[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Above the surface of Bled Lake rises the only real island in Slovenia. In a glacier hollow there is what remains of an Ice Age limestone moraine covered with trees. The island probably had a special meaning already in prehistoric times . One can come to the island by a special boat with a roof, called a pletna. This boat, conducted by one rower with two oars, is known only in Bled.

On the island is the Church of the Assumption . The church dates from the 17th century, but frescoes and a statue of the Virgin Mary date from the Gothic church that existed prior to its most recent reincarnation. The church also features a belltower and outbuildings for guests and church administrator.

Wonderful andvery peaceful picture Tsilla,the rather hazy atmosphere fits perfectly well.


Hi Tsilla,

Wow, what a great mood you have captured here!
The suspended cloud in the air and the beautiful churchg on this soo island, give this picture a great look. Slightly offcentered position of the church makes the picture even more effective. The colors are perfect and the sharpness and POV are very well chosen.

Have a nice weekend, my friend!

best regards,

Very moody shot Tsilla - great atmosphere with the soft focus around the main subject! I think the black frame is a little 'heavy' with this scene - although racking my brains I have no idea what I would do for a frame!!!!!

Hi Tsilla,
A very soft presentation of this island in Lake Bled, Slovenia.
A very nice reflection in the dead calm clean water of the Lake.
Beautiful colors of the Church of the Assumption.
A nice boat ride called the 'Pletna' with a single oarsman will take on the island which is in the middle of the Lake.
Great shot with this foggy atmosphere - a dreamlike landscape!
Best regards,

Francis Xavier

Nice atmospheric shot with the mist and reflections Is it early morning ?It looks very peaceful TFS

Hello Tsilla,

I meant to c/c on this a few days ago but I was distracted. First I am glad to see the links you provided. This is exquisite and romantic, you skillfully captured this, the rising mist is difficult to meter and you did well in doing so. My best regards.


Hi Tsilla,
I love your presentation.
reflections are very impressive.
