This is a view of Mt. Triglav and its immediate range in the Julian Alps of western Slovenia taken just after sunset this morning, a few minutes after take off from Ljubljana’s Jože Pučnik International Airport. At 2,864m (9,396 ft), it’s Slovenia’s highest peak.
This was only ten minutes or so into my flight to Munich this morning. I’m glad the pilot chose a route that brought us this close. The view was worth getting up at 04:30 for.
Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,062 straight, was snapped on 30 November 2016.
