Velika planina sunrise

After spending a good portion of the night shooting star trails we had to get up early to catch the sunrise. Luckily, days are short and the sun doesn't come up until 7.30 in late January. :) But as nice as it was to have a clear sky for the night shooting, I would have liked a few clouds in the morning to add some drama to the sky.

Pink dawn.

First glimpses of the sun.

Soon the whole slope was orange.

The Kamnik Alps in fiery sunrise and the valley of Kamniška Bistrica below.

Kočna and Grintovec.

Planjava, Ojstrica and the village of Velika planina.

Snežnik in the distance (about 85 kms away).

Orange fog in the valley.

Domžalski dom is waking up.

Tired or blissfully happy? ;)

After breakfast we headed back. By then the sky was adorned with some lovely wispy clouds.

Črnuški dom.

An island? :)

Velika planina architecture is really something special.

Do we really have to go back to that fog?

Ko bom velika, bom Ana...k vragu, saj sem že Velika, sam Velka me mika! Samo biti tam, nič drugega... ležati in biti samo preprosto srečna. Imaš prav Ana. Srečna, pa čeprav v dno duše utrujena. Lahko noč. Že vem, kje se bom sprehajala...

Ti si čist nora z temi fotkatkami. Neven no, ko vidim lepe fotke, so lepe, ampak tvoje pokrajinske zmagajo nad vsem.
Pohvale iz moje strani. Blog z najlepšimi pokrainskimi fotkami, kar sm jih videl.

Pika, kdaj greš torej na Velko? :) Drugače pa ja, ležati v snegu in gledati v zvezdnato nebo ... zakon. Še bolje kot ležati v snegu in gledati modro, jasno nebo. Samo mraz se hitro zagrize v kosti. :)

Iztok, hvala, ni treba pretiravat, bom kar zardela. :) Sicer pa narava največkrat sama poskrbi za krasne prizore, jaz jih samo pofotkam.

Nič ne bom rekel :P (da se ne bom spet ponavljal) ;)

Uh, Ana. Zeza me služba. Že davno bi šla, pa čeprav sama, ker se ljudem ni po snegu gazit. Ne vem, morda marca; ne bo več isto, a upam vseeno, da bo vsaj delček tega, kar so pustile tvoje fotografije v mojih možganih, tudi doživeto v živo. In da bo še sneg, seveda.

Sašo, prav, hehe. ;)

Pika, lani je bila tudi marca na Velki še zimska pravljica, ampak nikoli se ne ve. Upam, da ti bo služba dovolila kak frej dan ali vikend za tale izlet.
