Autumn on Rašica

Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground… Every single year when the leaves fall down from the trees I can’t get the “Fallen leaves” song by Billy Talent out of my head. Well this was few days ago, when the weather was still quite nice here in Slovenia and most of the trees still had the leaves on. It was really nice and warm autumn day, so we decided to have a little hike.
We went on top of the Rašica, hill a bit north from Ljubljana. There is a tall iron tower on top, so I went up and took some photos from up there. Sadly it was quite foggy below, so the view wasn’t as nice as it could be. I guess I’ll have to return to the Rašica tower some other day when the visibility will be better.

Sunset at Novigrad, Croatia

Finally I took some time for the seaside this season, though only for the weekend. I’ll divide these photos in three different blog posts, because they are all different themes and different days. On Friday evening we arrived to Novigrad, so we went for a walk along the coast right before the sunset. The sky was full of dark clouds and the sun rays were trying to peek from behind them, so it was very dramatic. I took some photos and yes, they are a bit edited, though to be honest, the sky really was like that – dark, cloudy, dramatic, interesting colours… Amazing.
And right when I said how cool it would be if that fishing boat in the distance would come closer, I noticed that it really was going our way and the seagulls were following it.
It was one amazing evening and here are my photos.

Walk through Radensko polje

Few months back I posted some photos from Radensko polje, but I visited it again. When I’m somewhere and I have my camera with me it’s hard to resist, I just have to take photos. I guess sometimes that isn’t so good, since you forget to enjoy the nature as a person, not as a photographer. But to be honest, I don’t mind. =) The more I take photos, the more I see everything the same way as I would be watching through the lens. =)
So anyway, some photos of nature again…

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

Summer Slovenian fields

I spent a Sunday afternoon outdoors and green fields and hills of Slovenia always make my day. It’s so nice, so green, full of fresh air, everything smells like summer and this weekend wasn’t hot, so it was really just perfect! I took some photos of wheat fields and grassland at the place named Polževo in Dolenjska region. It’s not that far from the city, but it feels like you’re almost in the middle of nowhere. But I guess that’s almost everywhere in Slovenia – few minutes drive by car and you’re in the nature and you forget about civilization. I admit, I like that, even though I can’t imagine living far in the countryside. I need a city close-by. =)
