Visit to Demanovska SlobodyJaskyna Cave

Recently I've been again in Jasna. I've been there actually because I went for ski. The truth is that this year the weather wasn't really that appropriate for ski. Raining, heavy snowing at high temperatures.

Hopefully the next year we will be more lucky.

However, on Saturday, though it was a very nice day for ski, the previous night it snowed continuous, I've decided to go with other colleagues visit a nearby cave.

I've heard about it, they say that it is a nice one. Well I wanted to convince myself. Went from the hotel to the cave. In order to get at the entrance you first have to climb a zigzag road by foot. That is just in order to warm you. The cave has 991 steps. The price for entrance was 8 euro. We catch the visit that starts at 11:30. All takes about an hour and 10 minutes. It is presented only in Slovak and Polish Languages. Such a pity.

I will let you see the pictures yourself.

All I can tell you is that I was very impressed by this cave. It has all kind of landscapes/elements that you could find within a cave.

Don't forget to share with your friends if you enjoyed it ;)

Thanks for watching!

Winter at grandpa's village, Borod


well, it is almost one year since latest post. I am really ashamed of it. However, the good news is that I have a lot of nice albums that I really want to share with you.

These photos I've taken 2 weeks ago on a chilly weather in the village where I grew up, Borod, is 60 km away from Oradea. It is a hilly place with lots of forests, wild animals, waters and so forth.

Now I hope that you will enjoy viewing this gallery. And if you liked at least one of them it will be a great encouragement for me if you will write down a comment.

Don't forget to leave a comment. Thanks!

How should you react when you see your stock image in a magazine?

Today was a very beautiful day for me.

It happened that a colleague of mine promised that will bring me a magazine where, she said, I will see information about a ski resort, called Val Gardena, where just happened that I have been 2 weeks ago. It is a magazine that is freely distributed by MOL well known filling station and company. The edition is January 2015. Can be found here.

I opened it and there they had photos and info with ski resorts from Europe. One of them was Jasna. It is a resort I have been last year. If you remember I wrote about it. You could see this post for more info at http://adrian-alexa.blogspot.ro/2014/11/ski-vacation-in-jasna-february-2014.html

Well, there was an image I spotted which resembles very much with one of my stock photo I have online. And then quickly I navigated to check it out. Indeed it was. Yeeeei!!! I was so happy!! My!! What? My image in MOL's magazine???

Here is the online version of magazine. The image I talk about is the one under the black arrow.
The article talks about Jasna Ski Resort.

The truth is that I don't know for sure from which of stock websites the image was downloaded, however I am very happy. It could be any of them. On dreamstime it was downloaded once and on shutterstock for 5 times, so far. 

It is not the money you got that makes you happy but the fact when you see your images used by someone so important. 

I will keep going on! Hope to increase my portfolio this year a lot :)
