Good pix Mr. Kdet. No skating with that snow. How about cross country skiing?

You should take photos Bitkar. Much that is scenic and interesting in your part of the world.

I'd be interested in photo's in town too. It is good to see real places and real life from real people who are there.

It's been a mild winter here but it's cold now. 12F, -11C right now at 7:30am. Snow still there from yesterday. The only reasonable thing to do yesterday was to take a walk while snowing:

Yes, skating is done until/unless we get a warmup/melt/refreeze cycle. Two storms on horizon w/ 6-9 inches (15-22 cm) snow forecast out of each one. Gonna be hard to get good ice out of that mess.
I used to cross country ski... until I tried downhill. Never looked back. Much better to let gravity do the work.
Besides, a binding tore off of X-C ski so they are wall hangers now.
Would love to head north & do some downhill this winter. (I say this *every* winter)
Only fly in the ointment is I have to clear snow off cabin roof first and unless I get help it's a 3 day process that leaves little energy left for skiing!
(That and I just looked up lift tickets and they are $85 for 8 hours of skiing)
Grin and bear it but don't bare your grin.

after all we used to be one country up until the end of WW1. But this is to north of Prague, not south, so it leads somewhere else ;) It is not uncommon to see Austrians with Czech surnames. I dont want to write about covid in this channel, but ya, its no bueno in cz right now.

3D Pix for a change this time.
Some out-takes and renders along the way from an old project get rescued from backup and earn a web redemption in a new gallery.

@Spacekdet That ice boat looks cool. Good details too. How about some new CG?

@Bitkar I'd like to see more of your hikes and adventures.

Saw your sci fi flip through video. Now you are inspired to create CG right?
