As some of you already know, I recently went on a trip to Southern Moravia, where we visited the Lednicko-Valtický Areal – a beautiful cultural-natural complex of lakes and buildings registered by UNESCO.

One of the strangest buildings near the castle in Lednice is the 62 meter-high Minaret which is used as an observation tower. It has 302 steps that make you incredibly dizzy going up and even dizzier going down.

This is part of the caracole shot from below.

Drawn to the hidden beauty of the world around us, finding inspiration in small, simple and humble things, searching for the spark that lies dormant… And trying to capture it all through the lens :))

    Nadherna fotografie! (Mj. bracha byl v tymu, ktery areal restauroval pred par lety). Lednice a Palava je nadherne misto, jezdili jsme tam s Prirodovedeckou Fakultou na exkurze. Je tam pomerne jednecna flora i fauna v Ceske republice. Hezke vzominky.

  • Děkuju moc za milou poznámku, Olda :)
    Celý areál je skutečně krásný. Příroda je nádherná a cítili jsme se tam báječně (i přes mraky komarů ;))
