geology_AZ_10Bohinj’s brief history in terms of human inhabitants go back “only” to around 2500BC. But the geological history goes back millions of years.

Bohinj lies in Julian Alps, the most southeastly part of the entire Alpine chain. Mountains around Bohinj are formed mostly of limestone and that is one of the reasons why Bohinj has such rich geodiversity.

From a photographic point of view limestone landscape is something every photographer dreams about. White and gray colours of the limenstone match perfectly with the blue colours of the lake, streams and rivers, creating mystical, mysterious and positive atmosphere.

Numerous shapes of limestone layers create for beautiful photo motives. Fresh water melts limestone surface and forms karst shape landscapes which are spectacular. For macro lovers fossil remains can be a challenge, first to find them
and then to capture them on the sensor.
