It's all about travels and photography.

End of Winter for me…

Last few months have been very busy for me and this is the main reason I haven’t been posting as often as I used to. Most of the time I was (and still am) working on Photography Tours project and the result of hard work was the Creator award we received in December.

And why the End of Winter for me? Because on Tuesday I am leaving to Egypt for 11 days. I will be guiding a group of Slovenian tourists on a classic Egyptian Nile cruise with a short trip to Sinai peninsula.

When I am back there will be just a short time to prepare everything for a business trip to London where I will be promoting photography tours.

After London another overseas trip – this time to Indonesia, more exactly North Sulawesi. My girlfriend is doing voluntary work there and I am going to visit her. I plan to visit a few national parks there so expect new photos here on the blog!

On the way back to Europe I will stop at Singapore for a few days, again to promote photography tours.

When I am back from these trips there will be a Spring already and a new tourist season – no rest for me…

Enough of my plans – here are some photos I made during this Winter at various places around Slovenia.

Lake Cerknica at high water level. A total contrast to the photo at the top which was taken approx one month earlier.

Winter came late this year. First snowfall of the season I experienced in Ljubljana. Here are some more photos of that beautiful day.

Lake Bled. Stunningly beautiful in all seasons.

But the first snow was soon all gone. This shot was made on Christmas day! It was almost 15C which is unusual for this time of the year. So much of “White Christmas”. Well I love the rainbow anyway:)

January finally brought real winter temperatures. These icicles were photographed at Velika Karlovica sinkhole near Lake Cerknica.

I was planning to do star trails at Velika Planina Plateau for many years. This Winter I finally did it and it was an unforgettable experience! Some more cool shots of that night. Trust me – worth to check it out!

Planina cave. A great place to learn cave photography!

A sunset somewhere in SE Slovenia.

Pericnik Waterfall always leaves a strong impression! More photos of it from the last Winter.

My newest toy is a SB-900 Speedlight. What a great piece of equipment! Of course I needed to give it a try immediately. My girlfriend was patient and understanding model – and beautiful of course!

And this is probably the last shot I made before I hit the road. A Shrovetide festival in Ljubljana. I hope for you guys that the Kurenti succeeded to scare away the Winter!

Do you like the photos? Which one is your favourite?

On all my trips next two months I will have my laptop with me so I can post some photos while travelling. Stay tuned!

    Lake Bled and star trails are great. And yes, SB900 is a great peace of equipment. Planning to buy one as soon as I come back. Enjoy your trips and I’ll see you in 6 to 8 month. Have fun.
