Sandra Parlow59,905Ok.. so I don't usually do circle shares because I generally don't like them.... however, the other night I asked you, to share people with me who you thought I probably don't follow, and I found some new people for my stream!Several people inquired about me sharing some of the people I follow with them, and so I decided to share one of my circles with you.Everyone in this circle has less than 10,000 followers (ok - maybe a few have crept up over that mark since I added them - I gave them a quick run through to check but I may have missed some) and most of them are people who I have shared over the last year to try to get them a bit more attentionThese people produce good work, and most are greatly undervalued here on G+.  Many of them I don't know well, and many I don't know at all so please don't feel hurt if you are not included in this circle share.  I only started building this circle about a year ago and so if I have been following you for a longer time and you have less than 10,000, you are in other circles.    Give the circle a look.  Add it and check it out in your stream and see what you think, or go through it person by person.  There is very good work in this circle......2013-08-10 03:30:5717535321CC G+

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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-03-02 12:42:30340836CC G+

Margaret Tompkins28,879>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Each has < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 5,000 and 10,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  Many are new to G+ and you may not know them so please make them feel welcomed! Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2012-09-24 17:57:45492336153226CC G+

Grayson Hartman22,725BIG THANKS TO ALL +Fire Friday CONTRIBUTORS!CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.Fire Friday:  Anything fire goes-from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, fire hydrants and fire hoses.

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/about2012-08-01 10:56:37384117CC G+

Sumit Sen45,935Circle Share: Talented and Inspiring people Part - II will share a few curated circles of my circle friends over the next few weeks and will start with two circles containing members who deserve more attention and following. To the best of my knowledge all of them have less than 10,000 followers. Part - I has 50 members (for easy checking) and all are inspiring photographers and/or great communicators (a talent that is in short supply in G+ these days :) ). All of them are regular posters and have posted since 1st June at least.As always with any circle share do check individuals, if you can, before adding. But I think it is risk free to add the entire circle in this case. I do have strong bias for nature and wildlife photographers, and that might show here. Part - II next week.  #circleshare  2012-07-09 07:52:0350391367CC G+
Gailen Mapes12,091Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera A-C - 1 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 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 June 15.)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.

Sandra Parlow43,963I am not a circle sharer..   I have never publicly shared a circle before.But - I feel compelled to share this one because these are the people in my circles that I feel don't get enough attention.  They all have under, or maybe just over 10,000 people circling them.  Many of them are new to G+ and are just having  hard time getting noticed - but they truly should be. Share it if you like, don't if you don't.  I encourage you to check these people out - it's a small circle so give them a try.I apologize if I missed anyone - most of the people in this circle I don't even know "personally" - I just enjoy their work, and I hope to add to this list as I find new exciting people to enjoy.2012-06-27 16:29:179028633CC G+

Peter From36,228The CAPTURE THE NATURE Circle –– Validated First Version #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF The time has come to reshare my validated first revision of the Capture The Nature Circle (CNC) with 463 excellent artists that produce great nature photography. You don't want to miss this one. I am proud to promote these great people and I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting images to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the next CNC train, do the following:1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed.3. Make sure that you share your own original nature photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The CNC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great nature imagery to their feeds.NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the CNC. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:This post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-05-28 11:01:11463127162135CC G+

Yet again we have learned a little more about the things that are sacred to each of us. We have shared the amazing and varied cultures, customs, natural wonders and also taken the time to consider the more deeply reflective matters of our world. There were lots of tributes this week to mothers everywhere - hoping all the mothers had a very 'Happy Mothers Day'. On behalf of the whole team:• Firstly, we wold like to thank everyone. • There continued to be a very good turn out this week and a growing community of regular contributors• We realize that naming all of the curators can get to be a bit much so we ask you to name at least one of us and the page. Certainly, we all like to receive the notice so we hope you'll mention us all but we'll understand if you don't.Hopefully the circle includes everyone that contributed to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. Everyone is important to the success of the theme and we apologize if we missed you. Note: we want to be up front. Many of the people in this circle received a "notification" that we added them to our circles. This is a temporary circle and we can't keep everyone in the long term. We will keep people that have circled us as long as we can but, we may need to drop some of the people that added us. #circleshare #sharedcircles2012-05-16 05:58:43380131820CC G+

