It's all about travels and photography.

Hiking the Kosuta ridge

A day after I graduated (finally) I went hiking to Karavanke Alps in Gorenjska region. The weather was superb and I decided to go to Kosuta mountain range. Starting point was Kofce pasture hut and the first goal was Veliki Vrh peak. From there I walked the range to the East and enjoyed vistas of Slovenian and Austrian Alps.

The Kosuta range. On the left (North) there is Austria, on the right – Slovenia. The entire range (about 10-11km) represents the border between these two countries.

Alpine flowers. A kind of Carnation, I guess.

Pure joy 1.

Pure joy 2.

Pure joy 3.

Cheeky jackdaw. These funny birds were flying along the ridge in huge flocks. They are quite tame and some of them came very close to me. In exchange for some breadcrumbs of course.

Last sun rays on the ridge. The colours changed dramatically and the wind started to blow strongly.

It was damn cold, but I waited a bit longer. To get this photo…

    Hahaha, what a coincidence! I was just here on Sunday. :)))
    It’s a great hike, isn’t it? Kudos for waiting for the sunset, the colors are really fantastic.

    Hudičevo se ti je splačalo počakat, saj sta zadnja dva posnetka prav hudo fajn.Predvsem pa vsi občutki, ki jih takšni trenutki prinašajo le tistemu, ki je takrat tam…

    ps. Na zadnji le malce popravi magenta štih, ki je malo ušel kontroli.

    @Ana: I am waiting for your photos;)

    @Jure: Hvala! Zadnja je sicer namenoma taka – v PS dodan viola filter, da je malce drugačna. Ni pa čisto realno:)

    You should plan to try hiking in Australia – in Victorian alps or in NSW along the Great North Walk. Enjoy.
