Are you looking forward to the winter season? Be it either way, here is above the clouds view of snow covered hills in Slovak High Tatras in an altitude of 2634 meters / 8641 feet above the sea-level.

The mountains of High Tatras are the most popular natural attraction in the heart of Europe – Slovakia. These mountains are actually the highest mountain range in the whole Carpathian Mountains, so tourists and hikers have a lot of natural attractions, as well as landscapes to explore. Because of that, High Tatras are visited by hundreds of thousands visitors each year, during all seasons. The High Tatra mountins belong to the Tatras national park, TANAP.

While it is still autumn now, keep in mind that if you happen to be in Slovakia during the wintertime you definitely shouldn't forget to visit this location. Don’t miss sightseeings from hills located in the High Tatras mountain chain, Slovakia!

A cloudy, but sunny view showing the central square in the town of Bardejov. The historical architecture of this well-preserved medieval town is completely intact and declared as a Town Conservation Reserve since 1950. It is also one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. On this photo you can see two main heritage landmarks of the town of Bardejov; the historical town hall and the Basilica of St. Egidius.

This monumental Gothic Basilica was first mentioned in the 13th century and it is a great example of a three nave sacral construction with multiple chapels. The Bardejov's town hall was built in 16th century and it consists of two architectural styles; the lower part represents the Gothic style, whereas the upper part represents the Renaissance style. These days it is opened to the public as the Saris Museum.

Did you know that Saris Museum is actually the oldest museum in Slovakia?!

The town of Bardejov is located in Saris region, north-eastern Slovakia. If you will be nearby don’t forget to take a walk there; at least through the historical central square or even through sideby streets surrounding it. I really like the historical atmosphere of this location. It offers plenty of opportunities for photography; when walking around area of this heritage site.

Early autumn view of massive rocky hill called the Tupa Skala. This natural formation is part of the Rocks of Vysny Kubin, Vysnokubinske Skalky, located right above the Vysny Kubin village, Orava region, northern Slovakia. The area of the Rocks of Vysny Kubin is a very important archaeological locality, where many prehistoric artifacts and settlements of Celtic origin have been excavated.

This place is a great attraction for recreational travelers; especially people seeking for relax in nature during the part-day trip.

Did you know that the Tupa Skala is also becoming more and more popular among climbers?

The village of Vysny Kubin is birthplace of famous P. O. Hviezdoslav. Pavol Orszagh Hviezdoslav, born in February 2, 1849 in Vysny Kubin was the most famous Slovak poet, dramatist and for a short time member of the Czechoslovak parliament.

Today was a nice sunny day, so I took a walk in the countryside and also spent some time in our garden taking photos of flowers and insects. Here is a close-up view of a busy honey bee collecting pollen on a pink chrysanthemum blossom I captured in our garden a few hours ago.

Out of all other species that are known to pollinate, bees are the most abundant when it comes to the task. The majority of flowers that survives in our environment are able to do so because of bees.

Did you know that there are actually three different types of pollination categorized as self-pollination, pollination from a different flower and pollination from a different plant?

Cross pollination is the type of pollination that is consisted from a different plant. This type of pollination is quite important when it comes to diversity and the genetics of plants for the success of various species. The pollen that is produced inside of the stamens of flowers is transferred over to the female plants which are also known as pistils. The weight of the pollination grain will determine whether a plant is pollinated by the wind or an insect. Grass and wheat seeds are often transferred by the wind for the purpose of pollination, while heavier plants like fruit trees rely on insects for the pollination process to be successful.

However, smaller plants such as the flower in the photo, can still be pollinated by insects, and don’t only rely on the wind to make the transfer. In some places around the world there is a commercial pollination phenomenon that occurs more often than natural pollination because of a lack of vegetation. Some bees that were considered wild bees at one point are now commercial bees since they have been bred commercially for crop pollination. These bees collect the pollen and the nectar with their hind legs; the sacs on the back of them that they have created.

Bees are quite an important part of our ecosystem just like the fruit and the seeds that come from the pollination. The majority of flowers that survive in our environment are able to do so because of bees! ;)

I am spending this cloudy rainy day browsing, classifying and preparing photos I took few months ago in Photoshop for final use. Besides of Photoshop work, this also consists of writing tons of proper English titles, descriptions and keywords for every single photo as these are required by worldwide stock photography agencies. It is really a challenge sometimes to write a usable English text that tells of things seen on the picture in the descriptive way.

Actually, to write some sort of really descriptive English text for each photo is usually much more time consuming per photo than actual Photoshop work itself!

Anyway, here is one clear blue sky scenery from my photography set of "Liptov 2018" I took two months ago during my time at the shores at the Liptovska Mara lake, in the clear summertime afternoon of already mentioned year.

