Discovering Beauty: A Guide to Hiking & Capturing the Alpine Choughs on Viševnik Mountain, Slovenia
So here’s the deal, I’m a huge adventure junkie and love bringing my camera gear with me on hikes. One of my go-to spots is a hike to Viševnik in Slovenia. This peak is a whooping 2050 meters high and is located in the Julian Alps. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. The views from the top are <3, and it’s not too difficult of a hike. All you need is good vibes and some good weather.
Whenever I’m up on Viševnik, I love watching the birds. They’re everywhere, especially the alpine choughs. Recently, I took a few shots and edited them in Lightroom with my custom preset. The photos were taken with my trusty Sony A7 III and my go-to lens, the TAMRON 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD. I hope you like them!
Alpine Choughs are a species of bird that are commonly found on Viševnik and other high peak ranges in Europe. These birds are known for their striking black plumage, distinctive curved beaks, and their acrobatic aerial displays. They are social birds and often form large flocks, making them a popular subject for birdwatchers and photographers.
These birds are not only beautiful to look at but also play a crucial role in the ecosystem, helping to maintain a healthy balance of plants and insects on the peak. Watching these birds soar through the air and interacting with each other is truly a breathtaking sight.
Whether you’re an avid birdwatcher or just love nature photography, the alpine Choughs of Viševnik are a must-see. So, pack your camera gear and hit the trails, because you never know what amazing moments you might capture.
If you’re ever in the area and want to join me on a photo shoot of these birds, just hit me up. Let’s make it happen!
That’s all from me for now. Let me know if you’ve got any new shots you want to share, and if you’ve got any suggestions for my next post, I’d love to hear them!
See you around 🙂
