This time, nothing winter like, morning hike led me from from Ruse through Areh and towards the Mariborsko Pohorje. Just before Areh I turned to the road in the direction towards Šmartno on Pohorje and began to descend into the valley to Slovenian Bistrica.


Bojtina: at the forefront is Church of St. Ursula, On the right is Boc hill












Before Šmartno I was greeted by an idyllic landscape, which I'll visit more often.


Chapel by the road in Šmartno offers many opportunities for a good photo.






The sun began to rise, and showed right between two houses.











With a variety of layouts I “move” him in the photos……

…or hide him. :)












But morning was not over yet. When I returend home I encountered a rather blurry Ruše so, I stopped by the river Drava. The river was low, so I was able to photograph in the river bed and used the bottom of the river for compositional element.
