It's all about travels and photography.

Karst in Fall

Fall this year arrived late. And because of that it was only for a short time that beautiful hues coloured foliage in nature. It was a beautiful Sunday and with friends, fellow photographers we visited Karst region, close to the coast of Slovenia. We left our cars near Socerga village and went for a hike to Kraski rob (Karst Ridge). A perfect timing for the colours! The superstar among bushes is definitely a Smoke Tree (or Sumach) with its reddish colour in different hues.


A view from the top to the Croatian side of the border.

Silly photographers – everything for a good photo opp… :-)

Limestone ridge.


A natural bridge is always fun to climb!

Red Smoke tree bushes from distance.

And from close…


And even closer…

The Karst ridge is at its highest at Socerga, close to Croatian border crossing into Istria. (Note my girlfriend standing at the bottom of it)

Best time to visit this stunningly beautiful place is in the afternoon when there is a gentle warm sunlight.

Yes, Neja is biologist – obviously enough:)

    Jan, levo od aparata sem držal fleš (SB-800), sprožil sem ga pa z onboard flešom v commander mode. Nikonov CLS sistem… Sicer je malce premočan blisk, pa vseeno kul – za domačo uporabo:)

    Jan, sem prepričan, da na Canonu tudi deluje. Vsaj osnove kot je daljinsko proženje… slave/master varianta…

    Tole najdemo v Sloveniji, presenečen, res. Bo treba spomladi malo na primorske konce. Stena je res nekaj posebnega.

    Res lepe fotografije, barve so res jesenske. Canon pa nažalost nima takšnega proženja flashou kot nikon in se občasno tudi meni po tem kolca. Edino canon eos 7d ima podoben princip proženja. Vsi ostali moramo pa kupovati razne dalinske prožilce.
