Landscape Photography Show13,712*LPS Event #100: Straight to My Heart* *NOTE: This will be the FIRST event using the new G+ user interface. Your patience is appreciated and please report any problems or glitches.* *THEME: Straight Lines* One of the most powerful tools in photography composition is the straight line. Share a photo with a crooked horizon line and everyone cringes!! Share a photo with a strong leading line to the subject of the photo and you get rave reviews. Straight lines both horizontal and vertical are VERY powerful. They represent strength and boldness. Curved lines are more soothing and tranquil. Straight lines that intersect can show chaos. Several parallel straight lines represent power and order. *For this event, we want to see your use of straight lines. In the comments tell us about the straight lines that are used and why you used them. Be sure to include the location.* *Some links that may be of help:* http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-use-leading-lines-for-better-compositions/ https://photographylife.com/straightening-the-horizon-and-aligning-lines http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/2759/visual-design-using-line-in-photography/ *Special Rules:* 1. Share your landscape photograph that displays the theme. 2. In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located? What were you trying to achieve? What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them? We want to know the details about your photograph. THE COMMENT IS REQUIRED. You will have 1 hour after posting your entry to include an appropriate comment. Those entries without an appropriate comment one hour after posting WILL BE REMOVED. 3. Other participants will be discussing on your post and asking you questions. Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4. This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.

Landscape Photography Show13,712*LPS Event #50: The Perfect Horizon* This event will focus on a landscape photograph with "The Perfect Horizon".  It will also review our lessons from the Horizontal Rule of Thirds.  What makes a perfect horizon? 1) *Level* - The horizon MUST be level to the eye especially if it's water.  Landscapes with mountains and jagged horizons seem natural to our eye and we don't worry about it being level.  If the landscape is all land and there is a gentle slope to the horizon, then you are really challenged as to how do you make the viewer's eye sense that you got it right.  The easiest way to to incorporate a vertical element such as a tree along one of the vertical rules of third lines.  We know the tree is straight so the viewer's eye will think that you got it right. It's always great to get the horizon level in the camera but if you didn't, most post processing software has the ability to straighten the horizon for you.  Make use of these wonderful tools. 2) Place the horizon on the upper or lower horizontal rule of thirds lines.  This means that you have 1/3 sky and 2/3 land or 2/3 sky and 1/3 land. This tends to give us a more interesting photograph.  A horizon split right down the middle is often boring. 3) Know when to break the rules.  For example, a landscape with awesome reflections might look great if split down the middle. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "The Perfect Horizon". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph. THE COMMENT IS REQUIRED. 3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.    *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed. 4) Circle the @114888971165518552849 page. 5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, September 7, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed. 6) Curator favorites will be shared to the @105588730866970114510 theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots LPS Event #50: The Perfect Horizon2015-08-31 17:00:00439

