agostino. Take a series of photos all the way around a subject and then layer them together in PS with different opacities and blend modes until you get something you like. (This one looks like there are 20 or more park benches to sit on. I think next time I need to find a tree with less stuff around it.) Hope you enjoy this bit of whimsy... 

I know I'm late for #unsharpsaturday but I hope these wonderful curators won't mind too much or maybe save it until next week. ( +Unsharp Saturday v2.0 +Alex Lapidus +Julianne Bockius +Jetski Jones +Patrice Christian +Nadia Pewinski )

Shining Light From Above

+Alex Lapidus and I couldn't believe our eyes when we came out of the restaurant after dinner - there was the Milky Way right over the Peggy's Cove lighthouse! We had to climb down some rocks in the dark to get back to our earlier vantage point so we were out of the path of the bright spotlight on the lighthouse, a challenge in the dark, but worth the effort. It is so amazing to be able to see the night sky every evening when it's clear, definitely not possible or dark enough in our metropolis!
Have a great weekend everyone...

Thanks again to +Darryl Van Gaal for all of the help over the last couple of years as this shot would not have existed without his guidance!
