Gailen Mapes71,322Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 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.2014-11-14 11:21:38202002

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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005
Gerard Blacklock23,700Gerry's Australian Photographers Circle Version 3Hey Aussie togs, this is a pretty big update to this circle from the last one, this time I have been more selective in the fact that inactive glus members get booted, the circle was over 600 and as such I needed to comply with 'the less than 500 requirement' hence culling was needed.Note, this is the only circle I share since I really have a interest in local content.Feel free to reshare as you see fit, the main purpose is to facilitate more engagement between local aussie togs.Please feel free to comment and let me know if you know anyone (or if you are indeed one) who is a quality, active and interesting Australian based photographer.Two great communities/themes to get involved with if you like Australia content is #photomaniaustralia +Photo Mania Australia and Australian Landscape Photography https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/1060822645285719679572014-08-13 02:56:2844714219

When the sun hits the ground

A 6 frame panorama taken at sunset at Shark Beach, Vaucluse in Sydney's eastern suburbs. The dirty smoky layer near the ground was because of a hazard reduction burn in one of the national parks and added to the red of the sunset. 6 frames, 16mm, f/11, 1/400sec, ISO 100.

Paving from nature

Came across fantastic natural "paving" created by nature through wearing of the rock in the intertidal area of South Era Beach in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney.

Too early for even the swimmers

(Best viewed full screen)

This LE was taken before sunrise, at first light, at Mona Vale Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches area. Normally I find swimmers in the rockpools at the beaches before first light but on this day looks like I beat them to it. Taken from a rock shelf with the sea and waves to my back.

16mm, f/11, 239sec, ISO 100, Lee Big Stopper.

Mind your head

Under the long jetty/wharf at Mackerel Beach in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, north of Sydney. While I was squatting under the jetty, the other people with me were amusing themselves taking photographs of me crouched down there. Oh well, whatever rocks their boats... ;)

Don't rock me

Taken from the end of a long jetty, looking back towards Mackerel Beach in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, north of Sydney. It was taken in between mouthfuls of my lunch sandwich as I was with a few people, LE's take time, and everyone was waiting for me while I had a few re-takes as the jetty rocked gently with the water.

Light breaks where no sun shines

I went to Mona Vale Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) yesterday before first light, hoping to catch a great sunrise with the promised cloudy sky. Definitely was a cloudy sky - in fact, so cloudy we never saw the sun all day. For a few minutes just after sunrise, there was great (but subdued) colour in the sky, as seen here, but that soon dissipated as the sun rose higher - or did it - we never saw it, so did it rise at all? ;)

The calm before the storm

This LE in Cammeray (northern Sydney) was the last photograph I was able to take on that "day of the storms" before the big storm hit. Fortunately I was able to complete the shot before I had to run away to shelter.

I had posted the previous non-LE shot at this location a few days ago: https://plus.google.com/111760994834428090634/posts/JauBjVsqTAC

I'm glad to see you

Been concerned that spiders in general are dwindling in number. We used to get massive magnificent Golden Orb Weaver webs in our yards but none for the last 2-3 years. Numbers for others are also down quite a bit. We do not use pesticides in our garden but people in general do and with their prey also affected, spiders are not as numerous as they used to be. This is sad because they are great natural pest exterminators. So I was very glad to see two webs side by side in our garden one night last week, both of these made by Australian garden orb weaver spiders (Eriophora transmarina). This is a female and was about 50mm leg-tip to leg-tip. They are nocturnal creatures and hide during the day. This one has obviously been successful and has its next meal (or two) wrapped up in silk - from the visible wing, probably a fly of some sort.

Halt! Who goes there?

Cowering behind the only shelter available, 95km/h winds howling around me, even the clouds flee in fear, and a tree high above me shivers. What appears to be the moon hesitantly peers through the terrified clouds, and a structure that is meant to warn ships about this rock towers over me... or is it really for some other sinister purpose altogether?

