Discovering the Hidden Gem of Slovenia: Zelenci

How are you? As usual, I wanted to ask if you have taken any new photos lately? If you have, please post the link to it in the comments below so that others can see it too.

Capturing the Beauty of Zelenci: A Winter Photo Story from Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

I was going through my computer and found this winter photo from Zelenci near Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. This spring is truly a gem of nature and looks beautiful in all seasons. It is located along the main road between Kranjska Gora and Planica, so I almost always stop by whenever I’m passing through. This happens a lot since I’m a regular visitor to these places. I always have my Sony A7 III camera with me, and when the lighting is right, I take a picture or two.

I took this picture a few years ago when I still had my old Canon EOS 77D. This is my favorite picture of Zelenci that I have taken.

What settings did I use?

  • Camera: Canon EOS 77D
  • Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
  • ISO: 100
  • F-stop: f/7.1
  • Exposure time: 1/125 sec.
  • Focal length: 18 mm

And the resulting image is now my new desktop background. Of course, you can also use it as your background. I uploaded the image to a server, so you can download it in high resolution at 2560x1440px and set it as your wallpaper.
