Justin Spelbrink12,576It's been a few years since I had a photowalk at Natural Bridges for Halloween, so let's do it again! Yes, I know it's the day after, but I can't make it on a weekday ;) I'll try to bring a pumpkin or two, feel free to bring one too. Meet around 4 or so, Sunset is around 6:12PM. We can also check out the Monarchs and see how they are doing. Feel free to come earlier if you want. Look for a group of photographers/people with carved pumpkins on the beach ;) If folks have other ideas to check out earlier in the day, I am game, I will probably be at the coast all day checking things out. #photowalk  Halloween at Natural Bridges2014-11-01 16:00:006  
Cynthia Pyun16,775Current details for this weekend's Photowalk: *Time*: Meet between 9am and 9:15am Group Photo by 9:30am *Where*: West entrance parking lot: Chapparel Ranger's Station...and +Justin Spelbrink can verify that this is correct: http://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm *The walk* is about 4+miles roundtrip. Not strenuous that I can tell, and there's a path. *Bring* your comfy hiking/walking shoes for a forest, a hat for the heat and water and snacks as you walk. Bring some lunch packed in the car. We'll plan on having a picnic for lunch. Everyone is welcome to bake some cookies ;-) but for sure, I'll do them and have them packed on Saturday night :-) Any camera you bring will be fine. For some of you that like to pack heavier, bring some filters since it's supposed to be sunny. *Weather* as of right now, it will be in the mid 70's during the day and partly cloudy Doesn't look as if there's a big mosquito problem, but there are bugs so plan your wardrobe and bug stuff accordingly. Let me know if I've forgotten anything, +Robyn Peters and +Justin Spelbrink since you've been there before and might know a lot more. Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone! Oh and @101240786246366714589 are you still considering an ocean view to cool off? Could you add that info or send it to me and I'll put it here. I have to go to Salinas for dinner but everyone else might like the stop. ================================================== The condors are usually up early in the AM, so unless you are camping, you probably will not see them.  You cannot drive from one end of the park to the other. Period. The roads do not go through. Plan on about 2 hours for the drive, especially since the last part is a small windy road. I am open to ideas, helpful hints from those of you that have been there before (+Justin Spelbrink that means you) and we'll come up with a final plan. Just get this on your calendar. Yeah, I know, it's Mother's Day weekend.  Planning your outing: http://www.nps.gov/pinn/planyourvisit/things2know.htm Things to do: http://www.nps.gov/pinn/planyourvisit/things2do.htm And you should note that the Bat caves will be closed this month while the hachlings are being nurtured.   Any other suggestions? I'll keep editing this as I get more info. Co-conspirators: +Robyn Peters and +Lisa Donchak, are you in?Pinnacles National Park2013-05-12 18:30:009

Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714429109

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114082131

Barry Blanchard555,753My Central California Photographers Circle.You may already be in this, and if you want out.. just let me know. You may know someone who is not in this circle, just let me know.You may want to be in this circle, just let me know. In order to be in this circle, you must be somewhere along the Central California coast. This is the circle that I share to when weather conditions appear to be decent for coastal photography. So, if you live north to Marin, south to Big Sur or east to Sacramento... and would like to be included (pinged) when something happens... let me know. I will update this circle over the next week then share it from time to time.~BB2012-10-02 16:55:175036126

Ryan Lynham11,576Still having trouble finding G+ to be an active photography community?This is a list of the major players in my photography circles. Add this puppy and I think you'll solve your problem. In fact you might be overwhelmed and wish you had only added a few from it, which is another good idea, depending on your sitch, and what not.The standard circle share spiel: If you want to be in this circle and you aren't, then start sharing good photography and participating. Interaction on my posts / posts of people I follow helps, too. Easy peasy. Please don't ask me to add you. Thanks!Cc-ing +Darren LoPrinzi, who was looking for some good folks to follow. : )2012-07-30 18:23:5920234010

Cynthia Pyun11,332Share a circle DayOk, so I made that one up. But as I've been honored to be a part of several circles in the past, I wanted to share one that I watch all the time. This is my Bay Area circle. Disclaimer, it's not perfect and it's not all of you wonderful people I've met. I did this awhile ago, and am happy to add folks along the way :=)If you live in CA/northern CA and I've had a chance to remember you do, I've probably added you to this circle. It started out because I wanted to see what other photowalks were going to pop up in the area. Thanks to +elizabeth hahn and her +Northern California Photowalks (and More), my Google Calendar is automatically updated :=)But if you are new to Google Plus, and you want to see some great work and find out about a photowalk in the Bay Area, check out Elizabeth's calendar and add it to yours, and go ahead an use this circle to see some amazing and talented work!2012-06-15 17:13:151179013
Elizabeth Hahn19,891With the anniversary of G+ just a couple weeks away, I went through all the people in my circles, and made one just for people I've HIRL'd with.  This is a circle of 200 that with the exception of one person, I didn't even knew existed a year ago.  (the one person was one of the most recent I have met, too).  If I've forgotten you, please send me a message!!!!!  I've gone through my circles a few times trying to catch everyone.. but I still probably missed someone.I didn't follow any blogs, I didn't follow photographers on that other social network, I pretty much shot on my own.  In the last year I've been on more photowalks than I can count.  (I would guess over 40, but I haven't sat down and really counted).  Some of the folks I've just shook their hand and said hello, other's I've spent days in the desert, mountains and beaches of California with.  There are people from at least 4 different countries, pro photographers, casual hobby photographers, but they all have enough passion for it to get out and share their love of it with others.  While much photography, especially landscape photography is done alone, it also can be a really fun group sport.Add the circle if you wish, pass if you don't.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for changing my view of photography, and help me learn so much in the last year.  You all rock!!!!!2012-06-12 22:22:15200102119
Thomas Hawk2,494,0652,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 4 of 4 (Ro-Z)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333gPart 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here:  http://goo.gl/dX7lRPart 3 of 4 (La-Ro) here:  http://goo.gl/MP1Q2This is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the fourth circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ro-Z. A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you2012-06-07 14:58:20499189204457

