Sunrise in the mountains III

The sunrise and sweet light were over too quickly. The plateau of Velika planina is not that small and it takes a while to get from one end to the other. So in practice, it's impossible to cover all great spots while the sweet light lasts. The sun was rising fast, and by the time we got to the ridge of Zeleni rob, the light was already white and harsh. Nevertheless, the views of the Kamnik Alps were breathtaking, the mountains seemed to be so close! We returned via the ridge trail, had lunch at one of the huts and returned to the valley around 2 p.m. Despite low temperatures and merciless wind this was such an exhilarating hike!

hehe, nice term: "merciless" wind. the trip was, despite the cold and strong winds, well worth it. i like the third photo, also the seventh, but in my opinion the last one is a winner. we should do this again. bb

@AndrejK: hehe, wasn't it merciless? ;) Thanks for the favorites! It's interesting to see how different people like different shots. And yes, we will definitely do this again.

@AndrejV: thanks! Sure, you're welcome to come along. Drop me an email (it's in the profile) and we'll work something out.
