Road-trip to Croatia

The beginning of the summer and couple free days resulted to a short road trip to Croatia and Slovenia. The weather was nice, despite being a little too hot for the hiking trip we made along the coast of southern Istrija peninsula. The rocky coast, sunsets and relics of ancient Rome architecture provided plenty of opprotunities for photography.

Balloons and autumn mist

I love the misty autumn with its foggy landscapes and bright colors. But Im usually too lazy to get up early enough. However, ballooning is all about the early morning and late afternoon flights. The advantage is a lot of traveling in the landscape and plenty of time to do some nice pictures. I doubt I will do better misty landscapes this autumn then I already did during my balloon chasing business. All the pictures are form Vysocina region in the Czech Republic.
