Povodni kos / White throated dipper

Povodnega kosa (Cinclus Cinclus) sem videla avgusta v Blejskem vintgarju. Pri iskanju hrane je vztrajno namakal glavo v vodo, plaval in se potapljal. Povodni kos je edina ptica pevka, ki se potaplja. Plava in potaplja se s perutmi, s krempeljci pa se oprime kamnov, da ga tok ne odnese. Ker ga ne vidimo ravno vsak dan, sem seveda zelo vesela, da sem ga opazila. 

The dippers (Cinclus Cinclus) dip their head into water looking for food. They are the only birds of their type who can dive underwater.

Mati narava / Mother nature

After a rainy september we finally have a nice, sunny autumn weather, which calls for long walks. Isn`t Nature beautiful?

Today I´m thankful for:
- my eyes to see the beauty of nature - colorful autumn leaves, sunsets, squirrels collecting food for winter, a deer hiding behind trees ...






- my ears to hear the bubbling stream, the noise of autumn leaves, the bird`s singing and the waves of the sea...





- my skin to feal soft animal fur, rain drops on my face, rough and smooth tree burks and soft mosses...





- my nose to smell the forest after a rainy day, the pleasant smell of cyclamen, the freshly mowed grass...




- my tongue to taste sweet forest berries, baked chestnut ...

- my arms and legs to walk the beautiful trails, run across the fields and climb the trees...





- my heart and soul so that all these little things can deeply touch me...

- and most importantly, my family, because with my family all this moments are even more beautiful.


Po deževnem septembru imamo končno lepo, sončno jesensko vreme, ki kar kliče po dolgih sprehodih. Ali ni narava čudovita?

Danes sem hvaležna za:
- oči, da vidim lepote narave - pisano jesensko listje, sončne zahode, veverice, ki si nabirajo ozimnico, srno, ki se plašno skriva za drevesom in me opazuje...

- za ušesa, da slišim žuborenje potočka, šumenje jesenskega listja, ptičje petje in valovanje morja...

- za kožo, da čutim mehko dlako živali, dežne kapljice na obrazu, raskavo skorjo dreves in puhaste blazinice mahu...

- za nos, da duham gozd po dežju, prijeten vonj ciklam, pa sveže pokošeno travo...

- za jezik, da okusim sladke gozdne jagode, pečen kostanj in mošt...

- za noge in roke, da lahko hodim po čudovitih poteh in tekam čez polja ter plezam na drevesa

- za srce in dušo, da se me vse te majhne stvari tako globoko dotaknejo

- in najpomembneje, za družino, ker so z njo vsi ti trenutki še lepši.

EDM #15

I'm still doing the EDM challenge and watercolor exercises but I'm not happy with any of the sketches. Can't wait to start the Art classes on Saturday.

Here is the EDM #15 - draw a tree. I did the watercolor exercise with Drawing and Painting - The virtual instructor on You tube.

Blejski vintgar / The Vintgar Gorge

Neko julijsko soboto smo opravke na Gorenjskem izkoristili za izlet v Blejski vintgar.  Ne gneča na avtocesti, ne tista v soteski nam nista pokvarili dobre volje.

Soteska leži 4 km od centra Bleda, pot skozi njo pa je dolga približno 1,6 km in primerna za vsakogar. Skozi sotesko se sprehodiš po lesenih mostovih, pritrjenih na stene hribov Hom in Boršt. Pod njimi teče reka Radovna, ki navdušuje s svojimi brzicami, na koncu pa nas preseneti še s slapom. O Blejskem vintgarju je napisanega že toliko, da tukaj ne bom zgubljala besed.

Thankful thursday

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." - Melodie Beattie




Today I'm thankful for a warm autumn day, beautiful memories and great opportunities, a peaceful life, loving family, their hugs and kisses...

Dolina reke Malte / Maltatal valley

A family trip to Maltatal valley in Austria on August 15th. The valley is known for its many waterfalls, the biggest one is Fallbach.  A scenic route with 6 tunnels leads up tho the Kölnbrein dam at 1933 m (6,342 ft).

Sončen praznični torek, 15. avgusta, smo izkoristili za družinski izlet v dolino reke Malte na Avstrijskem Koroškem. Do akumulacijskega jezera  Kölnbrein smo se peljali po panoramski cesti skozi 6 predorov, vrezanih v skalo. Medtem ko smo čakali pri semaforjih (promet skozi predore je enosmeren), smo si ogledovali številne slapove, ki z vrhov strmo padajo v dolino.

Jezero leži na višini 1933 m, jez pa je visok kar 200 m (debelina 8 m). Razgled s steklene ploščadi (Airwalk) je naravnost veličasten.

Daljši pohodi za današnji izlet niso bili predvideni, smo pa se vseeno sprehodili ob jezeru.

Ko smo se vračali, smo si ogledali še najvišji slap na Koroškem - Fellbach. Pogled nanj je res dihjemajoč.

Izlet smo zaključili s kosilom ob jezeru Millstätter in sprehodom po mestu Spittal an der Drau.

EDM #2,3,4

It's really hard to find the time and even harder to sketch this everyday items. I cant't wait to start the art classes in 2 weeks.

Res je težko najti čas za vsakodnevno risanje, še težje pa je risanje teh vsakdanjih predmetov, če o risanju nimaš pojma. Komaj čakam, da se čez 14 dni začne slikarski tečaj. Ne glede na to kako slabe so ta trenutek te risbe, nekega dne bodo služile kot merilo za napredek.
