Lake Bohinj covering 318 hectares , is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. It is located within the Bohinj Valley of the Julian Alps, in the northwestern Upper Carniola region, and part of Triglav National Park.
Lake Bohinj is 4.2 km long and 1 km at its maximum width. It is a glacial lake dammed by a moraine.

The largest of the streams that flow into the lake, the Savica ('little Sava'),is fed from Črno jezero (Black Lake), the largest lake in the Triglav Lakes Valley. The outflow at the eastern end is the Jezernica creek which merges with the Mostnica to form the Sava Bohinjka, which in turn becomes the larger Sava River at the confluence with the Sava Dolinka. As found out already by Belsazar Hacquet in the 18th century, much more water leaves Lake Bohinj than enters it, which is explained with subterranean sources of water.......

a lovely view into the misty landscape with captivating mysterious atmosphere. Your elevated point of view gave you a superb foreground with much interest, contrasting textures and a delightful curve. You've made amazing use of the dim light and pale colours to create a mistifying impression. Congratulations and thank you!
Happy new year and all the best!

What a fantastic mood this place has, the mist makes it seem so serene and calm, and yet spooky at the same time. Beautiful soft colours and light, and a real bonus to be able to see through the water to the bottom of the lake too, enhancing that feeling of calm.
All the best
