Jizera Mountains

Ahh so much photos, so little time. '-.-

Here are few shots from my last mountain hike. Getting fit for Bulgaria trip next week. :) 21 km in 5 and half hour, not so bad. Plan was for 24 km, but I was feelin' kinda tired, so I shortened it up a bit. The weather was rather cold and windy but I deliberately chose that over sunny Sunday to have more space on the track.

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. :)

Autumn shots from Milicz Ponds

Around a year ago I bought a manual lens, Takumar 50mm/1.4 and I enjoy the image it's producing very much. Especially on 1.4 aperture. Late autumn I took it to the nature to play with it. Here are some shots from the day, macro ones are from Takumar.

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.
