The story behind the image

We were on our trip back from Slovenia to Munich and opted for a stopover in Bled which had been recommended to us. And indeed, the lake provides countless beautiful views, and the village provides a nice, somewhat old-fashioned feeling. You’ve got a park for extended walks as well as plenty of cafés and restaurants.

I like this image of Bled Castle overtowering the lake because of its clarity – both the colors and the water are clear an unspolit. Bled? Well worth a visit!
