I had wanted to do a serious star trail shooting for a while now and after carefully examining the weather forecast, Luka and I decided to head to Velika planina last week in hopes of getting some nice pictures. The afternoon light was nice enough and as the sunset approached, the snow turned orange and red! The blue hour in the snow-covered mountains was serene and peaceful, and after a hearty plate of jota it was time to get our tripods and remote releases ready! First we shot around the chapel with the Kamnik Alps as the backdrop, and later, when the moon had set, I wandered around Domžalski dom (Domžale hut) and took some more shots. We were lucky: the sky was clear, and the wind spared us as there was only a slight breeze, and even the breeze died down later. Satisfied with the results we slept for a few hours before getting up for the sunrise shots. But more about that in the next post. For now, afternoon and night piccies:
