The hot summer is behind us, but still with enough moisture and rainfall, that nature has shown itself to us in its diversity.
Here we have wonderful places and landscapes, there are many places for excursions and walks. Although it can also be interesting motives for photographing, they are often ignored and unknown to many people.
Come and see for yourself, at any time of the year they are interesting.
Plač hill is the 510m high hill in North-Eastern Slovenia in the municipality of Kungota, bordering with Austria. On it stands a 28-meters lookout Plač tower, built in year 2000. It is a wonderful view across the municipality and far against Kozjak, Pohorje, Lenart and far into the interior of neighboring Austria.
Across the Plač hill are Border panoramic route, Journey through the svečina hills and The way of wine-growing and fossils.
From Plač tower are especially beautiful mornings and sunrises, as evidenced by my photos.
Pohorje is the mountains, that rises above Maribor and stretches to the west. Is a set of beautiful nature, with natural attractions, such as forest, peatlands with lakes and waterfalls, and a number of hiking and cycling trails lead us to there, They also offer us a lot of opportunities for recreation and relaxation. In the winter, Mariborsko Pohorje becomes ski centre with probably all known competition for Golden Fox.
But certainly here in every season we can find something for yourself, as well as interesting motives and views, that last year presented on my next pictures.
(or restraint Medvedce)
It was built in the 70. years, to keeping the high waters of the river Polskava. The immersion is a shallow body of water, which is on the west and the south side of the overgrown with lush swamp or riverside vegetation. Soon, they began to nest here a number of waterfowl, many of which are endangered species. Actually never carried out the role of the restraint, water from the lake never used for irrigation, but it's a rearing pond. Sestrže lie next to the lake, Medvedce are a neighboring village. Round trip is available for visitors after the embankment, a few service stations and observatories.
It is often an interesting point, whence also alone in his lens several times to catch interesting photographic imagery. Especially in the evening light, we can discover incredible designs.
Near the local center of Pernica is situated Pernica lake, that is an important biotope for water birds and one of the stops some of the rare migratory birds. The lake is interesting also because of aquaculture or. fishing point of view.
Around the lake is located more points, from where you can catch the interesting motives for photography, often you can find another new. The time before sunset we can surprise you with amazing colors, which are also observed on several occasions on my photos.
The Drava field comprises a significant part of Styria on the right part of the Drava. On the north and east it borders on Slovenske gorice, on the west it is surrounded by Pohorje, and in the south by Haloze and Dravinjske gorice. On the northern edge lies Maribor, and on the east the lowland continues into Ptuj field.
Definitely an interesting landscape, which is repeatedly caught on my photos. It covers beautiful countryside, various small places and lakes (or. ponds), which are always an interesting motive. In short, you can always find something, worth catching on camera.
Slovenske gorice situated in NE Slovenia and are the biggest Slovenian hills. Geographically they are divided into the Western Slovenske gorice and Ljutomersko-Ormoške Slovenske gorice (or. Prlekija). The peaks range from 300-400 m. Slovenske gorice border on the Mura river to the east, on Apače field to the NW, on the Drava river to the west and on Croatia border to the south.
You can see them in many photos, I took due to the diversity of motives I can find in these hills. They are characterized by low ridges and hills, that are interrupted by numerous river valleys , they extend from the NW the SE. These elongated and almost rectilinear river valleys form the characteristic landscape.
All this and more, with the right light, at the right time are excellent motives, which can create amazing photography.
