Night-snow photo session on Velika Planina
The phone rings on early Saturday evening.
Humar on the other side: “Hey man, got time for night photo session?”
Me: “Sorry, not today. We can do it one evening during the week. ”
Humar: “Tuesday, Wednesday?”
Me: “We’ll be in touch.”
Saturday was, according to the weather forecast, the last idyllic cold and snowy day in the valley. That day, the session could be carried out anywhere in our area. But for next few days, weather forecast was rain.
So phone rang again on Wednesday afternoon. In the valley, the snow disappeared and we were not quite sure how high we will need to go, for conditions we needed.
So throw the dice: “Let’s go to Velika Planina!”
First from Kamnik to Domzale to pick up Klemen, Huth and Perse, after that back to the north, into the mountains. Higher we got, more we were convinced that this will not be just a 2 hour trip in a crowded Kangoo.
When we turned at “Kranski Rak” on snowy road to Velika Planina, we all get confident smile – that’s it. Some centimeters of fresh powder and cold weather is what we need. The next thing was the right location.
Unpacking on the last parking lot. In this moment, I noticed that the volume of photographic equipment was actually larger than the volume of one bicycle with equipment!
Since parking lot was still covered with fresh powder, we decided to start right here.
2 more examples of how, despite the long shutter speed with strong flashes you can catch rider in motion.
After 3 hours, we were shivering with cold, so we hit the road to the valley.
Well this is our part of the story. Now, the reason why we went to the Velika planina.
