In the mountains above Bohinj

We'd been talking about organizing a multi-day hike into the mountains for some time in our photo club and finally, seven members spent a glorious weekend in the Julian Alps. Three of us hiked to Planina Viševnik on Saturday afternoon, just in time to catch the last sun rays illuminating the cabins.


Early next morning four more friends arrived from Planina Blato, and at the same time we could hear extremely loud and angry roaring ... by a bear! The beast was somewhere quite close! The views almost made me forget about it for a few seconds. ;)

The fog in the valley kept rising, but it never reached us.

Mountains to the east.

Triglav.

After a hearty breakfast we finally set off towards our goal of the day: Mala Tičarica.

The hike across the woods and pastures was very pleasant, especially when we didn't hear the bear's howling any more. :)

Planina Ovčarija.

At the foot of Mala Tičarica.

Mahavšček was enveloped in clouds.

Views from the top of Mala Tičarica (2071 meters) to the west. Double Triglav Lake below.

Views to the north: Veliko Špičje range, Triglav Lakes Valley, Zelnarica, Kanjavec.

Nice clouds!

We were too early for the truly golden larches, but that's just a convenient excuse to go back next weekend. :)
On Monday morning the weather turned sour, cold and windy with promises of rain, so we headed back to the valley. It was fun and hopefully it won't take another two years before we organize something like this again. ;)

Res lepa reportaža. Imaš pravo mero pri obdelavi fotk.
Tisto o medvedu pa bo verjetno pomota, ker medveda v naravi težko slišiš rjoveti. Skoraj zagotovo je šlo za rukanje jelena. Lahko poslušaš, kako ruka jelen in primerjaš s tistim, kar ste slišali: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TKtBgaciX8

Hoj Aleš, hvala. Glede rjovenja: verjemi, da smo se tudi mi spraševali, ali gre za rukanje jelena, ampak ni bilo nič podobno glasovom s posnetka. Tudi nekaj planincev, ki smo jih srečali kasneje tisti dan, je povedalo, da so videli sveže medvedje sledi in kakce na poti. Seveda pa zagotovo nikoli ne bomo vedeli, ali se je res oglašal medved ali kakšna druga zverina. :)

Ana, prav občudujem tvoje HDRe(če sploh so HDRji), ker si edina za katero vem, da jih zna naresti naravne. Vedno, ko se ljudje lotijo izdelave HDR fotografij, vedno je rezultat plastična in umetna fotografija. Čestitke! Tudi jaz grem ta vikend v to smer, planino v Lazu in tam okoli:)

Uf, fantastične fotke, kaj naj drugega sploh rečem. Človeka kar prime, da bi bil tam!

Super!

Beautifullll!!!

Matej, hvala, nekaj je res HDRjev, in z redkimi izjemami - če bi rada dosegla kak poseben učinek - se res trudim, da so videti naravno. Risankast rezultat tudi meni ni všeč. Uživaj na bohinjskih planinah in bodi pozoren, če boš kje slišal ali videl medveda. :)

Simon, Alan, Manuella, hvala! :)
