Slovenian artist Franc Grom, aged 72, makes unbelievably intricate egg sculptures using just a tiny electric drill and enormous patience. According to National Geographic[1], when finished, each egg contains approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes. While Slovene artisans usually paint their eggs using a technique called drsanka[2] by lightly scratching intricate patterns into the surfaces of colored eggs, carving them was solely Grom’s idea.

Lake Jasna is a picturesque alpine lake that covers a modest surface area of 2.2 ha (5.4 acres). What it lacks in size it makes up for in breathtaking surroundings. Located in northwestern Slovenia, Lake Jasna is 2 km from the small town of Kranjska Gora which is on the Sava Dolinka RIver in the Upper Carniola region of the country. Although not seen in this picture, the lake is ‘guarded’ by a statue of a Zlatorog (golden horn), the legendary chamois of Mount Triglav. [Source]

For those curious, the surrounding peaks are the Julian Alps, a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretches from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia and former Yugoslavia.
