Gailen Mapes65,217Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  M-O - 19 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-06-19 04:45:41180409

Tara Meyer-Robson3,023HIGHER THOUGHT/INSPIRING CIRCLE Created by +Tara Meyer-Robson  (1st Edition)This is my first circle share, so I wanted to make it a great one! Please SHARE and LIKE to be added to version 2! I’ve realized how important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that allow you to dream, that kick you in the behind on days when you are ready to give up, and who are always willing to look for the higher meaning in the lessons of life. In this group, you will find those that will do all of the above!This is a circle of truly amazing, intelligent, and spiritual individuals. Most people are either personal friends or others that I've been interacting with here in the few months I have been on G+ and I’ve connected with many of these people on other networks, too.  All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from all over the world and have many different backgrounds: some of them are authors, writers, bloggers, and creatives; all are inspiring people who love to connect to a higher frequency. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++If you’d like to be added to my circles, it’s very easy: you can certainly keep engaging with my posts, or keep sharing great content of your own or others.To connect with me, here are the other places you will find me: My Website: www.TaraMeyerRobson.comOn here, you can sign up to get a free healing meditation and to get the best I have to offer on how to shift your life and heal your body by understanding the underlying cause. That’s my passion and what I do best, so please feel free to connect with me there. Twitter: http://twitter.com/tarameyerrobsonFacebook: http://facebook.com/tarameyerrobsonLinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/tarameyerrobsonFor Authors: http://HowtoBeaBestsellingAuthor.comWhen my book first came out, I really struggled trying to get sales. Desperate to find an answer, I studied what other bestselling authors were doing to drive their books up the bestseller lists, and I put together a formula that I thought might work. It did, and it cost me almost nothing to do. After helping other authors do the same, I packaged the whole thing up so I could share the information with as many authors as possible. For Affiliates/Writers/Bloggers: If you are interested in earning 75% on my products, I am on www.clickbank.com  - here’s my Vendor Spotlight: https://theflow6.accounts.clickbank.com/spotlightProfile.htm?f=spot&v=theflow6. Right now, affiliates are making about $62 a sale on my Bestseller in 1 Day! Program. I offer a ton of Affiliate Tools, such as approved Google ads that have converted for me, a list of Google keywords, sidebar ads, and more.  If you are a writer or a blogger, this is a great opportunity for you to have a high-quality product to promote and monetize your blog. If you’ve never monetized your blog before, feel free to reach out to me and I’ll help. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++MY BRAND-NEW COMMUNITYMind-Body Healing for Everyone: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103956739698618922440Join us to learn how to translate what your body is te2014-03-12 19:34:34500351525

Eileen O'Duffy11,884This is my Irish circle of friends. These people are either Irish or living and working in Ireland. They include a mixture of photographers, artists, writers, educators, technology, business people and more. Some don’t post very often, some only share limited to their circles. But they all have one thing in common: I know them, they are good people and genuine people and I always enjoy their posts. If I’ve left somebody out by mistake, please let me know. I’m so delighted to have met some of you through this Ireland community over the last week, I’d never have found you otherwise! 2012-12-20 23:22:44362215

The Golden Coast
The Giant's Causeway, County Antrim

A re-edit of my image the golden coast.
This was the sight I was greeted with as I started to run down to the hexagonal columns of the Giant's Causeway and I had to stop and take shot, it was definitely one of the most awesome sunsets I have ever seen.

~Dunquin Pier~
Kerry, Ireland

The sun sets at Dunquin Pier. After three hours waiting, the evening light began to glow. Here is where you can get a boat out to the Skellig Islands, about a 40 minute boat trip.

Sunrise, by the ocean, with the sky blazing. There's not much better then that, living and experiencing what the world offers, surely that is living life.