It's been a few years since I had a photowalk at Natural Bridges for Halloween, so let's do it again! Yes, I know it's the day after, but I can't make it on a weekday ;)

I'll try to bring a pumpkin or two, feel free to bring one too. Meet around 4 or so, Sunset is around 6:12PM. We can also check out the Monarchs and see how they are doing.

Feel free to come earlier if you want. Look for a group of photographers/people with carved pumpkins on the beach ;) If folks have other ideas to check out earlier in the day, I am game, I will probably be at the coast all day checking things out.

From last weekend's Supermoon outing. This was looking the other direction towards the Sunset. It was nice and still where we were, but it was fun watching the fog flow through the forest and disappear as it dropped over the hills.

Supermoon July 2014

We headed up to Russian Ridge to catch the Supermoon (perigee full moon, when the Moon is closet to Earth in its orbit). Unfortunately, there were some trees in the way in the spot we chose, so we missed the moonrise on the horizon. After it got above the trees, I was able to get this shot. Still, it was a great evening in the hills :)

Mark your calendars, the next one is August 10th!

Pigeon Point Lighthouse

A few weekends ago we headed to the coast to check out the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, among other things. There was not a cloud in the sky, but it was very windy. What to do when there’s no clouds? Grab the ND filters and start playing with longer exposures :)

For this image I used a 10-stop ND filter. See if you can spot the fisherman. More info on the lighthouse here: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=533

On our last morning, we headed down to Oneloa bay to see the Sunrise. It was really nice, with the clouds lighting up in interesting patterns. Since it was so windy, I thought a long exposure might look cool, and I think it does look pretty neat ;)

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

- Robert Frost

The Cave

The black sand beach of Wai'anapanapa has all kinds of neat little hidden places to explore...like this lava tube cave leading to the ocean

Sitting on the Edge

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.
- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr

From Drakes Beach in Point Reyes a few weekends ago. Enjoying the nice solitude at the beach.

Draining

Another LE from McClure's beach in Point Reyes. I was standing by +Larry Nienkark for this shot (he got a great one too!) up on a rocky promontory that juts out from the beach. There is a perfect view of the huge waves crashing on the rocks from up here.

This otherworldly seascape comes to you from McClures Beach in Point Reyes National Seashore here in Northern California. I visited this weekend with friends and we had perfect weather. This is from the top of a rocky promontory that juts out from the beach. From up here there were great views of the huge waves. You gain respect for the Sea when you observe how powerful it can be.

Vernazza

I was lucky enough to visit the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) last year. This is one of the five, Vernazza. There is a trail linking all five towns and it is a great one along the Mediterranean coast. Pro tip: You can get Gelato in each town to recover from the hike =D

Uvas Canyon

Went to this park a few weekends ago to see how the water levels were...they were pretty low. Hopefully after the rain storms we are getting the water level will rise.

Mystery

The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine,a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.
― Carl Sagan, Cosmos

From a Big Sur trip a few weeks ago. This is actually the Sun, not the Moon. I used filters to reduce the light entering the camera by 13 stops and this is what the world looks like after 500 seconds.

Bodgea Head

A couple of weekends ago, I took a trip up to Bodgea Head for a photowalk with a bunch of folks, some familiar and some new. This was my second trip to Bodega Head and besides eating some great Clam Chowder, we had a great day to explore the bluffs and the beaches. As sunset approached, a few wispy clouds started to appear, so we could get an interesting sunset.

Sweet Waves in Pacifica

Sweet waves in Pacifica today!  After checking out Rockaway Beach, we hiked over Mori Point to Pacifica Pier. Forecast was for 15 footers and they sure looked (and felt) pretty big to us!

The Lost Coast

This past Memorial Day we visited The Lost Coast and the Sinkyone Wilderness area. This is an amazing place and somewhat difficult to get to down a one-lane, steep, slippery dirt road. But when you get there, there are no other people and great campsites and trails to explore!

Watching

On the way back from Big Sur, I saw this guy sitting at the very top of a tree intently watching a field next to Highway 156.

Good Morning

September 1 @ 6:40 AM from Four Jeffrey campground in the Eastern Sierra. A good morning indeed. Up here is was nice and crisp and clear. Down in the valley it was quite smoky and hazy from the Rim Fire up in Yosemite.

San Simeon Bay

Before we headed up to Hearst Castle, we stopped by San Simeon Bay to check out the Pier and the trail along the cliff out to the point.
