This photo was taken on Friday, from the peak of Triglav (2864m), the highest peak of Julian Alps. It's located in Slovenia.
About our trek.
We left Krakow (Poland) at 1.30 on Thursday. We reached Aljazev Dom (1002m) in Vrata Valley in Slovenia about 12.30. Then we started our trek. About 18.30 we reached Triglavski Dom na Kredarici (2515) where we have slept. On Friday we woke up at 5.00, and after six we started to attack our goal summit of Triglav (2864m). We reached it after about 1,5 hours. Then we went down do the valley and started at 18.30 our way back to Poland. We reached Krakow about 3.30 on Saturday.
Incredible experience. Beautiful Julian Alps and national mountain of Slovenia - Triglav!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe, Italian: Alpi Giulie) are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretches from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park.
Triglav (German: Terglau, Italian: Tricorno) is with its elevation of 2,864 metres (9,396 ft) the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps. The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. It is the centerpiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia's only national park.

Hello Maciej,
An outstanding capture,beautiful landscape with excellent clarity and colours.

Hi Maciej,

The point of view is sending my eye to infinity which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colours of the mountains. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.


Once again, a fantastic array of contrasts in the rocky crags dominating the foreground, neighbour Maciej.
The other level of stunning contrasts is between the foreground and those ridges and ranges in the distant bluish haze.
Thanks and regards.

hallo Maciek

Hello Maciej,
Impressive play of light and shadow on these peaks of Julian Alps. Looks very rocky!
Well chosen point of view with the mountains behind appearing in fine blue colour.