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #47: Lines* Lines can have a huge impact on the composition of your photograph and there are many kinds.  Horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines will create different moods.  Leading lines are extremely powerful when they lead to the object of your photograph.  The sweeping "S curve" adds the power of a strong leading line with a softer more tranquil treatment.  Here are a few short articles that will help you get the idea.  Please read them before posting. http://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-use-lines-in-photography-compositions/ http://digital-photography-school.com/composition-and-the-power-of-line/ http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-use-leading-lines-for-better-compositions/ Use Google search to find other content on the power of lines. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "Lines". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #47: Negative Space* Our last event featured "Fill the Frame".  This event will feature the opposite of that, "Negative Space".  Negative Space is the space surrounding an object or between objects.  In Landscape Photography, it is the space surrounding your primary element.  For example, you might have a single delicate flower along the left (or right) vertical line of the rule of thirds, and no other object in the frame.  The Negative Space is filled with complementary or background colors.    One way to achieve this is to get the primary object in focus and  use a very low number for your aperture.  The background will be blurred with lovely colors that accent your primary element.  Negative Space can be a VERY powerful composition technique.  However, it's difficult to accomplish.  Let's see how great you do.  Our best examples will receive our #GreatNegativeSpace  award!!! *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "Negative Space". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #47: Fill the Frame* "Fill the Frame" is often the first advice given to a beginning photographer.  That's what we will focus on in this event.  For landscape photographs, that can be done in one of two ways.  1. Do it with through the viewfinder.  Move yourself to the proper location and angle or zoom in/out if your camera does this until you get a pleasing image that "fills the frame".  You don't want any extra space or elements that will distract from your composition.   2. Crop your photo to eliminate that meaningless extra space that doesn't contribute to your composition and eliminate distracting elements. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have "Filled the Frame". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #46: Power Points* In the last two events, we explored the horizontal and vertical rule of thirds lines and how they divide your frame into 9 equal parts.  It's always great to set a horizon on the lower or upper horizontal line.  It's also good to place a strong element along one of the vertical rule of thirds lines. This event will focus on where the two vertical and horizontal rule of thirds lines intersect.  We call those Power Points.  There are 4 of them: upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right. Placing a strong element at one of the Power Points can really improve the composition, drama, and power of your photograph.  Examples:  the single red leaf on a green tree; the eye of anything wildlife, and the setting sun on the horizon.    Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Power Points are what we want practice with this event.  Show us something special place at one of the intersection points of those vertical and horizontal lines.   1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays something special at one of the Power Points.       2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us which Power Point you used: upper left, upper right, lower left, or lower right.  Explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Power Point rules, tell us why.  Also give us some information about the location and any challenges that you faced.  We want to know the details about your photograph. 3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.    General Rules: 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed. 4) Circle the @114888971165518552849 page. 5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, July 13, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed. 6) Curator favorites will be shared to the @105588730866970114510 theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots from them!! 7) CuratLPS Event #46: Power Points2015-07-06 17:00:00344

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #45: Vertical Rule of Thirds* In the last event, we explored how to set a horizon using the horizontal rule of thirds.  We're continuing with this strong rule of composition by looking at the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  This event will be starting later today so you have a chance to carefully read all the rules. Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Remember in the last event that you imagined two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divided the space into three equal spaces.  Now, also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later.  For now, we will focus on the vertical lines.  Does your landscape have a strong vertical element that you want to capture?  Let's say it's a single tree.  We often like to put that tree smack dab in the center of the photo.  We may capture the tree but the photograph is boring.  Try putting that tree along one of the vertical lines separating the space into thirds.  Now the photograph has some drama and added interest.   That's what we want practice with this event.  Use one of your vertical lines to capture a strong vertical element.  Don't forget the Horizontal Rule of Thirds and Horizon that we had in the last event.  We want both rules of composition used in this event!! Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.    *1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a strong vertical element using the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  Keep in mind the horizon from the last event.*   *2.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Vertical Rules of Thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.*   *3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.* *4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.*    *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) OnlyLPS Event #45: Vertical Rule Of Thirds2015-06-22 19:00:00409

Landscape Photography Show13,712*Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds* Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines. Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.   Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!   If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon. Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well. *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) *You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don'tLPS Event #44: Horizon - Rule of Thirds2015-06-08 17:00:00568

"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

This is the kind of public service that I love to hear about!!

America At Its Best
Ordinary Americans demonstrating American value with this small gesture of kindness even thought their come from different culture and religious background.

Compare this to how Donald creates fear, hesitates to condemn attacks on the Jewish gravestones and ignore attacks on mosque in Canada. It is little wonder that Donald get little or no respect from anyone other than his supporters. Respect needs to be earned...even for a President.

And what about the press that was supposed to be "Enemy of the American People"? Well they helped out in spreading the word. So did JK Rowlings...

Who wants to bet that Donald does not highlight this positive contribution by Muslim Americans?

Share & Be Informed.

Methane gas from livestock is one of the single most damaging elements of global warming. Limits have been placed on methane production via cattle and now those limits are under attack. Please read and speak out!!

Dear Friends, I have good news and I have bad news. Please read the following post. If you are interested in public lands, our great national parks, and your ability to preserve them for your children to enjoy, then please speak out and step up.

Your voices all joined together to defeat the recent 3.3 million acre land grab in western states. More public lands are under assault from other pending legislation. Proposed legislation would strip the Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service of its law enforcement capacity. These agencies have enforced grazing laws. The BLM hasn't always made the best decisions concerning resource management but they have been decent stewards of the land. Much of this land is very delicate. Overgrazing has made deserts of such lands.

Dear Friends, I have good news and I have bad news. Please read the following post. If you are interested in public lands, our great national parks, and your ability to preserve them for your children to enjoy, then please speak out and step up.

