Last Saturday +Daniel Arndt and me went to the austrian side of the mystical, towerish mountain peaks of Drusenfluh, Raetikon. This little mountain region belongs to the most unique and impressive rock formations I know of. The peaks are almost towers, not hills or pyramids. Nevertheless it's possible to ascend them by ski through the huge "Sporatobel" (= couloir) in it's SE-flank. The couloir takes a right-turn curve in the upper section, which is invisible from the valley. It's a 6 hrs ascend with approx. 1'850m altitude difference - good enough for a perfect day.

This photo shows +Daniel Arndt, ascending the last steep meters up to the summit of the big Drusa tower (Grosser Drusenturm). I totally love the curved shape of the couloir, promising a fantastc ride down in knee-deep powder snow.

Complete this impression with the photo +Daniel Arndt posted a few days ago:

Going for a Magical Walk


And thus began the most epic two hours of my photographic life. This lion was returning from across the river having successfully hunted something, to fetch the rest of her pride. Credit goes to our guide for choosing to park at the narrowest part of the river. This lionness walked along the river, stopping to evaluate many crossing points and hissing at the water, until she chose to cross right in front of us. After exploding across the river, she calmly strolled past us. The pride was too sleepy to go at first but they eventually got up to cross the river. At first the kids didn't go so the mothers crossed, crossed back, crossed again then bluffed and left, came back.

We had seen what we thought might be an alligator floating down the river. I'm all for the circle of life and what not but I didn't want to see these cute lion cubs hurt!
One mother crossed back over to the side with the cubs. As she got to the bank she saw the threat over her shoulder and leaped back in to the river turning in mid air. Two other mothers saw her attacking, but I don't think they saw what but they attacked as well....and absolutely destroyed a log.

The mothers nudged the baby lions in, crossed together, and growled at the teenagers from the far bank who finally crossed. I was stunned and so thankful to get to see one lion cross a river, let alone 13, multiple times!
Location: Okavango Delta, Botswana.

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.
