Grad being Slovenian for castle and Raca for duck
Lake Bled is such a beautiful part of Slovenia. Easily our favourite part of the holiday.
Hand held 1/125sec, f13 on Iso200 @50mm.
Won't get too many ice-cream vans up there I reckon. Or Jehovah's Witnesses.
Nice one Dave.
I'd love to go to Slovenia. The Eastern Bloc countries have some of the most interesting places. This is gorgeous and I can imagine sitting just where the girl is and wondering how to get up to the castle and what it'd be like to live there.
Like the title, the explanation even more so! Beautiful light and tone, this lends an air of such tranquility. The fact that the ducks don't appear to be at all fazed by the human presence (whose figure itself adds wonderful scale) is adds to the overall impression of peace. Lovely stuff.
The castle and its situation remind me of the Rhineland, but more precipitous.
A gorgeous scene; the autumn colours reflected in the lake are especially attractive.
What a stunning setting for a castle, Dave, is it inhabited? A very well composed image. Carol
Thats a big wow from me, stunning!
Superb setting for great composition. Peter.
A beautiful scene and the red in the castle roof and the girls shirt gives the image such balance. - gary
Nicely composed and good details and colours Dave

A beautiful and eye catching image Dave, that Castle and it's mount are stunning!

Excellent use of the vertical format to get all the interest in the frame.
Excellent scene Dave.
A well composed shot Dave
I expect they must have a great view from that castle
The lady looking in to the scene is excellent for composition and reflections exquisite Dave.

Such beauty Dave, a stunning capture
A beautiful and well composed scene Dave
Lovely shot of the castle so high above Lake Bled! I would agree with you that this area of Slovenia is so beautiful! Fantastic place to visit and a fantastic photograph too!
Lovely depth f13.0 in this tranquil spot where I would just love to try a bit fishing. Great capture. Well done Dave.
Cracking image, Dave. Perfectly composed with lovely colurs too.
A splendid scenic view Dave.
Although I doubt their Pizza delivery man will agree with that one !!
A fine, well composed image of this beautiful location, Dave!
Beautifully composed image. It's like seeing through her eyes. Such a peaceful place, even the ducks are at peace. I wonder what year that castle was built? An excellent image Dave.
Excellent Dave love the format..........
Beautiful composition with great light and colours!
This looks a lovely scenic place. Peaceful and beautiful.
Wonderful light and autumn colours, Dave.
Smashing comp' Dave, a lovely scene caught here. Perfect Holiday subject matter.
All that and a language lesson too!
I couldn't think of a better place to capture such a great image Dave...
I have seen many images from Lake Bled and it looks to be a most photogenic part as your fine capture today shows, Dave.
What a spot to built a castle.
Very nicely composed image with excellent Autumn colour, also reflected in the water.
Great comp and detail.
A brilliant capture, Dave.
Such a beautiful setting! You've taken a super picture of it!
Lovely composition Dave, everything in proportion , nicely taken and presented.
Now those folks have a view! Beautiful scene - lovely spot to sit I imagine.
(Forgot to mention I very much like your new SP/avitar)
Wonderful composition. The perched castle is magical, with the girl giving the perfect scales.. Great
Such a fantastic composition, and the light and reflections on the water are as magical as the castle.
SUPERB compo and clarity, terrific image, Dave. I love it!
I've been looking forward to these images as a camera club member with avery good eye for photogrpahy
sad Slovenia was one of the most beautiful countries she's seen.
this image as a starte proves the point.
I love your inclusion of the girl on the pier.
A nice scene.
I love this image, Dave. Nicely composed and observed.
It takes effort to get to the castle
A wonderful composition, Dave, luv the Autumn colours and reflections.
A first class composition.
A very well composed image
As my mum would have said, 'they are up a depth' living up there...almost the Lost World. Fantastic scale provided by the fg detail, Dave. Looks like a tourist brochure image, so clear and sharp.
Probably one of the best composed images I have seen in a long time. And that castle..........amazing!
Such beautiful light and composition, Dave. I'm particularly drawn to the gorgeous foliage in the middle.
Wonderful to see this beautiful image !
Great capture, Dave - I bet they don't get many door to door salesmen up there! Certainly looks a super location
Brilliant shot Dave... Great composition
A superb composition beautifully captured Dave,
Beautiful colours and lovely composition Dave.
Magical shot... What a place to put a castle! Amazing...
Gorgeous light and colour and spectacular scenery .....Phil
Looks to have been a popular one Dave! Sorry I missed it and only just catching up now; a busy weekend of work meant little time for the fun stuff! Great control of the light here, I can still see the patchy effect on the far woodland but nothing is too dull in the foreground. There's some good human and feathered FG interest with the castle providing a balancing FP and all so well positioned within the frame.
So peaceful. Lovely shot Dave!
Great composition with the jetty providing a nice lead in.
