First batch of scones

There is frost outside, temperature is dropping well bellow zero. While computer is rendering I did my first batch of scones. They are delicious eaten with homemade red currant jam that we made in September.
Now bread is in the oven and I need to drag myself back to work.

Memory from September fishing day on Ljubljanica

here are two stiched photographs developed from lx3 raw file.
They were shot here on a bench next to Ljubljana rowing club, facing south-west. It was a tough day fishing, full moon and fish were not in the mood but evening turned out good for photography after a friend dropped by with few cans of Guinness :)

Autumn evenings

Nothing more relaxing in dark autumn evenings than smoking a pipe and drinking beer , maybe with a good movie or a friend.

River Reka

Last week I went for the first time to the river Reka in south west Slovenia. Famous for its beauty  further down it runs  into the amazing Škocjan caves system. There was lots of small chub but unfortunately we didnt see any trout. Will certainly go back to those parts to try my luck next time.

Spring is here

Spring finally arrived and I was out quite a lot fishing this week. These  images  were taken by the lovely at my favorite fishing spot just 15min walk from our flat. The little lake is full of carp, roach, bream,pike, zander and catfish. With nice weather going on I will be spending my time here until the rivers get clear and low after melting snow in the Alps.
