I have recently returned from running my annual Winter in Slovenia workshop. This is the twelfth year in a row that Marko and I have run a winter workshop in this spectacular country. Normally snow and cold temperatures are fairly guaranteed at this time of the year, but on this occasion we managed to coincide with a mild spell! With everybody expecting snow scenes it was quite a challenge for us, but with so many years of workshops we thankfully have a long list of locations to make use of, even in less than ideal conditions. By the end of the workshop we had captured a wide variety of interesting shots. The set of images does look more like the result of an autumn workshop, but nevertheless they still show the beauty of this fascinating country!
Even though we didn't get all of the snowy shots we'd hoped for this was still an enjoyable trip. Our half-day climb up to the summit of a mountain in neighbouring Austria was well worth the effort as it proved to be the only time that we were able to shoot true winter conditions! Our 2016 winter workshop will be offered to all those on the waiting list shortly. There is a chance that we may have a space available, so it's not too late to get your name added to the list!
I now depart for Bulgaria where I'll be running two landscape and wildlife workshops back to back. I'm looking forward to working with the dalmatian pelicans once again....and hopefully returning with another 20,000 images!
