Sunrise over Lake Bled from Ojstrica

Through Spring, Summer and Autumn the sun rises over the mountains behind Bled Lake, and from the viewpoint of Ojstrica it makes for a great photo, weather permitting, Here's the story behind the photo.

The magic moment.

At the icon view of the church of Saint Thomas in Slovenia, I headed out one summer morning after the weather forecast showed the promise of a misty scene.

Lake Bled from Ojstrica

The story behind the shot. Making a success out of failure. The intention on this morning was to capture the sun rising over the mountains behind the island church of the assumption of Mary on Lake Bled, from the classic viewpoint of Ojstrica. It was likely my last chance, because soon the sun would move too far south for the autumn and winter.
