Best photography tours – Julian Alps and Triglav National Park – part 1

There are a lot of spectecular places on the Planet Earth that are also great for landscape photography. But I doubt that there are many places on Earth that are so easily accessible, so remarkably beautiful and have so many opportunities to do amazing landscape photography as Julian Alps and Triglav National Park in Slovenia.

Julian Alps and Triglav National Park can be visited in all four seasons. The area is divided in two parts that have dramatically different characters. The south part of Julian Alps and Triglav National Park lies close to the Adriatic see and has more pleasant wheather but also more narrow valleys and wild mountains. The area is best known by emerald river Soča.

Cultural landscape of the area reflects the simplicity of lives that people live in remote parts of Julian Alps.

When you’ll get close to the mountains you’ll be protected by the face of the girl called “Ajdovska deklica”.

Go big or Go Home

When I started out in photography I was always impressed with photographers with big cameras and even bigger lenses.

Today, I am no longer impressed, but I do have more big “professional” equipment than I can carry.

With the maturity of  mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) systems it is easy to see why they are becoming more and more popular.

The size and weight differences are clearly obvious. And the image quality from cameras such as the NIkon 1 system are now so good that unless I really need the extra details from the larger sensor sized cameras, mirrorless ILCs are what I take with me.

For travels with the family, mirrorless ILCs are perfect for both stills as well as video.

“Go Big or Go Home” maybe great for pumping iron in the gym but if you want to have some fun with your photography, then it’s gotta be “Go small and be happy”. Your back and neck will certainly thank you for it.
