From the Beach at the End of the Forest Track Upstream and Back


31258. It was one of the last truly hot days of the summer, plesantly warm even in the gorge of Iška. So everybody enjoyed. In the picture: upstream view just north of the main beach.



31259. Downstream view of the main beach and its pool



31260. Smoke bush, Cotinus coggygria, ruj in Slovenian, blossoms in the rich undergrowth, view south, towards the sun



31262. View of the clouds above the gorge, against the light



31263. A study of water in motion - Iščica brook cascade, close view, 1/250 sec. exposure time. Water drops are not quite visible, but it nevertheless gives an impression of a glassy fluid.



31264. The same scene, 1/30 sec. exposure time. The water is slightly blurred.



31265. 1/15 sec. exposure time. Water swirl center right already has a van Gogh look.



31266. 1/5 sec. exposure time. As cave photographers would say: Water has a beard.



31267. A visitor is taking a cell phone photo - apparently of the scenery, but his action was prompted by the discovery of the figure center left.



31269. Upstream view of the gorge with a rock cone in the background. Such views give Iški Vintgar its special charm.



31278. A party on the little island



31277. Meditation, un peu triste, on a beach, in the diminishing patch of the late afternoon sun
