Bovec is one of the 210 municipalities of Slovenia. It is situated located close to border with Italy, 136 km from the capital Ljubljana, at an altitude of 434 m. Bovec has been traditionally part of the Goriška region, but nowadays only a minority of locals share this regional identity, preferring to identify with the wider region of the Slovenian Littoral.A part of the Bovec municipality is located within the Triglav National Park, but not Bovec itself.Two of the most important mountain passes in the Julian Alps are located in the Bovec municipality: the Predil Pass on the border between Slovenia and Italy, and the Vršič Pass, which connects the Soča Valley to the neighbouring Slovenian region of Upper Carniola. The Učja (Uccea) connects Bovec with the Resia Valley in Italy.

Bella questa immagine con il piccolo villaggio che si intravede fra gli alberi con dietro quella splendida cornice montuosa! Molto bello anche il cielo grigio. Bella la composizione con in primo piano la fila di alberi ed il prato giallo e verde.

Nice colours and contrast in this shot where the yellow layers of autumn stand out well against the snowy peaks in the background. Good depth.
