Above the clouds

The weather has been depressing this week. A fog layer that covered the valleys was thick and humid and dark, and I wanted to see some sun! So on November 1 I packed my camera bag after work at 3 p.m. and rushed to the foot of Mt. Kamniški vrh. The days have been getting shorter and the sunset is at 4.45 already, so I didn't have much time. I broke the cloud cover at about 900 meters above sea level and was actually able to take some fall photos - finally! The foliage is still not fully autumnal, but it was nice to see at least some yellow and orange and red leaves. The sun was low above the horizon and the whole grassy slope glowed red as I was making my way up.

Going down a mountain in the dark is something I'm used to. But going down a mountain in the dark AND the fog is terrible - everything is blurry, you can't focus your eyes, and the whole thing is harder on your brain than it is on your legs. :)

Sašo, don't get me wrong, I love fog photos. I just don't like spending a week in the fog. ;)

Chemfusion, thanks, it was quite a sight!
