Under a Bled Red Sky

Fresh out of camera, this was taken this morning at sunrise on Lake Bled, Slovenia. 

I just arrived in Slovenia yesterday and this is the first sunrise I experienced here! I was not expecting to post an image so quickly from this trip…but then this happened.

This is the Church of the Assumption and is the most recognizable symbol of the lake. It sits on the only real island in Slovenia formed from an Ice Age glacier hollow. Apparently archaeologists have discovered traces of prehistoric settlements on the island along with graves from the 9th century. The current church that you see here dates from the 17th century.

So far I have been more than impressed with the beauty around Bled. I am here for another day exploring the area and then heading back to Munich, with a stop in Hallstatt along the way. If the weather cooperates, I hope to have more images to share from this trip in the upcoming weeks.

Sorry for the delay in getting this post out, but I have been struggling with some connectivity issues while on the road. Fortunately, the sky in Slovenia has cooperated much better than the internet!
