Gailen Mapes65,741Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  M - 8 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 +2014-07-08 10:28:43134228CC G+

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 Mapes2014-04-08 10:52:561412211CC G+

After a monster week of writing my third novel, it's time to relax for the rest of this Friday. Red wine and pasta evening, with some crap TV.

Hope you all have a relaxing weekend.

Thanks Folks

Coot Ballet

I do love it when you get the mixture of perfect lighting, co-operative subject and rival males who taunt the male you are focussed on.

Although Coots are common species, they still make for challenging photography. I have plenty of creative blurred image images of coots doing this. So I was happy to get one that was a little more stopped in motion.

Introducing the Photographer # 5

Name: Piper MacKay
Photography area: Wildlife and Cultural Documentary

What I love about her work:
Everything. Fast becoming one of my favourite female wildlife photographers out there, you also cannot look past the wonderful portraits she does every year with some of local African tribes she visits.  

Her work tells of wondrous places and the story that accompanies each image, allows people who have never travelled to Africa, to get a feel of the continents soul.  Long may her travels continue.

Piper also leads tours to my home continent, so have a look at her website for all the latest offers.

Introducing the Photographer # 5

Name: Piper MacKay
Photography area: Wildlife and Cultural Documentary

What I love about her work:

Her work tells of wondrous places and the story that accompanies each image, allows people who have never travelled to Africa, to get a feel of the continents soul.  Long may her travels continue.

Piper also leads tours to my home continent, so have a look at her website for all the latest offers.

Bio from website:
Piper Mackay is a world, wildlife and cultural photographer, based in Long Beach, California. She believes compelling visual images help to protect what is right in the world. Her work takes her to very remote locations, living cross culturally in the villages and environments that she is documenting.
Her work is heavily concentrated on the African continent, a land she fell in love with when she first touched foot on it’s rich red soil. Her passion for the natural world has grown into a lifelong commitment to inspire others to explore, respect and preserve the beauty of our fragile planet.
She believes compelling work comes when you invest time, living the stories you are trying to tell. It is important to interact and gain the trust of those whose stories you are telling, especially when sensitive and complicated. The world has enough images of poverty, pain and disaster, much more needful is imagery that reveals the beauty and dignity of the communities that are, except by their geography and circumstances, very similar to our own. Powerful images help shape the view of the world and play an important role in disseminating how cultures and wildlife are coping with the rapid changes happening in the developing world.

Piper’s images have been displayed at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, The Museum of History and industry, and  The Art Wolfe gallery, as well as local galleries.  Her work has been featured in Nature and travel publication through representation of several photo agencies, including Rangefinder, Nature’s Best, Birders, and the World Wildlife Fund.  She is an independent photographer and available for assignment work.

Her prior career in the fashion industry, where she was deeply involved with combing color and texture, has greatly enhanced her approach to the unique look and feel of each culture and photographic subject. This also gave her a strong background in business and marketing.

Wonderful landscape here from +Sean Bagshaw. Suddenly wish I was outdoors.

Not my work. Please leave all your wonderful comments on Sean's stream

Heavy Atmosphere. Another image from the days I spent at Crater Lake in August under a blanket of forest fire smoke. At the time I wasn't particularly enjoying conditions, but it did allow me to create a series of images that show the lake looking unfamiliar and surreal. Forest fire is a natural and important part of the forest ecology in the northwest. For people it can range from inconvenient and oppressive to destructive and dangerous. But there is even beauty to be found in the otherwise challenging conditions.

Hand held, 1/125 second, f/11, ISO 400, 28mm focal length, polarizer.

An iconic Image, well captured.

Not my image, please leave all comments on +Dag Ole Nordhaug stream

Horseshoe Bend sunset. Arizona, June 2014.
A real classic location, for a reason! It's impossible to convey the feeling of lying on the rocks here, looking straight down into the Colorado river. But I did my very best in this shot. For those of you that haven't visited this place to give you a hint about the proportions: See the tiny white "dot" in the middle of the bend, on the other side of the river? Thats a fairly large boat that brought a dozen or so people for camping on the beach. Hope you like my image. Have a splendid sunday!

