Pre-Dawn over Lake Bled by GMCPhotographics Pre-Dawn over Lake Bled by GMCPhotographics
Featured by
:iconalone-maggie: Gosia Photos with a soul! XIX


This was taken very early at Lake Bled in Slovenia.
If anyone wants to get married here....I'll shoot it for free!
This is a timed exposure on a tripod with no filters.
I first visited this place before the civil war and when I got the first chance to return, it was an offer that i couldn't refuse.
The air is still and peacefull, the water is calm and untroubled. There's a cold snap to the place because it's located between the Italian and Austrian Alps.
The only way to get to the church is by rowing boat and it takes about 15 mins to get across.
During the day, the ligting is flat an uneventfull, but at sunrise or sunset, it's truely magical...the stuff of fairytales!

Please view as a full size image, it's really worth it!

Model: Canon EOS 5D, ef 85mm f1.2 II L
Iso 200, 13/10 sec @ f11

Thanks,
It's a stunning place, although I suspect that the locals are a little bored of it and see it as a cliche.
I've been here three times so far and this is still one of my favorite photographs of it. I'm returning there is autumn

Lucky you ..:) How could people see it as a cliche! It looks like coming from a fairytale, the view is so wonderful. And you definitely knew how to capture the magical atmosphere. Take care

This image has a completely different feel than your other one of Lake Bled. Where that one was ethereal, this one is more fantasy. They both speak to me though. Thanks for sharing your vision of a part of the world few of us will see.

Thanks, I've googled it and had a quick looksee on Google maps. I might be popping to Croatia next year, so maybe I'll get a chance to photograph it.
