Misty For You... Donner Lake, CA
You're like a memory.
A feel-good, life-was-never-better moment... 
That lasted a day, a week, a lifetime. 
Only here. And now. 
You're like an imaginary past, blended to perfection with dreamed-about future.
Making Now with you the most miraculous place to be.
So, I took my Big Stopper filter with me when I went out to play at ungodly-o'clock the other morning. It was one of those alternately cloudy, then foggy, then misty, ever-changing light events. And soooo cold!! -1 degree F is downright frigid around here. Hey, we're not Canada! But it sure made for some interesting photo opps, like the way Mr. Big Stopper here made the mist rising from the lake look like a frosty breath of minty freshness. Fun!

This Image of swans was taken on a small lake quite close to home while on a sunrise photowalk with a few friends.  The sun had just broke the horizon and the mist was rising.  Within a half an hour the rain came, but  that half hour or so was one of the most productive times shooting all year, producing several stunning fall images.

Sometimes, everything comes together only  for a brief moment.  I now understand what was meant by the saying "Chance favors the prepared mind"

Let's start the New Year off with a perfect smile.
With wide eyes and joy.
With exuberance and wonder at all the joyous adventures that await.
Let's start out the New Year holding hands and giggling,
exploring, creating and learning together.
Let's try new things and make "magnificent accidents"
(mistakes are sooo 2012)
and celebrate each other's successes.
Let's share new skills, new friends, new things to marvel at...
Let's start...together.

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.
