Cerknica Lake Horizons

Here are a couple shots from Cerknica Lake, or Cerkniško jezero, Europe’s largest intermittent lake. When full, it’s also the largest lake in Slovenia, reaching up to 38 square kilometers (15sq mi). Even when it’s not, it’s still a gorgeous place to visit, even on a day as cloudy and misty as last Thursday.

It’s located near the town of Cerknica in southwestern Slovenia, about 50 kilometers south of Ljubljana, making it an easy place to reach. A little more info on Wiki here and on this Slovenian karst region site here.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge asked for horizons; I think these will fit the bill.
