Jamnik church is a classic scene in Slovenia, and one I’ve photographed often; as you’ve likely seen. Typically it’s photographed with the great mountain Storzic behind it, but I wanted it in the mist…

All my articles and videos are available free of charge. My guide to photography is also available as a free ebook. However, it does take time to put together, and money to travel to locations. So if you enjoy my work and feel so inclined, please consider buying me a coffee so I can keep creating for you.
