The moon and the stars above are perhaps not as popular as the classic landscapes with lots of greens and a blue sky, but they make wonderful subjects in Bohinj where the night skies are often crystal clear.

The techniques required are surprisingly simple and you need only one or two lenses to capture a whole array of shots that have a moon or stars in the composition.

Whether your interest is in the full moon, 1/4 moon, moonrise, moon-set or star trails we would be delighted to take you to our favorite locations.