Your voices all joined together to defeat the recent 3.3 million acre land grab in western states. More public lands are under assault from other pending legislation. Proposed legislation would strip the Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service of its law enforcement capacity. These agencies have enforced grazing laws. The BLM hasn't always made the best decisions concerning resource management but they have been decent stewards of the land. Much of this land is very delicate. Overgrazing has made deserts of such lands.

Pipe Springs National Monument is a really historical and interesting place along Hwy 89 between Hurricane, UT and Kanab, UT. If you have headed to Zion, Bryce, or the Grand Canyon, you may have driven right by it. This is high desert country now. However, it wasn't always like that. 100 years ago when pioneers first settled the area, horses and oxen grazed on prairie grass that was 4 ft. high. Cattle were brought to the area because of the availability of grass and water from Pipe Springs. Cattle consumed all the grass and the land never recovered. It's now desert and the ability to graze any animals is gone.

This land is fragile!!! Overgrazing will destroy native grasses and the delicate eco systems which reside there. We need the BLM and the US Forest Service to continue to protect these delicate lands. Please don't allow greedy people to dismiss the only true stewards of the land. Putting the cattlemen in charge is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. The result will be richer cattlemen and yet more desert country.

Thanks +Massimo Marengo for posting this. The rich will get richer. This land belongs to all of us. Selling leases and use permits are one thing. Selling the land is quite another. This is poor stewardship!! The fact that this "disposal" won't generate any revenue is a sure sign that this is a give away to an entitled few!! We need to speak out and speak up!!

US representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah has introduced a piece of legislation to "dispose" (sell to private owners) the 3.3m acres of national land maintained by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). That is about the size of Connecticut.

But many in the 10 states that would lose federal land in the bill disagree, and public land rallies in opposition are bringing together environmentalists and sportsmen across the west.

Set aside for mixed use, BLM land is leased for oil, gas and timber, but is also open to campers, cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts. As well as providing corridors for gray wolves and grizzly bears, low-lying BLM land often makes up the winter pasture for big game species, such as elk, pronghorn and big-horned sheep.

Jason Amaro, who represents the south-west chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, describes the move as a land grab.

“Last I checked, hunters and fishermen were taxpayers,” said Amaro, who lives in a New Mexico county where 70,000 acres of federal lands are singled out. In total, his state, which sees $650m in economic activity from hunting and fishing, stands to lose 800,000 acres of BLM land, or more than the state of Rhode Island.

The "disposal" is not expected to generate any revenue.

John Gale, conservation director for Backcountry Hunters and Anglers in Missoula, Montana, said the Utah representatives were pushing the bills despite their proven unpopularity.

“It’s not only an assault on our traditions,” Gale said. “It’s the idea that they’re stealing that from our children.”

Thanks to +Chris Korman for sharing this.

I'm not opposed to oil and gas wells and I'm not 100% in favor of saving some endangered critter from extinction. However, BEFORE we abuse the land or dispense with the critter, we really need to weigh the pros and cons.

The core of the National Park system is that certain lands have been set aside for the use of the PUBLIC in perpetuity. That's forever!!! Those lands and the resources that they contain are limited. Governments (mostly Federal) have been appointed as stewards of those lands. Officials often are shortsighted and want to please their donors and constituents. They seem to forget that these are NOT local lands. They belong to ALL the people - including me and they belong to our descendants and their descendants too! We have to error on the side of caution.

House Moves to Encourage Drilling in National Parks

WASHINGTON – Congressman Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) last night introduced H.J. Res. 46, which seeks to repeal updates to the National Park Service’s “9B” rules. The rules require detailed planning and set safety standards for oil and gas drilling inside the more than 40 national parks that have “split estate” ownership, where the federal government owns the surface but not the subsurface mineral rights.

The resolution is just the latest in a series of moves by federal lawmakers to weaken environmental protections for national parks under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). If these repeals are signed into law under the CRA, it will not only stop these protections, it will also prohibit agencies from issuing similar rules and protections in the future, unless directed by Congress.

