Why was this winter in Slovenia amazing?
Simple, because it was the first winter, after some warm ones, with snow. And that makes Slovenian landscape magical. I was hoping this year that we will get some snow, so it would be nice to get the classical Slovenian spots with the background of the snow-capped mountains and also in different colour as normal. In one of my favourite places in Slovenia, Bled, at beginning of the January, it didn't look like it will be a good winter.
There was some snow in the Alps, but not in the lower parts of the country. But Bled is always cool. No matter what kind of weather you have, the nearby hills offer lots of possibilities of different compositions, views and light. You just need to pick the right one.
But after that, the weather went other way and there were several snow falls in the short period, which provided quite a lot of snow in whole Slovenia and open the possibilities to get the Slovenian classics in the winter edition.
One of the classics is definitely the St.Primus church on Jamnik. This church became famous with the shot of Steve McCurry in the 90ies, when he made a reportage for National Geographic about Yugoslavia and took a controversial shot of the church with the rising full moon in the background, which was later accused as fake.
