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.

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.

Last rays on the cliff

This was taken a month or so ago at the climbing spot at the village of Sisljan, near Trieste, Italy. The climbing spot (or crag) isn't very large but it is right next to the sea, perfect for climbing in the late autumn, winter or early spring.
