This was the very last shot of Lake Bled I've taken from my photo-trek around those parts with Anze Vishnar. Sky was pretty much black to the naked eye when this picture was taken but camera's sensitive sensor saw far more than I did...and that is a good thing.
Apart from this picture, the highlight of that evening were the three dodgy looking dudes that emerged from the forest at night, right where I stood with the camera and a whole lot of gear. There wasn't any light sourc
e in that area so my instinct was that these guys were looking for trouble. They surrounded us and one of them asked in English: 'You also looking for it?', he asks. I looked to the left and right and asked "what?" Most confused looking one asks - "Ummm, treasure?". Definitely not the conversation I was expecting.
Turns out, these guys came all the way from Germany, looking for a hidden treasure around Lake Bled because this area was marked on the 'Treasure Hunters' website. You have to admire their dedication. When they realized we weren't chasing the same prize, they left and disappeared into the darkness.
