10 amazing TOP photos published by Google+ photography enthusiasts on August 28.

Killer Sheep

There are two types of sheep in Iceland: Mountain Sheep and Killer Sheep.

Mountain Sheep spend their whole time during summer far up in the mountains. It's unbelievable which places they can reach.

Killer Sheep on the other hand prefer to browse the endless green spaces of Iceland. But every now and then a road crosses their way. And that seems to be some kind of magnet for the Killer Sheep. As if they need an adrenaline rush they lie next to the road or even on the road and also feed their offspring there. I hope you can imagine how the rest of the story goes ;-)

[when even the rain]

there are days
when the darkness
that governs the soul
slips into nothingness
when for a few precious
brief and immoderate seconds
the world refuses not to sing to us
and we know beyond any questioning it
that something enchanted has entered our souls

i enjoyed my first sunset on my all-alone-trip through the u.s. west in gardnerville, nv after i took the carson pass (hwy 88) over the sierra which took me half of the day. western nevada is covered by beautiful green ranchland with the sierra in the background which higher peaks still had some white snowhats on. 

the color scheme reminds me of you +Serg Bezrukoff. how's life going, dear? miss hearing from you.

Just because I felt like it. :)

Also, Shakespeare because he's awesome.

O, how much more doth beauty beauteous seem 
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem 
For that sweet odour which doth in it live. 
The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye 
As the perfumed tincture of the roses, 
Hang on such thorns and play as wantonly 
When summer's breath their masked buds discloses:
But, for their virtue only is their show, 
They live unwoo'd and unrespected fade, 
Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so; 
Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made:
   And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth,
   When that shall fade, my verse distills your truth.

You know he's not at all talking about the beauty of a rose. >8)

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.
