Gailen Mapes68,805Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-09 10:25:01137000

Gailen Mapes66,670Hand 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 +2014-08-09 11:07:541394111

For my lovely wife +Karen Rowland Yeo just so she knows I'm taken good care of her boy while she's traveling.  He's getting lots of exercise and is great practice for action wildlife photography.

Yes it's true...I finally went to the dark side and started using Facebook! Stop by and check out my Lux Solis Studio - Nature Photography page. I'll do posts on FB and G+ but will keep duplication of images/post to a minimum.  Got to keep it fresh ;)

Oops.  Forgot to share publicly.  My wife is mad at me ;)

For the Love of Mud for +African Tuesday 

I can sit for hours watching ellies.  Why anyone would every consider killing them for some ridiculous ivory trinket is beyond my comprehension.  I must have shot 300 frames of this family enjoying their time in the mud.  Love the photos I got but the smiles and laughs we had watching their love-of-the -mud was priceless.

Danger Close
BEST VIEWED LARGE

Crocs have killed 2 local residents on the shores of Lake Kariba in the last month.  We had a chance to photograph some of these beasts on our recent trip to Zimbabwe.  This massive fellow was at least 4 meters long and didn't appreciate the attention.

Big V and his Crew

On foot with the giant forest elephants in Mana Pools was an exhilarating experience.  Thanks to +Marlon du Toit , +Wild Eye, Tess, Dave and master tracker Kevin (www.mwinilunga.com) for a wild time in Zimbabwe.  By the way, he is known as "V" because of the V-notch in his lower left ear.

Matusadona Lioness BEST VIEWED LARGE

This beautiful girl and her mates were calling all night long.  We made an early morning run into a narrow channel along the shores of Elephant Point on Lake Kariba with our pontoon tender boat and were rewarded with six lions stalking the shoreline.  This was a pretty exciting sighting since it was not the usual "lazy lion" situation.  Once this girl noticed us she jumped two small channels of water and a made a beeline to us. She was on the hunt so we gave her some space because there was simply not enough room on the boat for another passenger.

Pink Dawn for +African Tuesday

Good morning friends!  We just returned from a super trip to Zimbabwe.  There were so many wonderful moments in front of and behind the camera lens.  I thought I'd start by sharing an image from our last day at Mana Pools.  Enjoy!

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.

Location: Mystic, CT, USA
Tech: Canon 1Dx, 500mm f/4L IS II + 1.4x TC, 1/1000 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 400

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!

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 ;)

If you're not following +Penny Robartes you're missing out on a very talented wildlife photographer.

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.

The silence and stillness that surrounded the lake was, to say the least, pretty magical as we approach it. We can hear the flamingoes, pelicans, and other water birds that are on and around the lake, but whether it was myself unconsciously dimming out the sounds or the forest absorbing them, it only added to the allure and ancient feel about the area to me.

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 along the water's edge...

A female rhino and a sub-adult.

With the morning mist in the distance and hovering over the surface of the lake, it was such a special moment and scene to witness and be a part of.

The sub-adult slowly started moving away from the female, eating the lush grass as he made his way to a piece of water that was detached from the lake.

My heart was starting to pound as I knew what image I now wanted to capture. There and then. It was so clear in my mind.

Under my breath, I was constantly willing the rhino to approach the water and drink its fill. The reflection would be perfect. The misty, bright overcast morning would make it crystal clear. I closed my eyes and I could see it.

The silence in the car was overpowering. We were all hoping for the same thing. The silence was only broken by the occasional whisper; 'Go on, go to the water...'

And the rhino did.

And it was perfect.

I captured the exact moment I envisioned; that second where the rhino starts to lift his lips from the water's surface... the ripples created from the movement...that moment of awareness from the rhino.