Introducing the Author #3

Name: Liesel Schwarz
Genre: Steampunk

Author's work that I have read: A Conspiracy of Alchemists (The Chronicle of Light and Shadow, #1) 

What I love about her work:
I am pretty new to the Steampunk genre and have currently only read one of Liesel's books. The other 2 are tee'd up on my kindle and I hope to enjoy them soon. Painting visual images of a fantasy world inspired by a steam era, mixed with Victorian technology, takes some doing. Liesel does this wonderfully as she transports you to the world of Eleanor "Elle" Chance, a dirigible pilot (dirigible - A self-propelled airship) and heads out on a cross-channel journey of discovery and adventure.

Great story telling with vivid imagery means an enjoyable reading experience. And that is what it's all about.more »

Bio from website:  
Liesel Schwarz writes fiction. A life-long fan of 19th Century Gothic literature, she is a hopeless romantic and loves Victorians, steampunk, fairies, fantasy monsters, the Fin de Siècle, and the correct way to drink absinthe.

She also likes Medieval stuff, pirates, zombies, space operas and all subjects in between. She is also currently busy with her doctorate in English and Creative Writing at Brunel University.

She lives in London in the United Kingdom and is definitely a cat person.

Deer Rut Time

That time of the year is drawing closer again. Over the next few months, as the wildebeest do their damnedest to drown in the Mara in Africa, the northern hemisphere is entertained by the various deer ruts.

Hoping for some icy cold, clear days to get the action as the stags roar to attract the ladies.

Taken at my local patch, Busy Park, Greater London.

If you are in the Cape Two area have a look into this offering

Wildlife Photography Symposium & Photo Processing Workshop

Listen up people of Cape Town and surrounds! On the weekend of 15 & 16 November the Wild Shots Wildlife Photography Symposium is taking place in your city. This promises to be an immensely inspiring event bringing together people connected through a shared passion for wildlife photography and conservation. Besides myself and my +Wild Eye compadre +Andrew Beck being scheduled as featured speakers at the event (among a list of various other speakers whom I feel humbled to be featured with), we will also be presenting a customised post-processing workshop for wildlife photographers of all levels (along with +Gerry Van der Walt) on the Sunday. You don't have to be a registered Wild Shots delegate to be able to enroll for the processing workshop, but you do get a discount if you are a delegate! I think this weekend is enough reason to make plans to BE in Cape Town even if you don't live there

All the info you need to signup for Wild Shots can be found here:
www.wildshotsevent.com

Lovely photo of the Martial Eagle by +Tim Driman 
Not my work. Please leave comments in the photographers stream.

The mighty Martial Eagle has to be my most favourite bird in all of Africa....

This was a young bird  and I would guess its age to about three years old.

When mature they are the largest eagle in southern Africa, with a wingspan up to 2.6 Metres and weighing in at about 6.5 Kilos.

Their food source covers snakes, large rodents, scrub hares, game birds,  small antelope  etc, and their very best treats are vervet monkeys which sit sunning themselves in the early morning high, in the canopies of large trees. 

The large, extremely sharp talons of these magnificent birds are hugely powerful and can easily piece the skull of a fully grown monkey!

I once saw a mature Martial Eagle take out a fully grown Steenbok ( African Antelope - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steenbok ) which it hoisted onto a high branch of a Maroela tree.  Over the course of the whole day, the Martial Eagle managed to consume the entire animal, leaving the skull and on a few bones held together with some of the skin!___Lovely photo of the Martial Eagle by +Tim Driman

Introducing the Photographer #4

Name: Dana Allen
Photography area: Wildlife and Landscapes

What I love about his work:
As you scan through any one of his portfolios, the simple colour and power of the images grab you. Whether it’s the large vistas of his landscape work or the strong emotive wildlife portraits he takes. You really feel like you are there in person, transported from your desk or couch, and dumped right into the scene. That is what good photography should do, and Dana is great at that.

Every image should tell a story and think that his work does that.

http://eco-fiction.com/climate-change-fiction-radical-hope-from-an-emerging-genre/ A new academic piece/article by Stephen Siperstein. This is in line with some of the issues with cli-fi that we've been discussing here in this group. Exploring this genre in the context of its historical canon, and not just its newer publicity as per the term "cli-fi", is an important part of understanding how this genre fits within a big realm of similar literature as an ecosystem. Also, it's important to stay open-minded and let the genre breathe and grow, and not try to harshly define it or put it into a corner.

That time of the year

Time is barrelling down towards another rut for the Red Deer. I am, as usual, making myself promises to get out and chase some new photographic stock. I do enjoy spending time with these lads as they go nuts for the attention of the ladies.

I will try harder to get out there this year...I got two reasonable photos last year, this being one of them.

