December

Now that December has arrived, here is a look at the last month of the past year for the final part of my 2016 Calendar. Actually no, the very last act will come later this month as a finale of this blog when I shall choose only one photo from each month in order to…

The Spying Reserve

Welcome again to the nature reserve on the Slovenian coast where you can spy on wildlife and find ready-made frames for your images. In this heated, dry weather here in the south of Tuscany, as we are waiting for some rain to green back the landscape after it has gone apocalyptically yellow, I thought a memory from cooler…

Birdland

Welcome to the architecturally acclaimed bird sanctuary, nature reserve Škocjanski zatok on the Slovenian coast. I’ve posted images from here already, for example this one: In order to transpose the feeling I had those couple of hours in December as we were strolling around, however, more is needed.

WPC: Nomen est omen

The name is a sign, they say. No wonder then that my name means “eat” in Roman dialect. An overview of my blog in the last week shows that I posted six times even though I’ve been visiting my country of origin, and that pleases me. Let’s see what there was: resilient mountains and hillocks as…

Thursday Doors, December 29

These doors are fresh from the oven (as my Christmas biscuits from Siracusa will be soon – they were so popular that I’m having my second go at them). Today was lovely: first we went to the nature reserve Škocjanski zatok – first three photos – and then we visited Izola, another town on (short)…
