Morning mists over Ljubljansko Barje

If you want to get some nice sunrise photos, you can't go wrong with shooting from the Sv. Ana Hill above the Ljubljansko Barje marshes. The hill is just high enough to offer great views over the vast plains below and sports a photogenic little chapel. Most late spring and summer mornings are foggy in the lowlands, which means fairytale-like scenes of the river and solitary trees shrouded in mist.

Yes, I had to get up early and leave home at 4.15 a.m. to get to my destination before dawn. Was it worth it? I would say so! :)

Kitty, kitty, kitty!

The little kitty is growing fast, too fast actually. She is so playful and devilish that it's practically impossible to catch her - she can't stay still for a second! I would have to drug her with tranquilizers first before taking any posed shots. :)))
Instead, I'm posting a few *unposed* shots - just for fun. And she's just too cute!

There are more photos, of course. :)

Tulips in Mozirski gaj

Well, not just tulips :), but they were the most beautiful.
Mozirski gaj is a flower park in the small town of Mozirje and is a great place to just walk around and enjoy the views or diverse flower beds. There's nothing much to add here really, except that I enjoyed playing with the fisheye and worm's eye view.

More photos can be found in my Photo Journal.

A tiny kitten

My brother rescued a tiny kitten after it had been abandoned by its mother. Instead of taking it to an animal shelter, he took the cute little cat home. He only got it yesterday and I just had to go to his house and snap a few photos. They are not very good because it was late and getting dark, but I'm sure there will be more piccies of this cutie here soon. :)

Colorful Punat coast

In the beginning of May I went on a short vacation to Island Krk where I stayed in the small town of Punat. The weather played a few tricks on me and the sun was only shining on my first day there, so I didn't get another opportunity to shoot the wonderful coastline in a better light. The following photos were taken too late in the morning when the light was already too harsh, but you get the picture - the color of the sea was spectacular nevertheless. I'm not upset though as I'm pretty sure I'll get another chance this summer to capture this fantastic stretch of the Croatian coast. :)

A few more photos can be found here.

Sunrise in the fields

I'm not a morning person. Not at all. But the photographer in me knows that for great landscape photos you need great light, and that only comes early in the morning and late in the afternoon. So once in a while I kick myself out of bed well before dawn and go shoot some pictures.

The sunrise in early April was at about 6.30 a.m. and I made sure I didn't miss it. I was on the chosen location early enough to capture some mists that hung low above the ground before the sun rays dissipated them.

I visited a few different spots and actually saw the sun come up twice. I won't write any comments to the following photos - I think they say everything that needs to be said:
