"Bison In Fresh Snow"
It's snowing to beat the band here in Colorado and I can't think of any better way to spend it than with these guys. I love springtime here, it always gives you some extra added touches in photographs. Captured at Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR in Denver, Colorado.

Ascending Allalinhorn (4.020m), Valais, Swiss

Uspon na Allalinhorn

My friend Darko on the glacier is following the path through crevasses.
There were really big one...

It was very sunny day so we could be in short sleeves on the glacier, usual summer dress code :)) but with ice axes and crampons :)
Summer fun or ljetna uživancija

Of course I went to the sea coast after few days to relax my knees after 5 days climbing over 4.000m. :)

Happy May Day and International Workers' Day

Elephants are living treasures. Nature's gardeners. Nature's great teachers. Tragically some people don't give a damn. They prefer the dead treasure to the living one. The ivory. We must challenge this so-called 'trade' with all our might and shame on those who would condone it. ~ Virginia McKenna OBE Founder & Trustee: Born Free Foundation

It has been an unusual cold and long winter in Germany but for the last couple of weeks the weather has finally improved. It is still a mixed bag though and I didn't have the chance to shoot the motifs I have in mind yet. So I pulled a photo from my archives that I captured more than two years ago. I photographed it during a very warm and nice spring day with my photographer buddy +Stefan Köber.

Unfortunately during that trip I must have been so amazed by the nice weather that I somehow forgot to check my ISO settings and did most photographs with ISO 1600. However, with the latest Lightroom version I found that noise reduction works much better. Also, it gives the photo a more "painting" like look. Still, I'm looking forward to capture some of these golden fields in the coming weeks with better technical qualities.

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.