Gailen Mapes7,020Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera A-C - 1 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.My last share of the "hand picked" circles was March 15. As before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 22 for this set.A word about spam... A lot of previously good photographers are sharing a lot of goofy stuff these days. Remember, if you are in the "Hand Picked" circles, you are represented as "more photos, less spam." Goofy animated GIFs don't hack it and I reserve the right to drop you from these circles. So if you were dropped, this is probably the reason. (I have the same 5000 limit as everyone else. I can't afford to keep spammers in my circles.)2012-03-22 20:10:473591235CC G+

Melanie MP14,009.Please share!I have often seen the circles are shared with female photographers but still no circle with only male photographers.For me this is not equality. Equality means to treat me the same.So I have all the men and women separated from photographers circles and share my now 3 men and one women's circle with you. So once the men have their owncircles.I hope it will soon be more women, so I can make them 3 circuits.Here are included only photographers who actively participate in this year were or are.Errors are possible. There were so many ....And here is the women's circle (A to Z) Ich habe oft gesehen das Kreise mit weiblichen Fotografen geteilt werden aber noch keinen Kreis mit nur Männlichen Fotografen. Das ist für mich keine Gleichberechtigung. Gleichberechtigung heißt für mich gleich behandeln. Deshalb habe ich alle Frauen und Männer aus meinen Fotografen Kreisen getrennt und teile nun 3 Männerkreise und einen Frauenkreis mit Euch. Damit auch die Männer ml ihre eigenen Kreise haben. Ich hoffe das ich einmal genauso viele Frauenkreise, wie Männerkreise haben werde.Hier sind nur Fotografen enthalten, die in diesem Jahr aktiv waren oder sind. Fehler sind möglich. Es waren so viele....Und hier ist der Frauen Kreis (A bis Z )2012-03-11 10:56:32441391021CC G+

Hello!  I have been very absent on G+ so trying to get back into the swing of things. I currently live in the Portland, Maine area, but will be moving within the next few months to Seattle, WA, which I am very excited about. In the meantime, I am trying to make sure I capture as much of Maine as I can.

The shot below was taken as I was waiting for a bald eagle to come out into the open (which he never did). That is okay though, because this is my first time getting close enough to a pileated to get a decent shot. :)

Well, I have not been active on here in some time. I am getting ready for a move back to the PNW, but before that, I am trying to take as much time as possible to capture as much of Maine as I can. As it has across a good portion of the US and Canada, this winter has been very cold and snowy. It warmed up last Saturday to -5, so I decided to get out and about. This is the Presumpscot River at Babb's Bridge, Windham, Maine. Stay warm and safe!

My very first Snowy Owl! This is along the south shore of Lake Ontario west of Rochester, NY. Not the greatest shot, but I was just very excited to see this guy.  This was shot from my car, and didn't really want to get out and stress him just get a closer shot. Hoping I will see and photograph more before the winter is over.

This past Sunday, there was some good wind, so took a drive to one of my favorite local parks, Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Wow! there was some awesome wavage going on! And better yet, I was the only person there....no one to get in my way, or interfere with me bonding with nature, awesome!

Portland Head Light, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

This was the day after Nemo, the blizzard that hit the NE United States this past weekend (2/9/13). I was hoping there would still be some big waves, but it was pretty calm. Found everything covered in a beautiful ice coating though.

Hello! This is my first post to this community, and this group. Since this is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world, I'm sure many of you have seen a thousand shots of this place...Portland Head Lighthouse, Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  This shot was taken the day after Hurricane Sandy passed by our area, and at high tide with non-stop, amazing waves.  I look forward to participating in this community...loving the community thing! Happy Saturday!

Hello Everyone, so happy to be a part of this group! I have not been very good about getting on G+ lately, but I will try to do better.  The photo below isn't spectacular, but it has a special place in my heart. This is Ruffles, one of the more well known Orca whales in the Puget Sound. This shot was taken in May, 2009. I think it has been determined that Ruffles has since passed, but researchers believe he was at least 60 years old. Here is a link for more info on this guy:  http://www.orcawatcher.com/2011/06/tribute-to-j1-ruffles.html

I love photographing boats, and Maine has some awesome boats. This one here, is just a simple little guy. I almost drove of the road when I saw this. Had to park quite a ways away and walk back to get this, but just love the peaceful mood it brings back to me when I see it.

Happy Friday everyone, and hope those of you participating in a Scott Kelby Photowalk tomorrow have a great time. Can't wait to see all the pics!

Acadia National Park - A Walk in the Rain

Paid a visit to Acadia National Park over the weekend. It was a complete washout...absolutely raining buckets of water. Still, put on my rain poncho, grabbed my shower cap and plastic bag for the camera, and was determined to get a few shots.
