The weather forecast was very bad for our first three days at the Triglav NP in Slovenia. I was a bit sceptical if we were going to get any decent shots – man, was I wrong. Although we spent most of the days in the rain, the conditions were awesome. Fog teamed up with the rain and we had great soft light and tones everywhere. While one of us was handling the camera the other helped by holding the umbrella to keep everything a little less wet.

On the third day we drove from Bohinj to Bovec and went over a pass. While the fog was gone in the valley, it was really thick up in the mountains. Driving along the forests I got more and more exited and so I had to stop and we went out for some scouting. It was an unexpected and thrilling time, crawling through the foggy forest on the search for some order in the chaos. Not an easy task, but I came home with two shots I like a lot – this is one of them.

This is great example for where my Web Sharpener script works well - getting out the fine details in the subtle textures. If you don't know about the script, check it out. It's free and for Photoshop CS3 and above.
