Slovenia; Day 5 – Julian Alps

Julian Alps

Today we went on another trip around the Julian Alps. The weather was loads better and the views were great.

Julian Alps

Given that we were getting up earlist anyway, I made the effort to get up a little bit earlier for sunrise and go down to the lake.

At the Pier

I had hoped for a sunrise, but mist will have to do! There was no one else around so it was very peaceful.

Lake Bohinj

I got my flip flops and went it – the lake was warmer than I expected so it was actually quite pleasant.

Misty Mornings

After I went back somewhat soggy to the hotel, got changed and we went to breakfast.

Coming undone

After my dry spell of literally no motivation or ideas, I felt motivated yesterday and this morning to shoot something a bit more conceptual. I had no clear idea on either day what I wanted to do exactly, but I picked up some props and went out with my (more or less traditional) 10 minutes before work. I went to the same place both days, it is on the way to work; I just have to pull over hop out of the car, walk about 30 steps and I have fields, bushes and trees – whichever I want!

Yesterday I was behind some bushes (that sounds a bit dodgy : P ), and today my camera was just in front of the bushes, so I was quite literally 10 steps away from where I was the day before.

I had no idea where I was going with this, but I’d half edited it on break/lunch and I knew that I wasn’t 100% happy with it when I left work. I did have a back up shot that I am more than happy with though so I wasn’t too worried. Another thing which was somewhat out of the ordinary was that it was sunny when I went out, and I knew it would remain sunny. For shots like this I almost never shoot when the sun is out (save sunset/sunrise) but I thought I’d try it to see what would happen.

Then, as we were watching Masterchef suddenly loads of ideas started coming to me. No idea where from, as Masterchef doesn’t exactly scream creative art just fancy plate arrangements, but I’m not complaining! ^_^ I originally had this idea for another shot, but as soon as I got upstairs and flipped it upside down I knew this was something which would work with it – the blank over exposed sky was just screaming for some dust : P

December Mornings

Today I don’t have to be in work until midday, so I took the opportunity to get out and about. I was at this place about 20-30 mins after sunrise. It will feel odd to go to work and not have to come home and take a photo! The negative is that I won’t get home until 7pm, so swings and roundabouts!
