Gailen Mapes66,759Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 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 +2014-08-04 10:49:57148309CC 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   #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 +2014-03-04 11:24:39162528CC G+

Beginning of each yer, the opportunities to capture the Osprey while they are in the area is an excellent morning out.  It is hard not to be out in local area without seeing these on each trip.

Clarke's Grebe with fish 

These guys are tough to get the shots with the fish they come up with as 1) you don't know where they will pop up from diving and 2) most times they gulp what they have as soon as they break the surface.

I had a slightly better chance with this one as it was a large catch for her, but still just got lucky that I was scanning where she surfaced as in a burst of 5 shots over a second, this was the first, the second had only the tail, and the next 3 were clear of fish.

Calling all buggy people

I could use some assistance is identifying what this fly actually is.  I've tried various areas to try to identify, but failing miserably.   Hoping someone that is more insect inclined can assist.  

Only reason is so I can update tags in my catalog and name it correctly when/if I post it - having a difficult time locking this one down.  The eyes are throwing me off.

Appreciate anyone that can help guide into the right direction

A Forster's Tern shadowing the Black simmer from my previous post.  For some reason I guess it thought it could pick up what was missed.

While I would have been happier with a lower vantage point, it probably worked out the best as the background would have been cluttered with 'Bank Crap" that tends to build up from the trash left, etc along the stream.

The Black Skimmer allowed me to hang around for close to an hour while it skimmed up and down the stream.  The vantage spot I had was open enough to allow me to see it coming and track it before it cleared the reeds.

If I get there early enough....they pop up from time to time where you can grab one as they fly by.  Once the sun comes out, they pretty much hide on the edge of the reeds.

Channeled

Some long exposure fun.  Finding a rock to stand on just above the waves coming in does make it easier to focus on long exposures as you eliminate the need for concern around making sure you are out of the extremely wet zone.    Never been concerned about getting damp, but it does get fun when you lose track of the wave periods and get a little more soaked than expected (and possible put equipment at risk)

something simple, and probably not all that spectacular, but it was good to actually be able to see the sun as it rose for a change in SoCal.  More clouds (well, ANY clouds) would have made it better, but it is the sunrise instead of the standard gloom in June.

Every weekend I can, I head out just to get my head out of the thoughts that stick around from my M-F 9-5.  While most I run into at the Sanctuary I visit are concerned about seeing capturing certain birds and marking them in a little book to say they have seen them, I am more of an opportunistic wildlife "photographer".  I go out, and click at what is around me and will then research what I captured.  If I take enough photos of a species, I may start remembering them  and learning their habits/traits/biology to help the next time I see them, but I never really go out looking to make sure I come away with any particular birds shot.

This guy wasn't sure of me by any means.  He never moved his head, but it was like not matter where I was, he was looking right at me.  Almost in that Scooby-Doo eyes in a picture way........

Hopefully I am not the only person on the planet that when at the beach try to do some wave photography with their effort resulting in hundreds upon hundreds of photos in a single afternoon hoping for just one or two to be good.  I was pleased to see this one come out on the card from a few months ago when killing time waiting for the sun to start setting over the horizon.

A back-lit wave during   #goldenhour  coming into the beach.  I don't think many of the pictures I produce are worth printing, but this is one that I think might be close....

Waves at dawn, on the wrong coast

Even though the beaches facing east get the great light at dawn - the west coast beaches offer up their own opportunities when light starts to rise in the morning.  You get enough light where longer exposures are possible without to much of a concern of equipment.  Using a variable ND allows quick adjusting for the speed of the waves as the light would change over the first coupe of hours.

Love capturing these guys at dawn.  Going to be a couple of more months before the mornings shake off the humidity of the June Gloom in SoCal to get these conditions again.

Probably better viewed large

Beginning of each yer, the opportunities to capture the Osprey while they are in the area is an excellent morning out.  It is hard not to be out in local area without seeing these on each trip.

Haven't seen a purple one before.  Really waned to move the pads out of the way to really highlight the reflection, but this is the nature gave as a view (that and they would have thrown me out if I had reached into the fountain and started rearranging :)

Everyone have a good Monday

On a day with enough wind at the coast, you can find a spot that these guys are fishing and catch them in their hover pose....

A chance catch of a picture - a pair of Western Grebes (I think) with the male doing his utmost to impress the female.  He tried a couple of passes, but she could not have cared less about him at the time.

A very ominous view at first light

The views I can find in the area of a good sunrise without the 'touch of man' anywhere are tough, and for the most part have stopped trying to get out at first light for a dawn picture as I always seem to be taking the same point of view, from the same locations over and over. Sometimes I unintentionally arrive to the areas I like to shoot wildlife a little earlier than expected and will check the slivers of sky that I see for any signs of a decent overall landscape pic.

For a brief few moments this morning, the clouds looks as if they were going to give off something excellent, only to have this click and in the next breath be scattered into almost nothingness of a though by the wind.  Not your typical Dawn pic (and probably not all that spectacular that people would want to see in their stream), but hopefully enjoyable none the less.more »
