Slovak International Air Fest takes place on the last weekend of August and it is the largest airshow in Slovakia. This year’s highlights included Pterodactyl Flight (World War 1 Planes Sopwith Strutter, Fokker D.VII, Piper L-4H among others), aerobatic groups Al Fursan (United Arab Emirates) and Krila Oluje (Croatia) and Solo Turk flying F-16 Fighting Falcon. The biggest let-down was the very first appearance of Rockwell B-1B Lancer. It’s two very fast fly-by’s weren’t nearly enough to get a good look on this flying beast.
In mid-August 2017, Swiss tennis player Belinda Bencic joined the ranks of Empire Tennis Academy in Trnava, Slovakia. Belinda is working hard on the return to professional tennis after the left wrist surgery in May 2017. After the short meeting with the press, she shared a few laughs on court with her friend Tereza Mihalikova. Afterwards we strolled around Trnava’s historic center to make some off court, leisure time photos.

X-Bionic Summer Tour 2017 is a premier equestrian event in Samorin, Slovakia taking place at the end of July and it’s spread across 8 race days. I always enjoy visiting beautiful equestrian resort and the annual summer events. Unfortunately this year, the author of the courses did not have photographers in mind. Almost every obstacle was positioned for shooting into the Sun. The rest of them could’ve been placed better. This year’s photostory was saved by two evening sessions.
