Aleksandra Ikkonen2,962+Margaret Tompkins   originally shared this post:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 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.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography #LandsacapePhotography 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   Collapse this post2013-01-30 06:34:5947710014CC G+

Margaret Tompkins37,402>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 5,000 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.  Most have < 5,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography 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  2012-12-17 19:17:2149619584150CC G+

There are quite a few who don't follow me but whose work I've discovered.Note: No one asked, begged, or had to do anything to be in these circles except be an active G+ photographer who I happen to follow.That being said, why share circles you are included in?It will help you be seen by different folks. It is amazing when I see how few people I follow in common with even my closest friends and I follow around 2500 people. There are so many good photographers on G+ that it is impossible to find them all.  Shares help make those introductions."D"elighted to know you+Gene Bowker http://rustedrailimages.comWould you like to be in the next circle set?1) Be sure to circle me.2) Be active. Post regularly...3) Be interactive. Respond to comments, etc...4) Be yourself. Post your own stuff, not just reshares.5) Be sure to introduce yourself. Stop by one of my posts and say hi.6) Feel free to share the current circles. (not required but really appreciated)In the end, I make the final calls on who gets in or not based on my own judgement. That is why I'm happy to put my name on them.2012-09-25 22:39:58167682153CC G+

Lava flowing into the ocean at Kalapana, Puna District, Big Island of Hawai'i. The source of this flow is Pu'u O'o vent, which has been erupting continuously for 30 years. This particular flow reached the sea at Thanksgiving, 2012.
Reached via a challenging 2.5- or 3-mile hike across an old lava field; must go with a permitted guide (or else end up hopelessly lost!). Recommended: +Bruce Omori and +Tom Kuali'i from Extreme Exposure in Hilo.
An absolutely stunning sight -- the power of nature at its rawest.

On Maui we have some small groves of "Rainbow Eucalyptus." Don't know the scientific name. Extraordinary colors from the  continually peeling bark, which is sort of a cinammon-colored base and which glows after a rainstorm.

At Kilauea Crater, in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, the Halema'uma'u Crater has been venting for 5 years now. This shot was taken at night, under a full moon; the cloud of steam and smoke is lit at the bottom by the glow from the lava in the vent. Stars visible in the sky include the constellation Orion.

This picture was taken along the Kona shoreline on the Big Island of Hawai'i, just south of the airport, during a high surf (10-12 foot) period. I just loved the way the water cascaded off the lava shelfs here.

I planned months to get this composition, with the Milky Way lying gently over the top of Haleakala (peak 10,000+ feet, a dormant volcano on Maui, also a US National Park). Shot during a new moon, about an hour before sunrise. Lights on the shoreline are Kihei/Wailea/Makena in south Maui; but you can see lights 'Up Country' at about 3,500 foot elevation, from Makawao to Kula.

I got to visit Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park this past weekend, and was able to catch this image. The orange glow is on a smoke column venting from the lava vent in Halema'uma'u Crater, inside Kilauea. The white on top is lit by moonlight. Native 'Ohi'a Lehua trees in silhouette,and Orion visible in the stars on top.

Along the Road to Hana, in Maui, there may be lots of waterfalls (depending on the rainfall etc), and some of them are basically invisible from the narrow two-lane road. The lower falls on Wailuaiki Stream are a classic example ... you've gotta find a place to park, then hike up the road, then climb up on the edge of a steep drop to even see them.

In southeast Maui, west of Hana, is a sea-level extension of Haleakala National Park (Kipahulu District), which encompasses 'Ohe'o Gulch (sometimes referred to mistakenly as the 'Seven Sacred Pools'). This is one of the outflows of Pipiwai Stream that runs through the Gulch.

This was always just a bridge I drove over along the Road to Hana (Maui), but this day I had stopped to walk up the road to shoot a waterfall, and on the way back, I was taken with the light, the lines, the color ... not "just a bridge" anymore!

Aloha! This is a shot from O'ahu of the Nu'uanu Pali (and the Ko'olau Mountains), taken from the old Pali road trail below the lookout. I was inspired by the Ansel Adams photograph of Half Dome that he titled "Monolith", so tried to capture that same feeling with this rugged formation.

Had a nice drive out along the Road to Hana (Maui) yesterday. Lots of great waterfalls that are easy to get to, and some take a little work. This photo is of a fall that people call Wailuaiki Falls, and is less than a mile hike up above the road (if you know where you're going!). On investigation, I found that it is one of several great waterfalls along the West Wailuaiki Stream; so may better be termed "Upper Wailuaiki Falls." But of all the falls in Hawai'i, it's hard to beat this spot for sheer beauty and peacefulness. Aloha.

A lot of Hawai'i "Landscapes" encompass the sea ... not sure where the 'Landscape' ends and the 'Seascape' begins, but the combination makes for some gorgeous shots. This was taken on the north shore of Kaua'i, just past Ke'e Beach, in the 15 minutes of sun we had during a 3.5 hour shoot.

The Big Island of Hawai'i boasts one National Park and several National Historic Sites, including Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park (formerly "Place of Refuge"). Before western contact, Hawaiian culture was controlled by a variety of "kapu" (taboo) practices. Breaking a kapu could result in death ... unless the perpetrator could make it to one of the places of refuge before being caught. If successful, they would perform penance at the refuge, and eventually be allowed to return to society.

The Hawaiian Islands were all formed by volcanoes, the eroded remains of which form the "mountains" of Hawai'i. On the island of O'ahu, there are two "mountain ranges"; the one on the windward side is the Ko'olau range, which includes the Nu'uanu Pali (far left). The Pali is the site of a major battle in the late 1700s when King Kamehameha invaded O'ahu, driving the defenders up the Nu'uanu Valley, and eventually over the cliffs here at the Pali.
