Back to Bled

By Jasper87  
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.

The dark sky sets off the colours of the buildings very well. In our family if I suggest a walk my children will say - please don't bring your camera SadSad

Nice one, Dave. Lovely composition, well balanced and you've got some good light there.
A location with lots of interest. More to follow, I trust?

Beautiful scenery and a wonderful vista in this image.
A camera club friend said she thought Slovenia was the most beautiful place she's ever seen.
It's the red roofs which really make the scene.
