Slovenia Photo Tour Oct 2021 NOW BOOKING Today was spent travelling a couple of hours to a place called Solkan. Now, I bumped into a fellow photographer (Slovenian) yesterday at Kranjska Gora and he happened to mention this scene of the three bridges. I was intrigued enough to head down this morning to take a look. True to form, the scene does look impressed for I absolutely love photographing industrial landscapes, power stations, large mills, factories, that kind of thing and this scene ticked all the boxes for me. Sadly the weather was a little flat and lifeless although, for this particular scene, I thought it suited perfectly. The bridge at the bottom of the image is the Solkan Bridge, and with an arch span of 85 metres, it has the world's longest arch span of any railroad bridge (or so I believe anyway), mainly because later construction technology used reinforced concrete to build bridges (thanks Wikipedia). It was built in 1905 but restored by the Italians in 1927 after a horrific blast saw the arch fall into the Soca River below. It measures 220 metres in length and 36 metres in height. It spans the gorgeous green coloured waters of the Soca River, itself a river measuring 138km in length and running through Slovenia into northeastern Italy. I personally love this scene but do you? It was a shame that I did not see any trains running otherwise I would have loved to have captured one on the bridge itself but nevermind, maybe next time. One quick point to mention is that I used my Kase 10 Stop ND filter to give me a shutter time of 30 seconds. This allowed for all the moving traffic to disappear from the image completely, therefore leaving a nice and clean image to enjoy. In truth, there were probably only around half a dozen cars to be seen in the entire scene but all the same, I did not want them featured in the image.
