We've spent beautiful weeks on Sri Lanka in January and February. On the way we've seen many different places - ancient cities, mountains, natural parks or beaches. Here comes selection of photos which I like most.
Spring is here
Autumn in Dolomites
It has become a tradition, that I'm going into Dolomites each October with friends using Pentax. This year the weather looked more like a winter than autumn, but still it was nice opportunity to take some mountain pictures.
We've started near Passo Rolle:
However our first night and morning was at Passo Valles:
Inevitably we had to visit some places where we've been in past as well, so we went again to Passo Falzarego:
Last morning was at Passo Gardena, though it should be last time we did this (we've said this last year as well):
Hiking in Slovenia
Continuing in photo blog posts, here is our last vacation - in the beginning of September we've traveled around Slovenia, mostly for hiking, but we've enjoyed other things as well.
Our first short hike was around lake Bled, which is nice lake placed in between mountains:
Afternoon we had some time left, so we've walked around Peričnik waterfall, which was close to Mojstrana where we were accommodated (if you will be looking for accommodation there, check River Cottage):
Then it came time for some serious hiking and we went up to the mountains, in the end we did not make it to Triglav because of weather, but we've gone on Cmir:
After that we had to relax a bit and visited Ljubljana and ended up near Škocjan Caves which we've visited on next day:
After relaxing evening in Saksida winery, it was time to go back to mountains. We've started visiting Tolmin gorges, which is nice natural area worth short detour:
Last days we've spent near Bovec and hiked around a bit, one of the things we've enjoyed most is trip to Krnsko lake:
This was definitely not our last trip to Slovenia as there are still some places we want to visit :-).
Trip to Switzerland
After I was at DebConf 13, we took opportunity and made short trip through Switzerland.
Even the DebConf itself brought some nice opportunities to take pictures, especially in the morning:
Then there was a day trip to Creux du Van, which is a wonderful location:
After DebConf, we've traveled to visit our friend and made some trips. The one I really enjoyed was around Luzerne and to mount Pilatus:
An while being in north of Switzerland, we simply had to see Rheinfall:
Spring in Bohemian-Moravian Highlands
After quite some delay, I got to selecting some photos for my gallery. In spring, we've spend few days in Bohemian-Moravian Highlands with Pentax Friends.
On the program there was of course taking some pictures and drinking beer or wine :-).
You can find some small but nice waterfalls:
In villages, there live wild animals:
As the weather was not really nice, we had nice opportunity to shoot some pictures in fog:
And last but not least, we've spent almost whole day taking pictures in Pilgrimage Church of Saint John of Nepomuk:
The trip was really nice, though we could use better weather as most of the morning there were really no nice conditions for taking pictures.
Nuremberg month ago
To continue in photography blog posts, let's document part of our last week trip around Slovakia. We've visited many nice places, starting at Muraňská planina, going trhough Slovenský ráj and ending in Nizke Tatry.
All pictures are taken in Slovenský ráj (Slovakian paradise), where I've really enjoyed taking photos of waterfalls and wonderful streams:
Rome in May
I've enjoyed past extended weekend in Sächsische Schweiz. I really like this area and we've again seen there wonderful nature and climbed thousands of steps :-).
The weather was not that nice for taking photos, but still I can show few of them:
