The church on the island

Lake Bled

Like the Church of the Good Shepherd in New Zealand, the Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church on the tiny island in Lake Bled, Slovenia, has had countless photos taken of it. But there is nothing quite like being at some of these iconic places yourself and capturing your own version. The typical images of this magical spot are in bright saturated colour, so I decided to give this grainy monochrome treatment a try instead. I hope you like it.

    Um, how do the parishioners get there? Where’s the marina?

      Hi Gary! Just at the bottom right of the island you can just see a path leading diagonally down to a tiny little jetty sticking out into the water. There’s another one on the opposite side. One nice thing about the lake, and which keeps it such a tranquil spot, is that motor boats are forbidden, so the little ferries that run across to the island are all oar-powered! Apparently it is a really popular wedding venue.
