Gailen Mapes65,796Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 of 30Note: 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 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 +2014-07-09 16:13:04147408CC G+

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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:3515210217CC G+

Wow!

Elephant Yoga for +African Tuesday 

I believe this elephant is attempting the Upward Facing Dog pose ;)

In less than 10 day we are off to Zimbabwe for 2 weeks.  We'll be splitting our time between Rhino Safari Camp (http://www.rhinosafaricamp.com), Mana Pools with the gang from +Wild Eye, and then a water-based safari from houseboat on Lake Kariba.  I am way overdue to get out of my stuffy office and into the bush where I feel much more at home.  I'll be trying out some new Canon gear this year (1Dx body and EF 200-400mm f/4 USM + internal 1.4x TC) and hope to get a review posted on my yet to be released blog when I return.  Catch you later my friends.

My First  

BEST VIEWED LARGE

Yep - this is the first Common Loon I've ever seen in the wild or photographed.  Lucky me, I got some good intel from the local marina owner who spotted him and passed on the info.  I rolled out of bed, walked 100 meters and there he was feeding 20 feet from the docks.  I'm never too proud to take the lazy wildlife shot :o)  Enjoy.

Yes - I still shoot landscapes :-)  BEST VIEWED LARGE

Note: I've decided to re-post this image after giving my tired old eyes a nights rest.  They thought the image was over-saturated last night so I backed off.  Well this morning's fresh eyes see that I went too far. Here is hopefully a better version :)

You may have noticed that I haven't posted many landscape over the last several months.  Well that's because I've been busy chasing wildlife ;)  A relaxing week on Green Turtle Cay gave me the chance to give it a go again.  Well at least when I wasn't sipping rum on the beach.  Enjoy and share.

Fish On!

The local osprey lets us know when its time to go fishing again. He shows off an early Spring flounder snagged from Long Island Sound. This was the first real test for my new Canon 1Dx.  Auto-focus tracking was amazing even with the osprey flying directly at me and the 12 fps frame rate is awesome for birds in flight. Enjoy!

Please Mr. Boswell for WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Boswell, the chap on the right, performed a little circus act to retrieve the branch at his feet.  The other cheeky little guy wants to partake in Boswell's feast.  Boswell will not tolerate his nonsense.  End of story.  It's good to be the king of Mana Pools ;)

Where Silent Gods Stand Still

©Penny Robartes

Driving into Lake Nakuru in the late afternoon, I felt an overwhelming sense of reverence as we drove through the forests of Fever Trees that surround the lake.

These massive yellow trees have always had an effect on me since I was a child, and this has not seemed to change as the years have gone by.

As we rounded the road, the trees suddenly thinned out into nothing, leaving an open plain before us that led to the our first photographic sighting... more »

Waterbuck Portrait for WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY

Here's the results of a little Photoshop fun combining an image of a proud and strong waterbuck I photographed in Botswana last year with a variety of texture layers and other post-processing techniques.  It may be a bit over-the-top but you never learn if you don't try.  Constructive comments or suggestions are always welcome.  Enjoy!

Lobster  Dinner

If you look really, really close you can see an orange lobster pot buoy way off in the distance  in the center of the image.  That's pretty common around here...lots of locals forage on the coast for all the free shellfish they can find.  I can think of worse ways to spend the day ;-)
