Our photo club organized (Jaka, to be exact) a two-day hike to Mt. Krn in the Julian Alps. Seven of us drove to the Lepena valley on a Friday afternoon and hiked to the hut at the Krn Lake. We just caught the last sun rays on Mr. Krn.
The light was much better in the morning.
Mt. Krn was basking in the sun while we were still in the shade.
When we finally left the lake after more than an hour of shooting, the sun almost reached it.
The trail ascends to a small plateau and then starts up a scree slope.
After less than 2 hours Klemen and I were close to the top.
Views over the Julian Alps from the top of Mt. Krn (2244 meters above sea level). Mt. Triglav in the distance, and Krn Lake down below.
Layers of smog and Mt. Snežnik in the distance.
At the top from the left: Jaka, Aleš, Bine, Klemen, Maja, Brane.
Aleš was the only one with a bright T-shirt which made for a nice foreground. :P
The Soča valley to the north-west.
It was unusually warm for October 1 and on the way down we suffered great thirst...
...and we couldn't wait to take off our hiking shoes and soak our feet in the cold lake. And drink some beer. :)
One more look toward the lake and off we went back to the valley.
Other club members took photos, too. Surprising since we are from a photo club, right? :) Have a look at the photos by Jaka and... wait, nobody else processed them yet. :P