Below is a statement by Nicholas Lund, Senior Manager of National Parks Conservation Association’s Conservation Programs:

“These challenges are direct attacks on America’s national parks. Each of these rules provides the commonsense protections for national parks that millions of Americans demand. If the Park Service’s drilling rules are repealed, national parks across the country would be subjected to poorly regulated oil and gas drilling, threatening parks’ air, water and wildlife. These attempts to weaken protections put our parks at risk. And by using the Congressional Review Act process, Congress is forever tying the hands of the agencies charged with protecting America’s favorite places. If Congress wants to protect national parks for future generations, it must reject these challenges.”

Angel Canyon

The +Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT. is one of my favorites places. It's the largest no-kill animal shelter in the country. They demonstrate compassion and common sense and have made huge advances in the care and treatment of our companion animals. Stop by and visit the next time you visit the great nearby national parks like Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Canyon. They have renamed Kanab Canyon, Angel Canyon and it's a gorgeous place!!

Events come back in February!! Stay tuned for details!!

Meet Harold

Harold has joined the household! He's 14 years old and front de-clawed. He was found as a stray and very emaciated. At his age and without front claws, life on the streets must have been terribly difficult for him. He certainly couldn't catch any food. I honestly don't know how he survived.

He came to the +Wayside Waifs animal shelter where I volunteer and was there about a month before he was adopted by a wonderful family. He stayed there for 6 weeks and put on some much needed weight. The family didn't feel he was bonding sufficiently with the resident cat so they returned Harold to the shelter where he stayed another month. I knew that if he didn't get adopted by New Years that he would need to come home with me.

I knew that if he didn't get adopted by New Years that he would need to come home with me.

Having 3 resident cats, I needed to make special preparations for Harold!! I've got the best brother-in-law in the world!! He helped me move furniture and make a room ready for Harold!! He arrived home Wednesday and is getting settled in. He has seen a couple of the resident cats from a distance and had a big "hiss" for each. We're taking it slow and easy!!

Senior pets are the most amazing animals. They truly know that you are saving their lives!! I now have two 14 yr olds, a 16 yr old, and a 3 yr old. 3 were adopted from the shelter where I volunteer and the oldest came from +Brown County Humane Society in Indiana. They are awesome companions and great friends!!

Please consider adopting a senior pet from your local shelter!!

Cathedral Rock ~ Sedona

Storm clouds always add great drama to a landscape but they don't always come when you want them. I was very lucky at Sedona!!

Shafts of Light

I love the slot canyons near Page, Arizona. This is Upper Antelope Canyon. The light bounces off the walls in ever changing patterns to delight the photographers that come from all over the world to photograph it. I'm one of them and I'm in awe of that wonderful light! It's magical!! Happy Sunday everyone!!!

Toward the east of Watchtower, the Grand Canyon becomes more shallow as the plateau flattens out. Here are wonderful views of the Colorado River and the distant desert beyond. Enjoy, my friends!!

Resolutions ~ Goals ~ Opportunities

I haven't made any resolutions yet. I'm still accessing the major decisions that I made in 2016. One of the best decisions by far was the vacation rental that I bought in Kanab, UT. When I'm there, I'm just minutes away from the Vermilion Cliffs and +Best Friends Animal Society !! Zion is just 30 mi. away. Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks, Lake Powell, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon are easy day trips!! I love it there!!

The Vermillion Cliffs near Kanab, UT

I feel at home here!! Out on the Arizona Strip country of southern Utah and northern Arizona!! It's no man's land but, oh!! It's beautiful!!

Since I just paid property taxes in Kane County, UT., I CAN claim this as home!! The area is gorgeous and the people are wonderful!! I love this part of the great United States!! I'll call it home!!

What Once Was Is Now Gone

This was the side of a small country grocery store in central Indiana. It had served the community for 125 years. It's now gone. I feel it has taken a bit of me with it. I don't dwell on the past but I respect it and remember it.

Kaibab Plateau ~ North Rim Grand Canyon

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is a small part of the vast Kaibab Plateau that is covered with great forests of Ponderosa Pine and vast meadows. There are a few non-native species found there such as this herd of buffalo and stalking them, this herd of photographers. I'm wishing all of you a Happy New Year!!!

Zion and the Virgin River

I'm in awe of the beauty that is Zion!! The Virgin River is often at peace but it also rages with flash floods and is dangerous. Such is the beauty of Zion. It's both fragile and fierce! It must be respected!!
