[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image is another shot of Črno jezero (Black Lake), which is one of the "7 Lakes of Mt Triglav", the highest mountain in Slovenia and our national symbol, e.g. featured on the Slovenian flag.

Each of the lakes bears its own name that reflects its characteristics. When waters are high, Dvojno jezero (the Double Lake) becomes a single one and ss the spruce and pine tree forests around it cast dark shadows over the clear waters, it is called Črno jezero (the Black Lake). The waters are abundant with small fish and newts. And are the perfect remedy for tired feet.

The "7 Lakes" are positioned at altitudes ranging from 1319 and 2002 metres.

I actually don't particularly care for this photo as I really wanted one with a lower-based POV, but leaning down off a rock to get this one was hard enough. As my colleague happens to love the picture, decided to post here and see what there rest of you think.

Hello Alenka! Nice landscape. Nice colors. Beautiful photo. Cheers!

Hi Alenka,
Great shades of green seen not only in the trees, but in the clear waters of the lake also..
Exposed well with good detail.
Simple but effective composition, perhaps a few clouds in the sky would spark it up a bit :)
Well done & have nice weekend!

Hello Alenka,
Very beautiful capture of this scenery. I like the vertical view and the depth of focus is pretty good. The colours are lovely and I like the grasses in the foreground and the ripples in the clear water. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
