Kisovec grasslands again

I’ve already posted some photos from this place last year, so this year I returned to take some photos again. Funny, but I had similar weather this time too. Again there were cows, but this time I didn’t approach them. Though there was a surprise visit… In the distance I noticed something small and black walking towards me. Right away I knew that couldn’t be a dog, it was too different. When it walked closer to me I realized it was a small black pig. I think it was Vietnamese pig that actually lives at the nearby cottage. But that really is something unexpected when you’re up in the mountains, more or less in the middle of nowhere. That pig really made me laugh. =)
Other than that, I must say I enjoyed the fresh air, nature and sun. My mom was picking some plants she’ll use for a tea, so I helped her with that, though I don’t have much knowledge about which plant is which and why are they useful. She just shows me what to pick. But hey, it gets the job done. =D

Velika Planina in Summer

With a week delay, here are some photos from my trip to Velika Planina. These are showing nature, typical houses and herdsman village that is full of cows from spring to autumn. It’s really interesting because it’s so different. I imagine it must be really unusual to people that are used living in cities. I can imagine some crazy Japanese tourists that take photos of everything, but this time I didn’t see any so maybe their season is just starting or maybe they don’t know about this not so hidden gem? Who knows. =)
Anyway, this location used to be full of people during any season, then it was empty most of the time, but slowly this is changing and I really hope this place will thrive again. I guess Slovenia is getting more tourists in general so I guess it’s possible. We’ll see. =)

Cows on Kisovec

Few days back I went to Slovenian mountains, even though I didn’t walk around much, because the main plan was to pick some herbs and plants for the tea. You know, good healthy stuff that grows in nature… =)
Well, beside picking up those plants I also took some time to shoot some photos. It was really nice area and there were cows, so I kinda felt like in some movie about countryside or something. I don’t think I took any photos of cows since I have SLR camera, so I was like: “Challenge accepted!”, but when I approached to them one of them started to make weird sounds and I wasn’t sure what it’s going to do. So slowly I moved a bit away, because I really didn’t want to risk being chased by some bull or cow. That would totally freak me out.
Anyway, cows stood there, moved a bit left, a bit right, but more or less they kept posing for my photos. Some of them were really acting so funny, like they knew I’m taking photos. Maybe they did? Well, I enjoyed taking this photos and I’ll try to go up to Slovenian mountains a bit more this summer, maybe not Kisovec again, even though it’s nice there too, but next time I’ll try to go to Velika Planina and I’ll go with a plan to walk around more, not just to pick herbs.
So, this are some photos from the day when cows posed for my camera. =)
