I have had an intention to visit Sečovlje Saltpans for quite a while. Considering it's only one and a half hour drive, I have been putting it off for far too long.

However, I have finally done it during the last autumn. I was really looking forward to it. It is supposed to be one of more popular bird nesting places in Slovenia, which results in a great photo opportunity.

When I got there, at first I was a bit disappointed. I haven't been thinking about that before, but the nesting period was over months before and most of the birds were preparing for their yearly journey south.

The disappointment lingered around for only a couple of moments, before being replaced with astonishment. The surrounding was just so beautiful and peaceful. Sun was reflecting of the calm sea water in shallow pools. But all of that was just nothing compared to the sunset to come. Well, judge it for yourself...

The result was a beautiful afternoon, which ended with a delicious evening dinner. Have I mentioned before that I just love seafood. Mmmmm... seafood.

Web statistics

This is turning out to be another IT related post, but don't go running away just because of that. You might learn something useful.

Like the title suggests I will be writing about web statistics and analytical tools. The free ones that is.

I have been using different kinds of web counters for ages.

Not much time has past since we were all happy with a simple number counter on the entering page of our webpage. Then along came advanced web statistic tools, which unfortunately were available only for a certain monthly fee. One of the most promising ones was Urchin Web Analytics Reporting Service.

On a beautiful sunny day Google has decided to buy them and offer the fully functional web analytics tool to the public for free. Google decided to name this product Google Analytics. Follow the link if you want to find out more about it.

In one of the previous posts I have already posted a screenshot of one of the available statistics - Web browsers used by visitors of this blog.

Google Analytics is also linked to Google AdWords service – together they make a truly powerful tool. Go check it out, it will help you bring targeted traffic to your site.
You can find the link to AdWords at the bottom of the right frame.

Beech mast in winter

This is how a beech mast looks on an idyllic winter day.

Photo was taken during a short break by a cross-country skiing track (Vojsko, Slovenia). In spite of the intentional macro blur, a skier can be seen in the background.
