Članska vas Village

33374. Žan, Jerko and Brajko (plus Gregor's hand) at the table, arranged for a degustation of quite a few high voltage IPA beers such as Green Devil, 6.0 V, SIPA HFB, 6.1 V, Hardcore 9.2 V (center right) and a batch of four de rigueur native and Bohemian brands (center left). All provided by Brajko, on occasion of his birthday, one tenth less than the Christ's years.



33375. Cheers! - Gregor and Ile



Skednena jama Cave, Testing the Newly Acquired Canon 24 mm f 2.8 EF-s "pancake" Lens


33377. All the spruces, victims of February 2014 sleet, were not removed from the forest. Wind broke such dead trunk (about 40 cm in diameter) and the largest piece fell over the trail to Skednena jama cave. In the picture: view of the blocked trail from the east.



33378. View of the blocked trail from the west



33379. View of Planinsko polje with frozen Unica river from the viewpoint above the Pod stenami sinkholes

33381. Algae on the concretions of the western wall, close to the limit of the daylight reach



33382. LED Lenser SEO 5 headlamp on the rock (for distance measurement) in the middle of the main tunnel, view north



33383. More elaborate photo of the same scene with the on-camera flash, headlamp attached to a hazelnut pole, some 3 m above ground in the wall indentation to the left in the picture, plus a helmet headlamp center right. Exposure data: f 5.6, 30 sec., ISO 1600



33384. View out through the northern cave entrance, available light plus on-camera flash

Članska vas Village


33387. Brajko, Članska vas Benjamin



33388. Jerko at the firewood wall which is now more or less complete.



33389. View of the gazebo from the southeast



33390. Marko, standing on the newly erected foot support (by Žan), and Brajko



33391. Other side of the main culinary course: cooked potatoes, carrots and apple, a bite of neck steak by Brajko, Khorasan wheat bread, yogurt, carrot and apple jam, vegetable water. Poultry ražnjići, partly shown above, are not part of this meal.



33392. Brajko is slicing the bread while Marko, Ile and Žan are engaged in a fierce debate connected to the head-legs orientation of the couple, grotto's brightest member and his better half, who a few days ago successfully baptized the gazebo table in the role of a bed. Žan argued that the legs must have been infallibly in the direction of his finger, i. e. closer to the stove, otherwise the heads would be just too hot.



33393. For an open-air smalltalk Jerko reignited the campfire outside the gazebo. At first it was more or less smoke, but ...



33394. ... as the night started to fall, as here on a picture with gazebo and the moon,



33395. it provided a pleasant warmth and cozy air for Brajko, Jerko, Marko and Žan.