Take in Bushy Park, Greater London.

WORLD ELEPHANT DAY

Thanks to the boys at AfricanTuesday for allowing me to be a little cheeky, and share some Asiatic Elephants for the day. They also need a mention.

This was taken in the Yala National Park in Sri Lanka. There are many physical differences between the two species, but their wonderful herd behaviour is similar and still a joy to watch. Here, two little ones are shielded from prying eyes and cameras.

WORLD LION DAY

Today is World Lion Day...
World Lion Day is an independent campaign working to highlight the importance of the lion globally and to raise lion conservation awareness worldwide.

"Saving the King of Beasts to Save Ourselves"
For more info on the initiative: www.worldlionday.com

Lion numbers in the wild have plummeted drastically in the last 100 years. As Dereck Joubert, filmmaker of the film The Last Lions and director of Great Plains Conservation, puts it: "A hundred years ago we think there were over a million lions. When I was born, maybe 450,000 lions roamed these plains. Today we niggle over if there are 20,000 or 35,000 lions left and forget to look over our shoulders at history."

#SaveSimba is it World Lion Day for Africans Lions. For us to admire and respect ... not hunt for fun.

A statistic that surprises many people now is how many wild lions remain in Africa.
In the 1900's there were at least 500.000 lions in Africa!
1960: 200.000 lions 
1980:   76.000 lions 
2012:   23.000 lions 
2013:   17.000 lions 
2014:   15.000 lions

The wild lion population within the next 10 to 15 years unless something dramatic is done about the situation. These figures represent a 95% decline in these predator populations. 

World Lion Day is the first annual campaign to raise much needed conservation awareness for the vulnerable African lion as well as the endangered Asiatic lion.

How sad would it be

As someone who was born and raised in Africa, I cannot imagine not having lion in our National Parks. Unless we tackle environmental and trafficking issues, we will loose them, along with other species

We cannot simply wish that they survive or hope that someone else will save them. Where are the flaccid and facile African leaders?

Methane Release

And so, the science and storyline behind my Kyle Gibbs thriller series has raised its head in the media again, the threat of Methane. I have always believed it to be a bigger threat than carbon. Nice to see it being mentioned.

Introducing the Photographer #3

Name: Christopher Dodds
Photography area: Wildlife Photography

What I love about his work:
This week I have the pleasure of introducing someone whose work I truly admire. His photos of the wilds of Canada and North America are breath-taking and he seems to work to the principle - the worse the weather, the better the photograph. 

Looking through his various portfolios he does seem to favour our feathered friends, but Bears and the odd Africa beastie also feature. You should definitely be following this fine Wildlife photographer

Bio from website:
Christopher Dodds is an inaugural member of the elite Canon Northern Explorer of Light and X-Rite Coloratti initiatives. He is a full-time freelance nature and wildlife photographer, nature photography workshop & safari leader/instructor, photography educator, blogger, and lecturer.

Chris first discovered his love of the great Canadian outdoors during family and boy scout camping, and canoe and backpacking trips, after moving to Canada from England when he was eight. By the time he was fourteen, Chris thrilled at freezing fleeting glimpses of birds and the resulting ability to study every detail of their intricate beauty. Chris' passion for photography has taken several paths through the years; photojournalism, studio portraiture, commercial and wedding photography all helped finance his early nature photography and build his stock image collection. He apprenticed and mastered both colour and black and white chemical darkrooms, but today embraces the computerized, digital workflow. Chris is passionate about capturing images of nature in an artistic, yet technically perfect, manner.

Old boy

This old guy was grazing by himself as they tend to do when they get to his age. He still had the attitude, but seemed to get used to our presence pretty quickly.

I was lazy here, and didn't feel like picking up the other camera with the shorter lens on it. So I went for tight crops of his face, ears and horns

Taken in the Masai Mara, Kenya.

The iridescent dart.

One of the first birds I identified by myself (aged 10) on our dam on the farm in South Africa. Way back in 78/79, using my new Roberts bird book.

This was taken more recently on a trip to Kruger. Lake Panic bird hide.
It is no 2 on my lifelist, only second to the Little Grebe (Dabchick)

Last look

One of my most favourite African pics that I have taken in recent years. This cheetah was one of two brother who crossed the road in front of the vehicle, and then walked up the side of the old river bed. 

I waited, hoping for a last look before they disappeared over the ridge. One obliged me. Taken in the best place on earth, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa,
