I like to photograph flowers – and orchids are obviously quite attractive. Finally, with some hints from Michal Vytlačil, I made a first trip aimed to get some orchid photos. The target was the Baba natural reserve near Brno, Czech Republic. Luckily, it was not that hard to find some decent flowers and the timing was almost perfect. The weather was also quite ok with no wind so shooting from tripod was possible.
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 opportunities for photography.
The autumn is my favourite time of the year. I like colorful forests with the typical smell of decaying foliage, misty mornings and first freeze. I’ve selected few of my autumn pictures for you, enjoy!
Forest paths deep in Moravian Karst are very colorful – but only for a few days in a year.
Lonely beech tree in the Highlands spruce forests shows some interesting contrasts in the late sun.
Little zooming and colorful maple leafs can produce some nice results.
Colorful small beech tree is like a bright lantern in the dark forest.
Bright yellow maple leafs against the dark water can make a nice background photo.
It really took me a while before I managed to get a decent autumnal forest photo like this.