Get ready to run

(Best viewed full screen)

This tranquil beautiful setting belies what was actually happening when I was taking this shot on Saturday. A big clue can be found by looking at the sky. This shot was taken from the Tunks Park area in the northern Sydney suburb of Cammeray, looking towards Long Bay. I could hear thunder and see lightning and turning around, I could see massive sheets of water cascading from the sky not far away at all and coming closer. I had enough time to take this shot and an LE after this, but I had to then hurriedly curtail my session, pack hastily away and run. In the time it took me to run the 20m to near where that wharf is on the left of the frame, I was dripping wet. I ducked into a sandstone overhang and waited it out. In 15 minutes, the storm had passed and I climbed the hill there and resumed my bushwalk.

Tie me down

Yesterday was 'wild swings' day, it would appear, from a weather point of view. I delayed leaving home during the day because it was burning hot and 36 degrees C. By the time sunset came, we'd had three thunderstorms and very wild winds. This photograph was taken looking west at sunset from Blues Point Reserve in the northern Sydney suburb of McMahons Point. Standing right at the water's edge, I felt at times that the wind would blow me over into the water. I had a solid tripod with me but even then its legs were vibrating in the wind, even though I was holding the tripod rigidly and trying to damp the vibration. Obviously lost lots of photographs because of shake but this one was earlier when the wind was not so strong but the sky was still dramatic.

Smoke on the water?

The sea wasn't very friendly this morning at Avalon Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) just after sunrise. While it is not very evident here because of the long exposure, the waves battered these rocks and surged on to the rock platform where I stood. It was interesting to watch the water surge into the channel betwen the rocks on the right and seethe in a maelstrom in those narrow confines.

Up she goes

Not a very big swell at Manly Beach just after sunrise on Sunday but the waves seemed to want to take their anger out on the rocks right next to where I was, which meant water spray spots on the ND filter that had to be wiped off repeatedly. Not too long an exposure to make the water all silky smooth but long enough to convey motion. At least that was the intention...

Looks like they've all gone now

The Seattle skyline and the Great Wheel at night, as photographed from Pier 63. 

16mm, f/11, 91sec, ISO 100. Shot with a Lee 0.9 Hard Grad so that the Wheel and building lights wouldn't be overexposed but still provide that great blue light from the Great Wheel to light up the timbers.

Looks like they've all gone now

The Seattle skyline and the Great Wheel at night, as photographed from Pier 63. 

16mm, f/11, 91sec, ISO 100. Shot with a Lee 0.9 Hard Grad so that the Wheel and building lights wouldn't be overexposed but still provide that great blue light from the Great Wheel to light up the timbers.

Fence-sitter

I don't know if this an ant or not. It looks kinda like one but I've never seen one looking like this. It was atop a fence-post while I was on a bushwalk last weekend in Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, and I had to take this hurriedly, with speedlight in one hand and camera in the other, as I was blocking the very narrow track and there were quite a few people needing to pass.

Update: Thanks to +Seth Burgess. This is a Native Flower Wasp  (Thynnus zonatus). This one is a flightless female. The males are smaller and have wings. She has to depend on the male to carry her from flower to flower. They are parasitic wasps laying eggs on beetle larvae, especially those in the superfamily Scarabaeoidea.

Not sushi grade

An LE shot taken from Station Beach in Sydney's northernmost suburb of Palm Beach, looking out on to the Pittwater. Barrenjoey Headland is seen to the right, Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park in the distance left, and through the gap between West Head and Barrenjoey Head is the Hawkesbury River and the NSW Central Coast in the far distance. There was plenty of seaweed around, as can be seen from the foreground and under the water.

Swim or surf?

This 8 frame panorama is taken from Sydney's northernmost point, the axe-head shaped Barrenjoey Headland, about 100m above the sea. In the centre below is the narrow Barrenjoey Peninsula, with the Pacific Ocean to the left, and the Pittwater to the right. The suburb of Palm Beach is closest with beaches on both sides of the peninsula. On the far right across the Pittwater is the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park.

