One more photo of this amazingly great gorge. For all you people who haven't seen the other five photos I've posted on this gorge, hereby some additional information.

I took this picture early in the morning when this beautiful gorge still had a lot of mountain dew.

The Vintgar Soteska Gorge is 1,6 Km long and the river Radovna is running through it. This gorge is located 4 km noth-west of the well know town Bled. The gorge was accidentally discovered by Jakob Žumer, the Major of Gorje, and the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer in February 1891.

I also posted two photos of this gorge at Treklens:

This is a lovely shot in a natural environment Niek. The light and mist has given this a peaceful atmosphere. Thanks. :-)

Hi Niek,
Very fine, soft landscape. Fascinating lightfall and a nice movement of the water. Modest colours make this scenery complete.
Well done,
Regards, Ruud

Hi Niek,
Nice shot, very atmospheric with the early morning mist, I can almost smell the air. Very calm scene, nice image.

Hi Niek,
A beautiful image, where you capture the mood very well!
A fine composition, I like the reflection of the sunlight in the water... The river takes me further into the image, well done!

Hi Niek,
A classic beauty. Early morning mist on the water looks great. I looked at the other shots of this gorge, and they all look excellent!

The thumbnail really caught my attention, and deservedly so... I love the mood greated by the dew in the early morning. It is very peaceful and calming with a hint of mystery becuase you can't see round the bend.

Well seen and TFS

Hi Niek,
there's a beautiful and a little mystic atmosphere here. I love the light-reflection in the water, a wonderful place, thanks

This is really nice, Niek. I like it a lot. Did you try it with a darker frame. I tried it and it seems that all attention then goes to the white swirling water. It is hard to explain and maybe it is just the way I see things. My eyes see the two whites together and jump from white water to white frame and back etc. With a darker frame my eyes went to the white water first and then down to the light fog in the distance. It's a beautiful picture!

Hi Niek,
A beautiful composed picture, the mist and the light reflecting of the water sets a beautiful tranquil mood.

I feel the smog in the mid-distance seems to handicap this picture which could have looked better with a deep depth of view down the gorge.

I love the mist in the background it gives it an enchanted feeling in this beautiful capture. :)

Niek, just looking through your page and this one jumps out at me. What a super composition, the mist gives such a great atmosphere to the already attractive gorge. Colours and shine all look great. TFS

i like the atmosphere here..the mistiness and the trees intruding and holding the river captive.
foreground is good giving the indication the river is moving with force
and just an indication of the sunny day to follow.
