Ljubljana's Winter Stories

The study year has started quite a long ago, unforgettable summer holidays are just a nostalgic memory for the following months and the air temperature outside has finally reached the freezing point. Foggy mornings and early sunsets are just an everyday routine. As the winter befits, snow has whitened lawns and rooftops. That's the time, surprisingly, I love to discover the city I live in, most.

To taste a piece of Ljubljana's winter scenes and life, take a photo trip through my photos. Hope you'll enjoy.

Nice pics. Are they HDR? They look just right, not overdone at all (that is assuming that they are HDR shots ).

really nice work. Cities and landscapes in the snow look really good, just sucks having to shovel it all out.

Gorgeous shots
Someone unfamiliar with the city might think its much larger than it really is, if looking at some of those photos of Ljubljana's downtown
