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.

Owl Mountains

Here are some pics from my short hiking trip to the Great Owl (polish "Wielka Sowa"). When you start from Przełęcz Walimska it's really easy to get to the top (which is 1014 metres in altitude). You can see the path in pink colour.

As you can see below, the weather was sunny and warm (well.. for the autumn), but also windy and partially foggy which gave the nice touch to some of the photos. Enjoy! :)