~Farmers Walk~
Kerry, Ireland

I arrived at this spot over looking Puffin Island, and the Skelligs in the background, around midday, to scout the area for a night shot (which unfortunately didn't pan). I was there about ten minutes when these two farmers can walking down the lane with their sheep.
When I saw them turn to walk down this little path I couldn't believe my luck, it made this photo come alive. Although the photo is not technically perfect, the focus was a little soft (I got to excited lol), I felt the overall image more than made up for that. You can plan a shot for hours but sometimes its about being in the right place at the right time

I'm honoured and humbled that one of my images was selected to be printed in the upcoming Plus One Collection III book beside many awesome photographers.
Funds raised from this project will go to the Saving Eliza campaign. Eliza O'Neill is a happy 4-year-old who, because of a degenerative genetic disease called Sanfilippo syndrome, may not live into her teens. If she doesn’t get the treatment she needs, she will lose the ability to speak within 6 months and suffer irreversible brain damage within a year and a half.
More information and contributions towards the project can be made here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii

~Dawn over Beginish Island and Valentia Harbour~
Valentia Island, Ireland

Beginish is an island in Valentia Harbour, in south west Kerry, Ireland. Beginish Island is currently uninhabited, the last remaining residents being 2 elderly brothers who left the island in the 1990s.

The island has numerous archaeological sites, including a Viking settlement occupied between the 10th and 12th centuries,[3] which consists of a circular stone dwelling, outhouse and a midden. Also occupying the highest point on the western end of the island is a block hut known as "Pilots lookout", which was used in the 19th and early 20th century to spot ships coming into Dingle bay which may have required pilotage into Valentia harbour

~Torc Waterfall~
Kerry, Ireland

Decided to try get a different composition of Torc Waterfall then the standard shot and this is the result. Happy with the way it turned out.

Torc Waterfall is one of the jewels of the Killarney area. A majestic cascade through a leafy valley, it's a place of wonderful calm.

I used +Michael Breitung's Dreamy photo technique on this photo and very happy with the result. You can purchase it from here: http://www.mibreit-photo.com/tutorials/dreamy-photos.html

~Kerry Cliffs~
Kerry, Ireland

A windy day up on the Kerry Cliffs. Beyond the cliffs on the left you can see Puffin Island and the two islands in the distance are the Skelligs, which were created of the same 350–million-year-old Devonian Sandstone that runs right through the backbone of Kerry - from the county’s south-western headlands to the shores of Killarney's lakes.

Hope you enjoy :)

On my third day in Kerry I camped just down the hill from the Kerry Cliffs. You can camp up closer to the cliffs, literally ten steps from the edge (there is fencing up though), but the close to the cliff edge meant there was a constant fierce wind blowing and would make it hard(er) to sleep.
This was the view from the tent site, looking over to Portmagee and Valentia Island. Not a bad place to rest the head for the night. I'll try get an image I took from the Kerry Cliffs up later.

~Ladies View~
Kerry, Ireland

My first sunrise down in Kerry was spent at Ladies View, located in Killarney National Park, name during the 1861 visit of Queen Victoria to Ireland, when it was named upon the exclamations of her awestruck entourage of ladies. The monarch was a guest at nearby Muckross House.

Worth getting up at 5am for I think. Hope you all enjoy :) http://www.alanowensphotography.com/ladies-view

Hello all! Just back from a great trip photographing and camping around Kerry, in south-west Ireland. A lot of images to process but first I need sleep. 
Here is a quick shot of me under Torc Waterfall in Killarney National Park. I never thought this waterfall was that big looking at pictures of it but once I saw it I knew I had been mistaken, so I took this shot to give some scale to the waterfall.
Proper shots to come over the next few days :)

Thesis is finished. In celebration of this and the fact I haven't been out shooting anything new in ages, I'm off to Kerry next week for 5 days, hoping photograph a handful of the many awesome locations down in the south of Ireland. Fingers crossed for some nice conditions and I hope everyone has a great week :)

Awesome capture by +Koveh Tavakkol!

D A W N

I spent a few days camping and Jeeping through Colorado with a few friends. We spent this evening up at Clear Lake in the San Juan Mountains. The wildflowers around the lake itself were lagging behind this year, so I did some exploring in the valley below the lake. Fortunately there was some decent patches of flowers throughout the area, but we ended the evening with pretty clear skies. 

Fearing the same for sunrise, I decided to get up early at around 3AM and head back down to the wildflowers I had scouted the night before. It was a bit windy, but I managed to get some breaks shortly before dawn, capturing this shot of a beautiful patch of Colorado Columbine.___Awesome capture by +Koveh Tavakkol!

