Looking at the Karawanks. 

March 16, 2018

This week’s striking image of Slovenian topography is from the lens of Aleš Košir, a professional photographer whose work can be seen at Aleš in a broad range of genres, includuing portraits, weddings, theatre, architecture and events, and this shot is of the Stol massif, as seen from Lake Bled.

Stol, or Veliki Stol, means the Big Chair, and is the highest mountain of the Karawanks Range, at 2,236 m, sitting on the border between Slovenia and Austria. The peak wasn’t climbed until 1794, but since then a considerable amount of infrastructure has been developed in the area, and there are numerous hiking and climbing paths, ranging from easy and undemanding to very difficult (see here), as well as opportunities to paraglide down to lower elevations.
