Malibu, CA
That's the Pacific ocean under all of those clouds. The stream of light running through it is traffic from the Pacific Coast Highway.
I'm pretty sure I uploaded this one before but it wasn't in my album..here it is again.

Intrepid, NYC

A forgot my tripod connector when I went out to shoot some sunset shots of NY, lucky for me there was a railing that I could place my D7000

So I snapped away 3 exposures and merged in Photomatix, hope you like the result with a little PS tweaking

What have you forgotten when going out on a photo shoot? And how do you manage to shoot never the less

Actually I'm a still life and portrait photographer trapped in the body of a landscape and architecture photographer...
Oh and don't forget to read the Jeff Gaydash interview in my previous post:) https://plus.google.com/107742567767125793693/posts/231sBComyQx#107742567767125793693/posts/231sBComyQx

Seljalandsfoss, Iceland

Here is an image from Iceland for those of you who were chomping at the bit :-))). Seljalandsfoss is fairly easy to access and you can walk behind the falls (You can see the trail in the larger view).

How was this image created?

This image is a manual blend or 3 exposure - One for the foreground and 2 for the sky. The manual blend used our iHDR process. Strong wind made shooting these falls difficult and this was one of few times we saw blue skies in Iceland. Ideally I would have shot these falls late in the evening, but weather and fixed schedule limited our shooting opportunities.

Leading lines formed by the grass edge on the right sides was used to lead the viewers eye towards the fall. I have tried to keep the colors as natural as possible...so those of you planning a visit may get some idea of what to expect.

I was in this area of New Mexico to see Ship Rock, but on this day the sky and sunset light wasn't most interesting over the rock. Just as I was about to give up on having anything interesting in the foreground, a small herd of horses showed up out of nowhere and quickly grazed across the scene, silhouetted against the light of the setting sun.

Wildebeest on a steep bank at the Talek River ... running to escape a lion attack. Note the animals at the top of the bank ... they'd been waiting their turn to cross when the attack occurred.

I've shown this picture as part of my Seascapes album before, but since it fits the "Sky Sunday" theme curated by +Matt Soave and +Simone Linke, I thought I might as well show it again. Cheers!



Uploading for #MountainMonday

Laguna de los Tros
An beautiful glacier-fed lake nestled on the foothills of Cerro Fitz Roy, the iconic peak that epitomizes the Patagonian Andes and Parque Nacional Los Glaciares.

Words cannot describe the stunning scenery that accompanies this location, especially during amazing weather similar to what I experienced on this fine fall day in early March in Argentina.

From the distance, only the characteristic outline of the peak is visible, looking rather tempting as one approaches it closer and closer. Then comes the steep climb, ascending close to 500m in a span of just 2km on a narrow trail. Thankfully, my early start ensured very little clouds and a speedy climb lasting only 45 minutes.

As I trudged towards the final crest and crested it, I was just blow away by the view. In front of me, lying in a slowly-forming glacial cirque was the teal blue waters of Laguna de los Tros, its surface still rippled by the gentle caressing breeze. And dropping right into it, was the bright Glaciar de los Tros. And to the left, falling into a depression was the larger Glaciar Rio Blanco, poised to drop into Laguna Sucia.

And standing stoically behind all this, Cerro Fitz Roy, its slivery tip still covered by the morning clouds, while strong mountain winds held back a mass of overcast rain-bearing clouds from the Pacific.

A dreamy view of which I spent a lot of time shooting!

Stopping for a Picnic

I'm stopping for a digital picnic while waiting for various videos to upload to share with y'all. Here's some upcoming how-to, behind-the-scenes, and more videos:

- New Speech at Google HQ: "Artists and the Internet: Digitally Extending Your Natural Self" (coming later today!)
- Our Hangout #9 that was live the other night. The render is taking forever...
- New Behind-the-scenes with a model in China
- A cool video of the biggest camera store in Beijing
- Two new videos I shot while in Switzerland - some strange shooting-from-train situations
- A new video from Iceland when I set up in some rocky outcroppings for the sunrise
- A super-duper-secret-scary place south of the Great Wall you won't believe...

What is Plus Extract?

It's your DAILY dose of TOP Google Plus photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation. This means that the DAILY TOPs are NOT based solely on popularity, and users with a small number of followers have a chance to be featured in the TOP. We use Google+ API for the automatic steps; Jarek Klimek is responsible for curation and communication with the authors.

We strongly respect the authors and their rights. +Jarek Klimek contacts every photographer featured in all DAILY TOPs and if any author decides that he/she doesn't want to be featured in the TOP, we respect this absolutely.

Catherine Hall About us and Google+

Google+ has flourished into a bustling online community for photographers – and one reason is the exceptional contribution of early adopters such as Jarek Klimek, Editor of PhotoExtract magazine.

Jarek had the foresight to research the new social network and created an authoritative list of photographers to follow on Google+.

His viral list has not only become one of the top referring resources of photography trailblazers, it is also shared and watched by leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble and Darren Rowse.

Jarek has helped introduce the work of great photographers to Google+ photography enthusiasts and I was very excited to share his insights with viewers on TWiT Photo.
