Photo history: The Emerald Jewel

In 2008 I visited Slovenia. I was in the West (Triglav National Park, Julian Alps and the Emerald Route) the South (Karst caves) and two days in the capital, Ljubljana.

What I liked the most was the West: the landscapes, the color of the water at the rivers… I strongly recommend you to visit that area if you love Landscape Photography (or just landscapes).

We were reaching the end of the “Emerald Route” when we found this true “jewel” thanks to Mr. Kolman, our landlord (a really nice man) who recommended us to visit it. The guide we were carrying only mentioned it exists. We would have skip it if he did not recommended it to us.

10 mm, f18, 30sec., ISO 100, polarizer and tripod.

It is the “Slap Kozjak” (Kozjak Waterfall).

The 15 meter high waterfall impresses not for its height but for its beauty. The water has been carving the stone creating a semi-sphere cavity, broken at the top from where the water falls.

The humidity is so high and the dark stones (nearly black) that surround this beauty are covered by a thin green coverage with the water color to match.

I call it “the Emerald Jewel”, because for me, it is a small jewel that saturated my retina of an emerald green, that green that I like so much, that I always keep in my mind and that it gives me a tranquility sensation when I see it again.

Green is one of my favorite colors.  I believe that this is the reason why I specially love this photo and the one of the previous post.

Do you have any color you specially love? Which one?

First of all I would like to thank you for accessing my website. I hope you feel comfortable here and that you come back again to spend some time here from time to time.

The main objective of this website is to share with you (relatives, friends, unknow people…) my photographs, without forcing anyone to see them. All we know how boring can be a long show of photos taken by a friend or a relative…

This website will allow you to look at them as many times as you want, for the time you want…

I have prepared 3 galleries to start. They contain some photos from my first steps in the nature and travel photography:

–       Iceland (2007)

–       Slovenia (2008)

–       Donna Nook (2008 & 2009).

I wish you like them,

Best regards,
