The temperatures dropped a lot the last days in Slovakia, with today being a nice -10 degrees Celsius (-18 real feel). I tried to go out to take some photos, but it really is not that fun, when one has a cold allergy. But today I stopped for an hour in Trnava, to take few photos, and while I gave up after about a hour in the cold, I still got some nice shots. And here is one of them :)

This is a two exposure vertorama, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

With the beginning of new year, it got quite cold in Bratislava and the fog rolled in. I went out to take few photos (not as many as I would like, due to camera problems :/), but I got some. Here is one, with the new Old bridge coming from the fog, with a nicely frost covered tree. There was not much color in this photo, but I still toned it down a bit to make the green more dominant.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

How about one more shot from the New years fireworks. This was the last photo I took, of the final, quite huge, fireworks explosion. It really was big :)

A little side note, I too the new Peak Design Everyday Sling as the bag that evening, and it worked perfectly. I actually managed to fit a Canon 5D Mark II, a 20-70mm f2.8, 16-35mm f2.8 and a 50mm lens into it. It’s quite bigger than one would think it is from looking at it :)

Happy new year everyone :) Hope you have all the best in 2017.

And to start off the blog, as usually, here is a midnight photo from the fireworks in Bratislava. This year I decided to go to the new Old bridge, and try a shot from there. It looked very promising, but right as the midnight approached, so did the fog. But I still got few useable photos, and here is one of those.

As every year, lets end this one with a photo I took right after midnight on the 1st January of this year. These was a projection of the Slovak flag on the Bratislava castle, and I presume there will be something similar this year. I’m just getting my gear ready and in few hours, it’s off to the city to take few new fireworks shots :)

Hope you all have a great Silvester 2016.