Hello all!
Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I'm in the middle of writing up my thesis. I hope to get down to Kerry in the next few weeks in order to get some new shots but until then here is an image of South Sea Stack lighthouse in Wales which I don't think I've posted before..

~Bluebells~
Townley Hall, County Louth

I went out to shoot the bluebells carpeting the ground at a forest near myself, unfortunately they were not as numerous as I hope but I did manage to get some nice close ups with nice soft light hitting the bluebells.. I added so textures to this photo just to add another dimension.

~Oceanfall~
Dunseverick coast, County Antrim

The sun broke from behind rain clouds casting a glow across the sky during the evening along the Dunseverick coast and this waterfall enters the sea.

This was quite a tricky image to capture requiring several exposures blended. One for the clouds, another from the sun, another for the water and rocks and a final one was required from the rock in shadow. It was to easy to think of all these things since I was thinking about nearly losing my new lee filter holder.
A few minutes prior I had dropped it in the river above the waterfall and thought it was lost. I tried to see if I could see it falling down the waterfall, then I decided to  see I it was in the water where it dropped (even though I doubted it was there since I had to move the camera out of the way first to try grab it). Low and behold it was there!! Unbelievable... more »

Murlough Bay
Antrim, Northern Ireland

Murlough is a lovely bay situated in a secluded part of the county Antrim Coast. It is reached by a steep, winding road and offers superb views of Fair Head, Rathlin island and on a clear day Scotland.

Murlough Bay is well known for its flora, fauna and geology - a curved limestone cliff protects one of the few remaining old 'natural' temperate woodlands in Ireland.

Ballintoy Harbour
County Antrim, Northern Ireland

A stormy evening at Ballintoy Harbour yesterday. I was crouched on the side of this hill as the wind was blowing strong, with the sun shining through under the clouds. Soon after the rain came and I had to retreat to my car. 
This harbour was also used in Game of Thrones, the habour at the Iron Islands I believe.

~Rainbows End~
Portbradden, County Antrim

We were on our way to Dunseverick as the rain was falling, suddenly we turned a corner and this awesome rainbow appeared. We quickly drove down this little road and up up at Portbradden, a beautiful spot located beside White-park Bay. I quickly hoped out and captured this shot before the rainbow disappeared. Wish I had time set up my tripod but you gotta adjust to the quickly changing conditions so I shot this one handheld. It came out not to bad. 
Hope you like it

This was the sight I was greeted with as I started to run down to the hexagonal columns of the Giant's Causeway and I had to stop and take shot, it was definitely one of the most awesome sunsets I have ever seen.

Glendasan River

Taken along the Glendasan river on a summers day, meaning I had to wait twenty minutes for the rain to stop so I could get this shot. In the background you can see a round tower, part of an early Christian ecclesiastical settlement that was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century.

Filters and holders galore!

I hope to get out in the next few days if the weather clears to get some shots, exciting. Talk about delayed gratification haha Have a gooden' everyone! :)

~Lighthouse In A Rock Pool~
St. Johns Point Lighthouse, County Down

I had scouted out this location when I arrived, looking for rock pools which would give me a nice reflection of the lighthouse. I had come here planning to shoot the lighthouse at the blue hour, which I did (see here: http://www.alanowensphotography.com/st-johns-point-lighthouse), however when the sun began to set and the sky started to light up I had to get a couple of shots in. 

This is a blend of three exposures, one for the sky, one for the lighthouse and rocks and another shot taken with a polarizer to get a view into the rock pool.

Hope you enjoy

~A Moment Of Calm~
Derryclare Lough, County Galway

Took a spur of the moment trip up to Galway during the summer with the fam and before we went home I managed to convince them to take a trip up to this well known lake. As we got closer the weather got worse and worse, fortunately the rain eased a bit when I got there but the 12 Pins Mts behind were shrouded in mist. Not ideal conditions but I knew a nice long exposure shot would work well here and I'm quite pleased with the result, the long exposure calmed the water and made the island in the middle of the lake the focus point. 
Ya gotta know how best to use the conditions to your advantage is something I'm continually learning.

Enjoy and share!

Also sorry I haven't had time to look at other peoples pics of late, this masters course, what can I say!

Note: There was small light beams from the lighthouse but I took some artistic license and extended them in photoshop