Like dashing through a sieve

Mid-afternoon sun lights up this long corridor in this recently restored cottage at the base of the historic Barrenjoey Lighthouse, that sits atop Barrenjoey Headland, which is Sydney's northernmost point. The cottages (built originally for the lighthouse keepers) and lighthouse were damaged in a bushfire last year that raced up the slopes and destroyed a lot of the vegetation on the headland.

The swimmers are keen

In this sunrise photograph at Avalon Beach (in Sydney's north), you can see the ocean rockpool at middle right. A large number of Sydney's beaches have such rockpools that enable people to swim safely in usually calm sea water fed straight by ocean waves. Of course, there have been occasions when sharks have found their way into rockpools with big waves but that is extremely rare. In this case, I was at Avalon before first light but was surprised to find a couple of people (and they're invariably senior citizens) at the rockpool already, swimming in the near darkness. That is keen...

I told you, that's a fly-screen, not a moth-screen

Been a while since I posted macro shots... This rather ragged looking little moth came and sat on the fly-screen on one of our external doors. Wasn't convinced that I had the skills to take a decent portrait of it so it kept moving!

Don't step on the wildlife

This is Avalon Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) just after sunrise. I was on the rocks in the intertidal region and had to be careful not to step on the fascinating life on the rocks and in the many rockpools.

Easy does it

Very early this morning at Avalon Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) just as the sun rose. Was there before first light - always a beautiful sight watching the glow increase before the sun breaks through. Was a cloudless sky today, so nothing to give definition and interest to it, but was happy that the haze from the hazard reduction burns added colour to the sunrise, but also made the sky look a bit dirty, especially close to the ground/sea. Had to be very careful and move slowly and gingerly - the rocks were covered with algae and a slip would hurt a lot and break a lot too!

In all its magnificence

This is Waratah season. The magnfiicent Telopea speciosissima (family Proteaceae) is the state flower of New South Wales. It is actually an inflorescence - a collection of flowers. This one was about 20cm across, not including the red bracts under the flowers. Not happy with the photograph - the sharpness, the DOF - but the conditions were not the best. The infloresence is terminal at the end of a long vertical stalk, and this one was about 2.5m high. Luckily there was a tree stump nearby but it was narrow on top so picture me balancing precariously on top of this stump, in one hand I had a wireless speedlight and a stout twig (to reach out and tilt the infloresence slightly towards me so the top could be seen) and in the other hand the DSLR held stretched above my head shooting sight unseen in the general direction of the Waratah.

A 6 frame panorama taken at sunset at Shark Beach, Vaucluse in Sydney's eastern suburbs. The dirty smoky layer near the ground was because of a hazard reduction burn in one of the national parks and added to the red of the sunset. 6 frames, 16mm, f/11, 1/400sec, ISO 100.

Not often that I shoot landscapes vertically but this 16mm wide shot got me both the cotton candy pink clouds and the rocks directly below where I was standing. Shark Beach, Vaucluse in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

Ship ahoy!

A blue hour shot at Shark Beach, Vaucluse, in Sydney's eastern suburbs. It was pretty dark at this time but looks brighter than it was because of the long exposure (30 sec) and some light painting. The lights across the water were from a ship which looked like a Navy ship, moored at Chowder Bay, I think.

On the rocks, like a mountain goat

This is the first shot I'm posting that has been taken with my new D750. FF makes you appreciate what 'wide' really is. A convoluted process importing the images into Lightroom though (DNG conversion) as LR/PS don't recognise the D750 yet.

A pretty sunset a few hours ago at Shark Beach, Vaucluse in Sydney's eastern suburbs. I was glad some cloud appeared to provide some interest in a sky that had been cloudless all day. As the headland at the far end of the beach obstructed my view of the setting sun, I had to clamber on to the rocks at this end of the beach, where I was perched rather like a mountain goat (but a goat with a tripod).

