This photo was taken on Friday, during our trek to Triglav, the highest peak of Julian Alps. It's located in Slovenia.
About our trek.
We left Krakow (Poland) at 1.30 on Thursday. We reached Aljazev Dom (1002m) in Vrata Valley in Slovenia about 12.30. Then we started our trek. About 18.30 we reached Triglavski Dom na Kredarici (2515) where we have slept. On Friday we woke up at 5.00, and after six we started to attack our goal summit of Triglav (2864m). We reached it after about 1,5 hours. Then we went down do the valley and started at 18.30 our way back to Poland. We reached Krakow about 3.30 on Saturday.
Incredible experience. Beautiful Julian Alps and national mountain of Slovenia - Triglav!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe, Italian: Alpi Giulie) are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretches from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park.
Triglav (German: Terglau, Italian: Tricorno) is with its elevation of 2,864 metres (9,396 ft) the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps. The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. It is the centerpiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia's only national park.

Hello Maciek,
Nice image,lovely colours and composition.

I like the colour tones in the sky in this early morning picture of mountains, Maciej.
The dark silhouette of the mountain in the foreground creates a lovely contrast.

Hello Maciej,
What a beautiful sunrise you have captured in this scene. The silhouetted mountain in the foreground along with those in the background helps to give depth to the image. Love the soft lighting the early mornings hours brought, and the exposure gives it a magical touch.

Hello Maciej,
I missed some photos of you.....What a nice image and interesting too.....But this one is superb....The composition, the light and exposure are very good. Fantastic razor sharp details. Fascinating contrast against the background.
Thanks for sharing!
