Warm light


I took this during the same airplane flight as my last post. The funny part is that I needed a half hour to find the exact location of this church - specifically, the church of St. Nikolaj. The airplane flew quite a bit farther than I remembered before doing our loop around Triglav.

Triglav vol. 2


We recently went on a scenic airplane ride around Slovenia's Mount Triglav, which I previously posted some years ago.

Westward bridge


Took this photo recently in Novo Mesto, just a quick shot with my phone. The footbridge spans across the river Krka from the city itself to a small, forested hill on the opposite bank of the river. The old part of town is easily one of the nicest in Slovenia.

Lonely row boat


Around five years ago, taken a few hours before this photo of a little frog and these two photos of my sister. Lake Bohinj in the early hours of the morning, a lonely boat in a sea of fog.

Turtle noir


A red-eared slider turtle, which is an invasive species originally from the Mississippi river and the Gulf of Mexico but has spread all over the world. This one is very inquisitive and loves eating snails.

Beer


A couple of weeks ago, Ljubljana had its annual 'Museum Night' where most museums charge no admission, one of the museums we visited was the brewing museum which is part of Ljubljana's Union brewery. While I prefer craft beer (and Slovenia has a few very good craft breweries), the museum was pretty interesting, and we got a free beer at the end of the tour. As far as lagers go, Union isn't half bad ;-)


The first photo is outside in the courtyard of the brewery, the second is of a bar from a typical inn from a hundred or so years ago, the last is an assortment of the beer Union now produces (the smaller bottles are special limited beers which will only be sold for a few months). This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Union brewery.