On the rocks, like a mountain goat

This is the first shot I'm posting that has been taken with my new D750. FF makes you appreciate what 'wide' really is. A convoluted process importing the images into Lightroom though (DNG conversion) as LR/PS don't recognise the D750 yet.

A pretty sunset a few hours ago at Shark Beach, Vaucluse in Sydney's eastern suburbs. I was glad some cloud appeared to provide some interest in a sky that had been cloudless all day. As the headland at the far end of the beach obstructed my view of the setting sun, I had to clamber on to the rocks at this end of the beach, where I was perched rather like a mountain goat (but a goat with a tripod).

Smash that guitar

I found this building very interesting and intruiging, as are most of the buildings designed by architect Frank Gehry. It has sheet-metal construction along the same lines as the Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. This is the EMP Museum in Seattle, dedicated to contemporary popular culture. It was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2000. I think one of the backgrounds in Windows 7 features an aspect of this building.

That's a lot of water

This 4 shot pseudo-HDR panorama of Snoqualmie Falls near Seattle, Washington, shows the scale of the falls when the surroundings are also shown. The falls are about 90m high. I was told that the current flow at the end of Summer is a fraction of that in Spring, when snow melt swells the flow such that the entire width of the volcanic rock shelf is covered with water.

You wouldn't want to take a shower under this

It is not immediately evident from this zoomed-in LE shot how much power there is in this waterfall (pun intended). This is Snoqualmie Falls near Seattle, Washington. I was quite impressed that the aesthetic look of the falls were retained by locating the hydro-electric generating plant underground even though the plant was built in the 1890's.

Still got the (spinning) blues

From the first night of my week-and-a-bit in Seattle (just got back to Sydney this morning), here's an LE shot of the Seattle Great Wheel and the city around it.

Finished my night shots around 9:30pm and decided to try a recommended restaurant for dinner. Must say the city downtown appeared a bit dodgy to me, at least the bits I saw. Quite a few homeless, druggies and aggressive types on 3rd Ave. at that time. When a fight broke out between two groups while on my way there, I called it quits and turned back to the hotel and had my meal there. Still, got to that restaurant a few days later along with a few people from work (and it was great).

Came across this fungus specimen that I think is some form of Boletes judging from the pores on the underside of the pileus.

No witches riding this broom

It is Spring - time for wildflowers. The bush is ablaze with pea flowers (from family Fabaceae) at the moment. The ones in this image are not that common compared to other pea flowers but I came across a few plants during my last bushwalk. These are flowers from the Broom Bossiaea (Bossiaea scolopendria). A little unusual in that it has virtually no leaves. The stems are flat and flowers grow straight from the stems.

There was no sunset that day

(View full screen)

It was a very wet day. Not exactly an ideal day for a photowalk, but walk we did. The sunset was not visible that day because of the heavy cloud cover. This panorama was taken during drizzle from Blues Point. You can see the Sydney CBD to the left with the extreme left being the lead up to the Harbour Bridge. Towards the right is further west, with the Anzac Bridge visible in the distance. In the centre you can see something you may not see next year - the 87-metre former Sydney Ports Harbour Control Tower, proposed to be demolished as part of the Barangaroo development.

When a rose is not a rose

These beautiful and delicate little flowers are among the first wildflowers of Spring. On my bushwalk last weekend, I was gratified to see many clumps of colour all over the dense heath, and prominent among all of them were the beautiful pinks of the Wax Flowers. Of these, the majority were various species of Boronia, mainly the Sydney Boronia, but also quite a few Eriostemon. I stopped when I spotted something quite different and very striking. It was the leaves and how they were arranged that drew me close - they looked like hand-made braids of delicately serrated rhomboid leaves, and at the end of each braid were little clusters of 6-8 delicate cup shaped flowers, each flower being 8-10mm across. I think this was the first time I've seen these flowers. This is Sydney Rose or Native Rose (Boronia serrulata). They are not roses at all but from the Rutaceae... more »
