A winter morning in Bohinj

I needed to take a really good photo for an on-going photo contest on one of the photography forums. As landscapes are my strong suit, I chose Bohinj, the ever beautiful jewel amidst the Julian Alps. After getting up in the middle of the night I drove there and was met by a not so beautiful sunrise, or should I say no sunrise at all as there were clouds in the east.


Realizing there would be no dramatic sweeping views, I concentrated on the reflections:


Mildly disappointed and freezing I headed to a nearby hotel for a cup of coffee. An hour later or so when most of the clouds had dissipated, I returned to the lake and began taking photos with more fervor.




And the photo I entered into the contest was this one. It made it into top ten and got me into the grand finale. :)

Uf, kakšni motivi, kakšne barve, kakšne linije. Ne ga srat, tole je noro, kaj dela široki kot.
S takimi fotkami bi lahko igrali na čustva in se zoperstavili želji "veljakom", da pozidajo in degradirajo obalo jezera. Ko pomislim na to, me v trenutku močno zaboli v želodcu. Pa ne od slabe hrane!
Vsa čast za to izredno serijo!!!

Tvoje fotke mi zmeraj polepšajo dan! Čestitke seveda za to uvrstitev!
Te lahko dodam pod linke na mojem blogiču?

Hvala vsem trem! Ste mi polepšali dan! :)
Pešo, res upam, da se v Bohinju ne bodo šli kakšnih megalomanskih projektov pozidave in "razvoja". Se mi zdi, da se včasih res ne zavedamo, kakšne naravne bisere imamo.
Tine, seveda me lahko dodaš. :)

Lepo si se potrudila z obdelavo in kjub dolgočasni zimski idili brez snega uspela iz fotk spravit maksimum.

Hvala, Uros in Domen! Jah, letosnja zima res ni ravno na kozo pisana krajinarjem. Nic snega, vse rjavo ... Bo pomlad toliko lepsa, upam! :)
