Chasing the snow storm

The 16th of March was highlighted with a returning of winter, despite it had been around +7-10°C the past weeks.

But as the Winter is my favorite season, I was extremely glad it came back. It this was an epic return indeed!

In this post I will show a chase for that snow storm.

Daugavpils Zoo and University: part 1

Recently I have spent several days in the city called Daugavpils the East of Latvia. The city with interesting history and its own unique lifestyle. 

Though my main goal was to take pictures in Daugavpils zoo and even more exciting place: Daugavpils University research center "Ilgas" - an old manor in the middle of forest reservation Silene. 

So this post is covering misty morning shooting in an ancient and beautiful forest several hundred meters away from border on European Union.

Photos from Lilaste district

This time it's a small post about a recreational trip to Lilaste district, which is located 40km away from Riga.
The whole district is quite poorly inhabited by men, so it is a good place to take one-day trips in its forests with wild lakes.

Seaside bicycle ride

I'm starting a series of posts with nature photo trips backstages and descriptions. My blog just started to function recently, but the amount of material is huge and diverse, and I hope it would be useful and entertaining for you, dear readers.

Seaside bicycle ride.

I would want to start with this year's last summer days occasional morning bicycle trip to the seaside.
It usually takes about half an hour to reach the Baltic beach of the Gulf of Riga from my house, but the road is so boring when you ride it all the time.
