A glorious fall day was perfect for a day trip. We drove over Vršič Pass to the town of Bovec and on our way back made a detour and drove on the highest road in Slovenia, to the Mangart Pass. Everywhere the larches were golden and the sky streaked with white clouds. A great day for a road trip indeed!
October was so warm and nice that it would be sin not to take advantage of it and climb some mountains. Mt. Debela peč is a peak in the Julian Alps that offers great views all around, especially on Mt. Triglav, plus its slopes are covered with larches, which are wonderfully golden at this time of year. The weather that day was a bit quirky - it changed from sunny to ominously cloudy and back three times!
Stara Baška is a small village with a campground where I spend quite a few weekends camping every summer. In mid-October it was already quite windy and chilly, and it looked rather odd when the beach was deserted in the middle of a sunny day. But the fishermen persisted in the evenings.
I often take short trips, just an hour or two, to the nearby places. This one was to a small lake in Preddvor, a village at the foot of the Alps. The foliage is already starting to turn yellow and it won't be long until it is orange and red. While shooting, I had some fun observing the resident ducks and other birds.