These dominant hills are called, from left to right, Pravnac, Lomne (Lomy), as well as rocky-formed reef of Cerenova. Recreational tourists also may know that the famous Prosiecka Valley can be seen partially visible on the rightmost side of this picture.

I have taken this image just a few kilometers from a small village of Bobrovnik located northwest of the Liptovsky Mikulas town. This area is seated in scenery of the Chocsky Mountains, a mountain range situated between the Great Fatra and the Western Tatras.

The Liptovska Mara is the second largest lake in Slovakia by area (27 km2 / 10 mi2) and it is a very popular holiday destination for travelers and fisherman from all around the world; especially for tourists from nearby Poland. This lake is located on the Vah river, between towns of Ruzomberok and Liptovsky Mikulas, northern Slovakia.

All the great possibilities of recreational enjoyment in the area surrounding Liptovska Mara are extended by vast amount of cottages, family pensions, restaurants and hotels. Nearby this lake there are also many thermal pools and resorts available, as well as one of the biggest aqua-parks in the Central Europe.

If you will be nearby be sure to stop there. This location has so much to offer, both for regular tourists looking for relax and recreation on the beach, as well as for photographers looking for some picturesque natural sceneries! ;)

A colorful countryside view from yesterday showing colorful meadows with road and cableway leading to down from Kubinska Hola mountain, with the Great Choc mountain and other Chocsky Hills seen in the distance. I have taken this photo in the Orava region, popular vacation destination located just a few kilometers north of the city of Dolny Kubin, northern Slovakia.

The Great Choc is the highest peak (alt. 1611 meters / 5285 feet a.s.l.) of the Chocsky hills and it is a popular destination for a whole-day trips. Each year, thousands of hikers, as well as recreational tourists climb the Great Choc mountain.

Did you know that even various polls have shown the Great Choc as the one of the most popular mountains in Slovakia?

The Kubinska Hola mountain is the second highest peak (alt. 1346 meters / 4416 a.s.l.) of Oravska Magura, located directly above the town of Dolny Kubin. The massive back stretches from the Prislop saddle to Mincol, with which it forms an attractive tourist location with Ski Park Kubinska hola and nearby Kubinska hola cottages. There is also important SHMU meteorological radar located on top of this mouantin.

From the top of Kubinska hola you can see Dolny Kubin town, Mala and Velka Fatra, High and Low Tatras, Velky Choc, Orava and Kysucke Beskydy.

The region of Orava is also a popular tourist destination because of a lot of mountains and resorts, as well as historical castles and travel attractions located throughout whole region. The Kubinska Hola is also very popular destination for skiers, but not only for them. It has its visitors throughout the whole year during all seasons.

On this photo you can see a recent view showing boats near Marina Liptov, resort at Liptovska Mara, with the Rohace mountains peaked on the left side; as viewed from place located near Bobrovnik village, just a few kilometers northwest of the city of Liptovsky Mikulas, in Liptovsky region, northern Slovakia.

The Rohace mountains are part of Western Tatra mountain range and they are a very popular hiking destination in Slovakia. In the distance can be seen also the famous peak of Krivan, part of High Tatras. This peak is frequently used national symbol in Slovakia. Various surveys among hikers and recreational tourists have ranked the Krivan as the Slovak country's most popular mountain!

The Liptovska Mara is the second largest lake in Slovakia; by the area of 27 km2. It is a very popular destination for travelers and fishermen, especially during summer and autumn months.

Be sure to take a look at my older photos of this location at Liptovska Mara. This place changed a lot! Anyway, Liptovska Mara has so much to offer, both for regular tourists looking for relax, walks and recreation on the beach, as well as for photographers looking for some sceneries to take photos of! ;)

Here is a view of a tourist path leading to the Great Rozsutec peak in the Little Fatra, that I captured during my walks in the location of Vratna Valley, northern Slovakia. This famous mountain is based southwest of the village Zazriva, about 30 km / 18 mi of the Zilina city, where it is seated entirely in the eastern side of the mountains; being part of the Mala Fatra National Park and Rozsutec National Nature Reserve since 1967.

As you have perhaps recognized from the photo, this peak is forming the top pyramid characterized by limestone walls and chin. Even because of that it is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Slovak republic and great location for a whole day trip.

With massive gorges in the area and a varied geological history Mala Fatra has become home to a wide range of both flora and fauna, housing today some of the most rare species of animals found throughout Slovakia as they live along its powerful ridges and among its many waterfalls that find their way throughout the gorges.

Whether you are planning on traveling to Slovakia, have already been to this majestic country or you are simply spending this Sunday looking for travel inspiration here at Google+ photography feeds, one thing is certain; a picture is worth a thousand words, so whenever you travel somewhere make sure you take a lot of photos! If nothing else, then at least to help your travel memories last longer in pictures of that special time. ;)
