Hi everybody! This week’s picture of the week is from Lake Bled in Slovenia. I really have taken a liking to Bled after visiting there twice, it’s a cozy village only a few hours from Salzburg (it’s just south of Slovenia’s border with Austria). I’m fairly active on instagram (@realandyluten) and the reason I chose this picture is it was re-grammed by someone with over a million followers! I figured that must mean it’s a pretty solid picture and that you all would enjoy it too. I owe you guys a few trip reports from where I’ve been lately, and those will start coming this week (including my experience in Bled). Until then, here’s Bled Island with the castle on a hilltop in the background! For the photographers: I shot this with my 70-200 lens at 105mm to take advantage of the telephoto compression (making the background seem closer to the foreground). f11, 1/10 second exposure, ISO 100. Edited in Lightroom and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.
Andy makes his way to Hallstatt, Austria. But not before another funny run-in with a random person in Slovenia.
Andy goes to Lake Bled in Slovenia. On his journey he manages to make a fool out of himself on multiple occasions and wonders whether he was meant to be a tourist or not. Featuring deer, Slovene policemen, and a lovely mountain lake.
I really loved Lake Bled in Slovenia. It’s beautiful castle, the picturesque island, everything about it is wonderful. Take a look in this week’s Picture of the Week!
Are you ready for another trip report from Andy? You’re not?! Well, it’s happening. I managed to encounter quite a few random and hilarious moments along the way during my trip to Europe over the weekend.
