Lake Bled, Sort of

Lake Bled #1

Lake Bled #1

Lake Bled is a beautiful mountain town in Slovenia.  There are some cheap hostels here but I opted for a 4 star hotel with a lake view room.  When near water I look for reflections and optical distortions, then morph these into colorful abstract images.  Just to prove I was there, two sort of typical photos of the lake and surrounding mountains are included.  Well, they are as typical as I can get.

    • Ann, resistance is futile… Thank you.

      • I know – I can’t believe those images – one couldn’t paint that – surreal. So I don’t feel like a guilty mom, I’m marching upstairs right now, entering my daughter’s room and adding to her list of – Places I’m Going to See :-)

        • I have lots of abstracts, some shot in Houston’s public parks 10 minutes from my home. Scroll down and look around.

        • I see I must follow now that I know you’re not only exceptionally talented – you’re nice. In my book that equals follow (but most importantly – the nice part ;-) )

        • You’re welcome and thanks for the luck. I begin each day with fingers crossed and end each day with hugs and a prayer ;-)

  11. Simply stunning work!

  12. WOWZA – that is so cool!
    It would make a great piece of art – very large – hanging behind someone’s sofa in a tropical climate! All white room – and that amazing splash of color!

  13. Great shots, I too love the Lake Bled #1 for its artistic slant but I also like the row boat raceway. Looks to be a lovely place to visit.

    • Thank you. Today I will drive around in the mountains.

      May 7, 2014 at 8:07 pm

      • What hire car do you have, anything interesting?

        May 8, 2014 at 2:29 am

        • VW Sharan, seats 7, 2L diesel. I stopped it to take a picture, get back in and the power steering quit working. Drove 18K on twisty mountain roads, almost impossible. Stopped for a minute, back on, power steering working. Just called the rental company to complain. My arms are sore.

        • Oh no! Hope you get something better as a replacement :-)

          May 8, 2014 at 11:51 am

        • I am finding that dealing with the rental company is impossible. I call, they will not give an answer. They want to call back. They Know I don’t have a working mobile. They call the hotel back, and we are out to dinner.

        • They will not replace it without charge unless we can start it and the trouble light goes on. Since the problem is intermittent, that is the same as saying they will not replace it without charge. If the PS goes out at the right time, I might die.

  14. Beautiful, beautiful!
