Adrspach-Teplice Rocks

This autumn (yes, it's still 2015) I was for the second time in so called Rock City (polish Skalne Miasto) in Czech Republic. It was a lovely hike on a warm, mostly sunny day, ended with a fried cheese and 2 hour ride back home. I was there for the first time in 2012, but photos still wait for some form of inspiration.

Clear night sky

Couple of nights ago there was a slight chance if seeing aurora in Poland, so I went to the nearest not-so-black-but-close-enough place in the 1 hour driving distance from Wrocław. This was my first visit at this specific place and for sure it will not be the last. Of course no aurora was there but the clear sky and low light pollution made the trip worth it.

Perseids 2015

I have been watching Perseids this year, unfortunately I didn't catch much on the camera. There was a bit of light pollution from nearby city and also there were still visible lightings from earlier storm. So here are only 3 photos.

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! :)

Table Mountains

This weekend, on Saturday, I took a quick trip to the Table Mountains, to Szczeliniec Wielki. Table Mountains is the region I like very much. Peaks are not very high, so you don't have to be in a very good shape to climb them. Forest region is magical with all the rocks and paths between them. This was my third time there. I actually hoped for a little more cloudy weather, but the day turned out to be quite sunny and warm, so no foggy photos that day. ;)

To see this view, you need to climb 665 stairs, but it's definitely worth it. Beautiful both summer and winter (though climbing there in winter can be quite dangerous). The path starts in village Karłów, where you can park your car, and is about 5km long.

Firstly you just climb stairs in the forest (with some rocks for company) to reach height, then you walk more between rocks, sometimes the path gets very narrow, so I wouldn't advise it for someone with claustrophobia. Good boots are a "nice to have" thing because even during summer, the moisture from the rocks is quite strong so path is always wet somewhere.
