Your country has the most beautiful scenery and you capture it so well. This is like something out of a fairy tale about a village floating in the air above a village firmly attached to the earth.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at the small village called Gorje. There is a hill just above the village that offers great views towards the east.
Time
Misty morning are very often in December in my country. I wanted to catch this beautiful scene with the light penetrating the fog and with both churches forming some sort of a line.
Lighting
The lighting was spectacular as can be seen from the image. Fog often occurs on cold days in the flatland near Bled, covering only the surface. When the sun rises, the fog starts moving and lifting, creating beautiful scenery.
Equipment
This was hand held and I used my Nikon D800 with 28-120mm Nikkor lens.
Inspiration
I am driving around this area very often and I noticed how great the churches are positioned. I scouted the viewpoint above Gorje village one day before. I was hoping there would be just the right amount of fog the next morning. I got lucky and the product is this amazing image.
Editing
I did my usual post processing and in this case I tried to really bring out the curves and shadows in the fog to make the image as 3 dimensional as possible.
In my camera bag
I usually carry Nikon D800 and two lenses. The first one is 28-300mm and allows me to shoot most of the scenes. I also have wide lens from Nikkor (14-24mm), which I use for wide panoramas or night shots. Besides that I have a set of ND filters and a polarizing filter.
Feedback
The countryside around Lake Bled is a big flatland surrounded with big mountains. This causes fog almost every morning in the cold months of November and December. The chances of getting a foggy morning around this time are high. The problem is that for a shot like that the amount of fog needs to be just perfect. Usually the fog is higher so the village would be invisible from this certain viewpoint. So in the end (as is true for many photographs) you also need a bit of luck.
