This photo was taken on Friday, on the ridge going to 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 Maciek,
Were you not very, very tired after such an experience?
Beautiful photo in great clarity and good sharpness. Impressive peak.

Hi Maciej,

The tight frame is putting the mountain in evidence. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colours of the mountain. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.


Excellent contrast here dear Maciej! Razor details and sharp. Very well done.


Hello Maciek,
Tonight I was watching 'Man vs Wild' where Bear Grylls was crossing a canyon and thinking how you cross such hurdle too.And now another spectacular mountain standing infront of us as if she will not allow us to see what is behind her.Nice details and colour.At least a patch of snow worked as composition.I think for it it is looking splendid.
Thanks for sharing your experience,
Kind regards,

Hello Maciej
Excellent capture,
good PoV make this magnificent.
best wishes.

An awe inspiring dome there standing forlorn against the deep blue sky, Maciej.
Wonderful contrasts again with the patch of snow adding a great deal of authenticity to the forbidding location.

Hi Maciek,
It was a wonderful trip for sure. And the photo is great, too, with the dry rocks and the fantastic blue tone of the sky in contrast. Nice PoV and composition. Congratulations.
Best regards, László
