Just an F-Blog - #35. Hello, Winter!

Ljubljana got its first snow today. And it was a really cold, windy evening. And the city is full of lights. So, what was I to do.............

Oh, yes, Ljubljana is a really, really, really pretty city.

You'd love it.

Have I mentioned how pretty it is? :)

Wonderful pics...
We're getting snow actually south from where I live, go figure... at 6ºC now in Viladecans

Weather is fucked up then. It's probably some -6 in Ljubljana now and with some northern wind what adds up to the chill.

Glad you like the pics, Xavi.

European cities are so much cooler because of their age.

Cooler... and tonight also pretty cold. :)

Thanks, K!

Well, it's pretty chilly here now. You probably wouldn't like it that much if you had to walk around a bit. :)

Such charm and beauty. I particularly love the water of the river (or is it a canal?) mirroring the old stone steps of the landing, and the vignette of the lamp for "Antika."

There is an old-school Gothick eloquence to these scenes that provides a most agreeable frisson...
paterson_si
Dec. 15th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
It's the river and it's my favourite picture, so I used it as the "opening" shot. :) And Ljubljana is full of little images and details you just need to discover.

Oh, I recognize some places. No water in that fountain now?

Beautiful... your great eye for details again.

I tried to photograph the Christmas lights on the linden trees next to the Municipal Hall in my town. I failed miserably. I think my camera is too slow and that's why the lights get blurred like moving objects.

Our snow keeps melting by day and freezing by night. :(

Nope... fountains are empty now. Too cold for running water. And I hope we get more snow soon. :)

AUGH! DOMOTOZJE! Tell me more about the reindeer lights one!
paterson_si
Dec. 15th, 2009 12:41 am (UTC)
Reindeer.... one of the themes of this year's lights and all is Evolution of forms. So you have many little scenes where you can see how a form develops. So you can see an evolution of reindeer as well. Next to Šuštarski most. :)

It's snowing in Vancouver, too. :-(

I have the fireplace on if you need to come warm up.

I could use some fire.

But I like snow......

Oh that snow is making me feel just a little more comfortable here as I sit in 32c heat and 80% humidity. As always Tomaz, stunning pics and captured so beautifully. We should make plans to visit sometime.

Dec. 15th, 2009 01:14 am (UTC)
Yes, please come and visit. What else do I need to post? :)

And thanks, Al!!!!!

A lovely Xmas fairytale city!

I think I'll prefer seeing Ljubljana in warmer times, though - so I'll just enjoy your wonderful pics from afar... :-)

Dec. 15th, 2009 07:00 am (UTC)
Well, yes, it wasn't really warm last night. :)

Fantastic! It looks so pretty there in your camera's eyes. I want to visit!

Dec. 15th, 2009 07:02 am (UTC)
Thanks, David. But Ljubljana is really pretty in real during this time of the year as well. :) And cold.

You make Ljubljana almost impossible to resist!
The only thing that would have made these better would be to have the photographer making an appearance in some of them!!

Thanks, Dan.

But... but... I am a camera shy person. Sometimes. :)

There is a unique warmth in European cities during the holidays. I love your pics, and having learned that I have a boatload of relatives in Sweden, so someday we hope to spend the holidays there.

Just lovely...

Dec. 15th, 2009 07:03 am (UTC)
And when in Europe, you can also make a little leap south, right? :)

Thanks. :)

We're having our first snowfall tonight. Everyone's in a panic. Hard to believe we're Canadian sometimes...

Lovely photos!

Well, snow, all 5 cm of it in Ljubljana, also pretty much surprised some people. On 15 Dec... Oh well. :)

Thanks, Dr. E.!

the canal
If you blinked, that canal kind of looks like Florence until you blink again. But Florence would never have purple NEONS! Whatsupwitatshit??? It reminds me of Vegas :-(

But the rest is peacefully pretty. It's like a small town in Umbria. No?

Re: the canal
Canal? What canal? Good lord, it's the river through the very heart of the city! :)))) And purple light are just around in December. And, yes, it was peaceful.

Did you use any tripod to take this pictures or you just adjust your ISO?? : )

They are really beautiful pictures. And beautiful city of course.

Dec. 15th, 2009 01:14 pm (UTC)
It's a tripod thing and ISO was 100 all the time. :) Thanks, Sean!!!
