About me

Welcome to the Caelum Natura website.

My name is Leon G. M. I am 37 years old “young” and an enthusiastic hiker, in love with nature, especially hills and mountains. I am the author/owner of photographs and texts on this website. It’s a personal blog about hiking, beautiful nature, mountaineering, photography, and hiking equipment through my eyes and a lens of not-at-all-professional equipment.

Slovenia - Beautiful views, hiking trails, equipment, crampons review, smart watch review, hiking boots review, Kamniško Savinjske Alpe, Julijske Alpe, Karavanke

The name is combined of two Latin phrases. “Caelum” meaning heaven, and “Natura“, meaning nature.

I hope you’ll enjoy the content and I wish you a truly amazing day. If there is anything you like, please share with your friends. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you.

Social media

If It catches my eye, I’ll capture it in a photo! Sometimes unimportant and trivial things, sometimes boundless horizons. I am not a professional photographer, and I don’t present my self as one. I capture photos with my mobile phone simply as a hiker, looking for what is beautiful and interesting.

Facebook and Instagram pages Caelum Natura are, just as an official website, dedicated mainly to my hiking routes, hills, and mountains, but also nature and beautiful “things” in general. Every corner I visit I immortalize with a photo. I don’t use any special or professional photo equipment. Just my mobile phone and Lightroom.

The general idea behind photos is not “cold” realism but somewhat creative approach to mother nature, history and everything I find interesting on my hiking trips. Hope you find it interesting to see and read.
