Owl Mountains in winter

Welcome in 2018! :)

I was starting to fell itchy just sitting around on my butt and I needed to go somewhere and change my surroundings. I figured hiking would be nice, thought about a place that will not be too much exhausting, as I didn't hike for a few months, also not too far away, and there I was - Owl Mountains. The weather was good, around 0*C, almost no wind, beautiful snowy landscapes. The one thing that was missing was a little bit of sun. A lot of people had the same idea for that day, but that didn't spoil anything.

Views were amazing but editing those photos was painfull..

Spring in Białowieża - day 3

I'll start from the end, just like on Facebook. :) Check day1 and day2 as well.

Last day of shooting was short, we only had in plan to capture Eurasian Pygmy Owl, the smallest Owl in Europe. We started early in the morning with snow and cold. I hoped for some nice weather (it was end of April), but naah. Also the Owl wasn't very cooperative as it was sitting on high branches and there was no possibility to get close enough for some nice shots. So here are only few that look good enough to put them on the Internet. :)

After I packed and got ready to leave the weather changed and the day became sunny and warm. Puszcza Bialowieska this time of a year was especially beautiful with all the ground forest covered with a carpet made of little white flowers. Absolutely stunning view which I tried to capture on the camera but it really does not give the beauty of it.

Hike to Sniezka mountain

I took advantage of the gorgeous weather this weekend and went for a hike. It was my first real hike this year and I enjoyed it very much. Also my company was a delight making the trip even more pleasurable. Even though here in the city everybody had long forgotten about snow and winter, in the mountains the conditions are still quite winterish. A few times I ended up over my knees in the snow. At home I saw how much red my face got from the sun. :)

Szczeliniec Wielki

So, last weekend I took advantage of not-so-bad weather and went to the mountains. It was around 0*C, foggy, humid and hiking up was a bit tricky due to slippery path. On the top of Szczeliniec Wielki the visibility was really low, just up to 15-20 meters but snow with wind made for some interesting sculptures. :)
