I climbed Stari grad above Kamnik yesterday after a long abstinence from any hiking. It felt so good! Due to the cold and windy weather my fingers almost froze off while I was taking photos at the top, but the views made up for it.
Is this winter?? Where is the snow? Come on, it's the middle of January. I want snow!
This is the view from the top towards the Kamnik Alps:
You can sort of see my house from here. :)
My favorite "training" hill, Kamniški vrh, was glowing red in the late afternoon light:
Mt. Brana and Mt. Planjava, as well as the clouds, turned orange-pink as the sunset was approaching.
Then the sun was almost gone:
Mt. Triglav and the Julian Alps in the distance:
Stari grad castle ruins and the after sunset sky:
Even after running all the way down the steep trail back to Kamnik my fingers didn't thaw. I really need to bring my gloves next time. :)
Oh, and all these photos were taken with my new compact camera, Canon Powershot S100, fitted with a polarizing filter. Around 200 grams altogether, heh. It was strange to go on a hike with so little weight. :)
