This photo was taken on Saturday during our trek through Slovakian High Tatras. This is Velicka Dolina (valley) known as Wielicki Ogrod (Velicki Garden). You aslo can see Kwietnicowy Staw (lake). Thanks for Michal (MMG) for informations!!
Look at these flowers! On the left you can see a slope of Gerlach (2655m) - the highest peak in whole Tatras. All this area is called Velicka Garden. And this small lake is Kwietnicovy Stav. (again many thanks to Michal MMG for a lot of these information).
We started our trek from Tatranska Polianka, went throung Sliezky dom (1670m), Polsky Hreben (Polski Grzebien 2200m), Vychodna Vysoka (2429m), again Polsky Hreben, and throung hole Bielovodska dolina (valley) to Lysa Polana. It was 23,5 kilometers trek (1,5 kilometers of high), which took us about 8-9 hours.
Weather was this time good. So I could seen really beautiful mountains views.
Thanks for visiting,

Hello Maciek,
A marvellous capture of this valley surrounded by bare mountain ridges.
The sharpness and lighting are top and I like the composition that shows the fresh green and floral growth in the FG. The alpine flora and fauna must be great there.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Maciej.
Beautiful pictures of beautiful landscapes. Very much I like this your composition. Very interesting foreground with water and the road leads the eyes into the picture. The majestic mountains in the background and an amazing blue sky - wonderful. Thank you for sharing. Have a nice evening.
Best regards

Hallo Maciek
This is a wonderful scenery. I just love the wide open space, and I can almost inhale the fresh air. It must have been an awesome sight to see this in real life. How privileged you where, and how lovely would it have been to put my feet in that pond of water. This is a delightful image that calms the whole being just by looking at it. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

wonderful place, fine photo performance!
regards Nasos

Hi Maciej,

The valley us sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is sjhowing the details and colors of the mountains. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


Konkretniej jest to Wielicki Ogród, a to jeziorko - Kwietnicowy Staw.
Ten krajobraz jest wyjątkowy, nigdzie wcześniej takiego nie widziałem. Nie wiem jak wyszło zdjęcie Wielickiego Stawu i Wielickiej Siklawy, ale myślę że byłby warty pokazania.
