Gailen Mapes86,523Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera I-L - 5 of 27Note: 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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-05-05 10:36:46173010

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501848

Of the five islands that make up Channel Islands National Park, Santa Rosa Island offers by far the largest area to explore. Backcountry logistics and the size of the island make it difficult to see it all. However, by staying two nights at the nice campground, I covered a good amount of territory on day hikes within 48 hours. Although the island looks barren from a distance, it harbors a great variety of rare plant species and beautiful sights that I illustrate in this post.

Not a single footprint on this perfect white sand beach! Con Dao islands have the last pristine, undeveloped, coastline in Vietnam. Traveling there, you feel you've made it to the end of the country. Less than two decades ago, only link to the mainland was a 24-seat helicopter that flew a few days a week.

Google+ is blocked in Vietnam, wondering why since Facebook isn't, but I just figured it out (after more than a week) that the mobile app works.

Saguaro National Park's East Unit’s 8-mile Cactus Forest Scenic Loop Drive is a paved road with several trailheads, scenic vistas, and pullouts. It is quieter than the Bajada Loop drive, except on weekends, when it is popular with cyclists. Compared to the West Unit, the saguaro cactus are not as numerous, and the mountain views less striking, but the desert environment at places feels more lush. In the south, the first half-mile of the Tanque Verde Ridge trail starting from the Javelina Picnic Area is a beautiful area to catch a sunset, once you climb past a small rocky outcrop.

Mid-day, when the light is too harsh for landscapes, I try close-ups. How about the harsh light ? I look for shade, and if i don't find any, I make it using whatever is at hand, a reflector, a jacket, my own shadow. Saguaro National Park Trip report: http://qtl.us/1bmF6V6

This March, I visited Saguaro National Park in less than five days, including travel from home. To show that an extensive National Park photography trip doesn’t need to be lengthy nor expensive, rather than describing the locations visited, in this post I detail my itinerary, logistics, and costs, which totalled $314 all-inclusive: http://qtl.us/1bmF6V6

It was an awesome contrast between the hot desert (high in the 100Fs) and the marine environment. On Santa Rosa Island, I could barely stay warm even hiking fast and wearing three layers because of the constant 30 knot winds.

The common theme, though, was the impact of the drought. In Death Valley, the salt formations were in the worst shape I had ever seen (picture from Cottonball Basin is the best I could find). The Channel Islands turned brown one month earlier than during my past visit.

For more current updates, I suggest you follow my Instagram feed at https://instagram.com/terragalleria since Instagram does not let me post on a G+ page.

In late March, I returned to Saguaro National Park to hike some of the trails I missed during my previous visits. I found some of the best views of the saguaro cactus forest along the Sendero Esperanza trail. The Sonoran desert can be incredibly lush and beautiful under the right conditions!

For most visitors, Virgin Islands National Park is defined by the beaches on the north shore. However, although the whole island of St John is only 20 square miles, it offers a great variety of terrain besides the iconic beaches. In this post, I suggest explorations of the wilder and less visited south shore of St John.

Because the star attraction of Redwood National Park are the redwood forests, it is easy to overlook the coastal part of the park. However, Redwood National Park is only one of two US National Parks where you can drive to the edge of the Pacific Ocean. With little hiking, you can discover a great variety of settings to photograph. In this post, I describe the highlights of this coastline which stretches for no less than 65 miles in Northern California.

The Lone Cypress of Pebble Beach is possibly the most photographed tree in North America. Most photograph it from the overlook or the platform, from which it tends to merge with the background. I scrambled down the slope to detach it against the sky.

As mentioned yesterday, here is what the scene looked at Gold Bluff Beach in Redwood National Park 10 minutes before the spectacular sunset. I tried to do my best with available elements to keep the eye moving: foreground grasses diagonal to right, then dark to light line towards mysterious receding cliff.

The color came seemingly out of nowhere at Gold Bluff Beach in Redwood National Park, as 10 minutes before the whole sky appeared grey, as you'll see in tomorrow's post. I made this photograph just as the wave was receding, leaving some sand wet to create a reflexion of the brilliant sky.

Redwood National Park is as year-round as it gets, with the smallest temperature differences between winter and summer. Having visited the park before in the other seasons, after my February visit, I've concluded that winter is not the best time. However, there are always things that you do not see in other seasons, such as those bare alders on the trail to Enderts Beach.

In Redwood National Park, a 1-mile RT trail winds down to Enderts Beach. At the south end of the beach, the richest tide pools in the area are supposed to be there. According to my tide table, I arrived well within one hour of low tide, but maybe because of a combination of high surf and moderate tide, I didn't see any tide pool life.

If you are not paying attention, all the redwood forests may look similar, but they each have a distinct character. The Simpson-Reed Grove in Jedediah Redwoods State Park feels like a jungle rainforest, with many fallen redwoods acting as nurse trees.

Aerial view of the Meadowlands in San Jose CA after yesterday's hail storm (temp was 50F, so no snow!).  We had more than an inch of hail, but by the time it stopped raining, most of it had melted. The kids sled in the backyard. I don't expect to see that again in my lifetime.

During my trip to Redwood National Park, I tried to look for non-redwoods subjects as well. I noticed the bare trees on the shore of the Smith River. The current created periodic side waves. I clicked the shutter just as it overlapped the rock in the corner, creating a diagonal leading line.

The fog moving in and out from Enderts Beach Overlook in Redwood National Park would have made for a great time-lapse. Since a half-moon would rise in the middle of the night I used a computer-controled set-up to adjust the exposure. Unfortunately, camera disconnected from computer after less than one hour for unknown reasons.

How I made this image (& previous one): 1. Compose with tripod and open shutter for 30s, ISO 1600, wide open 2. Use powerful flashlight (I had 1600 lumens, XM-L T6 LED) as headlamp not enough, and a warming gel over light since LED light is too cold. 3. While illuminating the scene stand sideways from the camera to create cross-lighting 4. To avoid "hot spots", illuminate areas near you more briefly than further areas.
