Sunrise in the mountains

We set off when it was still pitch dark. Trudging through the snow and without our headlamps on we climbed the trail to the plateau of Velika planina. And after emerging from the forest we were greeted with soft bluish light announcing the dawn.

Soon the clouds turned yellow and pink.

Mt. Ojstrica and the village of Velika planina bathed in the first light.

The pink light in the east contrasted the dark trees.

Then the sun came up shyly from behind the mountain with a beautiful mozaic of clouds.

Soft and blue.

I turned around and fell in love with the pattern in the snow.

The first morning sun rays can be so magical, especially with the backdrop of dark clouds.

My friends Luka, Andrej, Črt and Alen were hard at work trying to capture the sweet light while it lasted.

The play of light was mind-boggling and laying on the ground to find a different perspective seemed like the most natural thing to do.

To be continued ...

Ana, super fotke. Barve, pa občutek za kompozicijo. Zdaj ko vidim kaj se da, se bom moral malo bolj potruditi!

Hvala, Črt! A ni bilo krasno? Sicer pa se nikar ne omalovažuj, nobenega razloga ni za to, pa še slabo je za ego. ;)
