An epic weekend, full of traveling, dust, gravel and great weather. As I said in the last year: “That was awesome – a great rally!”

And those are my favorites:

Improvise for a good spot

First off – there’s a rally coming up (http://rallyestonia.com/) – so as always we drove through all of the stages, looking for perfect spots for taking pictures. Unfortunately due to the recent sad events in the Estonian Rally World most of the “good” spots are marked as “prohibited area”, as the organizers can’t guarantee the safety of the spectators outside of the marked areas. Of course there are other reasons as well (crops, private land etc.).
I wish I could sit on that spot all the weekend, but it’s located in the deepest, darkest zone of the “prohibited area”. I hope that all the co-drivers will mark these turns as “slow” or “dangerous”.
With this picture I wish you all a nice weekend, enjoy spectating the rally, driving and get back home safe!
After some dusty gravel roads we parked our car and went orienteering. As a fluffy person I decided to pick a shorter track (4km) – I managed to run/walk 4.88km in 1h 1min 40sec. After finishing I realized that my sporty wife took a longer track and wouldn’t be back soon – so I took the camera out yet again. These were the results:
Anyways as I have a lot of followers and I can’t check all of your blogs and homepages – why don’t you leave me a comment on how are you and what are your plans for the weekend?
I remember that in my last post I promised a new picture or a post every week. Seems like I couldn’t keep up to my promises. Actually I haven’t even taken any pictures recently. Why?
Well there are many reasons.
1) Last minute wedding planning, (I’m married now – Yipeeeee).
2) Changed my xPeria Arcs to Sonim XP3300 (Battery life up to ~3weeks battery life, but no wifi or 3G – that means I won’t be posting on Twitter).
Xperia Arc S
3) Changed Windows 7 to Linux Ubuntu (System is a lot of faster and more reliable).
4) Since Linux doesn’t support Lightroom nor Photoshop, I have to use Darktable and Gimp (Takes some time to get used to them).
Hopefully I can post some new pictures soon.
I think this bird is carrying poop. Do they do that, bring poop out of their nests like that? I should probably contact somebody who knows something about birds and ask, it would also be interesting to know which member of the tit family are they. They are far too small to be great tits, but the markings seem different than those of marsh or willow tits. A coal tit perhaps?
When the farm was built, the river was probably the fastest and easiest connection route to the nearest city (Tartu). Nowadays, the place is nearly deserted. No-one wants to live in the middle of nowhere, no matter how beautiful the sights are.
P.s. Notice how people back then were clever enough to build their houses higher up, so that they wouldn’t be affected by flood waters?
