The walk round Lake Bled in Slovenia is about 6km (3 3/4 miles approx) and is perfect perfect for so many different perspectives on the castle and cathedral (and island church, not in this shot). The guide book says to leave about 60-90 minutes for the walk. Mmmm... more like 4-5hrs or so with a camera Smile.

Iso 200, 1/125s, f13, @58mm, handheld, no filters.
