Capturing Jamnik Church in the mist
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; like here:
However, like the Church of Saint Thomas, it’s also known for it’s moody, misty scenes. But unlike Saint Thomas church, catching it in the mist is not so easy.
Saint Thomas Church sits in a valley where a river runs through so the chances of mist developing in that valley are quite high. Jamnik, however, sits on an exposed hill on the Jelovica Plateau, and therefore the conditions are different.
So despite having journeyed there many times, I had never managed to catch it in the mist, until now. Okay so it wasn’t exactly a lot of mist, and still not quite the ground-breaking mist I had hoped for, but it produced some nice moody images at dawn nevertheless.
