Nice pic, especially 'cos it's shot in my country Slovenia
Let me give you some background on canyon Blejski vintgar
This narrow gorge was formed in and after the last iceage in Alps, the river Radovna was forced to carve itself in a different path becouse the glacier blocked her path, which than created this wonderful place- Vintgar ends with a waterfall Sum (pronounced SHUM), created after the river hit a softer rock beneath and later carved it into a fall!
Any others that are reading this come to Slovenia and visit this pearl of the Alps #7497

Zdravo Iztok. Hvala za vase besede. Slovenia je zelo lepa. The best thing about this place is that some of the locals that I know didn't even know that Blejski Vintgar existed. Other favorites of mine are Pekel and skocjanska jama. #11279
