River Deep, Mountain High

By Jasper87  
My thanks to Tina Turner for this morning's title.

This is the Soča River or Isonzo, 138-kilometre long river that flows through western Slovenia and northeastern Italy. The river is marketed as "The Emerald Beauty" being one of the rare rivers in the world that retain such a colour throughout their length.

My eldest daughter's favourite image from the trip.

Iso100, f11, 1/13s, @24mm, Tripod and remote.
