I had planned this visit to coincide with my family summer holiday to Croatia and Slovenia. Up at 4:00AM and then a quick 5 minute drive to the campsite car park just at the side of the lake. It was pitch black and I was on my own and walking towards the place I thought would give the best composition with the church in the centre of the mountains in the background.
I set up and took a couple of test shots and waited for the light, this was taken 5 or 6 minutes after sunrise. As soon as the image appeared on the viewfinder after the 181 second exposure, I knew I wouldn't get a better scene that morning so headed off back to the car. Yesterday I took delivery of a 1.2 meter wide print which is going on the wall at some point. The magical lake has won my heart.
