While We Wait for the Romans

Since we’ve got exciting news about some strange rectangles on Planina polje, we were occupied by the thought of finding (or at least confirming the existence of) archaeology in a most unusual place: a flood-prone, marshy karst field. So we were back at the first opportunity, this time with a better infrared camera, hunting for … Read more

Earth Day 2024

We are rather blessed. Slovenia and Nature go well together. Surely, we made our share of fucking around that resulted in finding out, but in general, we do okay. Lying at the intersection of the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Panonnian plain, and the Dinaric mountains, the ecosystems of Slovenia are diverse, quite unique, and ever … Read more

Fight with the Winds, Round 6

The camera is not even high above the Marshes … Really, nothing special. Except for one thing: it … Read more

Satellite of Love

The middle of December is rarely a good time for flying kites. It’s cold, it’s damp, it’s dark … the winds die down, the sun sets wayyy too early – if it wasn’t for the aggressive festive spirit, December would be the worst month of them all. But here and there a beautiful sunny and … Read more

Who Flew Higher?

After the fantastic KAP session above Lake Cerknica – that brought us to the even more fantastic story of Magnificent Margie, check it out! – we were going through the big heap of photos when our eyes suddenly lit up. Notice something on this kite aerial shot of a huge meander od Stržen creek, temporarily … Read more

A Magical Lake and a Tribute to Real Flyers

The intermittent Lake Cerknica is, well, magical. I mean, look: We’ve flown above this wonder of nature a couple of times already, but it is never the same and is always stunning. In the late Spring when the waters are receding and the plants are growing insanely, covering the former bottom of the lake in … Read more
