Ukanc ("At The End"), Gorenjska Slovenia

So we're back from another trip to Slovenia. It's a country I'd recommend unreservedly. If you haven't been - go! Especially from the UK with cheap flight connections it's the simplest thing on Earth to get there.

 

The one issue on this trip was Europcar. Despite having their insurance, we were charged €451 for a scratch smaller than a 1 Euro coin. Additionally, a week after emailing their customer services team I am yet to hear anything from them. I will keep you updated through further posts, but for the moment would advise against their service in the strongest terms possible based upon the attitude and inflexibility they have shown.

 

I shot 32Gb in a week, mostly at night. This one is taken in the same location as this light painting which I shot last summer. With the changing seasons it's interesting to note the different character of these places.

 

In this one I left the light to run over, but kept the shadows dark. I'm really pleased with the unsettling mood it creates, even if the result is perhaps a little heavy on the shadow. It's a three shot vertorama shot using the TS-E 24mm's shift function for seamless panoramas - something I didn't think I would use, but which is in practice dangerously addictive.

 

Ukanc (pronounced "Ukans") is at the end of the incredible Bohinj Lake meanes "at the end" and it lives up to the name; you really feel like you've stepped off the grid.
