Another great circle for Google+!

Here is version 7 of the Nature & Landscape Photographers circle. I reviewed about 700 profiles for this update and selected the 375 photographers I liked best. There are about 130 new additions! I will list  them in the comments ...

To get into this circle, you don't have to re-share it, circle me back or send me candy. Just make sure to share awesome nature and landscape images. It's that simple!!!

Want to be (re-)considered for inclusion? Leave a comment or contact me directly, if you feel you meet the criteria: posting primarily good nature and landscape images on G+ on a regular basis. Next update: as soon as I find the time ;)

I am working on being at a few craft shows and farmer's markets this year, starting with the Westford Farmer's Market Vermont this Friday from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. I will have a huge assortment of blank note cards (including boxed sets), some matted prints, framed prints, and my favorite new thing: Flashbags! See my digital composite "Raven and Moon" or go to to see what other bags I currently have in stock.

Hope to see you there!

White-tailed Deer Fawn

Well instead of simply admiring the deer that graze in my backyard I finally took out my camera and photographed one.  I got photos of a buck, a doe, and now at long last, one of the fawns.  There are twins that visit my yard several times a week.  This one in particular was a bit more bold than its sibling, allowing me to capture a few shots before it retreated into the woods.

Ruddy Turnstone

This turnstone is from among my first images.  Shot with the Nikon D1, which produced a color cast with my after market lenses.  Most of my images from it requires a bit of fixing in post process.

I decided my digital image file system is completely inadequate so I've been sifting through my early work - starting there to develop a scheme that will work a bit better for me.

Anyone have input on how they file their libraries of digital images? Would love to hear!!  :) 

In any case, it's easy to go through the early stuff because I'm able to delete a lot.  :)   Initial thoughts are that I sure wish I had learned to use manual exposure for birds in flight a bit earlier!

Brandt's Cormorant

Haven't played a hand in a while...always found the blues in this image to be quite striking, thought it might fit the #BirdPoker "Blue" theme curated by +Phil Armishaw  today.
