The Lovrenc lakes are not true lakes. They are true high peat swampland, which developed here 8000 years ago, after the Ice Ages. Glaciers retreated, hollowing out the Pohorje tonalite and leaving depressions, which were covered by water. They quickly became marshes and over the centuries, true bogs arose. Lack of contact with groundwater is characteristic and it is fed by precipitations alone.

I was on a business trip to Dublin this week and my colleague and me managed to get a few hours after work to visit Tree Rock mountain in the south of Dublin (Wikipedia article). As you can see from the photos, the weather was typically summerly Irish
One of the rocks the mountain got its name from…

The a few additional pictures can be found here. I would have posted the link to OSM map, but it’s in the maintenance mode this weekend and thus unreachable.

Nice pattern on this spider, I don’t know what species it is:
And a couple of shots created with HDR tonemapping. Had to carry my tripod for quite a long distance to get these:

A few pictures from my trip to Crno jezero on Pohorje (OSM map) last Friday. I haven’t met a single soul on my 4.5 hours hike, so I had a liberty to wander around and experiment with some new HDR techniques using my tripod.
Crno jezero (“Black lake”) is an artificial lake made on a marshy terrain made for logging purposes some 150 years ago (and used for this purpose until 1959). The name of the lake comes from the dark reddish color of its water. The lake and the surrounding area is now a nature reserve.
Below are some of the pictures I took, you can see the whole set here. All pictures are geotagged.

I haven’t done any real posting for a long time, so at least I’ll post some pictures this time.
Crni vrh (1543 m, OSM map link) is the highest peak of the Pohorje mountain. The area is a real treat for nature lovers and hikers. Since it wasn’t really mapped on the OSM, I’ve decided to take my friends for hiking there and I managed to take a few pictures along the way (here’s the whole set).
Ribnica lake (elevation 1500 m):
